"It was just a matter of time before we’d get to become vampires and werewolves in a virtual world a la “World of Warcraft.”
Habbo, a teen-oriented virtual world site, is teaming up with Summit Entertainment for a “Twilight” world, where users can create customized online characters and connect with other users in a virtual environment.
The site will also include activities, items and polls, and is set for a fall release, just in time for the Nov. 20, 2009 release of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.”
Says Jack Pan, exec VP of marketing for Summit: "Habbo’s understanding of the teen online audience means they can build a unique virtual experience for their users. This is the first time Summit has partnered with a virtual world, so we wanted to be sure to work with a company with a proven track record for providing exciting, engaging activities."
I’m sure it’ll be a huge success. Wish I could grab some of the cash that’s sure to be generated by it!
Can you see yourself getting involved with a site like this, turning yourself into a vampire or werewolf?
