Supersocial’s Multiplayer Roleplaying Game Partners with MGM and United Artists Releasing for the Halloween Season
Supersocial, a developer and publisher of experiences for the metaverse, has announced the next phase of their multiplayer RPG Ghostopia, available exclusively on Roblox. In Ghostopia, hauntings are a good thing, as players seek ways to invite spirits into their lavish, uniquely personalized mansions. Collectible ghosts, including ones based on historical figures and famous fictional characters, are acquired by completing story-based quests. The more players participate in the customization and upgrading of their mansions, the more the entire Ghostopia experience continues to evolve.
An all new addition to the Roblox platform, Ghostopia delivers stellar graphics, fun interactive NPCs, unique items, and captivating gameplay giving it the authentic appeal of a AAA game. However, Ghostopia is not just an average RPG; its one-of-a-kind open world provides an environment for residents of the spooky town to roam freely from downtown to the mystic forest, collect materials to conjure into items, and socialize with other players.
As part of the game’s launch, Ghostopia will feature a special partnership with MGM and United Artists Releasing’s film The Addams Family 2, allowing players to participate in an in-game scavenger hunt throughout the interdimensional landscape to find postcards ‘misplaced’ by the creepy and kooky Addams Family. Each postcard discovered provides a clue to the next; players who collect them all can drop them off at Ghostopia’s post office to receive exclusive decorations for their mansion inspired by The Addams Family 2.
This partnership is only one of the many astonishing elements coming to the world of Ghostopia as Supersocial will continue to provide exciting and unexpected new content that all players will enjoy. The partnership with The Addams Family 2 is merely the first of several planned experiences that will invite fans into this unique part of the metaverse.
The Addams Family 2 is now playing in theaters, and available on demand.
