TV shows come and TV shows go, but there will certainly not be anything like Breaking Bad ever again. To many, the greatest written show ever, Breaking Bad managed to become a phenomenon over the years and it is hard to believe that it has been 11 years since the show telecast its first ever episode.
After the show went off-air, the spin-off Better Call Saul was introduced back in 2015 and has been a critical and audience favourite too, ever since. The fans though have been longing to see Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) in some manner possible.
Well, we don't quite know if the much-discussed Breaking Bad movie will ever happen, but here is some good news for the fans of the show.
According to Hollywood Reporter, soon, Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements will offer fans a fresh way to get their fix. Criminal Elements will be a free-to-play mobile game from publisher FTX Games and developer Plamee. The strategy-focused offering will toss players into the deep end of Vince Gilligan's absorbing, morally ambiguous universe.
Gilligan had the following to say in a statement accompanying the game's reveal: "[FTX Games] care as much about the details as our creative team, and I have been very impressed with their commitment to building an authentic extension of the series' story universe. I think this will be a fun experience for fans, to interact with characters from Breaking Bad in a completely new way."
In addition to Walt and Jesse, characters will include fan-favourites Gus Fring, Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut. Players will interact with these familiar faces as they attempt to build and grow a criminal operation that could put Heisenberg's to shame. Gameplay specifics are guarded tighter than Walt's blue meth recipe, but Criminal Elements official description hints at fans navigating moral dilemmas and volatile personalities, all while keeping their illicit biz in the black.
Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements is expected to land later this year.
