'Marvel's Avengers' Update Addds Omega-Level Threat: Family Reunion, Mega Hives, Multiple Heroes Feature

Featuring a completely original story, Marvel's Avengers is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise.

Marvel's Avengers invites players to live their Super Hero dreams. Outstanding storytelling and an ever-expanding universe come together in the definitive Avengers gaming experience. Master extraordinary abilities, customize a growing roster of Heroes, assemble into teams of up to four players, and defend the Earth from escalating threats.

Marvel's Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Marvel's Avengers features a cinematic story, complete with the high-octane action that Crystal Dynamics is known for. Featuring regular content updates, the game will take players on an epic journey delivered over multiple years.

Marvel’s Avengers has launched a free update with the first of the game’s end-game challenges: Omega-Level Threat: Family Reunion.

Omega-Level Threat missions require full four-player strike teams at Power Level 145 (the game’s maximum Power Level of 150 is recommended) and though players can run them as many times as they’d like, Omega-Level Threats award the highest-end gear for success once per week.

Today’s free game update also adds the player-requested ability to run existing Mega Hive missions with other players and makes permanent the popular multiple-heroes feature that first debuted as a part of the Tachyon Anomaly event in April. Players can now form teams online with more than one of the same Super Hero for any multiplayer mission.

“End-game multiplayer content like Omega-Level Threat missions and multiplayer Mega Hives are at the top of our players’ wishlists, so we’re excited to deliver this update today,” said Josh Bapst, Project Director for Marvel’s Avengers. “In addition, making the multiple heroes feature permanent means that finding groups will be much faster. There’s never been a better time to play Marvel’s Avengers!”
