Marvel has announced Marvel Strike Force, a new mobile game from developer FoxNext Games in which Marvel's heroes and villains will unite to take on "one of the biggest threats the world has ever seen."
That threat comes in the form of Ultimus, a Kree Warlord with comic book origins. In comic books, Ultimus is a Kree Eternal - a godlike, immortal being - who rises from his prison below Stonehenge to fight Thor and the Avengers. Marvel Strike Force's Ultimus will maintain most of that origin, including his Eternal status.
Here's a trailer for the game:
In Marvel Strike Force, players are in charge of an organization know as S.T.R.I.K.E. (Strategic Tactical Reserve for Interdimensional Key Events) and will form a team to take on Ultimus, participating in turn-based stragetic gameplay. Marvel Strike Force will also allow players to create "Alliances" and play the game together.
Interestingly, FoxNext is a division of 20th Century Fox, which holds the film rights to Marvel's X-Men and Fantastic Four. Marvel's parent compant Disney has been in reported talks to purchase 20th Century Fox in recent weeks.
Marvel Strike Force will be available in 2018.
