Avengers Endgame: Experience the Thrill of the Movie With Tie-In Game Events
Avengers: Endgame, the last movie in a series that spanned around 11 years and over 20 films, just made its debut on the big screen. If you have been following all the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and haven’t watched it already, then you’re in for a real treat. It features some of the most amazing action, special effects, and fight scenes in the entire MCU, so far. Furthermore, it also offers gut-wrenching drama, as well as resolutions to most—if not all—of its character arcs.
But this is BlueStacks; why are we talking about an Avengers film? Well, as you might have gleaned from the title of this article, there are many mobile games that, in commemoration of Endgame, have released their own special events . These games will have you performing special tasks and participating in events for a chance to obtain special characters and benefits.
If you’re a fan of the MCU, and enjoy gaming on BlueStacks, then you definitely ought to install Marvel: Contest of Champions , and Marvel Strike Force . Both of these games feature interesting events that are, either directly or indirectly, linked to the latest Avengers film. Let’s take a closer look at what these titles have to offer:
Combat Thanos’ Forces in Marvel: Contest of Champions
Our favorite 1v1 superhero fighting game has received an impressive new look reminiscent of the Infinity War. The most notable aspect of this change is its loading screen where we can see some of the toughest heroes in the Multiverse squaring up against the mighty titan Thanos. Among some of the heroes in this screen are Captain Marvel, Spider Gwen, Iron Man, War Machine, and Luke Cage, among others. The heroes are bravely fighting Thanos and preventing him from closing his fist to use the Infinity Stones.
If you’ve been following the movies to this point, you’ll notice that this concept is a pivotal point in Infinity War. During the battle on Titan, the Guardians of the Galaxy teamed up with Doctor Strange, Spider Man, and Iron Man to fight against Thanos. In order to prevent the bad guy from unleashing his strongest attacks, the heroes would try to stop him from closing his fist at all costs. This loading screen is a nice throwback to that scene.
Aside from the aesthetic elements, Contest of Champions features a special event called “Avengers Forever.” This event is tied to the Infinity War arc where Marvel’s strongest champions are locked in a race against Thanos for the collection of the Infinity Stones. To this end, you must enter a special map where you can take several routes to collect the stones. However, you will encounter some of Thanos’ strongest minions along the way, which will put up a strong fight to prevent you from reaching your goal.
The rewards from completing chapters in this event are significant and include Premium Crystal Shards and Last Stand Shards. These items can be combined to create Premium Crystals and Last Stand Crystals, respectively. Furthermore, the former has a chance of yielding 2-star, 3-star, and 4-star heroes, while the latter may contain useful items for upgrading your existing roster. All in all, it’s a great event for expanding your team of champions, as well as powering up your favorite characters so you can take on Thanos’ Forces.
Keep in mind that, while the reward remains the same, you may obtain more shards per event if you beat them on higher difficulties. However, completing these events is tough by itself, not to mention if you try it on higher difficulties. Only attempt it if you’re confident that you have what it takes!
Participate In Captain Marvel’s Event in Strike Force for a Chance to Unlock the Powerful Heroine
Girl power is a motif that is rising in popularity in many superhero movies. While female superheroes are definitely not a novel concept when it comes to the old-school movies and comic books, some argue that they are underrepresented in the current film industry. Movies like Wonder Woman, the Avengers series (Scarlet Witch and Black Widow), and Guardians of the Galaxy (Gamora and Nebula), among others, try to correct this by including tough female characters that kick serious butt. However, the most recent standalone superhero film brought to life what could be one of the strongest characters in the entire Avengers lineup, Captain Marvel.
Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson in the film) was a fighter pilot who, due to an explosion after being shot down by Kree fighters, is left with powerful energy-manipulation abilities. As Captain Marvel, Danvers can fly around at supersonic speeds, fire photonic energy from her fingertips, and is strong enough to go toe-to-toe with the mighty Thanos, if just for a few minutes at a time.
Considering the backstory of this character in the MCU, it’s no wonder that many players would want her for their teams. Luckily, you can unlock her in Marvel Strike Force as a playable character by participating in the Captain Marvel special event. Unlike the “Avengers Forever” event in Contest of Champions, you don’t actually have to battle or do anything different in Strike Force. In order to unlock Captain Marvel, you’ll simply have to complete milestones, after which you’ll receive different prizes. Eventually, you will obtain your brand new Captain Marvel champion to add to your team.
Avengers: Endgame is an awesome film, worthy of being the latest and final entry in the entire franchise. If you haven’t watched it already, then we highly recommend that you do so. Afterwards, you can download your favorite Marvel games on BlueStacks, and work towards unlocking your favorite characters from the Avengers films.
