Skydance New Media has released a new trailer for story-driven action adventure title Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra, along with lots more info, too.

Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra is coming from writer and director Amy Hennig, and Skydance says the new trailer “gives fans a sneak peek into an original story that takes players on a WWII-era adventure with an ensemble of four heroes playable at different points in the game”.

In the chaos of war, worlds collide. Captain America and Azzuri, the Black Panther of the 1940s, must overcome their differences and form an uneasy alliance to confront their common enemy. Fighting alongside Gabriel Jones of the Howling Commandos, and Nanali, a Wakandan spy embedded in Occupied Paris, they must join forces to stop a sinister plot that threatens to turn the havoc of WWII into the ultimate rise of Hydra.

In Rise of Hydra, players can look forward to exhilarating gameplay inspired by Marvel’s landmark comics, films, and television series. Releasing in 2025, Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra captures all the action, excitement, and globe-trotting adventure that has delighted fans for decades.

Megalyn Echikunwoke plays Nanali, a Wakandan spy embedded in Occupied Paris, and Marque Richardson plays Gabriel Jones, a U.S. soldier and member of the Howling Commandos. Lyne Renée plays Julie, a key ally in the French Resistance, and Joel Johnstone rounds out our cast as Howard Stark”.
