Marmalade Game Studio, creators of iconic digital board games on all platforms, are releasing The Game of Life 2 on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. This award-winning family favourite has already seen great success on mobile, PC, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation, and it’s received over 345 million views on YouTube and Twitch.
 
The Game of Life 2 follows Hasbro’s classic and beloved board game, The Game Of Life, which has been played by millions of friends and families in over 50 countries around the world. With new gameplay, that refreshes the structure of the original, young players can make choices that reflect familiar modern-day values.

An added “crossroad moment” allows players to put off big decisions until later in the game. This means that going to College, getting married, or buying a property, can happen early or late in life. And if they’ve already been to College, they can go back, upskill, and change career paths. Players can start out as a Video Blogger, then go to College and qualify as a Surgeon!

With every spin, young players have the chance to invest in themselves and their future. Every decision earns points for Wealth, Happiness, or Knowledge. Investing in an educational course will earn Knowledge and investing in a property will count towards overall Wealth, while spending money on concert tickets will increase Happiness. These investments steer the course of the game, but the road isn’t always clear! The Game of Life 2 provides the choices, and the Spinner takes care of unexpected twists and turns. In this board game, no life journey goes exactly to plan!

All Marmalade Game Studio games support cross-platform multiplayer. This means that players on Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X can join their friends on mobile, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation. There are multiple modes including Open Online Multiplayer, Private Online Multiplayer, Offline Local Multiplayer, and Offline Single Player.
 
Michael Willis, CO-CEO of Marmalade Game Studio, said: “The Game of Life 2 has met an overwhelming reception from fans around the world and we’re excited to bring the game to Xbox Series S|X and Xbox One! We couldn’t be more fortunate with our young players, many of whom game with their friends and families across multiple platforms. At Marmalade we strive to bring people together through gaming experiences, and with this Xbox release we know we’ll be helping more friends and families to connect through the games they love. And that means everything to us.”
 
The Game of Life 2 is just one of Marmalade Game Studio’s roster of high-quality adaptations of beloved Hasbro board games, including Monopoly, Clue/Cluedo, Battleship, and the original The Game of Life.
 
THE GAME OF LIFE 2 is coming soon to Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X priced $23.99/€23.9919.99 Register your interest now for your launch notification
