Trivial Pursuit, the classic Hasbro game that asks players questions from a plethora of disparate categories, will soon been made available on mobile thanks to Gameloft. Dubbed Trivial Pursuit and Friends, players will attempt to test their knowledge with questions that are new to the game, as well as new ways to play.
update: October 22nd, 2015 9:41am PST: For those of you waiting for this game to arrive, Trivial Pursuit and Friends is now available for download off of Google Play for free. We’ve added the link to download it at the end of this article as well as screenshots and a trailer to check out as well.
Also the game includes customization options, though none of those options have been revealed as of yet. Regarding the new social elements, Gameloft mentions that “We’re thrilled to collaborate with Hasbro to bring a new mobile offering with fun social features that allow fans from around the world to play and interact with each other wherever they are.”

Right now there is no specific release date for Trivial Pursuit and Friends, only that it will be arriving in the coming weeks.
