Marvel Assembles Avengers Initiative Lite, Now Available for Free
Marvel Entertainment has released a treat for fans of the Avengers and fighting games. If you’ve ever wanted to try out the Avengers Initiative game but didn’t want to shell out $6.99, then hurry on down to the App Store and get Avengers Initiative Lite!
It plays like Infinity Blade and stars the Hulk. That sentence alone should get fans tapping repeatedly at their screens to download the game. Its story involves the breach of The Vault, where S.H.I.E.L.D. keeps a collection of superpowered baddies behind bars. Someone busts open the doors and lets out all of the villains, spreading all kinds of chaos.
Nick Fury sends in the Hulk to investigate and do what he does best: SMASH! There are future episodes coming down the pipeline that will feature other Avengers heroes. This should give players who bite and decide to purchase the full game a lot of content to anticipate.
Trying before buying affords undecided fans a look at the game’s gorgeous HD graphics, the effects of which are enhanced by a Retina display. It also lets them get a feel for the Infinity Blade-styled action as they face off against a bunch of Skrulls in the tutorial. You’ll be gamma-crushing villains like a pro, especially if you’re an Infinity Blade veteran. The game features Marvel XP, the company’s cross-platform social and stat-tracking service. Players can use the service to track progress, achievements, and even check up on content from other games like Avengers Alliance.
If you’ve been on the fence and want to see what the game is like, go download it now! Let us know in the comments which Avenger is your favorite and what you’d like to see in future episodes.
