Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra has no specified date for release as yet but is confirmed for 2025. With the release of the reveal trailer on 20 March at Epic Games’ State of Unreal keynote, Marvel fans got their first glimpse of the latest game offering for the franchise and many were delighted with what they saw.


Given how 2020’s Marvel’s Avengers under-performed, it is no doubt a welcome sight for those fans who are desperate for a game that they can actually enjoy. Could they finally have a game that matches up to the huge expectations that fans of the franchise hold? So far, so good.

With a recent posting on Social Media site X, one fan voiced their expectations about Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra from what they have seen of the trailers so far. Whilst there will always be a differing opinion in most things, it appears that the majority were in agreement.


In response to a comment on X, the fan had the following response to a comment in that it appears that the Devs are aiming for a simpler, more contextual combat system. They stated that ‘It seems to be a more narrative focused game with cinematic visuals’, and followed up with, ‘I want the gameplay to go above and beyond for these characters‘.

Other comments on this post drew various comparisons with the previous Marvel game and one player even went as far as to state that the Captain America character gameplay from Marvel’s Avengers could easily be used in a standalone title, with another commenting that the combat footage looks like the 2020 game. Make of that what you will.

Whilst there is still to be a confirmed date of release, the majority of fans have been enjoying what they have seen from the game from Skydance. Taking source from the Captain America/Black Panther: Flags of our Fathers limited-release comic series is seen by many fans as a smart move for the success of the game.


Fans have also praised the graphics of the game, stating that they look better than the fight scene between Black Panther and Killmonger from the Black Panther movie. The scene was heavily criticized for its VFX and it’s perhaps no surprise that fans would use this as a base of comparison.

It’s clear that Marvel fans have enjoyed what they’ve seen so far of the upcoming game from Skydance and it’s hoped that it will fare better than Marvel’s Avengers which received a somewhat mixed response. Given how passionate the fanbase is, they will not hold back if this does meet up to expectations.
