Today marks the beginning of a very unique new entry in the Power Rangers franchise!
Twitch TV has officially announced their new RPG series- Power Rangers HyperForce! This series will be a live-stream table-top role-playing game, the first of its kind! 25 episodes are currently planned to air weekly in celebration of the Power Rangers’ 25th anniversary.
A very interesting story outline has been provided for this new series:
Power Rangers Hyperforce is set in the year 3016 at Time Force Academy. A team of Time Force Ranger cadets must band together to defeat an ancient evil who is set on unraveling the very fabric of the universe. Under the leadership of their mentor, Jen Scott, and with the show’s Game Master, Malika Lim, the newly minted Rangers will cross both time and space to complete their mission while running into many familiar eras (and faces) along the way.
The stakes have never been higher as the players learn what it means to be a Ranger in a live, tabletop RPG environment where anything can happen.
Hyper RPG has developed a Twitch Extension that will allow viewers to select a Ranger that is permanently tied to the user’s unique ID. Viewers will be able to send their Ranger out on daily missions, boss battles, and raids, as well as trade cool loot with other players.
And a special cast has been put together for the HyperForce adventures! Announced game players include:
*Peter Sudarso (Ninja Steel Blue Ranger)
*Paul “Bulk” Schrier
*Andre The Black Nerd
*Social Media personalities Meghan Camarena and Christina Vee
At least one guest star has also been confirmed: Erin Cahill (the Pink Time Force Ranger) will be on hand for the premiere episode.
Power Rangers HyperForce is currently scheduled to begin on Tuesday, October 24 2017 and air from 6PM-9PM EST! Be sure to tune in to the Twitch TV RPG Channel for this amazing new series!
