Aristocrat To Release Westworld Slot at G2E
Australian online games developer Aristocrat will release its brand new Westworld video slot this October, at the upcoming Global Gaming Expo 2017 (G2E).
The new title, developed in cooperation with Warner Bros is based on the HBO’s hit series, and set in the not so distant future in the fictional Westworld, a technologically advanced Wild West-themed amusement park inhabited by robots. It gives a somewhat different view on artificial consciousness while portraying a dark dystopian world driven by basic instincts.
The first season of the series premiered on October 2, 2016, and became a huge success, earning an incredible 22 Emmy nominations. Westworld is inspired by the 1973 motion picture of the same name, written and directed by novelist Michael Crichton.
Westworld is produced by Kilter Films, Bad Robot Productions and Jerry Weintraub Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, while the show’s producers are Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, with the assistance of J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk.
The first season ended in December 2016, while the second one is scheduled to be released in 2018.
There’s no detailed information on the upcoming title, but Aristocrat announced the game would take players on an exciting journey, with familiar characters, scenes, and soundtrack. It is reasonable to expect an action-packed release, with plenty of chances to win rewarding prizes and an overall entertaining playing experience.
Siobhan Lane, Aristocrat Senior Vice President, Marketing & Gaming Operations North America said the company was thrilled to present its customers the Westworld Slot Game. According to Lane, the developer’s main priority is to provide a unique and thrilling experience.
She added Aristocrat aggressively pursued only the very best and most influential licenses and said she expected Westworld to be well-received among the players and as equally popular as the hit series.
