Challenge Your Friends in ‘Backpacker Arena’ - Launching in Denmark

Publisher MAG Interactive together with developer Qiiwi Interactive today announced the launch of Backpacker Arena, a new feature of their travel trivia game Backpacker. This feature allows players to challenge each other, chat and compete for placements on top lists. In the first phase of the launch, Backpacker Arena will be activated only for players in Denmark for evaluation and quality assurance.

"With Backpacker Arena, we aim to greatly enhance the social aspects of Backpacker through introduction of challenging PvP round-based quiz fights, chat boxes and leaderboard placement”, Erik Dale Rundberg, CEO of WeAreQiiwi. “We will closely monitor and analyse the launch in Denmark in order to successfully optimise the Arena feature and, in the end, enable it globally.”

Social interaction plays a huge role in Backpacker and we are exploring new ways to strengthen it even more”, said Johan Persson, VP of Product at MAG Interactive. “Backpacker Arena provides a new way of interaction, as players compete in PvP trivia battles in order to top the leaderboards and prove their globetrotting trivia knowledge.”
