Pick up a handful of new Studios-inspired characters in Marvel Puzzle Quest all month long, including 5-Star Loki (God of Mischief) who enters the fray this Thursday, August 9.
Born a prince of Jotunheim and adopted by Odin, Loki can lay claim to both Frost Giant and Asgardian royalty. While this puts great power at his disposal, Loki's true strength comes from his talent for illusion and trickery. For all his skill at fooling others, the God of Mischief can’t convince himself that he belongs anywhere. As an outsider in both lands, Loki constant seeks ways to prove himself worthy, no matter how much his treachery hurts his family and innocent bystanders.
Loki deceives his opponents waiting for the opportune time to attack. The 5-Star Loki possesses the ability to revive himself after being downed. Pair Loki with characters that can destroy tiles (to destroy his Shadowplay tiles).
Loki conjures replicas of himself to distract and confuse his foes with Shadowplay, a low-cost purple power, which creates four 4-turn Shadowplay tiles. After firing this power, it becomes Dagger Surprise.
With Dagger Surprise, a low-cost purple power, Loki springs from behind an illusion, pouncing on an unsuspecting enemy. Removes up to 3 friendly Shadowplay tiles, dealing 8,891 damage for each. When there are no friendly Shadowplay tiles on the board, this power becomes Shadowplay.
Loki pends the power of Asgard to his will using Destroy Everything, a high-cost green power, sending the Destroyer after his enemies. This move creates a Fortified 3-turn Green Repeater tile that destroys a random row and deals 6,882 damage to the enemy team.
Lastly, Loki has the ability to Feign Death, a passive black power, and lies in wait for the opportune moment to retaliate. When Loki becomes Downed, creates a Trap tile that, when matched, revives Loki with 62% health and generates 3 Green AP.
Recruit Loki with Right to Rule, Special Legendary Store, starting this Thursday, August 13, or during the Special Limited Vault, Loki Laufeyson. Don’t miss the God of Mischief’s debut in the Come and Get Me release!
Everyone’s favorite spider-themed mobile gunner from Gameloft has some new content set to hit the web very soon! You can expect to find “Avengers: Infinity War” variants rolling out, allowing you to swing into action as Iron Spider (Battle Mode), Iron Spider (Unmasked), and Iron Spider (Infinite Rarity)!
Thanos also returns as a boss character for a limited-time.
Who dares to call upon What Dwells Beneath? Lastly, the action-RPG mobile game from FoxtNext introduces Scarlet Witch joining Earth’s mightiest squad to challenge Ultimus. Scarlet Witch can manipulate chaos magic to prolong the negative effects on her enemies while redistributing health between her allies.
In celebration of the home release of “Avengers: Infinity War,” don’t miss another opportunity to unlock the Mad Titan Thanos with a new season of Thanos Raids now live.
