The Award-Winning Hit Comes to iOS Devices with Virtual Analog Sticks, Retina Display, iOS 9 support and a Mobile Only Achievement
505 Games today announced that its critically-acclaimed, story-driven adventure Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is now available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad with retina display for full graphical fidelity and seamless gameplay experience.
Directed by filmmaker Josef Fares and originally developed by Starbreeze Studios, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, is a breathtaking tale of two siblings, desperate to save a father on the brink of death. They are left with only one option: set out on a journey to find and retrieve an elixir that can cure his terminal illness. Throughout their expedition they come to rely on one another to survive. One must be strong when the other is weak, one must be brave, when the other is fearful, supporting each other throughout their voyage. Players must master a unique control system to guide both brothers simultaneously across these perilous lands.
A wholly immersive experience, Brothers is an epic story told without words, set in an ever changing world, ranging from craggy mountain peaks to the musty depths of underground caverns. This unique mythical world, which draws inspiration from Nordic cultures and archaeology, is in a state of transition between the old and the new ways. Solve puzzles, explore the stunning locations and fight boss battles, using unique qualities of big and little brother each varying in strength, size and speed.
Exclusive to Mobile
Re-interpreted for touch screen and built from the ground up, Brothers on mobile allows players to engage in the deep narrative with very little intrusion to the actual game screen. Specially designed, dual virtual joysticks give players the functionality of a traditional game controller– while also offering two distinct control styles to give players the freedom to explore the world on their own terms. In addition, players will find a “One Last Game” mobile exclusive achievement as an added bonus.
Since its successful release in 2013, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is regarded as one of the best games of the last generation of gaming consoles and holds more than 50 “Best of 2013” awards.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is now available for download priced at £3.99 on the App Store. Brothers for Android will be available this Holiday 2015 season.
