Panem Map Reveal By Funtactix And Lionsgate In The Hunger Games Adventures

One of the most asked questions in The Hunger Games fandom got to be what does the Panem map looks like? While we do know Panem is located in the ruins of North American, specific locations of the Districts and Capitol were not given in the books which left fans making up their own Panem maps.

Now for the first time, fans will get to see the official Panem map which is revealed by Funtactix and Lionsgate in the official Facebook social game, The Hunger Games Adventures.

Check out the promotional screenshot below where you can see the locations of District 12 and the Capitol. Meanwhile in The Hunger Games Adventures, locations for District 2 and 11 are also waiting to be unlocked.

Actual populated District locations are labelled with a star as seen in the promotional shot below.

Entertainment Weekly Revealed 90 Second Preview Of “Kingdom Come” By The Civil Wars

Entertainment Weekly has just revealed a 90 second preview of “Kingdom Come” By The Civil Wars which will be included in “The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond” soundtrack. Previews for other songs in “The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond” soundtrack can also be found on Amazon Germany as we had previously reported.

Here’s what The Civil Wars are saying about “Kingdom Come” to Entertainment Weekly:

“It’s our homage to a survival song,” Williams told EW. “And also to trying to keep your cool and stay rational in a ridiculous situation,” White added. “It’s a little bit of ‘It’s going to be OK, it’s going to be all right, we’re going to make it through this,’ even when the situation around you is more dire than you’d care to admit. I think it’s how we all cope.”

“We wrote ‘Kingdom Come’ on the road in Jackson Hole, Wyoming,” he continues. “We were out there for a show, in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I think the landscape helped us capture the mood. We were unfettered, out in the middle of God’s country.”

As for the other songs on the soundtrack (out March 20)? They’ve heard most of them, but…”I think ours are better,” White joked. “Let the headline be: The Civil Wars Are Carrying the Rest of the Artists on the Soundtrack on Their Backs.”

Head over to Entertainment Weekly to listen to the fabulous preview of “Kingdom Come” By The Civil Wars now!
