Good news, super fans of Marvel. Your dream of becoming kicking infamous super villains from the Marvel universe as a bona fide superhero is here. Following the launch of the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges back in 2017, Lenovo and Marvel now brings you the new Marvel Dimension of Heroes on Lenovo Mirage AR.
Marvel Dimension of Heroes is a new smartphone-powered augmented reality video game, playable on the new Lenovo Mirage AR device, that lets you assume the role as of the six legendary Marvel Super Heroes to stop nefarious villains from destroying the world (or your living room?).
The six superheroes are Doctor Strange, Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Star-Lord. If you ask me, Star-Lord is kind of an odd choice. I mean, he was made famous for GOTG, but he’s not quite a mainstream superhero, was he? Anyways, here are the three game modes:
• Play through an original Marvel story in Story Mode, in which the Dread Dormammu, Lord of the Dark Dimension, launches a surprise attack on Earth with his alliance of Super Villains, including Loki, Ronan the Accuser, Ultron Prime and the Winter Soldier. With the Earth in ruins, Doctor Strange manages to turn back time to secure a second chance to save the planet. Players assume the role of all of the game’s six playable Super Heroes to battle the interdimensional forces that threaten the world.
• Survival Mode lets players use their heroic powers, playing as any of the game’s six heroes, to fend off waves of powerful enemies. Players compete to achieve the highest score and rise up the game’s global online leaderboards.
• Finally, players can also partner up with a friend in Co-Op Mode, where they each play as a Marvel hero battling the forces of evil side-by-side in the same room, while competing against each other for high scores. (Each player must be equipped with the Lenovo Mirage AR headset, two Universal Controllers,3 a Tracking Beacon, and be connected to the same Wi-Fi network5. Each player must also download the latest version of the MARVEL Dimension of Heroes app on a compatible smartphone1,2. Players are recommended to stand side by side in the same direction, facing the Tracking Beacons about 4 feet away).
The hardware, which comprises of the new Lenovo Mirage AR, Tracking Beacon, and the Universal Controller, also works with the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, allowing you to wield the lightsaber, command troops in battle, and even better, play Holochess. The Lenovo Mirage AR device is available now for $249.99.
Buyers who have brought the hardware can down and install Marvel Dimension of Heroes, as well as Star Wars: Jedi Challenges free of charge on their compatible smartphone. Existing gamers of the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges will receive a free update which will allow it to be played on the new Lenovo Mirage AR device.
