In anticipation of the upcoming release of the Ant-Man film starring Paul Rudd, Kabam has updated Marvel Contest of Champions to include a swarm of new features related to the insectoid hero.
The update will roll out new characters Ant-Man, Yellowjacket, Elektra, War Machine, and more over the coming weeks, as well as special events and story quests tied in to the Ant-Man universe specifically. In case that’s not enough, there will also be new Summoner Masteries (first introduced in the Ultron update), and a new Alliance game mode to enhance how you interact with your Alliance.
This mode, called Alliance Quests, will allow players to traverse a brand-new map alongside their Alliance in real time. The map will be packed with difficult enemy champions and bosses, requiring Alliance members to work together simultaneously to bring down the big bads. The first of these, Ultron Prime, will be easier to tackle if you have Ant-Man on your roster, but new quests will continue to be introduced regularly after the update.
The Ant-Man related Event Quests will roll out every four to five days, following a discovery Ant-Man makes of ant-sized Adaptoids collecting ISO-8 and hoarding it in a strange place. Progressing through these quests may lead players to Yellowjacket and the truth of the tiny Adaptoids. Both Yellowjacket and Ant-Man will be available via the PvP Arena and Alliance Arena, the latter of which will require Pym Canisters collected through the Ant-Man Quests to be used as an entry fee.
Fans of Ant-Man and Marvel should have plenty to keep them busy this summer, both in the theater and while waiting in line with your phone. Stay tuned to Gamezebo for further news and update announcements for Marvel Contest of Champions.
