Marvel is on a roll right now. In addition to adding the new heroes for Disney Infinity, Marvel is widening its horizons for Guardians of the Galaxy content by spreading to a handful of its other games including Marvel Heroes as well as other social and mobile games. Marvel made the announcement during a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con.
With the coming launch of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, the free to play massively multiplayer online game ,Marvel Heroes 2015, will allow players to join forces with Drax, Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, and Groot together with a few other heroes from Marvel?s lineup. Marvel?s Facebook social game, Marvel: Avengers Alliance, will also introduce a new mission that is focused on the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy. The mobile game, Marvel: War of Heroes, also gets a special raid boss event in September wherein players can use the Guardians of the Galaxy characters. Marvel Pinball also gets an update where the full team and their adversary, Ronan the Accuser, will be available via a new multi-ball table in all versions. Lastly, Minecraft for the Xbox and Xbox Live are going to get Guardians of the Galaxy costume content. The skins and avatar outfits will be made available for both versions of the game in the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Updates are always great and Marvel has timed things nicely with the movie?s upcoming release. With these games getting into the Guardians of the Galaxy vibe, not only will it translate to better player participation, it could also lead to more movie ticket sales.
As a side note, on top of the Guardians of the Galaxy heroes, Marvel made another surprise announcement that the Green Goblin from Spiderman, Loki from Thor, as well as other characters would be joining Disney Infinity 2.0 in a special Marvel Villains figurine set. The trailer for that is set to be released soon and it was previously seen in the original trailer that Villains would join Disney Infinity?s lineup. This new announcement confirms that.
