Marvel Contest of Champions is a free to play app that is now available in the App Store and on Google Play. The game, a collaboration between Kabam and Marvel Entertainment, contains over 25 unlockable characters from the get-go.
With Marvel Contest of Champions, gamers will craft a group of heroes and villains taken from Marvel’s extensive universe, and along with single player campaigns there’s also player vs. player (PVP) mode for gamers who love a bit of online competition.
A sign that this app may have legs lies in its creative direction, as Marvel Comics scribe Sam Humphries (The Legendary Star-Lord) penned the game, which features a group of heroes who team up to take down such other worldly villains as Kang the Conqueror and Thanos.
“It was awesome working with Kabam to develop a unique storyline for a video game that stays true to the Marvel Universe,” said Humphries. “Watching the heroes and villains come to life as playable characters on my phone is beyond epic.”
“We could not be more excited about Marvel Contest of Champions,” added Jay Ong, VP of Games, Marvel Entertainment. “The team at Kabam has done an amazing job of translating the heroic combat and dynamic visuals that Marvel fans know and love into an action-packed gameplay experience for mobile devices.”
