Marvel Heroes 2016 2.10 Patch Notes

Posts: 4,494 Cosmic


Marvel Heroes’ 4th anniversary is here, and the party is only just getting started! Join us as we celebrate four years of Marvel Heroes!


A canine visitor from Knowhere has traveled to Earth, but was quickly kidnapped! Help him escape captivity by looking for a remote notification upon logging in - complete the new mission and you will be rewarded with a brand new companion!


Joining the Team-Up Roster for Marvel Heroes 2016 is… the Helicarrier itself!

The S.H.I.E.L.D. Air Support Team-Up is a unique style of Team-Up that cannot be summoned directly like most Team-Ups. Instead, the Hellicarrier will be called in to support you in combat with various air strikes and strafing runs - activating the summon ability will call in a huge missile strike in your area.

This new Team-Up can be purchased from the Anniversary Event Vendor in Avenger’s Tower for 100 Cake Slices. Be sure to grab yours during the Anniversary event this month!


Throughout the month of June, we’ll be kicking off various events and bonuses for everyone to enjoy!
