Team Liquid has announced a partnership with Marvel, the creators of the Avengers, to “bring together the worlds of heroes and professional gaming”.
They released a video showcasing their players, some of the greatest moments in Team Liquid’s stories history, eventually revealing three new jerseys based on Avengers.
The North-American based esports organisation currently fields teams in League of Legends, CS:GO, Super Smash Bros. and Rainbow Six Siege amongst others, they are the highest earning esports organisation of all time and they have no formed what may be one of the most prominent partnerships in modern day.
There are three variations of jersey coming from this collaboration. One is an Iron Man piece in red and orange, another is a blue, white and red jersey inspired by Captain America, as modelled above, and the third is a black, white and red jersey taking cues from the Quantum Realm armour. These can all be found on Team Liquid’s website.
These jerseys will all set you back $84 a piece, so the big collaboration definitely comes at a cost.
As well as the jerseys, there is also a more affordable T-shirt adorning the Team Liquid and Marvel logos which costs just $32.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Marvel crossover with gaming; in recent months, there has been Thanos-inspired gamemodes in Epic Games’ Fortnite Battle Royale as well as a fat Thor playing Fortnite in Avengers: Endgame, which looks set to become the highest-grossing film of all time.
Furthermore, Square Enix announced at E3 that they are indeed working on an Avengers game, though some fans have made it clear that they’re not too impressed with how it looks aesthetically.
