Are you a Marvel Fan? If yes then you can thank me later for the update I am sharing with you. Marvel Entertainment recently announced a new game- Marvel Strike Force – a mobile Role Playing Game (RPG) that features popular Marvel superheroes teaming up against supervillains in epic battle scenarios.
Developed in collaboration with 21st Century Fox’s FoxNext Games, Marvel Strike Force will arrive on Android devices next year (2018) and will feature a microtransaction-based gameplay for unlocking new items and progressing to higher levels.
There are currently around 70 characters to choose from, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, Daredevil, Hulk; Defenders like Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, Guardians like Groot and Drax, and many of the Avengers. Iconic wildcards like Night Nurse, Doctor Strange, Quake, etc will also be available. Certain characters when fielded together – like Rocket Raccoon and Groot, for instance – will have unique and powerful abilities. Every character has a variety of gear and unique skills that can be upgraded to improve their strength and unlock new tactical options.
“In “MARVEL Strike Force,” war has come to Earth as Ultimus, a Kree warlord, has jumped from one dimension to another, conquering every version of Earth along the way. He has finally arrived at our doorstep, and it’s up to us to stop him,” explained FoxNext Games Creative Director Jason Bender. “The player commands S.T.R.I.K.E., the Strategic Tactical Reserve for Interdimensional Key Events; the only line of defense against threats like Ultimus.”
A teaser trailer for the game was released, providing a glimpse at some of the player-vs enemy content, but Bender says player-vs-player combat will also be included from the start as well. Alliances will also be available for you to join with friends and other players to team up and battle Ultimus together, including conquering Raids, a cooperative game mode that provides some of the most powerful rewards in the game. “The Alliances that work together most effectively will be able to conquer the toughest Raids, but the mode is tuned to be fun for more casual players, as well,” Bender assured.
Pre-registrations for the title are already live on the game’s official website, and those who register now will be rewarded with in-game currency, power cores, and a 3-star character unlock card upon the game’s launch.
