EA Announces “Kony 2013”
Los Angeles — Electronic Arts, the company behind the popular Madden NFL video game series, announced the next version in its new Kony series today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3.
“At EA, we are dedicated to bringing the most realistic aspects of Kony 2012, then taking them up a notch for Kony 2013,” EA representative Connor Ellison said during the company’s E3 conference Monday.
In Kony 2013, players take the role of a group of young Americans tasked with utilizing social media and foreign atrocities in order to sell wristbands, t-shirts, and posters.
Kony 2013 features better graphics, an improved artificial intelligence system, and a robust online mode where people can play their social media campaigns against each other.
“We received a lot of feedback after Kony 2012, and what players wanted most was a way to compete against their friends to see who could get the most video reposts on Facebook,” Ellison said.
Kony 2013 is slated for a Fall 2012 release.
