If you’re a fan of the hit TV series Downton Abbey, you’ll be pleased to know Activision has released the first gaming experience for iPhone and iPad users, for the first time ever. The premise of the game is as follows:
It was one of the most exciting days of the year for everyone living and working at Downton Abbey. The day of the village fete had arrived and everyone joined in the day’s festivities. A great time was had by all, however upon returning to the Abbey it was quickly discovered that all was not well… The house had been ransacked! An unknown intruder had been through every room, stealing priceless objects and scattering items everywhere! With the Crawley family’s fortunes on the line and with so many Abbey residents with secrets to hide, no one is safe and everyone is a suspect. The Earl of Grantham has hired YOU to help return the castle to its original state of glory. However, the real reason for your employment is to uncover the real mystery of the break-in as discreetly as possible.
Downton Abbey for iOS (and Android) will get monthly content packs, plus a special Christmas pack, similar to how the series usually ends a season with a holiday-themed episode. The sixth and final season is set to air later this year.
I know what I’m doing this weekend (I’m kidding; actually, no I’m not. FML).
