Set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe, players will forge unbreakable bonds with legendary Marvel Super Heroes and dangerous supernatural warriors in the fight against the world's greatest threat yet...the demonic forces of Lilith and the elder god Chthon.

"From the explosive action of the battlefield to the unfolding mysteries of the Abbey, we are so excited for players to explore the darker side of the Marvel Universe," said Bill Rosemann, VP & Creative Director, Marvel Games.
