KESTREL JOINS MARVEL STRIKE FORCE
Kestrel arrives just in time to celebrate MARVEL Strike Force’s 3rd Anniversary and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!
Kestrel, also known as Major Sybil Tan, is a Malaysian physicist, engineer, pilot, and astronaut living at the bleeding edge of scientific discovery. She spent her early career in U.S. Space Command at NASA, where she earned the callsign of “Kestrel” and was recruited by Nick Fury for her scientific brilliance and drive to explore the boundaries of reality.
As the lead architect of S.T.R.I.K.E 's interdimensional technology, Kestrel’s natural optimism and curiosity made her insist upon being the first to test the prototype portal generator she created. The results were catastrophic: the unstable technology failed, leaving Kestrel marooned and drifting through the outer reaches of reality. Kestrel’s experiences travelling across different dimensions in her exo-suit ultimately resulted in a deep understanding of how realities diverge and the ability to manipulate and create new timelines. Kestrel encountered countless worlds felled by the villain Ultimus before finally making her way to her home timeline and joining Strike Force to help prepare for Ultimus’ return to this dimension.
PLAY AS KESTREL IN HER ALL-NEW CAMPAIGN EVENT
Kestrel’s modified exo-suit, portal cannon, and reality-bending abilities make her an invaluable addition to any squad. Kestrel made her debut in-game beginning April 30, and players will have the opportunity to play as Kestrel firsthand during a limited time event beginning May 8 - May 23 UTC. By completing challenges and earning Kestrel Shards, players can permanently add this powerful character to their roster of heroes and villains teaming up to save the world.
NEW FEATURE: COSTUMES!
Variant costumes have been added to the world of MARVEL Strike Force! Don alternate outfits inspired by your favorite MARVEL comics, movies, TV shows, and more! Lookout for the first costumes available for both Captain Marvel and Elektra this month.
