USAToday reports that Hasbro is teaming up with SyFy Games to bring a G.I.Joe social game to Facebook.
"The world will be populated by the heavy hitters from our lore," says Derryl DePriest, Hasbro's global brand vice president for G.I. Joe. The team at Hasbro that worked with Syfy "really understands the power G.I. Joe has with an audience of now-grown men who grew up with G.I. Joe, loved the characters, loved the entertainment behind it, and saw how that translated into a great game experience."
The game will take place in an enclosed battlefield, with a handful of G.I. Joe or Cobra characters you control with friends or the computer and be released around the time of G.I.Joe: Retaliation on June 29. The game will focus on classic Joe Vs Cobra lore from the 80's and feature character and vehicle designs from various toy incarnations. Different components will be added to the game as they go along to keep things fresh.
