Nexon and Marvel have announced their mobile strategy card game, Marvel Battle Lines, featuring hundreds of Marvel heroes and villains. Players build their ultimate deck to take on a single player campaign and story written by Alex Irvine. Marvel Battle Heroes also features a “real-time turn-based” competitive mode letting players battle head to head testing their mettle, tactics, and strategy. The game will be available on iOS and Android through Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store.
According to Nexon General Manager Lawrence Koh, the game will capitalize on Marvel’s broad and well-cemented fanbase to bring a fast-paced accessible game to players. Koh says, “Marvel’s incredible universe has reached hundreds of millions of fans around the world and it’s an honor to be collaborating with their team on a truly unique game that draws on the nostalgia of collecting trading cards and taps into the fun of battling with friends. Marvel Battle Lines is incredibly engaging, fast and accessible, and will give players a chance to hone their skills and collect their favorite Super Heroes and Super Villains based on how they like to play games – whether that’s through the original single-player storyline and activities or competing in the PvP mode.”
“We are working very closely with Nexon to deliver a card battle game that is authentic to our characters and true to the platform,” said Jay Ong, Senior Vice President of Games, Marvel Entertainment. “MARVEL Battle Lines features an original story and all-new gameplay that Marvel fans and mobile players alike will enjoy for hours on end.”
According to Nexon, Marvel Battle Lines’ intuitive gameplay will allow gamers to battle in single player or PvP mode right from the beginning. Players collect cards from battles in single player or PvP mode and build diverse decks of Marvel Super Heroes and Villains reflecting their play style and tactics. Players will need to master strategies to take on greater campaign challenges or compete with even better players in PvP. Nexon promises in addition to the main campaign story, an array of single-player activities will revisit beloved Marvel stories and events with challenges and rewards.
Marvel Battle Lines will be available in 2018 as a “free to download” game on iOS and Android through Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store. If you’re interested in more Marvel mobile, check out our article on Marvel Strike Force Mobile.
