Marvel-ous news everybody, Marvel have just announced their next game. This latest offering however has taken a decidedly different approach to the series. Were going somewhere completely different, somewhere totally unexpected - were going, back to school!
Marvel Avengers Academy is the all new superhero simulator that sees the entire Avenger team transformed back to their young student counterparts. The idea is for the players to sculpt and guide their chosen character through "Super Hero School," shaping and honing their powers along the way.
The fun doesn't stop there - the game also allows you to design and build your own campus. This new game gifts players the freedom to create their very own superhero fantasy training school. You can choose exactly what to build and where to build it - anything from laboratories to sports stadiums, the choice will be all yours.
All your favourite characters will be attending your school for the gifted - confirmed so far, we have: The Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Loki, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Ms Marvel with more big names to come!
According to Marvel Games creative director Bill Rosemann, Marvel Avengers Academy will not only be about developing your characters skills and attending class. The game has a serious undertone that players will have to take into account - a 'Shocking Truth' lies dormant beneath the campus. What that actually means, we are still not sure but it adds another level to game and that, I like.
Marvel Avengers Academy is in development at TinyCo and features "original, narrative-driven" stories written by Marvel Entertainment. The game is set for launch in the first quarter of 2016 and will be free to play on all mobile devices.
Certainly something different from Marvel, this new game will allow players to focus on different aspects depending on interest or play style - you can even go on dates. Just watch that sibling rivalry between Thor and Loki, we know how that turns out! Bring it on, I am pretty stoked about this one.
