MARVEL Strike Force Introduces X-Men Phoenix, Colossus, and Psylocke To Universe
These X-Men will arrive sometime in the not-so-distant future.
As announced earlier today on a brand new episode of This Week in Marvel, mobile RPG game "MARVEL Strike Force" will be introducing three X-Men characters into their Strike Force Universe — Phoenix, Colossus, and Psylocke!
Listen to This Week in Marvel's Ryan and Lorraine break down the announcement below!
Arriving in game in waves, starting on May 23, the X-Men are the most powerful team the game has ever seen. They'll be joining already available characters Wolverine and Storm on the fight against Magneto and the Mutant Brotherhood in the Arena game mode.
Colossus and Psylocke will roll out in the upcoming in-game update with a Psylocke Event Campaign and Colossus Blitz. Phoenix will be available through a Legendary Event. Players should jump in now so you can earn Psylocke and Colossus character shards before their events end.
Colossus, an unkillable tank, is a powerful Protector that can absorb heavy damage by stacking Positive Effects and mitigate incoming damage with Deflect. His abilities make him difficult to get through, and one of the reasons the X-Men will be the new apex Arena team. Reign down cosmic fire and rise from the ashes with Phoenix, and turn Negative Effects against your enemies with Psylocke.
As for the Psylocke Event Campaign, after the X-Men are captured by Ultimus, Psylocke must lead a stealth team of S.T.R.I.K.E. martial artists on a rescue mission to Limbo.
Build a team of your favorite X-Men and unleash the power of the Phoenix force! Pairing these new characters with Wolverine and Storm allows for new team synergies making your collections that much more powerful. Your X-Men team will be no match as more mutants are added to the game.
BONUS: Commanders, this is your chance to execute the Fastball Special — Wolverine and Colossus' new team-up attack!
Listen to This Week in Marvel above to hear about the addition of Cyclops, who will be added a later date, and what insane scenario will play out with having both Scott Summers and Jean Grey on the same team.
