Enter contests if you're a VIP, make custom wallpapers if you're not.

Activision has updated the official Marvel: Ultimate Alliance website with some goodies for everyone, and bonus stuff for people who pre-order the game.

The Team Builder on the site's front page allows for anyone to select a custom team of four Marvel stars and make a personalized desktop wallpaper. There is only a short list of characters to choose from right now, but more will be added as more characters are revealed leading up to the game's release.

People that want to go one step farther can pre-order the game at any EB Games or GameStop store and gain access to the VIP area of the site. Extras for VIPs include a look behind-the-scenes, trailers for different characters, a character-unlocking cheat code for the full game, and a screensaver that updates as new characters are added to the site. Activision is also planning contests in which winners can win items like an Xbox 360 or posters signed by Stan Lee. If you don't want to pre-order the game, but want access to the goods, you can just ask someone who is a VIP for an invite to the secret parts of the website.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is expected to be available for Wii before the end of the year.

Ultimate Alliance Gets Ultimate Composers

A trio of them have set the score for the upcoming Marvel mash-up.


Santa Monica, CA – August 29, 2006 – Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today that award-winning composers Chance Thomas (Peter Jackson’s King Kong, Lord of the Rings series), Cris Velasco (God of War) and Mark Griskey (Best of LucasArts Original Soundtrack) have scored the upcoming, critically-acclaimed Marvel™: Ultimate Alliance video game. The trio has produced over 50 minutes of original music for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, including arrangements for multiple game levels, the in-game cinematics and the Super Hero™ and boss battle themes.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is Raven Software’s highly anticipated action/RPG that allows players to create their Marvel dream team from the largest roster of Super Heroes ever in an epic quest that will determine the fate of Earth and the Marvel Universe. With over 140 popular Marvel characters and a playable cast of more than 20 Super Heroes, including Spider-Man, Wolverine, Blade and Captain America, gamers will embark on a dangerous journey across exotic terrain and well-known comic book locations like Atlantis, the Shield Heli-Carrier and the Skrull home world in an attempt to defy Dr. Doom and the world’s most notorious Super Villains.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance will be the first Super Hero game available this fall for all next-gen gaming systems. Additionally, the game will be available for current-gen consoles, handheld and PC platforms, and carries a “T" (Teen – Mild Language, Violence) rating by the ESRB.
