Players will be able to bring all the excitement and atmosphere of the original TV programme to their home console, but with the added unique feature of special licensed question packs, each containing hundreds of extra questions from a specific field, such as movies, sports, or music.

As well as the main Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?: Special Editions game, featuring more than 1,200 questions covering all fields of knowledge, the first two special edition packs are also available to download now: South Park – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition and Who Wants To Be A Movie Millionaire?

Further game packs, themed around well-known characters, brands and themes will follow in the future. This new game range is developed by doublesix digital under license from 2waytraffic International, part of Sony Pictures Television, which owns and licenses the Who Wants to be a Millionaire? format around the world.

In Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?: Special Editions contestants participate in the fastest finger round and then scale a mountain of questions in the quest for that elusive virtual million, making judicious use of the three classic lifelines – 50:50, Ask The Audience, and Phone-A-Friend. It’s a social experience, too: up to four friends can compete locally to outdo each other, with each person’s score dependent on their speed.
