PlotEdit

In a near future, various dimensions start collapsing. Thor, Black Bolt, and Black Panther are investigating the collapse before encountering a dead Captain America and versions of themselves, who they duel and defeat. In the future, a dying Nick Fury sends his robotic aid, Jocasta, to the player, with a message telling the player to get a group of heroes to restore the balance. After obtaining the heroes Captain America, Black Widow, and Iron Man, Ultron attacks Stark Tower. While fighting off the Ultrons, Jocasta remarks that something seems "off" about them, and the heroes see strange things, like a War Machine armor Tony Stark didn't make, and a hostile Vision. Eventually, the Ultrons leave without much visible damage, but Jocasta finds out that they kidnapped a Stark Industries employee, Jemma Simmons, who was studying alternate dimensions. The heroes rescue Jemma from AIM. Jemma tells them that they took her research in dimensions. Soon afterward, while trying to locate MODOK, the heroes encounter dimensional alternates of several heroes and villains, and realize that AIM has built a device to send people between dimensions. Eventually, the heroes take down MODOK, who reveals that he was trying to research Ultron by summoning his dimensional alternates before Red Skull stole the dimension transporter. After that, SHIELD agents begin to be attacked on the streets by thugs with ISO-8 enhanced weapons, and supposedly secret S.H.I.E.L.D. bases are raided. After fighting off the thugs as well as the Hand, the team chases after Red Skull and Hydra. After defeating Red Skull and Ultron, a large dimension transference device is opened and dimensions begin to collapse. Future versions of the heroes appear, attempting to destroy the world to save theirs. Agent 13 reveals to the team that Captain America was imprisoned after he refused to help destroy the world. Eventually, the team defeats all of their future selves and save the world by splitting dimensions through Jocasta, with help from MODOK.

Afterwards, Jemma Simmons contacts her Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. counterpart, and informs her that their dimension's Helicarrier is under attack from the Inhumans, led by Raina. A team of Daisy Johnson, Agent Coulson, and Melinda May, with support from the arriving Sif, manage to defeat the Inhumans and clear them out of the Helicarrier. However, Gordon, a teleporting Inhuman, teleports Raina and himself to Afterlife, an Inhuman town. Agent Coulson's team infiltrates Afterlife, where, after defeating several waves of Inhumans, they encounter Lincoln Campbell, a misguided Inhuman with the ability to control electricity. After defeating him, the team convinces Lincoln that they are the good guys. Lincoln then informs the team that Raina and Gordon fled to a Hydra base in the Arctic. The team then attacks the Arctic base and subdue Raina, but Gordon manages to escape.

Jocasta brings news to Iron Man, that Jemma Simmons has reached Asgard in her quest to study the dimension rifts. She also informs him that Thor is fighting Trolls that have invaded Earth. The team meet up with Thor and quell the invasion lead by Ulik. The troll reveals that he was a distraction, so that Loki and Amora succeed in acquiring Norn Stones for Loki's latest scheme.The team then travel to Jöthunheim where Loki and Amora seek the Norn Stones. Once there they face off against Ymir the frost giant, when he is defeated they learn that Loki has gone deeper into Jötunheim to retrieve the norn stone. The team catch up with Loki where seemingly Amora has betrayed him and taken the norn stone to Muspelheim. The team deduce that Amora seeks to activate the Norn stone with Surtur's help. Arriving in Muspelheim they are confronted by Malekith who is assisting Amora use the norn stones to control the Asgardian Gods. They eventually meet Surtur where they learn that Amora struck a deal with him and has now gone to Asgard. In Asgard Amora charms Fandral, Volstagg, Hogun one by one, and pits them against the heroes. Securing the Odinsword she escapes, beginning Ragnarok with the sword's removal. The Warriors Three are brought back to their senses and join the team against the Ragnarok invasion, Hela and her undead army as well as the Fenris wolf who has come to devour Odin. The All-Father is vulnerable as he is in Odinsleep, the team manage to hold back the invasion just long enough for Odin to awake and be briefed on the situation. Meanwhile, Ymir is back and is attacking Asgard and the team face of against him. On defeating him yet again they learn of his alliance with Jormungand. The team help defeat Jormungand and avert the prophesied death of Thor by his poison. Jormungand reveals to Thor Amora's deal with Surtur to provide him the Odinsword. They track down Amora and try to stop her but she escapes and succeeds in teleporting the sword to Surtur. The team along with Odin track down Surtur and seemingly defeat him only for him to hand over the sword into Odin's hands. Odin then disappears to Midgard (Earth) and the team learn that it was Loki's plan all along and that Surtur has sent Odin to destroy Midgard. The team head back to Earth to stop Odin where they fight to bring Odin back to himself. When the All-Father is back to normal the team inquires of Jemma Simmons. Volstagg assures them she has been taken to a safe place and that Doctor Strange had arrived from one of the dimension rifts.

Doctor Strange explains that Dr. Simmons and he have honed in on an energy signal similar to the convergence device lost in the battle against Ultron. The team believe that it is the Ultimates working to solve the problem of the dimensions collapsing. When they arrive at the Ultimates HQ - The Triskellion, they are confronted by the defense systems drones and a skeptical Black Panther who believes they are from another dimension. After overpowering Black Panther and assuring him of their identity they proceed on to meet Blue Marvel who is working on the device to seal the dimension rifts. Blue Marvel apologizes for the hostile security drones and Black Panther informs them that the means to shut them down lies in the lab at the heart of the Triskelion. Arriving at the lab they are attacked by America Chavez who again believes the heroes are from another dimension. They manage to convince her but soon come to realize that the Triskelion has gone in full lock down. Anti-Man and another dangerous inmate, detained by the Ultimates had escaped containment. They soon confront Anti-Man who is not to happy with Blue Marvel putting him in containment alongside the unknown inmate. The heroes fight Anti-Man and try to subdue him, but he escapes with a warning that the other inmates has plans for him and the heroes too. At this point the team are curious to know who the other inmate is, demanding answers they find it is Thanos, the Mad Titan. With the help of Jemma Simmons the team come up with a means to track Thanos's chronal signature. They trace him to a place in Earth's lower orbit and decide to contact Alpha Flight to intercept. However contact with Alpha Flight is compromised the Aerolith transportation won't work and Jocasta finds from their system records, that Ebony Maw had been brought to the station prior to this development. With the help of the teleporting abilities of America Chavez they are able to arrive at the Alpha Flight station. They are confronted by Captain Marvel under the mind control of Ebony Maw, and they manage to revert after defeating her only to find that the new Quasar(Avril Kincaid) is also under mind control and is taking apart the space station. They successfully manage to defeat and break Quasar out of the mind control too. With her cosmic awareness she is able to pinpoint the location of Ebony Maw. Iron Man, using Nano-tech sound dampeners, blocks out Ebony Maw's voice and nullifies his mind control allowing the team to defeat him. Alas, Thanos was using Ebony Maw as a distraction to lure the heroes away has returned to the Triskelion. Back there, they are greeted by Anti-Man again on arrival. Hearing Thanos's false promises to Anti-Man for a better future, Tony and Adam Brashear are able to piece together Thanos' true intentions. In order to please Death he intends to use the convergence device to open a rift to the future and destroy reality using the unstable Anti-Man. The heroes are able to defeat and reason with Anti-man bringing him back under control. They then proceed to stop Thanos from opening the rift. A battle ensues and as they are about to beat Thanos, he manages to slip through the rift into an unknown point in the future. The team is forced to follow to stop Thanos from destroying the future.

GameplayEdit

Marvel Future Fight has been described as a dungeon crawler.[citation needed] Players have the option to use either virtual joystick and button controls or tap-based controls. The player plays with a maximum team of 3 characters in a team on a level. The player controls one of the characters and may interchange with the other team members. A character swap will incur a cool down before the player can swap back to the previously used character. Each mission uses energy to play. Energy is gained by leveling up your SHIELD base with SHIELD XP, through in game rewards and achievements. There are many different playable characters. Also featured are non-playable characters Nick Fury, Jocasta, Jemma Simmons, Grandmaster, Taskmaster, Ymir, Fenris wolf, Surtur, Jormungand and M'Baku. Additionally, Melinda May appears in the capacity of a support character, as a summon for Phil Coulson as well as an ally shifter in Story Missions. The player's character has a default attack mode which does substantial damage involving repetitive melee/weapon attacks based on the character type chosen. The active character will lock onto a target and continue moving toward it to attack it unless input to behave otherwise. Apart from the default attack mode each character has additional special skills these may be directed attacks,AOE attacks or induce application of buffs or shields and are unique to each character. Each skill comes with a cool down. Skills are either active or passive. An active skill is initiated by the user, while passive skills will trigger on specific conditions met during game play. A character will start out with 2 skills initially and gain up to 6 skills as it is ranked up. Apart from the 6 skills each character has an additional Leadership skill unlocked through mastery of the character. This skill is active when the character is in the leadership position of the team. All team members will receive the benefits of the leadership skill for the entire duration of the level. Another skill type called tier-2 skill is unlocked when the character attains tier-2 status. Certain characters start out as automatic tier-2 characters The player can have a maximum of 5 teams set up. There are also team bonuses, for certain sets of character team combinations. Characters are unlocked and ranked up by obtaining Biometrics, which can be found in certain missions as well as the Game store. Characters can get better upgrade options at higher levels and can be leveled up through character XP. Players are able to customize heroes to their play style through upgrades, such as upgrading skills, gear, and equipping ISO-8. Upgrading skills increases their damage level, upgrading gear improves a specific trait of the hero, like HP or Attack Speed, and equipping ISO-8 sets provides varying buffs and traits. In the various stores, in addition to Biometrics, players can also buy chests, energy, clear tickets, ISO-8, Biometric packages, and other supplies. Certain stores require tokens while the Game store require either gems or real currency the uniform store and SHIELD lab mini-store require gems and gold.[citation needed] A recent update added tier 3 to the mix, as various characters, starting off with the likes of Captain America, Iron man and Spider-man, have been placed into play. As of June 2018, these characters can be upgraded to tier 3 through "breaking a limit" which allows the character to reach level 70 through continuous usages of materials gained through the world bosses. Furthermore, one has to upgrade the gears of the characters to 25 from its original 20, which used to be the maximum. The materials to upgrade the gears to 25 can be gained through playing another newly added feature called "Ultimate World Boss" which shows the previous world bosses (Thanos and the Black Order) wearing their costumes for the Avengers Infinity War. By gaining tier 3, characters gain a 7th active skill, which requires charging to 100% in order to use.

Development and ReleaseEdit

Marvel: Future Fight was released on April 30, 2015 for iOS and Android. It was developed by Netmarble Games, creators of titles such as Star Wars: Force Arena, Seven Knights, Raven (Evilbane in the U.S.) and Everybody's Marble. Marvel worked closely with Netmarble to establish the various character backgrounds, appearances and traits. The storyline for the game was penned by best-selling Marvel comics writer Peter David.[4]

MarketingEdit

The game has implemented various events in conjunction with Marvel Comics events and movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. New character and game content is gradually added to expand the game as the events roll out. A community forum for requests and suggestions is maintained for game subscribers to list their character preferences for the next update and new content.

Original CharactersEdit

For the 75th anniversary of Captain America, original character Sharon Rogers was created by the game's development team. Subsequently, a comic book series of the same name as the game has been released. It is a tie-in expanding on the characters' background. [5]

A second original character, Luna Snow, was created to celebrate the game's 150th playable character mark.

In-game purchasingEdit

The characters Nova (Sam Alexander), Blue Marvel, and Anti-Man could only be acquired through the purchase of Ultimate Hero Chests.[6] On December 12, 2017, the game's producers responded to vocal opposition to the arrangement, stating there will no longer be new characters available via the Ultimate Hero Chest and that the chest would be withdrawn from the game.[7]

ReceptionEdit

Netmarble's Marvel Future Fight surpassed 50 million downloads two years after it first launched. 20 million of these downloads came from Asia, 10 million from North America and Europe, 6 million from South America and 2.9 million in the Middle East.
