BEDMINSTER, NJ — With the season finale of "24" right around the corner, Verizon Wireless Get It Now® customers won't have to wait until next season to be part of the non-stop adventures of Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU). Available now on select Get It Now-enabled phones, the "24" mobile game brings portable gaming fun to the next level with an exciting new concept that transforms wireless phones into "Spy Phones." "24" lets customers pretend every day is Monday night, giving them access to CTU agents, classified infrared satellite surveillance, phone tracing, electronic lock picks, decryption and more in order to stop a potentially devastating war.
Like the action-packed television series, time is of the essence. Players go through CTU training and earn badges and medals based on the success of each operation. "24" players then join the ranks of Jack Bauer as a CTU agent. Using the Spy Phone, players contact, assign and guide Bauer and other CTU agents through a series of challenges and puzzles. Each mission and decision made affects how the story unfolds.
Verizon Wireless "24" fans can now download and play the "24" mobile game for $2.99 monthly access or $6.99 for unlimited use purchase from the getGAMES shopping aisle of the Get It Now virtual store. Download charges for Get It Now applications vary and airtime charges apply when browsing, downloading and using certain applications. Customers need a Get It Now-enabled handset and Verizon Wireless digital service to access the Get It Now virtual store.
Through a partnership with Fox Mobile Entertainment, "24" the mobile game is published by I-play and is available to over one billion customers through the company's extensive global distribution network.
