‘The Dark Knight Rises’ game, The Fire Rises is now live
The Fire Rises is a free-to-play, browser-based real-time strategy game developed by Warner Bros. The Game is a tie in to The Dark Knight Rises. In The Fire Rises, players take on the role of one of Bane’s henchmen, tasked with looting and pillaging Gotham City on his behalf.
The game’s objective is to loot as many valuables from several targets on the map while fending off waves of Gotham’s security officers. As you steal more loot, new locations and crew members will become available. Each stage ends when the Gotham Police Department shows up in full force. Players lose loot for each crew member apprehended by the police. Bane gives players a countdown before the Gotham Police Department arrives, giving players the chance to make a last ditch effort to grab more goods or simply turn tail and run.
Players loot resources by first spawning crew members from sewer covers. Friendly sewer covers appear white while enemy controlled sewer covers appear red. Crew members can capture enemy sewer covers to create new spawn locations, increasing the speed by which players can call up reinforcements. These sewer covers also mark each stage’s exit. Friendly units must return to one of these sewer covers to drop off loot and escape from the Gotham Police Department.
The game features eight crew members, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and abilities. These crew members eliminate enemy forces with a variety of melee, mid-range, and far-range attacks or support allies with healing capabilities, demolitions knowledge, or quick capture speeds.
