Yesterday Linkin Park took part in Rio+Social, a global conversation that focused on topics related to social good and how new media can help foster positive solutions to the world’s biggest problems. During the event Linkin Park and Kuuluu Interactive announced a partnership that will see a video game released to tie in with their Power The World inititative. The game has no definitvive release date yet but is slated as "Coming Soon". The game will be a social game for the PC and will be available on Facebook. You can watch the debut trailer for the game below and keep up to date on news about its release via the official website: LPRECHARGE.COM.
Check out this video of Mike explaining a little about the game:Recharge takes place in a not-too-distant future where humans have depleted all natural resources on the planet. Society and what little energy stores remain have been seized control of by machines and an elite minority. Players join cooperatively to battle their captors and recharge the world with clean, sustainable energy.
The game's brand-new concept and focus stands apart from other casual online games by intersecting social gaming, social media, and social responsibility in an engaging manner. Recharge will be made available to all players through Facebook.
