Hear The Call of Yara in UNO®, Launching Today from Mattel and Ubisoft with New Game Mode
Today, Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT) and Ubisoft announced that The Call of Yara, the latest DLC for the popular UNO video game is now available globally. Inspired by the tropical paradise island Yara, The Call of Yara DLC will add a thrilling twist to the classic UNO game experience with new features and a game mode.
The Call of Yara is now available to purchase individually on PlayStation®4, Playstation®5, Xbox One consoles, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch™ system, Windows PC, and Stadia for $7.49AUD. The Call of Yara will be playable on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X | S through backward compatibility.
In The Call of Yara, players can experience the UNO game in an immersive environment with a vibrant Yara-inspired board and menu, exclusive themed-cards, and immersive audio soundtrack. After drawing seven cards and 300 Pesos at the beginning of each game, players collect 100 Pesos at the beginning of every turn they can spend to hire the services of Libertad legends. Each character affects the gameplay differently, so players must spend their Pesos strategically to unlock the below services:
- Dani Rojas:
- For 500 Pesos: Pick one player to draw one to six cards.
- For 800 Pesos: All other players draw one to six cards.
- Philly Barzaga:
- For 600 Pesos: Combine four colors to create a Wild card to play instantly.
- For 1000 Pesos: Combine four colors to create a Wild +4 card to play instantly.
- Juan Cortez:
- For 600 Pesos: Discard one to three cards.
- For 1300 Pesos: Discard four to six cards.
- Lucky Mama:
- For 200 Pesos: Prevent one player from calling for a service next turn.
- For 400 Pesos: Prevent all other players from calling for a service next turn.
In addition, The Call of Yara introduces a brand-new card to UNO: The Guerrilla Recorder card. When this risky card is played, each player’s wallet is randomly affected – they may gain hundreds of Pesos to hire the services of Guerrilla legends or lose them all.
