Marvel: Avengers Alliance provides a combat role playing game experience with dozens of familiar Marvel superheroes and villains, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Wolverine, Hawkeye, Black Widow and many more. Once a hero is added to the Avengers team, players can begin training them to unlock unique abilities and attacks, as well as using "ISO-8" to further customize each character's stats. Players will also be able to face-off against each other, challenging their social graph in super-powered asynchronous PvP battles.
 
Marvel: Avengers Alliance takes place in the wake of a galaxy-wide disaster, known as “the Pulse,” exposing Manhattan to attack from Marvel’s most formidable villains.  Players are recruited as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the secret espionage and peace-keeping organization of the Marvel Universe, to assemble and lead teams of superheroes with a mission to keep New York City safe from the clutches of villains.
 
Marvel: Avengers Alliance will be live on Facebook in Q1 of this year.
