Kabam, the leading developer of hardcore social games, today announced it is teaming up with Paramount Digital Entertainment to bring the massively popular and critically acclaimed The Godfather® movie franchise to social gaming in The Godfather: Five Families. The browser based, free-to-play online multiplayer game will be set in the Prohibition era preceding the films, with players and five crime families battling for money, power, and respect and the ultimate goal of becoming “Don” of your family.  Kabam also announced that it has opened up registration for a closed beta test of the game.  Players interested in being a part of this event can sign up by going to a special site for The Godfather: Five Families on Kabam.com at http://www.kabam.com/the-godfather.  Beta tests are expected to begin in several weeks.

“It’s an honor to create a new massively multiplayer social game based on one of the greatest entertainment brands of all time,” said Chris Carvalho, Chief Operating Officer of Kabam. “The Godfather: Five Families will transport millions of players to a living world of 1930s gangsters and family alliances that will transcend what any other mafia-style social game has offered to date.”
