This weekend is the start of the Marvel Heroes 2016 re-brand and major launch. Some of these features may be included in the launch and some may come at a later date but here is what i know:
Have you defeated Ultron? Did you see the Skrulls? They are coming! A new chapter is written with a new patrol zone for you to seek out too!
Have you earnt your hero some achievements? Maybe you have gotten passed wave 50 at Xavier’s School of the gifted X-defense challenge? Then you may find your place amongst some of the greatest players of all time on the all new Leaderboards.
Felicia Hardy, the Black cat; is unchained. She will be joining the hero roster once her training is complete in the test centre but can she be tamed and become a powerful level 60?
What does her alternative unreleased costume look like? I guess we will have wait and see!
A new team up hero Flash Thompson; Agent Venom has been seen training within the test centre but reports have been filed stating he may continue his training for a bit longer.
The Omega System is being evaluated and we may see either a cap increase on points, a rework or a new node unlocked however this information is unclear and if it is ready to launch.
If you are looking for a little bit of a different kind of control with your hero you may be able to use the new controller support which is finding its way to us soon.
Is your Captain America rocking it out in the default costume? Or maybe you have merged with the Phoenix as Jean Grey and your outfit doesn’t feel on point? Does it look worn out and tired? The news is the visual updates for heroes and costumes could be ready to launch to brighten up your wardrobe.

Deadpool. Just in time for him to shine in his upcoming film has finally had his powers reviewed and has undergone some extensive training in the test centre. We should be seeing him released if he passes his mental exams as an all new Deadpool!
Could there be more coming? Will the new crafting and costume storage be available? A new event? Something we have not heard of? I will be watching and playing.

If there is any hope in restoring normality to Midtown then we need heroes.
When you first arrive in Midtown there is chaos. Demons fighting mobsters, Sentinels holding hostages, mobster shoot-outs and bank robberies, madness! Order can be restored and rewards are offered but at what cost?
The Iron-Men, Ant-Men, Iron Fists and maybe the Thors. These are just some of the heroes that may be up to the challenge and many more. Every Monday this madness takes place in Midtown and will have our heroes face bosses from all corners of the city and beyond every 3 minutes.
With every boss engagement a Midtown box will drop giving you access to new gear and experience to help your powers grow, but to succeed faster and achieve the daily rewards you will want to assemble a team. Party up, help others on their quest and maybe once your hero is level 60 you may then take the leap through the Cosmic Trial Gate and face your most challenging survival test ever.
Good luck out there heroes. The madness continues.
Mortal Kombat X will not see the release of the highly anticipated Kombat Pack 2 or the new XL version on the PC.
As you can imagine there is much outrage within the PC community. Over 500K owners according to steam charts/sales are left in the dark feeling ripped off by developer NetherRealm and publisher Warner Brothers.
The PC version of Mortal Kombat X experienced a horrendous launch including poor performance and was even given a 15gb patch causing saved game wipes. It did however receive the first Kombat Pack for us PC players to enjoy and when the trailer was released for Kombat Pack 2 the PC players were non the wiser to not seeing it getting a release. There was a spectacle debate with the end of the trailer missing the Steam logo leaving a lot of speculation which is now all over social media.
We have now lost all support of the PC version moving forward. We will not get the pack or the new online beta code they have released improving the online performance.
It is seen that the publisher Warner Bros is to blame here. With the latest Batman game being pulled from the Steam store for weeks then put back on due to poor performance (still runs terrible) they have done nothing but continue their bad reputation and forfeit the support for Mortal Kombat X on PC.
This has now forced me to move to the Xbox one version. No further insight is known at this stage to the reason behind this move and i hope our voices will be heard.
