New Team-Up: Jessica Jones
Jessica Jones joins the Team-Up Roster of Marvel Heroes 2016!
While returning home with her family, their car crashed into a military convoy transporting radioactive chemicals. Both her parents and brother died during the incident, but Jessica survived the crash only to awaken from a coma several months later with newfound powers such as super strength, enhanced durability, and flight.
Jessica’s superheroine spotlight lasted only briefly after some heavy traumatic experiences caused her to leave the world of superheroes behind. She has since used her powers as a private investigator and journalist.
Minor Changes & Bug Fixes
Luke Cage’s Modern and Classic Costumes have received visual updates.
Wolverine’s Modern Costume and the Holo-Wolverine Team-Up have received visual updates.
Various improvements to the Times Square new player tutorial have been made to improve mission progression and clarity.
Seals of Conflict, the Civil War event currency, have been added to the Currency tab. All Seals of Conflict in players’ inventories should automatically be converted to the Currency tab upon logging in.
Fixed an issue where Emma's Psychic Domination produced controlled minions that would be more powerful than intended until changing zones.
Fixed an issue that caused Team-Up away powers to do more damage than listed on their tooltips when heroes have not reached the level cap.
Fixed an issue that caused projectiles to be invisible if spawned from very far offscreen.
Fixed an issue where the character would sometimes start walking to the entrance of the location after directional input is released on the gamepad.
Entering an incorrect password on the login screen will no longer cause you to have to re-enter your username as well.
We believe we have identified a disconnect issue which was affecting a small number of players regularly. This issue stemmed from Emma Frost's alternating Team Buff auras, which have been temporarily disabled until we can resolve this issue.
