To get you better prepared for one of the year’s biggest blockbusters opening July 12, we’ve put together a rundown of all the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ exclusive content that will get you warmed up to be blown away.

Pacific Rim Jaeger combat simulator game

To defend the human race you’ll build and equip a Jaeger (a giant robot controlled by humans) with a selection of weapons and features. Across five battlefields your Jaeger will fight the Kaiju, who have risen from beneath the Pacific Ocean and wreaked havoc on earth. 

Pacific Rim Vuforia app Available for Android, this augmented reality fighting game, powered by Qualcomm Vuforia technology, puts a miniature cityscape with monsters on any flat surface as the stage to fight for the future of the human race. Battle your giant Jaeger robot against your choice of monstrous Kaiju on a flat surface with an object that the app can use as a point of reference (something as simple as a piece of paper will work) to bring the Pacific Rim experience to life. 

Watch a sneak peek of Pacific Rim, test your Jaeger pilot skills to be entered to win weekly prize packages (including a Samsung GALAXY S4), create your own Jaeger name and follow the latest news on the film.

Acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro reveals his approach to creating this epic film, what inspires him and how technology is fundamentally changing storytelling.
