At the end of last month, it was revealed that Marvel Future Revolution would land on mobile on August 25th. That day is today, and so Marvel's latest free-to-play RPG is finally available on both Android and iOS. Much like how Genshin Impact, NieR Re[in]carnation, and Sky: Children of the Light raised the bar for the quality of mobile games, Marvel Future Revolution is a highly polished release, at least as far as the presentation goes. At its core, Future Revolution is a brawler, though RPG mechanics are included, which is where all those pesky free-to-play mechanics rear their ugly heads.
Marvel recently revealed at PAX East 2020 that its next game is coming to mobile as an open-world RPG called Marvel Future Revolution. This title will serve as a follow-up to Netmarble's Marvel: Future Fight (not to be confused with the upcoming sequel for Contest of Champions), but instead of the linear design of the original title, Future Revolution will offer the same action combat wrapped up in an open-world design.
Disney had a ton of announcements to make during its annual Investor Day presentation, an event that's long become a forum for revealing new content. Most notably, the company shared that it beginning March 26, 2021, Disney+ will cost $7.99 a month or $79.99 a year in the US, which is a $1 price hike. But subscribers are in for a ton of new content from Disney, Lucasfilm, Marvel, Pixar, and National Geographic, so it's not merely a money grab.
Crystal Dynamics's superhero action-adventure title Marvel's Avengers is available on Stadia right now. Well, the Deluxe Edition is, at least — it'll run you $79.99. Your extra 20 bucks gets you access to the game several days early, plus a fancy black-and-gold costume for each playable hero. The standard edition will be available Friday, September 4.
You won't find any blood and gore in this life-sized Deadpool head, but it does pack more than 600 jokes, sound effects, and insults inspired by the devilishly handsome superhero. Hasbro Pulse just listed Deadpool's head for sale, in partnership with Marvel Legends. It'll cost you a pretty penny at $100 but will surely make for an eye-catching collector's item.
Disney+ is scheduled to be released in the US today at 3 am PST, and its apps are already live on almost any platform you could think of. For many, it's even possible to log in right now, so if you're up for a late-night/early-morning streaming session, you can try your luck by downloading or accessing the service on a device of your choice.
With the continued proliferation of cheap 4K TVs, more and more people are in the market for content that makes use of all those pixels. Google Play Movies & TV has offered such content for some time now, but movies owned by Disney have languished in 1080p. That's changing today, as Google has announced that many of Disney's properties are now available through Google Play in proper UHD.
Superhero flicks are all the rage these days — at least, the Marvel ones — and as part of Amazon's early Prime Day festivities, you can $2 rentals for most of the action-filled catalog. That includes Infinity War, and Spider-Man Homecoming, just in case you missed it. $2 also makes this a bit cheaper than the $3-4 cost for the same rentals over on Google Play Movies. Plus, with the recent changes to Amazon Prime Video, you can watch these on your Chromecast, too.
Kuato Studios have announced the release of Marvel Hero Tales, an educational storytelling app designed to promote literacy for children (ages 7-11). Each story is themed around famous Marvel characters (much like a comic book), and it will be the user's job to flesh out the narrative by choosing from a selection of words. Essentially, players can create their own personal superhero story while also improving their vocabulary development.
The highly anticipated grand finale of Marvel's Avengers series is just around the corner with its US release on April 26, and the hype train is fully deployed. Google has jumped right on it and published new Playmoji characters to hop around in your Pixel camera's viewfinder: War Machine, Thor, Black Widow, Rocket, and Captain Marvel.
