It’s Captain America’s Chris Evans Versus Orcs In This Week’s Xbox Live Session


Microsoft has been going all out with its Xbox Live Sessions, inviting a number of superstars to play a number of hit games that utilize the Xbox One X console. But this time around, it’s called on a real hero – Captain America!

Chris Evans, who portrays the heroic superstar in a number of Marvel films (including current home video release Spider-Man Homecoming), will take part in the next Xbox Live Sessions event, which will take place tomorrow, November 1st, at 4 PM PDT. During that time, Evans will be tackling the action-packed Middle Earth: Shadow of War, measuring his heroic skills against an army of Orcs.

The session will take place on the official Xbox Mixer channel, and along with Evans, you can expect “a few surprise celebrity friends” to join up. While it could be possible that we could see some other faces from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, nothing is set in stone just yet.

On the official Xbox Wire post, general manager of Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg noted, “I’ve talked to Chris and he is super pumped for him and his friends to play Shadow of War, the epic follow-up to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, on the Xbox One X. They’ll look to forge a new Ring of Power to amass an army and fight against the full power of the Dark Lord, Sauron and his Ringwraiths. I can’t wait to see them go behind enemy lines to try and conquer fortresses and dominate Mordor from within.

“I’m really looking forward to this Xbox Live Sessions because I think our fans are going to love interacting with Chris and his surprise guests during a night of gaming. Also, be sure to tune-in to the livestream for the chance to submit questions and win special prizes. This episode of Xbox Live Sessions will be hosted by Microsoft Studios Community Manager, Rukari Austin.”

So there you go. Fans of the MCU and other pieces of Evans’ work (like Snowpiercer!) will want to tune in and see what he has to say about Shadow of War when he tackles the Orc armies tomorrow. Hey, Cap, maybe bring your shield…
