Just a couple of weeks before the release of the highly anticipated film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 in movie theaters, Kabam has released a new tie-in game, The Hunger Games: Panem Rising, for the iPhone and iPad.

Here's a quick rundown of the game, which is free to download and play but does contain in-app purchases:

Developed by Kabam's Beijing studio, The Hunger Games: Panem Rising is an action-packed role-playing card mobile game, where players immerse themselves into the world of Panem. Assuming the role of a resistance leader, players will recruit a team to aid Katniss Everdeen in the rebellion against the oppressive Capitol. Players will be able to train and equip their squads with special items found while exploring the diverse Districts of Panem. Main characters such as Katniss, Gale and Peeta can be recruited and each have their own unique traits and abilities.
