Marvel Games Celebrates Captain America’s 75th Anniverary

Beginning Thursday, June 30, Marvel Games will be releasing brand new, never-before-seen versions of Captain America across its portfolio of mobile and PC game titles.  The event is part of Marvel’s 75th Anniversary celebration of the First Avenger. The event joins Marvel Publishing’s launch of a new CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS comic book series, ABC’s “Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years” anniversary special, and new consumer product lines featuring the new design of Captain America. 

“The unique stories and styles of each Marvel game provide an opportunity for every title to introduce a boldly imaginative version of the legendary Super Soldier,” said Bill Rosemann, Marvel Games Creative Director. “Because our partners enjoy the freedom to craft different storylines for players, fans will see how each game’s new version of Captain America is sharply distinct from one another but still completely authentic to the ‘Living Legend’ we all know and love.”

Players will need to battle through limited-time events in each game to earn the new versions of Captain America. Details behind the alternate versions of Captain America include:

Marvel Contest of Champions (Mobile Game):  Civil Warrior – On an alternate Earth ravaged by the Civil War between Captain America’s and Iron Man’s forces, Steve survived, but Tony didn’t. Riddled with guilt for the battle’s destruction and the death of his former ally at his own hands, he assumed the mantle of the Civil Warrior. Adding Tony’s ARC technology to his Captain America gear, he vowed to use his friend’s legacy to stop this senseless conflict from ever happening again.   

Marvel Future Fight (Mobile Game): Sharon Rogers – In an alternate universe where Captain America was never frozen in ice at the end of World War II, Steve Rogers and Allied resistance fighter Agent Peggy Carter helped win the great conflict and celebrated V-Day with a private marriage ceremony. Their daughter, Sharon Rogers, has taken on her father’s mantle. Highly trained in martial arts and espionage, and equipped with a blaster lance and energy absorbing shield, Sharon battles evil and tyrants around the world as Captain America.

Marvel Puzzle Quest (Mobile Game): Peggy Carter – In a world where Steve Rogers was assassinated before he could become Captain America, Peggy Carter joined the Super Soldier Program in his place. A former field agent, Peggy combined the powers of the Super Soldier serum with her top-notch combat training, defending the ideals of freedom and equality as that world’s Captain America.

Marvel Avengers Alliance 2 (Mobile Game): Captain America 1901 – Jeremiah Rogers, known as Captain America 1901, is America’s first defender of freedom from an alternate timeline who rode with Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War.  Armed with his iconic, extending shield, and Iso-8 powered armor he has become a symbol of American freedom, capable of safeguarding those who fight by his side.

Marvel: Avengers Alliance (Facebook): American Knight – The Second Dark Age arose from the fires of the Atomic Age and the aftermath of the Second World War. What once was the danger of “mutual assured destruction” became the unraveling of the Second Industrial Revolution. Into this dark and desolate time came a ray of hope with American Knight. Armed with only his shield and sword, and the full plate mail which he adorned, American Knight set out to encourage and rally the people to work together and push back against the darkness to bring about a new age of hope and hearth fire for all people.

Marvel Heroes 2016 (PC Game): Captain America (Modern Military) – Hailing from a reality in which he was born 75 years later, brave volunteer Steve Rogers became the first and only human to receive a dose of the Super-Soldier Serum just a few months ago. Inspired by the search-and-rescue specialists of today’s United States military, Captain America leaps into battle, determined to face today’s threats to liberty and freedom.

Marvel Avengers Academy (Mobile Game): World War II Captain America – Captain America dons his classic uniform to take Avengers Academy’s training and adventures to the next level.
