Law & Order: Legacies is an episodic iPad game based on NBC’s Law & Order TV series, and it’s due to be released this month on the iPad App Store. It will be a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
Here’s a little more background on the app:
Law & Order: Legacies delivers the ultimate Law & Order experience as it assembles a full roster of investigators & district attorneys from multiple Law & Order franchises all into one ‘season’ of seven episodically released games!
Law & Order: Legacies includes the likenesses of popular Law & Order investigators, including: Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach, Law & Order), Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt, Law & Order), Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: SVU) and Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston, Law & Order) for a Law & Order “Dream Team” of characters both past and current.
In Law & Order: Legacies players will take on the roles of both investigator and district attorney as they hit the streets to gather evidence and then enter the court room to prosecute the case. As in every episode of the Law & Order series, choice and morality are key factors and every decision made throughout Law & Order: Legacies will affect the outcome and can lead to multiple endings for each case.
I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of Law & Order, but I enjoy the various versions of it and I’ve certainly watched plenty of episodes of the original and SVU and Criminal Intent and Law & Order LA. Oh, maybe I’m more of a fan than I realized. I could see this being quite a fun game if it’s done well. It’s also interesting to see that the developers, Telltale Games, are planning to release it on iPad and iOS before they release PC and Mac versions next year.
So lookout for this one hitting the iPad App Store this month, and I’ll post again when I see it released.
