The latest update to free-to-play MMORPG Marvel Heroes Omega is out now, and with it comes the addition of one of the Marvel’s most iconic foes, Apocalypse.
In this fairly big update, the Apocalypse loot box is now available, giving players the ability to earn a large amount of new costumes for characters like Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler, Iceman, and more. Also included in the game is the new Omega difficulty and Omega items, which offer a much harder challenge with better rewards, and gear that is infused with bonuses for your character, respectively. To find out the full details of the update, make sure to check out Marvel Heroes Omega’s forum post on the patch.
More on the update, courtesy of Gazillion:
Enlisted by Clan Akkaba to resurrect Apocalypse, Mister Sinister has cloned four powerful X-Men to serve as the deadliest Four Horsemen the world has ever faced: Jean Grey (Death), Storm (Pestilence), Psylocke (War) and Magik (Famine). This “Apocalypse Awakens” content will challenge even the most seasoned Marvel Heroes Omega players with heroes at level 11 or higher. Alone or in teams of as many as five heroes, players will confront En Sabah Nur’s forces in his Egyptian resurrection chamber. The new content will also feature all-new original Horsemen designs that unlock for Jean Grey, Storm, Psylocke and Magik.
This new event not only allows players to fight against Horsemen versions of Jean Grey, Storm, Psylocke and Magik, it also allows players to unlock these versions as part of the new Apocalypse Loot Box or as a part of the Age of Apocalypse Event Omega Pack, both only available for a limited time. These four heroes will join Spider-Man as Omega Prestige characters, increasing their combat potential. “Apocalypse Awakens” introduces Omega items that can be earned through the new Omega difficulty setting, which can be achieved by passing the Omega Trial.
Marvel Heroes Omega is out now on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
