On September 6, Marvel will release the first episode for its new game called Avengers Initiative for iOS and Android. Priced at $6.99, Avengers Initiative will take an Infinity Blade approach to combat. We’ll first be able to play as The Hulk as he smashes his way through opponents one at a time.The Avengers Initiative will span four episodes starring Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. These expansions will be free.
For those with Android devices with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, enhanced effects will be one of the perks offered in the game.
According to CNET, Avengers Initiative has a “heavy focus” on in-app purchases. For a game that costs $6.99 up front, we can only hope the alternative method to earning currency doesn’t involved heavy grinding.
My gut tells me this game won’t be as awesome as I want it to be. We’ll find out tomorrow.
