First official Queen game rocks onto mobile

Queen: Rock Tour allows fans to fully immerse themselves in the world of the iconic band.

The first official Queen mobile game is ready to rock out on iOS and Android.

The arrival of play-along rhythm game, Queen: Rock Tour comes at a significant landmark for the iconic band. With 50 years now having passed since the 1971 recruiting of John Deacon – completing the band’s classic line-up – 2021 marks a Queen Golden Jubilee.

A 29-date European stadium and arena tour which was planned for this year, has been rescheduled to 2022 due to the ongoing pandemic.

Queen: Rock Tour gives players a chance to experience the majesty and might of the Queen (live) experience on their phones, supported by extensive attention to detail contributed by the official Queen archives and experts.

The game allows users to fully immerse themselves into the world of Queen. They can progress and score points by playing along to 20 of their most popular hits including Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, Radio Ga Ga, I Want to Break Free and We Are The Champions, while performing at ten historic concert venues from around the world.

Performances can be styled with over 40 official and iconic costumes from the band’s history and trivia facts and exclusive images from the official Queen archives can be unlocked by scoring highly in the game.

Queen: Rock Tour was created in association with Universal Music Group, Hollywood Records and developed by Gameloft for brands.

“Our ambition was to push the boundaries of music and gaming with a fun and rewarding experience that would put players in Queen shoes at pivotal points in their career and make them perform in real-time Queen’s live music unlike ever before,” commented Cedric Ratajczak, creative director at Gameloft for brands. “The creative challenge was to modernise the traditional rhythm-game genre with innovative and mobile-friendly twists.

“We devoted enormous attention to the details of Queen’s history, authenticity and artistry to craft a fitting tribute to one of the most significant bands in rock history and aim at setting new standards for how band-focused music games could be executed on mobile today.”

Andrew Kronfeld, evp marketing at Universal Music Group, added: “Today, Queen are globally recognized as one of the most iconic and important bands in history. Decades after their first live shows together and following on from the huge worldwide box office success of the Bohemian Rhapsody biopic, their popularity continues to grow every year.

“We hope the launch of Rock Tour will introduce their inimitable rock legacy and catalogue to a new generation of fans, through this unique new gaming experience.”
