All-new PAC-MAN experience features co-op play, user-created mazes, and is fully playable and streamable for free entirely within Twitch on PC
Seattle, WA – May 22, 2020 – BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and Amazon Games are celebrating the 40th anniversary of PAC-MAN today with the announcement of PAC-MAN LIVE STUDIO. Coming in June this all-new PAC-MAN experience is playable for free directly in a live Twitch channel on PC. PAC-MAN LIVE STUDIO will not require any download, allowing players to jump right into the action.
PAC-MAN LIVE STUDIO will offer a number of challenging modes. Beyond competing to set the high score with their friends at home or in the arcade, now players can compete against the entire world, live on Twitch. Game modes include:
Studio Mode – Create and share your own maze creations. The most popular mazes will be more visible on the global charts, giving you the chance to be recognized as a top creator!
Endless Mode – Up to four people play simultaneously with just one life per level, working together to achieve the highest combined global ranking while competing against each other for the bragging rights of most points scored on the team.
Select Mode – Up to four players team up cooperatively to achieve the max score on any community-generated maze; you might even find mazes created by your favorite streamer!
Classic Mode – Travel back to 1980 and experience the original PAC-MAN game.
Whether they strive to master one mode or compete in them all, Twitch users will be able to play and stream PAC-MAN LIVE STUDIO for free, coming this June. For more information visit: amazongames.com/games/pac-man-
