Test Center has been updated with a new build that contains the three new costumes that will be coming with the next patch:
For testing purposes, you will find all three of these costumes available for 1G in the Specials tab of the Test Center in-game store.
Feel free to check all three of these out in Test Center and let us know what you think!
There are a couple known issues with these costumes that should be addressed with the following Test Center update:
The 2D art for each costume has not been implemented as of the build currently on Test Center, so these costumes will show the "Coming Soon" silhouettes in those places (such as the costume icon or in-game store image).
Luke Cage Marvel's Luke Cage Hood Up Costume currently appears as if it were a Variant costume in the inventory, even though this is not actually a Variant costume.
When this goes live will the costumes be in the store or locked in cards/boxes?
All three of these costumes will be available directly in the in-game store.
I don't know as this can get through the pipeline in time for this patch, but I understand what is happening now with this issue and have sent it forward for a fix.
So no new costumes or XP boosts for Defenders/Heroes for Hire?
I do know there are some new costumes coming that haven't found their way to Test Center just yet. Will likely see those with the next Test Center update.
The Hand has returned to New York! Talk to Misty Knight in the Avengers Tower, then head to Midtown or Hightown Patrol to suppress The Hand incursion.
Once you’ve spoken to Misty Knight, you can join the fight in pushing the Hand out of New York, earning Orders of the Hand from any Hand enemies, as well as from new missions detailed below!
A Defender's Task at Hand (Account Mission)
Daily Missions (Shared Mission)
These new Artifacts can be purchased with Orders from the Hand at the Event Terminal in Avenger's Tower:
Kirigi's Tetsubishi - An Artifact known to enhance your skills among other things.
Elektra’s Bandana - A Powerful item that summons Elektra by your side.
Bullseye’s Deck of Cards - Practicing with these Bladed Cards is known to improve your skills from a distance.
Elektra, Kirigi, and Bullseye are in possession of Cosmically Enhanced items as well.
Rumor is… Elektra’s also in possession of another special piece of gear.
Kingpin’s Ring of Power - A Unique Ring with enough punch to really give you an edge in fisticuffs.
Kingpin’s Ring of Stature - A Unique Ring capable of influencing those around you.
We are offering some new costumes for a handful of heroes that patrol the mean streets of Hell’s Kitchen:
These three new costumes are available directly in the in-game store!
Elektra, Kirigi, Bullseyes and Kingpin have upped the ante and now drop new items from their weapon war.
Luke's Lucky Chain got a touch of Cosmic.
Luke's Lucky Chain and Luke's Cosmically Enhanced Lucky Chain have received quality of life improvements. This adjustment is retroactive.
Defeating Elektra now counts toward any mission or achievement objective that requires defeating The Hand.
Fixed an issue where activating a travel power before moving the analog stick would not allow you to steer your hero's movement correctly when using a gamepad.
Fixed an issue where defeating Kingpin in story missions would not register for the Check Mate achievement.
