FC BARCELONA ULTIMATE RUSH ON WEB

FC Barcelona Ultimate Rush is an official FC Barcelona game that is being launched on the web exclusively through Poki Publishing. Poki’s co-founder Michiel van Amerongen explains the nature of the partnership: ​“FC Barcelona serves 1 billion fans of all ages around the world, not only in Spain and other European countries, but also in the United States, Latin America and Asia. Poki reaches an audience of hundreds of millions of web users in those countries that love football, so this partnership made a lot of sense to us”, says Van Amerongen. ​“We’re also very happy to delight our users with Gamehour’s awesome game, that is currently scoring over 4.5 stars on Google Play. We’re excited about its performance on the web, and will promote the game on Poki.com and via our network of 200+ web publishers.”

Gamehour explains why they chose to team up with Poki: “Gamehour is an experienced developer with a focus on high-quality sports games for mobile. Working with Poki to bring FC Barcelona Ultimate Rush to web gives us access to hundreds of millions of additional users. Aside from important additional exposure for our game and for the FC Barcelona brand, we expect that releasing on the web will be an important driver for mobile app installs.”

The game was brought to web using the Unity​® WebGL build option, with additional support from Unity Technologies and Mozilla, who provided tailor-made support to optimize the game for web. The game is monetized through Poki’s network of trusted partners including Google, through their user-friendly TrueView video ads for web.
