Marvel Knights Are Coming
Just after Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was released, at San Diego Comic Con, the first bits of DLC were announced. The first pack includes X-Men’s Cyclops and Colossus. These two heroes in their 90s costumes are free and will be available for download on August 30th. The second pack, which will be the first round of paid Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 DLC, will be titled Curse of the Vampire. The Curse of the Vampire pack had no official release date at the time, but now we know when it is coming.
The characters known as the Marvel Knights included in the Curse of the Vampire are comprised of Blade, Moon Knight, Punisher, and Morbius. When announced at San Diego Comic Con, not much was revealed other than the characters in this pack. Now, we are learning that new missions in a new mode will be part of the DLC. A Gauntlet Mode will be introduced that can be played in a co-op group. It is unclear if it can be done solo, but the missions included are described as “intense”.
