Developed by the band in collaboration with Kuuluu Interactive Entertainment, LP Recharge is a third-person shooter that lets you join an elite resistance unit and save the world from “Hybrids.” These Hybrids are antagonistic androids who have seized control of what few energy sources there are left on the post-apocalyptic planet.
With LP Recharge, Linkin Park, whose members appear in the game as playable characters, aim to “highlight the problems of energy poverty and promote the better management and use of our planet‘s resources.”If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here.
The game also serves as a tie-in for Linkin Park's sixth studio album, “The Hunting Party,” which is scheduled to debut on June 13. It actually offers players exclusive early access to the song “Wastelands” prior to its release on the album.
Linkin Park Recharge - Wastelands is available now in the App Store for $2.99. It's optimized for third-generation iPad, fourth-generation iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with Retina display running iOS 7.0 or later.
Linkin Park Recharge - Wastelands is just the latest iOS title to feature the popular band's brand. Other Linkin Park titles in the App Store include the official Linkin Park app and the Linkin Park game Linkin Park 8-Bit Rebellion.[gallery]
