MARVEL Contest of Champions

Kabam's fighting game for mobile devices, MARVEL Contest of Champions, has been updated with Civil War content as a tie-in to the upcoming movie Captain America: Civil War. The game now features special Civil War events where players can join Team Cap or Team Iron Man, and compete in new solo events. Players can also earn faction-specific Shards, daily prizes, Milestone Rewards and compete for Rank Rewards.

Contest of Champions has been updated with Leaderboard support where players can filter rankings by overall, country, friends, and Alliance members. Other new features include the ability to view the defender kills for each Champion, view your opponent’s offensive Champion information during Attack Phase, plus various Champion updates and improvements.

MARVEL Contest of Champions version 8.0.0 is available for free on the Apple App Store. The game loosely follows the events of the 1982 comic book series, Contest of Champions. Players can create their own roster of Marvel superheros and villains to compete in 1-on-1 arena type battles. The game includes tons of Marvel characters to collect and train, iconic locations ripped right from your favorite comic books and a Marvel inspired storyline with various quests and Alliance events.

Captain America: Civil War has already raked in $200 million in Europe and 37 other foreign markets. The film is the first release of Phase Three in Marvel's unified cinematic universe. It takes place after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron and pits Team Cap against Team Ironman as the world's mightiest heroes clash after the government decides it should monitor superhero activity. The film stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America, Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man and it includes first time Marvel cinematic appearances from Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland).
