Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game Lands In App Store [Video]

Ahead of its April 4 U.S. theatrical release, Gameloft’s movie tie-in Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game has arrived in the App Store.

An original adventure co-scripted by Marvel, the game lets you play as Captain America as you lead a S.H.I.E.L.D. Strike Team to take down enemies. The game promises intense combat with plenty of tactical elements, RPG features which let you learn new fighting techniques and upgrade weapons, and an asynchronous multiplayer mode.

Cult of Mac noted that Gameloft’s last Marvel tie-in Thor: The Dark World was good fun when we reviewed it, so hopefully the developers have built on that foundation here.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game is available from the App Store for $2.99. It’s compatible with all iOS devices running iOS 7.0 or above — although as a word of warning it does require a constant Internet connection to play.
