It may not have arrived to the acclaim that many would have liked, but for those who have a love of the Avengers, the launch of Marvel’s Avengers in 2020 would surely have appealed. Now though Square Enix have launched a free update for the game, one that brings forth the very first of the game’s end-game challenges: Omega-Level Threat: Family Reunion.
Rolling out today for Marvel’s Avengers on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC, this update adds in multiplayer Mega Hives and ensures that multiple heroes are found as a permanent feature.
But it’s the first of the game’s end-game challenges, Omega-Level Threat: Family Reunion, which will probably be of most interest. Omega-Level Threat missions require full four-player strike teams at Power Level 145 (the game’s maximum Power Level of 150 is recommended) and though players can run them as many times as they’d like, Omega-Level Threats award the highest-end gear for success once per week.
You can see how it all plays out in the Omega-Level Threat: Family Reunion trailer below.
Today also sees the addition of the player-requested ability to run existing Mega Hive missions with other players and makes permanent the popular multiple-heroes feature that first debuted as a part of the Tachyon Anomaly event in April. Players can now form teams online with more than one of the same Super Hero for any multiplayer mission.
“End-game multiplayer content like Omega-Level Threat missions and multiplayer Mega Hives are at the top of our players’ wishlists, so we’re excited to deliver this update today,” said Josh Bapst, Project Director for Marvel’s Avengers. “In addition, making the multiple heroes feature permanent means that finding groups will be much faster. There’s never been a better time to play Marvel’s Avengers!”
To enjoy the new end-game content, you’ll just need a copy of Marvel’s Avengers to hand. You’ll find that present on Xbox (the Xbox Store link is here), PlayStation and PC, giving rich experience that combines the single-player focused Reassemble story campaign with the ongoing Avengers Initiative’s War Zone missions.
