From Spil Games, VALERIAN: CITY OF ALPHA, the official mobile game of the upcoming feature film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, releases on iOS and Android today, just in time for the film’s release on July 21. The movie is set on the astonishing City of Alpha — an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and culture with one another.
The mobile game begins 590 years earlier when Alpha is still just a space station. The aim is to explore and discover the aliens and planets that will come to be featured in the movie. Players must complete exciting missions, connect with alien species and come up with strategies to help them create the knowledge-sharing metropolis. The ultimate objective is building for themselves the biggest and best version of the City of Alpha.

More About Valerian: City of Alpha
In Valerian: City of Alpha, you’ll get to experience, firsthand, the thrill of creating this "City of a Thousand Planets." The interstellar mobile strategy game takes place in the years that lead up to the beginning of the film and allows you to interact with all of the unforgettable and uber cool alien worlds that Besson and his production team are about to put on the big screen.
Put your strategy and optimization skills to the test while you blast through the vastness of space searching for previously undiscovered worlds and alien species. You’ll get to explore some pretty dangerous corners of the universe and there’s no telling what’s out there! You might wind up stranded on a bizarre planet where sound doesn’t exist or fleeing back to your shuttle after negotiations with a primitive tribe of interstellar warriors doesn’t quite go as planned. But that’s not all. You’ll need to hire new agents to help you out along the way, release probes to scan previously unexplored zones and match species strengths to unlock special bonuses.
About the Film
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, based on the ground-breaking comic book series, created by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres, which inspired a generation of artists, writers and filmmakers. Valerian is one of the top five biggest selling Franco-Belgian comics titles of its publisher, Dargaud.
In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha—an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
The film is produced by Virginie Besson-Silla.
