Marvel: Avengers Alliance Coming to Facebook

on January 11, 2012 3:00 PM

Disney is bringing a hot new Marvel themed “unique combat role playing experience” to Facebook which will be live sometime in Q1 this year. The game’s story features something called “The Pulse” which is bringing all of the Marvel villains to Manhatten and you as the player take on the role of a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent tasked with forming teams of heroes to take them on.

All the familiar RPG trappings are there for something of this nature with the familiar Facebook-game feature of being able to challenge your friends. I’m sure the latter comes complete with the game posting everything you do to your wall. It looks interesting to say the least, and when it launches might be a good way to kill some time.

Check out a trailer and some screenshots after the break.
