It’s a good time to be the Guardians of the Galaxy. Not only are they starring in a series written by one of Marvel’s most high profile writers, Brian Michael Bendis, and just months away from hitting movie theaters everywhere in their eponymous film, they’re also getting introduced into every form of media possible, including video games.
As revealed as SXSW, that means the hit social and mobile title Marvel: Avengers Alliance. Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora and Groot are all joining the Facebook version of the game soon, with art very much based on their comic book appearances.
Avengers Alliance is also getting a healthy dose of Captain America and friends, with visuals taken from next month’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier film. They’re coming into the game in conjunction with a brand new Spec Op called “Ghosts of the Past.”
Perhaps most importantly, Marvel teased revelations about the Pulse, the force responsible for the proliferation of the mysterious Isotope-8 that ties most of the company’s social and mobile games together.
