MARVEL Strike Force Introduces Shadowland, White Tiger in Latest Update
The latest update to hit the MARVEL Strike Force realm has brought forth a new team called Shadowland into existence. The update log explained in detail about Shadowland, existing characters that will form part of it, and the introduction of White Tiger, a new hero that will become a part of the same faction.
The 5.1.0 Release Notes specified the upcoming release of the Shadowland team while also giving us a bit of a teaser of the characters set to be a part of it. While existing characters like Daredevil, Night Nurse and Elektra have been reworked and moved into the Shadowland team, White Tiger and Moon Knight will be the two new hero releases that will be welcomed into the same lineup.
The former has been highlighted in the latest explanatory patch notes, with the story detailing how former FBI Agent Angela Del Toro is convinced by her family friend and ally Daredevil to take over the reins of being the White Tiger after the death of her uncle, the predecessor to amulets that channel the power of the Tiger gods.
While Whtie Tiger possesses intriguing abilities, her ultimate, Thrill of the Fight, makes her the heaviest damage dealer on Shadowland and a force to be reckoned with. Elektra, Daredevil and Night Nurse have all had their abilities reworked to favour Shadowland characters whenever they are allies, to an extent.
MARVEL Strike Force has also released a few limited-time events dedicated to Black History Month. The upcoming Blitz events will give players the chance to earn Killmonger, Falcon and Bishop shards as they persevere through the said events, with Falcon getting a separate event named ‘Eyes in the Skies’.
Happy News is right around the corner for players at or above the level 25 mark, with the legendary Nick Fury event named ‘Chasing Fury’ soon to be made an indefinite event for such players, who can utilize a Kree Minions team for the event and earn Nick Fury shards.
Season 3 of Mojo’s Mayhem will hit the mobile screens, with Beast, the brains-and-brawns of the X-Men the feature. Players who have a team of Avengers and/or Ravagers with a minimum of 5 stars will have a shot at landing Star-Lord for their roster as part of the returning Legendary event ‘Space Ace’.
MARVEL Strike Force will also have a special Lunar Festival event, this time celebrating the Year of the Ox, wherein players earn Lunar Credits to daily milestones. The Lunar Credits can be used to open Lunar Orbs (Orange, Purple and Blue) to gain gear, Mega Orbs and Gold among several other items.
An addendum to the Lunar Festival is the Cheerful Celebration Alliance Milestone. The addendum iterates that players who hit milestones of opening a certain number of Lunar Orbs, will be rewarded with Gear Tier 15 mini-Uniques, Elite 5 Credits, Advanced and Superior Basic Catalyst Parts, a 5-Red Star Character Draft featuring only named characters and miscellaneous gear.
Shadowland does look like a good lineup that can pack a punch and users will be excited by the prospect of a potential return of Night Nurse into the meta, with the character succumbing into irrelevance since 2018.
