Publisher MAG Interactive and developer Qiiwi Interactive today announced the global launch of Backpacker Arena, the new mode for their travel trivia game Backpacker (you can get the game for free via the App store and the Google Play store). The new mode, allows players to challenge each other, chat and compete for placements on global leaderboards. With over 1 million players already testing their quest for global travel knowledge in Backpacker’s single-player mode – Backpacker Arena moves it up a notch with quick PvP matches for competition enthusiasts.
“We’ve been working on ways to enhance the social aspects of Backpacker ever since it launched last year and as a result the Backpacker Arena was born,” says Erik Dale Rundberg, CEO of WeAreQiiwi. “It has shown great results during the testing phase and we believe that players worldwide will enjoy the introduction of challenging PvP round-based quiz fights, chat boxes and leaderboard placement.”
In Backpacker Arena players battle it out in two-round trivia matches, answering questions on different categories including travel, food and history or focus on a specific country/city, that taps into their expertise playing Backpacker in single-player mode.
Players challenge other trivia aficionados and climb weekly and global leaderboards to collect trophies and, ultimately, open chests for exciting bonuses. During or between rounds, players can interact through the in-game chat box, making Backpacker Arena, a truly social experience.
