WizKids Announces Marvel Strike Teams Heroclix Game

WizKids has announced Marvel Strike Teams, a new HeroClix game. Instead of having just your own team you build and fight against your opponent, this is a one-vs-many game with one player in charge of the forces of evil and their nefarious plans, while the other players are in charge of the titular Strike Teams.




From the announcement:

Designed by Andrew Parks, 2 to 5 players will face off in a classic battle of good versus evil, where one player is the leader of the villain side while the rest are heroes, battling the villain and trying to save the world.

The Villain Player controls the evil Mastermind, able to manipulate the direction of each encounter. The Hero Players each control a single hero for the mission and must work together by combining their vast array of powers and abilities to complete various objectives, such as infiltrating an enemy warehouse and defeating enemy soldiers.

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 affects 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!

Besides standalone missions, there is also a campaign-based game where the players can improve their heroes over the course of several missions. With randomly selected scenarios, multiple Map cards, and THOUSANDS of possible encounters, each mission will feel like a fresh experience!
