New MMO for Mobile: Marvel Future Revolutions

Sep 16, 2021 | News, Uncategorized



Are you a gamer? Do you love superhero games? What if I told you that they brought a game that has console scaling and ambition, for mobile?

Let me introduce to you Marvel Future Revolutions, a brand new MMO game for your phone. You read that right, an MMO for your phone.

The Story

Marvel Future Revolution takes place in the middle of a massive convergence of worlds. As soon as you open the app, after all of the downloading since this will take up a hefty chunk of any phone’s storage, you get thrown into the story playing as several iconic characters.

Make sure you have at least 30 minutes to get through this intro because this is no normal mobile game, they set out to make an Open World MMO Action RPG on mobile devices and it certainly feels like they’ve done it.

This extended intro will bring you into the story and introduce you to Omega Flight, the HQ for operations of multiversal heroes as the worlds are colliding and combining. It is up to you and the other squads of heroes to keep this convergence from destroying the worlds of all those being pulled into it.

The Gameplay

The launch trailer dropped on the 25th August and you get a good feel for the story as well as seeing some snippets of the action but to get a real feel for this, you need to try it on your device.

Depending on your device, your experience may vary wildly. Latest generation iPhones and Android phones shouldn’t have trouble storing this game with their larger storage specs and more capable RAM, but if you are trying this on a device that’s a little older, you might struggle to experience the game lag-free.

The same goes for screen size, those playing this on a tablet or the new Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G will have an advantage of a much larger screen which will feel much less cluttered. You have your mission taskbars, action buttons, minimap and more all on-screen and if your screen doesn’t have the real estate, it could be difficult to get into it.

Aside from this, the mechanics and layouts feel well thought out and the actions you can perform are visually pleasing. In-game cutscenes and voice acting are great quality and it does feel like you are playing a console game on your phone.

Pros and Cons

As mentioned above, the screen is busy and as with any MMO, this game has its share of repetitive tasks that take time to complete but a fantastic quality of life feature is the autoplay button.

Most mobile games with an autoplay feature require the player to complete the quest or event before being able to automatically run it for them, Future Revolutions gives it to you out the gate. While it does remove the player aspect and mean that you are simply spectating, it helps a lot with repetitive missions or levelling your non-main characters which is super nice.

Another great feature is the ability to customise your look outside of the equipment that you chop and change between. Equip your best gear and then style your character as you like.

Downsides for this game, however, it is a phone game… I know that that is the point but I don’t know how many people this will draw in and then lose over its lifespan. Some mobile games have been around for years, but they are all simplistic and optimised for basic touch controls, this is a full-scale console game packed into a mobile sized package and I don’t know how much people want that right now.

Let me put it this way if you are a console gamer and you have the time to sit down and spend a couple of hours on the latest or even last-gen consoles, the quality and smoothness of your gaming experience will far exceed the capabilities of this game. On the other hand, if you are a mobile casual gamer and you like sinking a couple of minutes at a time into a game on your phone, I don’t know that you have the time or desire to get into a game this complex and intensive. You can’t simply pick it up and put it down anytime if you are in a multiplayer mission and a whole team is relying on you to play then and there.

That isn’t to say this isn’t a good game with a huge amount of ambition, but I don’t know if the current market is ready for it. Hopefully, if it is, it takes this launch period to continuously improve and position itself as the number one game of its kind as others start to pop up and fill the app store.

If you would like to give this game a try for yourself, the official Twitter account for the game has started a starters guide you can check out.
