Some of the coolest apps in 2018 are augmented reality (AR) -- a way to superimpose computer-generated elements over your actual environment and create a visual composite that augments the real world. From playing Pokemon Go to planning your next IKEA bedroom, AR has proved to be both a utility and form of endless entertainment. Enter The Purge AR app, which we hope will only serve as the latter!
With this new app, available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play, you can scan your space with your phone and then add defenses to make your room Purge-worthy (think: barbed wire and bear traps). Once you've customized your room, put it to the test to see if you have what it takes to survive Purge Night! As you clear increasingly difficult stages, you will earn ever better objects to safeguard your space. It's the perfect at-home companion to The Purge TV series, now airing on USA Network!
Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse Productions, The Purge revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night. New episodes air every Tuesday night on USA at 10/9c!
