Even though they are not in the upcoming The Avengers movie, releasing on May 4, Spider-Man and Wolverine get in on the act in the next upcoming Facebook game…along with many more Marvel Avenger superheroes.
From the official press release:
Marvel Avengers Alliance, a new game developed by Playdom. This is the first Marvel title for Facebook, and also represents the first Disney entertainment brand to come to Facebook gaming.
Marvel: Avengers Alliance provides a combat role playing game experience with dozens of familiar Marvel superheroes and villains to be collected, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Wolverine, Hawkeye, Black Widow and many more. Once a hero is added to the Avengers team, players can begin training them to unlock unique abilities and attacks, as well as using “ISO-8” to further customize each character’s stats. Players will also be able to face-off against each other, challenging their social graph in super-powered asynchronous PvP battles.
Marvel: Avengers Alliance takes place in the wake of a galaxy-wide disaster, known as “the Pulse,” exposing Manhattan to attack from Marvel’s most formidable villains. Players are recruited as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the secret espionage and peace-keeping organization of the Marvel Universe, to assemble and lead teams of superheroes with a mission to keep New York City safe from the clutches of villains.
Marvel: Avengers Alliance will be live on Facebook in Q1 of this year. More details and additional character reveals to come, so be sure to stay tuned!
Marvel Avengers Alliance will release on the social media giant sometime in the first quarter 2012. Check out the preview video:
