While pop-culture fans gathered in Chicago this weekend for C2E2, gamers flocked to the East Coast for their convention PAX East in Boston. Not wanting to leave the gaming community out, Marvel Games held a secret panel for fans. Moderated by Marvel's Ryan Penagos (AgentM), the group consisted of Danny Koo, Director of Production at Marvel Games, Simon Sim, President of Netmarble US, Marc Sumerak, scenario writer, and Bill Roseman, VP and Head of Creative at Marvel Games. They announced a new mobile game from Netmarble (Marvel Future Fight) called Marvel Future Revolution. Check out the announcement trailer down below.
The game will be an open-world multiplayer RPG, with players given access to different realities and play as alternate versions of their favorite characters. Sumerak gave a rundown of the story, which begins with a "convergence." "Earths from alternate realities are brought into the same space and are doomed to collide with each other," he said. Players will become members of OMEGA Flight. "They are heroes that have come together from multiple realities to work as one unit to save this converged universe."
The Marvel Future Revolution Twitter page posted some supplemental videos to give us a taste of what's to come.
While some of the gameplay will probably take place in New York (this is Marvel, after all), fans will get to see new worlds such as Xandearth (the combining of Xandar and Earth) and the setting of Planet Hulk, Sakaar.
It's a given we'll see a plethora of heroes down the line as the game gets closer to release, but for now, rest assured Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, and Captain America will be on the frontlines in this revolution to save the universe.
The panel revealed their focus on a mobile launch for right now, and there is no set release date. Fans can get any future (pun intended) information by subscribing to the official newsletter on the game's site here. We can only hope their first update is the reveal of what version of Spider-Man this is:
