The game is available today in North America at major retailers and digitally on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam for $39.99. It will release in Europe on March 16.
“For over a decade, the Beast Quest book series has given loyal fans a richly imaginative, high-fantasy world filled with compelling characters, creatures and storylines. We’re excited to give adventure-seekers of all ages a whole new way to dive into this one-of-a-kind universe,” said Maximum Games CEO Christina Seelye.
Developed by Torus Games with the same sense of sprawling wonder fans of the long-running franchise know and love, Beast Quest takes players on an epic journey to save the ancient land of Avantia from the dark magic corrupting its noble creatures. Survive action-packed battles against mighty bosses, dodging, blocking and countering attacks to turn the tide of combat in your favor. Befriend powerful allies, find secret treasures, and upgrade your hero with new gear and abilities while exploring spectacular environments filled with challenging secrets and surprises.

Beast Quest is the popular fiction book series by Adam Blade, first published in July 2007 by Orchard Books. The hit children’s book series has sold 18 million copies globally and has been translated into 30+ languages, with 120 titles published to date. In 2016, Working Partners, the UK’s leading creator of series fiction for children and a Coolabi Group company, announced a new deal with Orchard Books to publish the hit book series Beast Quest until 2026. Each series focuses on the themes of friendship, fantasy and adventure, encouraging children to read by infusing the subject matter with elements they enjoy. Beast Quest is favored by parents and teachers as the structure encourages children to read a whole series (4 or 6 titles), rather than just one book. The Beast Quest gaming app, co-produced by Coolabi and Miniclip for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, has already achieved over 10 million global downloads and continues to attract several hundred thousand new downloads every month.
