Marvel: Future Fight has been kicking some serious tail since it was released for free download on Android and iOS back in 2015. If you haven’t played the game before then here’s what you need to know. The game allows you to unlock and collect dozens of playable Marvel characters with which you can organize strategically into teams to help you in the main story or other multiple modes of play.
According to Dylan Balde of CBR:
“Marvel: Future Fight was developed in 2015 by Netmarble Studios as a complement to Kabam’s Marvel: Contest of Champions, which was released for Android and iOS around the same time. It tells the story of a dystopian world in which Thor, Black Panther, and Black Bolt are all that’s left of a dying civilization, the other heroes having been annihilated by an unknown force. The prologue features a dying Nick Fury sending his robotic assistant Jocasta to the past to appeal to the World’s Mightiest Heroes for aid, while also begging the player to help save the future. The narrative involves plenty of interdimensional travel and alternate versions of the same characters, some more volatile and aggressive than the rest. It also foretells the invasion of Thanos and the Black Order in Avengers: Infinity War.”
Depending on what’s happening in the world of Marvel, the game will update from time to time with new characters and missions. For instance, the latest MCU film is Ant-Man and the Wasp, so the playable characters were recently updated in their movie likeness alongside the misunderstood villain, Ghost. But coming soon to Future Fight are two fiery mercenaries with an affinity for trouble who also had a big win in the box office this summer.
Both Deadpool and Domino will be making their way to Marvel: Future Fight per an announcement made at SDCC this year. The trailer teases a battle with Domino and Cable both looking a little more comicbooky and less like Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin from the movies. The fight then gets comedically interrupted by the Merc with a Mouth in a way that only he could deliver, before entering the battle for himself.
