Amidst the chaos, Captain Marvel locates America Chavez, who explains that the portals are the result of her unexpected arrival in The Battlerealm. Attempting to contain the carnage of these new Champions, the trio encounters none other than Hercules, who was sucked in by one of America’s stray star portals.

Will our heroes survive the onslaught of new opponents? What did America Chavez see beyond the walls of The Battlerealm? What darkness awaits the future of The Battlerealm?

CHARACTER BIOS

The Summoner’s Choice Champion has arrived! Born in Ancient Greece, Hercules is a demigod born to Zeus – the king of Olympian Gods – and Alcmena, a woman of Thebes. As an infant Hercules was cared for by his stepmother Hera, Queen of the Olympian Gods, and bestowed with her blessings. These blessings further elevated his demigod physiology to near Godlike heights, providing him with immense strength, stamina, immortality, and near invulnerability.

America Chavez was born in an alternate dimension outside of time and space, the Utopian Parallel. Being a Dimension in close proximity to the Demiurge, America Chavez absorbed powerful mystical energies which granted her the ability to willfully travel through alternate Dimensions. This new Mystic Brawler is ready to make a name for herself in the Contest of Champions!

Both characters will arrive in the game in July, and fans can now check out the all-new motion comic – Starfall

Battle in Style with Transmog in MARVEL Realm of Champions

Kabam has launched its latest 4.0 update for MARVEL Realm of Champions, including a brand-new Transmog feature that allows players to change the appearances of their Champions’ armor and weaponry.

Fans have anticipated this feature, and Kabam is excited to officially implement it in game. Transmog brings new creative potential that players can achieve while still retaining the full power of their battle-hardened equipment, so there is no sacrificing power for style. These cosmetic appearances can be unlocked by players to apply to their gear using a new currency called Essence to apply their new look. The more rare the appearance, the more Essence it takes to apply.

Alongside Transmog, other updates to MARVEL Realm of Champions include:

  • New Story – An UNWORTHY THOR goes on a quest to earn the right to his own Mjolnir hammer, accompanied by the most unlikely of the companions: a WINTER SOLDIER who walked away from the world after a personal tragedy. In the end, they might find that being “Worthy” is not what they expected when they started their journey.
  • New Thor Gear Sets – Featuring the “Odinforce” suit of armor and “Unworthy” outfit.
  • New Hulk Weapon – Introducing the “Wing Shield” (Tank) that changes your Hulk Champion’s abilities once selected.
  • New Asgardia Arena Conquest Environment – The first Asgardian Republic environment to be introduced to the game!

See the blog post HERE for more details, plus more intel on Hulk’s “Wing Shield” HERE and the new Thor Gear Sets HERE.

Conquer the Battlerealm With Overseer on Marvel Contest of Champions

Break out of the multiverse and become champion with ORIGINAL-character Overseer as he enters The Contest in Kabam’s MARVEL Contest of Champions. Here is a quick bio of the character’s in-game story:

A younger version of Maestro from an alternate reality that is equal in every way, except he still maintains his sanity. The Overseer has just started his conquering career and while he isn’t villainous, he’s not quite noble either. He uses Captain America’s shield for defense, and the Silver Surfer board as a giant cleaver, but his most powerful weapon is a copy of the Infinity Gauntlet that holds the Cosmic Cube, which he uses to travel across the Battlerealm looking for conquest.

Take a look at Overseer’s Champion Spotlight, which details his abilities, history, strengths and recommended masteries. Other MARVEL Contest of Champions updates, including bug fixes, balance updates, Grandmaster’s Gauntlet, Queen Haasen’s Langurian Castle Rifts challenges and more can be found HERE.

Give into Purgatory’s Bloodthirst on Marvel Contest of Champions
