With Paul Rudd set to charm audiences once again as Scott Lang, it’s time for some good old fashioned inter-brand synergy as just about every Marvel game currently being supported will roll out an ant colony’s worth of content related to Ant-Man and The Wasp.
The turn-based battle game is getting a new campaign event that allows players to unlock content based on Marvel Comics’ size-bending Super Hero, Ant-Man. His animations run the spectrum of his powers as he can shrink and stealth attack an enemy or grow to deliver a giant man sized stomp which slows down an entire enemy team at once. The Ant-Man content is a limited time event which will allow players to earn enough orbs in missions to unlock the character, so act quickly.
Also coming in the next few weeks is Star-Lord, Groot, and The Wasp. As of writing this, a Groot blitz event is open which lets players battle each other to earn Groot shards to unlock the evergreen Guardian of the Galaxy.
Marvel Strike Force is currently available to download on Google Play and iOS stores.
Mighty mobile fighting game Marvel Contest of Champions launched another celebrity inclusion event as The Wasp (Evangeline Lily) is putting down her own Champion Challenge for fans. Players of the game can log on and find out who the star of the upcoming film has selected to battle players all over the world. In addition, the summer months will also see Ant-Man and Wasp included in the game itself. In fact, on July 5th, Hope van Dyne – otherwise known as the Wasp – is entering the contest as a playable character.
Empowered with a new cutting-edge Wasp suit, Hope van Dyne is ready to make up for lost time as a Super Hero. Like Ant-Man, she can reduce herself to the size of an insect while disproportionately increasing her strength and durability. Couple this with the ability to fly at impressive speeds and evade enemy attacks and you have one deadly Wasp.
Marvel Contest of Champions is available for download on Google Play and iOS stores.
