Hasbro has partnered with CoolGames to bring the iconic board game to instant messaging platform Facebook Messenger.
Users of the service will now be able to instantly challenge their friends to games as well as random opponents from around the world with CoolGames’ matchmaking system.
“We’re excited that we could bring this iconic game, in close collaboration with Hasbro, to the largest social network in the world,” said Laurens Rutten, CEO and founder of CoolGames. “Enhanced by the many social and rich gameplay features that Facebook Instant Games offers, millions of new users can now experience Battleship on their smartphones,” he added.
Battleship for Instant Games has been developed by CoolGames’ in-house studio and is based on HTML5 technology. CoolGames was a launch-partner for Facebook Instant Games in November 2016.
Other successful titles that were released on Messenger are Arkanoid, Snake and Jewel Academy.
