Ubisoft gets Heroes

Ubisoft will develop and publish a game based on the sci-fi drama series Heroes, which began airing on UK terrestrial television earlier this week.

The move follows the completion of a licensing deal with Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group, giving the publisher the rights to produce the game.

The US series follows a group of people across the globe who have supernatural abilities such as telekinesis, flight and time travel.

With a gripping storyline and rich characters, Heroes lends itself naturally to a video game format,” said Christian Salomon, vice president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft. By offering people the chance to interact directly with the show’s captivating universe, there is no doubt that the game will appeal to both fans of the series and avid gamers.”

Tim Kring, executive producer and creator of Heroes added: "We are very excited to be making the Heroes video game with Ubisoft. Time and again, Ubisoft has proven they can turn licensed properties into fantastic games."
