Update: If the movie left you hankering for more Captain America, you can now check out the game. Captain America: The Winter Soldier has just launched on iOS. You can grab it here.
Original Story: Brace yourselves – winter is coming! Oh wait, wrong franchise. But just as exciting, Captain America: The Winter Solider is coming to cinemas this March. In a move that will surprise no one, a movie tie-in game is set to launch alongside Captain America’s latest frosty adventures. Although movie tie-in games don’t always have a great track record, we really like how The Winter Solider is shaping up.
The story is co-written by Marvel and inspired by events from the movie. Fans will no doubt be pleased that plenty of famous Marvel characters will make an appearance. As you can see from the trailer, the Winter Soldier really looks the part, taking the form of a 3D action game, presented with comic book style, cel-shaded graphics.
Further piquing our interest is that Gameloft is taking the development reigns. Gameloft has made a name for itself taking on other movie tie-in games like Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3 and The Amazing Spiderman. Gameloft has also produced other high quality titles including Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour and N.O.V.A. 3, all of which feature in Issue 1's Top 10 First-Person Shooters (out next week).
While you’re impatiently waiting for March, why not check out some other solid movie tie-in games.
