The Sequel to the Smash-Hit Game Is Available to People on Facebook Everywhere
EDISON, NJ — (MARKET WIRE) — 08/17/11 — A+E Networks™ Digital Media and Majesco EntertainmentCompany (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, announced today that Parking Wars 2 has officially launched on Facebook. Based on the hit A&E series, this innovative online game is set to surpass the run-away success of the original Parking Wars game on Facebook.
An all-new season of “Parking Wars” will air on A&E this winter.
“We know our fans will love the addictive and fun Parking Wars 2 experience and are thrilled to be able to offer our advertisers a new and very engaging medium to reach our shared consumer. We are excited to partner with Majesco on this brand new social game,” said Kris Soumas, Head of Games, A+E Networks Digital Media. Added Jesse Sutton, CEO of Majesco Entertainment, “As an upcoming addition to our growing social games portfolio, Parking Wars 2 further demonstrates our strategic focus to create unique online experiences that leverage the quality of incredible network programming.”
Parking Wars 2 offers Facebook players of all ages the chance to build an impressive fleet of vehicles and then park them illegally across the world. Players can purchase almost every kind of imaginable vehicle (from motorcycles to monster trucks) and building storefronts (from taco stands to banks), but ticketing is the real fun. The longer players keep cars parked on their friends’ streets — legally or illegally — the more money they’ll earn, but be careful… The parking signs change frequently and your friends are waiting to steal your cash with another parking violation. Additionally, players can buy a host of other items and car accessories like tires, gas, air fresheners, car wax, bricks and much more.
Parking Wars 2 is now open for everyone on Facebook to enjoy. For more information on the game, please visit here.
