Galaxy on Fire - Manticore RISING out now on the new Apple TV [PRESS RELEASE]
German mobile games studio Deep Silver FISHLABS is happy to announce the release of its space action shooter Galaxy on Fire – Manticore RISING on the App Store on the new Apple TV.
The title, which serves as a prequel to the upcoming mobile game Galaxy on Fire 3 – Manticore, is not a mere porting of a pre-existing iOS game. Instead, it is a full-fledged Apple TV exclusive, whose easily accessible, action-packed gameplay and handling are tailored to the new Siri Remote.
“With Galaxy on Fire - Manticore RISING our pioneering space saga finally enters the living room,” says Michael Krach, Head of Studio of Deep Silver FISHLABS. “Always eager to go where dedicated gamers are, we have worked hard to position Galaxy on Fire – Manticore RISING in the release line-up of the new Apple TV from day one. We are burning to present old and new fans alike an unprecedented gaming experience on the big screen.”
The story of Galaxy on Fire – Manticore RISING centers on the hot-headed rookie pilot Hayley “Manticore” Snocom’s dauntless attempts to save her friends and crew from a supremacy of space pirates in a far-off fringe-world called the Neox Sector. In the overarching narrative of the Galaxy on Fire brand, these events directly lead up to the conflict of the mobile game Galaxy on Fire 3 – Manticore, which is scheduled to be released on smartphones and tablets in 2016.
Galaxy on Fire – Manticore RISING is now available for download from the App Store on the new Apple TV for US-$ 5.99. Interested fans are welcome to join the game’s communities on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as well as check out the official trailer on YouTube.
Additional information on Galaxy on Fire – Manticore RISING is available on the game’s official website. Having started on September 9th, 2015, the registration period for the Closed Beta of the upcoming mobile game Galaxy on Fire 3 – Manticore is already in full swing, too.
