Version 3.1 is here! The latest update to MARVEL Strike Force introduces two new characters, two new Traits, an update to the Hulk and the launch of the Shuri Legendary Event.
Making his landing in MARVEL Strike Force is Falcon. You can earn shards towards unlocking Falcon from his Orb and the Event Campaign, Front Lines, which begins on April 30th. Join forces with Falcon as he leads an inter-dimensional S.T.R.I.K.E. team to take down Ultimus’s Helicarriers. This Event Campaign will require a team of TECH characters.
Falcon's kit is unique when compared to other Blasters. His Passive ability allows him to be more resilient than other Blasters and his ability to gain Bonus Attacks on characters with positive effects presents interesting matchup opportunities for him in War and even in PVP. As you'll see, Falcon has a knack for blowing stuff up. We’re excited to see how the community builds around him in the coming weeks.
Also introduced with Falcon's arrival are two new traits: Power Armor and Wave 1 - Avengers. The Power Armor trait is being applied to characters who share Power Armor characteristics -- so characters with powerful armor! Alongside Falcon, Iron Man and War Machine will also receive this trait.
Meanwhile, the Wave 1- Avengers trait is being added to Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Hulk! Hulk's update also includes a bonus on his special ability, Rage, to characters with the Wave I - Avengers trait.
Hulk has received an update to both his abilities and his character model. This has been a highly requested character update from the community, and we’re happy to say it’s finally here. You can view the changes to Hulk in the release notes here.
Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
This isn’t the second character we’re teasing for version 3.1, but a character scheduled to arrive later this year. Here's a small exclusive for all the readers of this blog: He's a cool guy who doesn't look at explosions and a character designed to work alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. teams in Alliance War. Making the leap to MARVEL Strike Force later this year is Agent Coulson!
Shuri Legendary Event
We’ve been talking about this event for a few weeks now and it’s finally here! The first go around of the Shuri Legendary Event began yesterday and marks the arrival of the final piece of the Wakandan Team. The Wakanda team becomes a top tier Raid team with Shuri at the helm. Shuri’s ability to give Wakandan teammates not just energy, but Charges as well, provides many opportunities for characters that benefit from Charges, like Black Panther’s Ultimate ability and Okoye’s Passive Assist.
The Week Ahead
Shapeshifting her way into Blitz next week is the master infiltrator: Mystique! Face off against other players in a quest to earn milestone rewards and a chance to win Mystique shards!
Until next time…
Good luck, Commanders!
