When a brand or franchise crosses over into different forms of media, it’s not hard to expect that every once in a while an event on one side of media will affect something on the other side. And with video games, they’ll take inspiration from the other media and use it to create new content. Take for example Marvel Heroes Omega, which is being influenced by the recent release of Defenders on Netflix.
The culmination of several series featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist was released last week and fans are very happy with the result. So with Marvel’s MMORPG, it was only a matter of time before they released a Defenders event, and that’s today! Now, what can you expect from this event?
Well, the titular villains for the miniseries event is The Hand, a group of ninjas with a long history and a desire for immortality, and that’s who you’ll face in Marvel Heroes Omega. But that’s just the start. The game is also bringing in Elektra as the 41st hero of the game. This legendary assassin has done a lot in her time at Marvel, including being the girlfriend to Daredevil, coming back to life after dying because of Bullseye, being a part of numerous superhero teams, and more.
And a special Loot Box is being given for the game so that you can get special outfits for Daredevil, Elektra, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist! Sorry Jessica, none for you.
Finally, the first Omega Prestige has been granted, and the first hero it goes to is Spider-Man! This Omega Prestige will allow the character to go beyond the current confines of the game if you play him enough.
