Marvel unveils new characters for Avengers Initiative, Marvel: Avengers Alliance

Both games will be the first titles to interconnect through the MarvelXP platform

Marvel announced several new characters for Avengers Initiative and Marvel: Avengers Alliance during their panel at New York Comic Con today.

Captain America will be joining the cast of Avengers Initiative, a mobile game available for the iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. Players of the Marvel: Avengers Alliance Facebook game will be able to explore a new Halloween-inspired Spec Ops mission, which features Ghost Rider. Marvel also announced six more heroes for Alliance: Cable, Vision, Black Knight, Captain Britain, Union Jack, and Psylocke. Characters are expected to drop in the coming months.

Both games will be the first titles to interconnect through the MarvelXP platform, which allows players to connect their play across several platforms and titles. An upcoming promotion will grant players the Alliance Iron Man V armor after defeating Hulkbuster in Initiative. Players interested in receiving direct notice once the promotion goes live will need to sign up for Marvel XP alerts.
