As the gaming industry continues to evolve, Disney’s right at the front of the foray with their games across multiple platforms. Perhaps the largest market left to dominate for Disney, though, is mobile gaming. Through their partnerships and other companies Disney has an incredible opportunity to rise in this field. One of the biggest mobile games of 2015 was ‘Avengers Alliance.’ The game that blends characters from across the full spectrum of the Marvel universe received a boost in parallel with Avengers: Age of Ultron, though its been around for nearly three years. As the summer came to a close and the box office shifted from Marvel to Lucasfilm and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (still Disney…haha) the popularity may have waned a bit, but it won’t be for long.
This past week Disney announced that ‘Avengers Alliance 2’ would enter the gaming marketplace in beta mode early in 2016. Here’s a teaser trailer for the game, followed by the official press statement about the release:
Disney Interactive and Marvel Entertainment today announced that a new turn-based team role-playing game Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2, the 3D visually-enhanced mobile sequel to the smash hit social game Marvel: Avengers Alliance, will be launching soon in limited beta testing in select countries. In Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2, players will assemble a team of Marvel Super Heroes to battle Ultron, Baron Strucker, and more.
Since its launch over three years ago, the original Marvel: Avengers Alliance has become the most successful Disney-published social game with nearly 70 million players and over 100 Super Heroes and Super Villains for players to collect and nearly 1600 different combat situations to battle through, including PVP Tournaments and Incursions.
In this original storyline for Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2, pieces of the planet are disappearing, with entire cities vanishing without a trace. It is a mystery with a single clue: all of the disappearances are at previous sites of Incursions. Villains are taking advantage of the chaos, as well as the massive deposits of Iso-8 left behind by each disappearance. Each player must level up heroes, customize each hero with special abilities and assemble the ultimate team to take into battle.
