Yesterday, the company announced the launch of MARVEL Future Revolution during two livestream events.
This is the second collaboration between Marvel and Netmarble Corp. The first was another game – MARVEL Future Fight. Future Revolution is, however, the first open-world RPG mobile game from Marvel.
The story is brand new but includes well-known heroes and villains. The plot features “Primary Earth” – a new “location”, born out of several Earths converging across dimensions.
From the hero side, gamers will see all-time favorites, such as Captain America, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange. The game also features well-loved female characters, such as the Black Widow and Captain Marvel. They are all playable and gamers will be able to modify their characters’ costumes.
They will fight against famous villains, such as Red Skull, Thanos, M.O.D.O.K., and more. Some gray-area characters like Magneto and Loki will also make an appearance.
In addition, fans will be able to explore locations like Midgardia, Hydra Empire, Sakaar, and more.
The story is created by Marc Sumerak, one of the company’s comics writers. Future Revolution is available for pre-order on iOS and Android phones.
Those who register in advance will get a special surprise – one costume for their character of choice.
Future Revolution is just a drop in the ocean, however. Statistics show that:
- 5 out of 10 people will be mobile gamers by 2025.
- Experts predict that the mobile games industry will reach $169.7 billion by the end of the aforementioned year.
- Most of the App Store’s income comes from games.
