Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign Announced for PS4 & PS3, Includes Online Multiplayer

At one point thought to be releasing last week, Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign is actually coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 later this year at an unspecified date.

Already available on iOS, Android, and Steam as a free-to-play title, the console version will be priced at $14.99, likely pointing to the removal of in-game purchases/micro-transactions.

Here’s the description for Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign:

In Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign, players create a team from a roster of Marvel Super Heroes and embark upon a global journey that features match-3 and story-driven gameplay. Join Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Hawkeye, and many more, battling against a host of Super Villains including Venom, Doctor Doom, Magneto, and The Hood in a struggle to obtain and control the ever-mysterious Iso-8.

Players will assemble a squad of three characters with upgradable abilities, choosing from a roster of heroes and villains alike, all to combat a common enemy. With this team-based gameplay comes a new level of strategy and customization, allowing audiences to call upon specific heroes that are best suited for the job and to create an ultimate Marvel dream team as they travel across famous locations and visit familiar faces from the Marvel Universe.

Developed by WayForward, Dark Reign for consoles will mark the first time ever in Marvel Puzzle Quest that you’ll be able to use both online and local multiplayer.
