WizKids is set to release a new Marvel game system for HeroClix this Fall. Marvel Strike Teams places one player as the Mastermind as the other players take on the roles of the heroes aiming to stop the villains. The game will feature an assortment of your favorite superheroes and baddies from the House of Ideas. Marvel Strike Teams is for 2 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, and each mission takes about 40 minutes to play. The game will carry an MSRP of $59.99 when it arrives this October.
WizKids is thrilled to announce the brand-new strategy game that puts players in the roles of some of their favorite Marvel Universe heroes and villains: Marvel Strike Teams! Two to five players face off in a classic battle of good versus evil. Everyone gets a character with a HeroClix Combat Dial to track their level and build points. One player is the villainous Mastermind, and the rest are the heroes trying to save the world. Marvel Strike Teams is a campaign game designed by Andrew Parks.
The villain player controls the evil Mastermind and is able to guide the direction of each encounter. Each of the hero players controls a single hero for the mission, and they all must work together by combining their vast array of powers and abilities to complete various objectives, such as infiltrating an enemy warehouse or saving hostages.
Each hero is unique with individual play styles, giving players multiple options to play the way that best suits them—or try something all new for a different experience! The environment also lends to the gameplay, putting obstacles in the way of players and granting them objects they can use as weapons. A wooden crate may block Captain America’s path, but he can pick it up and hurl it at enemy Hydra Soldiers! Players will quickly pick the roles that best suit their team and lead the heroes to victory (they hope!).
Besides standalone missions, there is also a campaign-based game in which the players can improve their heroes over the course of several missions. With randomly selected scenarios, multiple map tiles, and thousands of possible encounters, each mission will feel like a fresh experience!
