Facebook has become a destination for casual gaming. From Farmville to Words with Friends, Facebook is now a breeding ground for developers to try out their new games. So when Disney Interactive and Marvel Entertainment created Avengers Alliance it seemed like a good fit for players to get the chance to become an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. But what about playing Avengers Alliance on your android, iPhone or iPad?
A year -- and 40 million game installations -- later and the Facebook turn-based RPG game has become one of the most popular games on the social media site, and is finally ready to branch out ... to your mobile device.
That's right! Android, iPhone, iPad users, get ready to become unproductive when Marvel's Avengers Alliance goes mobile. In an interview with USAtoday.com, producers of the game have announced the Facebook game will be available on Android devices, iPhones and iPads.
"We think there's a lot of people who don't play games on Facebook that really want to play this game," says Justin Woods, producer on Avengers Alliance, said to USAtoday.com.
Avengers Alliance will come to the iOS June 13. A date for android phones was not given, but the game developers promised it will come to the android soon.
Along with the news of Facebook's Avengers Alliance coming to mobile phones was the announcement of the game's "Season 2." Producers promised players that their agent and Avengers team will go overseas to England where they will fight new enemies and recruit new heroes.
"Season 2" will begin June 18.
To accompany the new season will be the release of two new characters that will be ready to be recruited: MoonKnight and Squirrel Girl.
"Hardcore gamers don't really play games on Facebook," says Woods. "And it's just because they didn't have the right game to play. Now you see more and more games targeted at hardcore gamers on the Facebook platform."
Well, now fans and gamers alike can stop doing "actual" work and form their own Avengers team on their mobile devices. Say goodbye to productivity.
