Marvel released a trailer for their new mobile video game, Marvel Strike Force.
“Strike Force marks the triumphant return of the long-lost Kree Eternal, Ultimus,” Jason Bender, Creative Director at FoxNext Games, tells Marvel.com. “Ultimus is a powerful warlord, obsessed with the survival of the interstellar Kree Empire. We’ve seen other Kree warriors, such as the zealot Ronan the Accuser and Korath the Pursuer, in comics and the first Guardians of the Galaxy film, but none as powerful as Ultimus. As an Eternal, he shares the same source of power as Thanos, who we’ll see a lot in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. In Strike Force, the Kree Empire has realized that Earth will always be a threat to their existence, and have devised a plan to deal with Earth once and for all.
“Now a general of the Kree Empire, Ultimus has set out to conquer Earth, but he doesn’t stop there,” Bender continues. “He has the technology to mind control the heroes of Earth so he uses them to build a more powerful army and sets about conquering the Earths of every dimension he can reach. It doesn’t take long before he has an army of Hulks, Thors, and Groots, and finally ends up at our Earth. That’s where S.T.R.I.K.E. comes in.”
