As we continue to take in the alternate superhero experience that is MARVEL Avengers Academy, we get to add in current-ish projects into the mix.
Civil War has come to campus. Via update no less.
The new build brings the latest Avengers major motion picture to the fore, with a plot especially aligned with the Marvel Avengers Academy universe.
Per the press release:
Following MARVEL Avengers Academyâ€™s Guardians of the Galaxy update last month, the Avengers Academy finds itself in a vulnerable state as the threat of incoming enemies heightens the need for campus safety. Captain America and Iron Man take leadership as the two opposing pillars with vastly different opinions on how to best defend the Avengers Academy, albeit this isnâ€™t merely a campus election at stake â€“ lives are on the line!
Captain America, ever responsible and traditional in his methods, is determined to set up a training facility in order to better train the students. Meanwhile, Iron Man, the self-proclaimed genius with a supply of everlasting ego and charm, believes in building an army of robots to protect Avengers Academy.
These two very different takes on solving the same dilemma force students to choose teams: Captain America vs Iron Man. Lines will be divided between former friends as teams are recruited. Each week, players will unlock a new piece of the Civil War story and different quests and prizes will be available depending on the Super Hero players choose. Foes who were once friends will battle it out in combat and in school-wide activities, such as arm-wrestling, aimed to test students at their very best skills. Who will receive a passing score and be most prepared when Hydra and their band of misfit Super Villains pay a menacing visit on-campus all leading up to one final showdown?
New students enrolling in this brand new update for MARVEL Avengers Academy include Captain Americaâ€™s long-lost friend, Bucky Barnes, aka the dangerous Winter Soldier, who isnâ€™t quite looking to fondly reminisce about the old times. This update also sees the long-awaited introduction of Black Panther, donning a slick outfit, incredible moves, and a mysterious agenda that may just change the Academy forever.
School will officially be out of session if Hydra takes over and itâ€™s up to the players to save it!
