Actor and filmmaker Tom Hanks is releasing a trivia game called "Hanx 101 Trivia" that will have thousands of questions involving history, math, geography, food and other categories.

The game will be released Friday on Apple Arcade. It requires a subscription of $4.99 a month or $49.99 a year. There is a one-month free trial.

"Play, learn, compete and become a trivia master with 'Hanx 101 Trivia,' created and developed in partnership with actor and filmmaker Tom Hanks," Apple said Tuesday in a statement.

The game is the first trivia game on the Apple Arcade platform. Hanks' role in the game is narrating the questions although it might come off that the game is specifically about him.

The game allows players to either beat their own high score or to play with others in a head-to-head challenge or with a team.

A release from the creator of the game, Blue Line Studios, stated that the game can encouraging learning "a new fun fact every time you play."

Hanks, 66, is among the most acclaimed film actors of his generation. He has won Academy Awards for Best Actor for "Philadelphia" and "Forrest Gump," and has starred in several blockbuster films.
