New Augmented Reality Experience 'MARVEL Dimension of Heroes' Launches September 6
Players can play as six iconic Marvel Heroes and battle nefarious villains, across an original Marvel story, right in their living rooms with Lenovo Mirage™ AR!
MARVEL Dimension of Heroes, available only on Lenovo Mirage AR, makes its debut tomorrow, September 6!
The new smartphone-powered augmented reality experience, from Marvel and Lenovo™, who successfully launched Star Wars™: Jedi Challenges, will immerse fans in one of the world’s most beloved franchises. Players can harness the powers of six legendary Marvel Super Heroes in an original story which sees them take on infamous Super Villains standing right before them in their own living rooms.
In MARVEL Dimension of Heroes, players wield the legendary weapons and powers of Doctor Strange, Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Star-Lord against a host of augmented reality Super Villains. The epic experience is playable across the following three 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 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 six heroes, to fend off waves of powerful enemies. Players compete to achieve the highest score and rise up the 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.
(Note: Each player must be equipped with the Lenovo Mirage AR headset, two Universal Controllers, Tracking Beacon, and be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Each player must also download the latest version of the MARVEL Dimension of Heroes app on a compatible smartphone*. Players are recommended to stand side by side in the same direction, facing the Tracking Beacons about 4 feet away).
The free MARVEL Dimension of Heroes app will be available in the App Store and Google Play Store for download on compatible smartphone devices*.
After download, and with the power of the Lenovo Mirage AR headset and new dual Universal Controllers**, they can embark upon an adventure spanning three full-fledged modes and an incredible variety of augmented reality playstyles. With the new controllers, players can use both hands** to punch, slice and blast their way through exhilarating battles, while ducking and dodging enemy attacks, thanks to Lenovo Mirage AR’s freedom of movement.
The Lenovo Mirage AR device will be available at $249.99 in the US starting September 6, 2019 on Amazon.com and Lenovo.com. MARVEL Dimension of Heroes content is available to download via a compatible smartphone on the App Store and Google Play™ at no additional cost.
