Put your roster on high alert this week, because we've got an epic Legendary Event, a sinister Event Campaign, and a brawling Gamma Raid heading your way that'll put your teams to the test. Let's kick things off by checking in with the new City Villains...
Sinister S.T.R.I.K.E. Event Campaign
The Sinister Six are emerging from the shadows for their Event Campaign: Sinister S.T.R.I.K.E. Join Rhino and Sinister Six members on their mission to help Norman Osborn recapture a corrupted Kingpin, who's turning Manhattan into his personal playground. To join this mission, you'll need a top team of City Villains, so put the finishing touches on your roster's ruffians. Each node in this Event Campaign rewards Civil Disorder Orb Fragments that feature Rhino along with City Villain characters. Don't miss out on your chance to recruit Rhino!
New Gamma Raid featuring Brawlers
Calling all fisticuff fans: a new Gamma Raid is almost here! Coordinate with your Alliance to battle your way through the newest Gamma Raid that features the Brawler trait. This Raid will be different from past Gamma Raids as it rewards a new orb -- the Gamma Raid Orb -- whose contents will rotate out based on the characters featured in the Raid. For this Raid, the Gamma Raid Orb will reward select Brawler character shards. A new featured character set in our Strike Raid Gamma means that we will be updating the boss and sub-boss nodes to reflect the changes. The previously Juggernaut themed nodes have been updated to feature new Brawler enemies.
Ultimus VII Update
It's now a sprint to the finish line with several Alliances in the mix to be the first to complete Ultimus VII three times. After the winner is announced, the community will enjoy festivities to celebrate, including a limited edition Orb featuring characters chosen by the winning Alliance, along with a celebratory login calendar.
It's too close to crown a winner yet, but we’ll have an update for you as soon as we’re ready to announce a winner! Good luck to all the Alliances competing!
NOW LIVE: The Phoenix Legendary Event
The time has come to recruit the X-Men Legendary Controller: Phoenix! Her Legendary Event requires a strong team of Villain Mystic Controllers: Hand Assassin, Loki, Mordo, Nobu, and Ronan.
If your team isn't at the 6-star minimum yet to attempt to unlock Phoenix, you’ll get another chance in the near future as the Phoenix Legendary Event will return in September.
Code Red Blitz Milestones & The Heat Wave Calendar
Heat up your roster with the special Code Red Blitz Milestones and Heat Wave login calendar. During this limited-time summer event, earn points toward this new milestone by opening Heat Wave Orbs and winning Blitz battles to earn big rewards.
That's all for this week! Until next time…
Good luck, Commanders!
