Treat for fans of The X-Files and other hit Same Day as the U.S. series as first-ever FOX themed Breakout Room in South East Asia unveiled
Excitement levels skyrocketed among fans of “The X-Files” series, as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are set to make their highly-anticipated return to the small screen, thirteen years after the original series ended.
The next mind-bending chapter of The X-Files is a thrilling six episode event that will encompass a mixture of stand-alone episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology and paranormal phenomena. Also returning to Malaysian screens are The Waking Dead Season 6B and Marvel’s Agent Carter Season 2 while Second Chance premieres on FOX HD (Astro Channel 724)
To celebrate the occasion, fans will also be able to experience a slice of real-live action from their favourite shows at Code Name: FOX, the first-ever FOX themed Breakout Room in Malaysia/South East Asia at Nu Sentral Shopping Centre.
“We at FOX are pleased to bring viewers the new chapter of this iconic series, The X-Files, which airs the Same Day as the U.S., along with other favourites like Marvel’s Agent Carter, The Walking Dead and Second Chance. For the first time in Malaysia, fans can also visit and engage with the FOX characters in person, through the specially designed FOX themed Breakout Room, as part of our ongoing efforts to bring viewers the ‘best in entertainment first’,” said Ms. Penny Tan, Marketing Director of FOX International Channels (FIC) during the launch.
“Breakout is not your conventional escape room game. Our various themed rooms are individually crafted and designed to provide players with mind-boggling puzzles and tasks to be completed within 45 minutes. In line with our objective to provide a surrealistic and immersive movie-like ‘escaperience’ to our players, we are pleased to embark on this exciting collaboration with FOX International Channels, in celebrating the return of The X-Files and other popular shows. We want to inject a little spark of adventure into the lives of the players, and offer them a new and immersive way to experience their favourite TV shows,” said Mr. Leo Ka-Wai, Head of Consumer Marketing & Public Relations, Breakout Malaysia.
During the game, players will take on their first covert mission as part of the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) under the orders of Howard Stark, to investigate an off-limits zone where crucial information is contained about extra-terrestrial life.
Catch the two-day premiere of the brand new chapter of The X-Files on FOX HD (Astro Channel 724) on 25 and 26 January 2016 at 9.00pm and subsequent episodes every Monday, also at 9.00pm.
