A&E Network and Activision have teamed up to expand the “Duck Dynasty” franchise into the gaming world, with a video game launching Wednesday on PlayStation and Xbox. The T (Teen) rated “Duck Dynasty” game is available now for $49.99 on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. It’s available for $39.99 on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. Users of the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system can buy a $29.99 version rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and Up), which features a more animated look at the show, along with a variety of mini-games.
In the game, players are able to take on the role of John Luke, Willie and Korie Robertson’s eldest son, as he ingratiates himself as the newest member of the family’s empire. As John Luke learns the family biz, gamers will run into all of his crazy family members — including Si, Jase, Phil and Kay — as they participate in activities ranging from airboat racing and ATV driving to shotgun golf and frog catching.Fans who purchase the game soon will also be able to play Uncle Si’s exclusive Redneck Logic trivia challenge, which tests players’ knowledge of the show in order to win a bonus in-game reward.Also read: ‘Duck Dynasty’ Dad Phil Robertson on Radical Islam: ‘Convert Them or Kill Them’
The A&E show’s ratings suffered a decline in its sixth season that ended in August, with only 3.8 million viewers tuning into the finale (as opposed to the 6 million who watched the Season 5 finale.) The ratings decline began after GQ published controversial statements made by patriarch Phil Robertson in December 2013.
