“S.H.I.E.L.D. and leader Nick Fury realize they “need to call in The Avengers. The Avengers arrive and take one look at the situation and realize they need to call in everyone. You’ll see not just the core Avengers, but characters like Wolverine, Spider-Man and characters from the Fantastic Four. When the Avengers call, everyone comes. At the outset of the game, players learn to customize their character with accessories and weapons, and are instructed in battle. That character will go right into the game and fight alongside Spider-Man or Thor and Black Widow. We want to make the game approachable. Hard-core fans will revel in the appearance of more than 100 characters. You don’t need to know 75 years of Marvel continuity to understand what is going on but if you do, those elements are in there.” said T.Q. Jefferson, vice president of games production for Marvel Entertainment.

Avengers Alliance should launch within the next 3 months.
