Marvel Strike Force could pick up Marvel Heroes refugees

As CMs lock down any speculation about Marvel Heroes’ demise on the forums and players do their best to secure refunds before the title goes away completely, the question looms of what game would be an acceptable substitute to fill the upcoming void. Here is one possibility: Marvel Strike Force.

Created by FoxNext Games and Disney’s Marvel Entertainment, Marvel Strike Force is an upcoming mobile RPG with tactical elements. The game is slated to come out in 2018 and will feature both a single-player campaign and PvP battles.

“We wanted to capture the core mobile fantasy of who wins in a fight. Hydra or Shield?” said FoxNext President Aaron Loeb said. “Earlier, we had the question of who wins in a fight. Hulk or Hulk Buster? Now we ask who wins between the Avengers or the Defenders? You’re trying to solve the puzzle of how to beat the other team.”

There is already a game just like this out – “Marvel Future Fight”. It’s also a single player game (and more like Marvel Heroes than this title is) with PvP and loot box drawn heroes, just like this one is. And just like this one, it isn’t remotely *remotely* close to Marvel Heroes in anything other than the property they’re based on.

We’re not just looking for anything that has Marvel characters at all. If we were there are other games that are far closer to Marvel Heroes than this one is.

This isn’t something that will take up any of the void, it’s not the same. And sure, it may be fun on mobile, I’m not saying it can’t be fun because it could be. It’s jut that it’s not the same thing as an action RPG MMO on PC.

And I’m talking about pre-Omega and “BUE” changes, before the max exodus of PC players when Marvel Heroes was still fairly decent. Console players never got to see what the game actually was like, they got the dumbed down railed up version.

who wins between the Avengers or the Defenders?

The Avengers win by default after Iron Fist does something so colossally stupid that he disables his entire team before the Avengers even show up.

Mobile game = cashgrab = instant pass

Let me know when a proper PC game comes around.

I don’t think another mobile cash grab is going to fill the void. Can you even consider games like this MMO? They’re just single-player games with fights against bots and rankings designed to make you want to be the best. You can only be the best by sinking tons of money into them of course.

There won’t be any real superhero MMO’s worth playing for another year or two at least.

I understand people can be upset about MH losing their license and having to shut down but this new ‘game’ is not really anything to be upset about. Marvel seems to launch a new mobile title about every 12 to 18 months. They already have puzzle quest which was 2013, contest of champions which was 2014, spiderman unlimited was 2014, future fight was 2015 and avengers academy was 2016. This new title just keeps with their pattern of licensing out the IP to new companies every year.

Marvel’s franchise needs and certainly can afford more and better than mere mobile games.

Nice jester. But moving to an entirely different platform is going to be likely off putting for many, for one…

Well mobile games are often seen as a bit of a joke so jester works too ;-)

Yeah…my pigtails caught the error in rising hours earlier this morning. The correction is my edit below. The Freudian typo was unintentional. :(
