Poptropica players will travel to the bottom of the sea in “Mission Atlantis,” an episodic quest available now to Poptropica members with Early Access. The adventure on the popular virtual world for kids will become available to the public on May 15, 2014.
On “Mission Atlantis,” players will discover that it’s a different world under the sea, and that an ancient secret at the bottom of the ocean is beyond their wildest dreams. In the first episode, their mission starts out simply. Players take a submarine into the deep ocean to photograph rare sea creatures for a nature documentary. They explore mazes and figure out how to get the perfect shot of each fish. Then a stunning discovery leads them to a brand new mission – and from there, the underwater adventures continue.
