Have you played the Marvel: Avengers Alliance browser/app game? Did you create a character when the game was first released only to stop playing it and find upon your return that all of your characters had been erased for no explainable reason? Are you barely containing your impotent rage?
Well if you are like me then go ahead and rejoice, because there has never been a greater time to get back onto the bandwagon.
Marvel has just announced that there will be new Captain America-themed and Guardians of the Galaxy-themed content packs will be added to the game. First, there will be a new Spec-Ops mission that should serve as introduction to any new viewers some of the characters that will appear in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie. Spec-Op 17, “Ghost of the Past,” will introduce a Falcon character, a new model for Captain America, a Winter Soldier character and a whole new storyline involving these characters.
And in the words of our dearly departed Billy Mays, “But wait, there’s more.” In addition to a new Spec-Ops and characters The Guardians of the Galaxy are going to be obtainable characters. At least all of the Guardians who feature in the new movie: Groot, Starlord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon, Rocket Raccoon, and even Rocket Raccoon (because really does anyone else matter?).
No real word on how they will be obtained but for sure it will be difficult, so go ahead and start leveling up now. See you noobs in the pvp.
