Earlier this week, Universal Pictures, in collaboration with Google, announced “The Ultimate Search for Bourne with Google,” an online game inspired by Universal’s Bourne action series ("The Bourne Identity," "The Bourne Supremacy" and "The Bourne Ultimatum").
In this online promotion for "The Bourne Ultimatum" (due in theaters August 3rd), players can assume the persona of a former CIA operative as they track rogue agent Jason Bourne across three continents.
The game, launched this past Monday, allows participants to answer clues that will bring them one step closer to uncovering Bourne’s identity.
Using Google tools including Search, Maps, Images, Translate and YouTube, players can track Bourne online, in the hopes that what he knows will prove helpful in their own quests. With new clues and active game play provided to site visitors each weekday - 15 in total - the game concludes on the film’s opening day.
Along the way, registered users will have the chance to win prizes, including the grand prize: a 2008 Volkswagen Touareg 2, designed to the specifications of the car seen in the film, as well as a four-city trip to international destinations featured in the movie, plus $25,000.
“The Ultimate Search for Bourne with Google” is open to residents of the United States and Canada (except Quebec), 18 years of age or older. (A variation of the game is open to residents of Australia, New Zealand, Germany, the United Kingdom and France.)
