If you’ve always wanted to fight for what’s right and answer the call when humanity comes knocking, but you’re really a bit too into your phone to be bothered, we may have the perfect solution for you: MARVEL Strike Force!
The new FoxNext role-playing game — which allows you to work with S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and assemble the Marvel dream team you’ve always... imagined — became available for free download today for your phone or tablet.
The game boasts an entirely new storyline and a lineup of 70-plus Marvel heroes and villains to pick and choose from, in order to create unheard-of alliances to strategically battle an assault on Earth by a fearsome new enemy threat.
To get a sense of what you’re in for, check out the trailer above, which Entertainment Weekly debuted today, and features some drama, some action, and some humor — just like the best Marvel movies. It finds a new S.H.I.E.L.D. recruit giving voice-over as he flies off into battle alongside the uncommon crew of Drax, Captain America, Elektra, and Thor.
It doesn’t end well for the new recruit, but it could bode well for all you would-be heroes/phone lovers out there.
As the trailer description says, "It’s time to fight! Gather your squad and prepare for the battle to save Earth!" You can check out MARVEL Strike Force via the Apple App Store and Google Play.
