Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy Coming to Marvel: Avengers Alliance, Taskmaster to Be a Playable Character
This summer will bring Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy to the theaters, so it shouldn’t be a shock this is going to be adapted for gamers.
Looks like Marvel is one step ahead, for both films will be coming to Facebook, iOS and Android later this month in the form of extra content for Marvel: Avengers Alliance.
The game, in which players fight teams of Marvel villains in turn-based battles, will feature Winter Solider missions that “run parallel” to the film’s plot.
Marvel’s Vice President of Games Production TQ Jefferson explained in an interview with MTV,
We bring familiar elements and characters from the movies and the comic books, and use them in a unique way that all players can get behind. Regardless of their level of Marvel knowledge. It’s a really huge, unique, evolving world, and it’s growing all the time.
Guardians of the Galaxy content details were not given, aside from the game will introduce members individually over a period of time, instead as a team.
In addition to this, Taskmaster will also be introduced as a playable character in an upcoming update.
In MAA, when you recruit him, he makes reference to this and how much disdain he has for S.H.I.E.L.D. for putting an end to the nice setup he had in that game. After all, he’s all about the money
