Marvel Announces New Characters for Avengers Alliance at NYCC 2012

Examiner.com: Marvel: Avengers Alliance (Social Game) - In the spirit of Halloween, Marvel also revealed a brand new Spec Ops mission for the hit Facebook game, Marvel: Avengers Alliance, featuring the flame-skulled Ghost Rider. The Spirit of Vengeance is the ultimate reward for players who complete Spec Op 4 by defeating Baron Mordo, Satana and Mephisto. Six brand new Super Heroes were also announced that will be coming out over the coming months, including Cable, Vision, Black Knight, Captain Britain, Union Jack and Psylocke.

That's great news! This game is amazing, and Psylocke definitely should have been added to its list of heroes a long time ago (if it weren't for AvX, Magik would never be added to the game before Betsy).

I hope it doesn't take too long until our favorite psychic ninja enters the game... I really can't wait to add her to my team!

Pure speculation but considering they're adding Psylocke, Captain Britain, Black Knight AND Union Jack, I'm wondering if there is going to be some Brit set spec ops or something of that nature. That would be really fun!

FSaker said...

Yes, it would! But if this is the case, I hope Psylocke won't be the "prize character"; in all the three Spec Ops so far, I never managed to fulfill all tasks to get the prize character...

Unfortunately, if this is the case, I don't see how she couldn't be the prize character, considering that the prize character is usually someone that the players really want in their teams, and none of the other three Brits (Captain Britain, Union Jack and Black Knight) are nearly as popular as she is.

Then again, Mockingbird was the prize character in the first Spec Ops and she's not exactly big among the Avengers...

This is the best news! I love that game. It is so addictive.

And FSaker, if you are having problems completing the Special Ops I have a tip. There is an amazing blog that has a breakdown of the tasks so you know what is coming and it helps you plan out how you can complete the Ops in the time frame given. http://avengersallianceguide.blogspot.com/ I've been able to get through them all (except Mockingbird) once I discovered the guide list on this site.

I wish they would have used her current X-Force costume and covered her up :-/ lol She just seems a little "out of place" next to three guys covered from head to toe

sparkysnaffles said...

Me too Adrian, but it isn't as recognisable. I'm hoping they do a costume option for her, either her 80s armour or her new outfit. Either of those would make me happy.

Even if she is a reward character, I'd be happy and just play that game hard to get her!

Who knows, maybe there'd be an Uncanny X-Force team bonus abilities and uniforms in the future too? (just like what they have for the Avengers, Phoenix Five, and Future Foundation)

So that's gonna be UXF versions of Psylocke, Wolverine, Deadpool, and Nightcrawler.. and Cable?

Ok, I just think Nightcrawler in this game needs some lovin and a new costume! Hehe. (Even if 616 and AOA are totally different versions of him)

FSaker said...

@Nic - Thanks for the tip! Too bad that I neither have the four characters (Black Panther, Rogue, Gambit and Nightcrawler) needed for the Deploy Missions to reach the two Epic Bosses, nor have enough gold to skip these tasks...

@Adrian - As sparkysnaffles said, Betsy's "swimsuit" outfit is her most iconic one (even if it isn't her best one ever), so there was no doubt that this would be the look that Playdom would choose for her. Still, she may get an alternate costume some time after she is launched in the game, so there's still hope.

FSaker said...

Seeing this image again, I noticed that there may be a second reason for Psylocke to be wearing her swimsuit (besides it being her most iconic look and all): this uniform is basically blue and red, matching the colors in Captain Britain's and Union Jack's uniforms (which are the colors in the UK flag - sure, Betsy's misses the white color, but the other two colors are there...).

Would be nice if they give her some options. I'd turn her into a Blaster archtype pretty quick. Classic pink, or armour Option would be nice, or even a Captain Britan suit. I want her new or current UXF suit also.

Tazirai said...

Hopefully Psylocke will have multiple costumes also.

Pink suit as Tactitian

Purple armour as Blaster.
