Gameloft's next movie tie-in gets the full comic book treatment
There's a new Captain America movie headed our way in April, and Gameloft today drops word that it will be producing the official mobile game. The Winter Soldier is set to hit Android and iOS in late march prior to the release of the movie. Promising a mix of action and tactical options and some pretty hot looking comic book styled graphics, The Winter Soldier looks to be a complete Captain America experience.
While it'll be an official game of the cinematic release, it will be an original story. Since it's coming before the movie, it's good to know that we're not going to be dodging spoilers. It looks pretty exciting, and we're looking forward to getting our hands on it down the line. For now, you'll find the official trailer up top, and the full press release after the break.
Gameloft to Develop Official Mobile Game for Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Paris, February 4th, 2014 – Gameloft, a leading global publisher of digital and social games, has teamed up with Marvel to announce the development of its upcoming smartphone and tablet title, Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game, based on the much-awaited Super Hero film coming this spring.
