The Brotherhood of Mutants led by the magnetic Magneto are making their way to Marvel Strike Force.
The official announcement for the Brotherhood update reads:
Bestial Super Villain Sabretooth, the mega mutant Juggernaut, and the powerful shape-shifting Mystique are now available to join your super squad, with Pyro and Magneto hot on their trail.
With razor-sharp fangs, claws, and accelerated healing abilities, the long-established rival of Wolverine (and now potentially his ally) Sabretooth can stalk his prey at super speeds, leaving enemies unable to escape his devastating pounce.
Empowered with magical energies, the immortal avatar Juggernaut possesses superhuman strength capable of shattering mountains, buildings, and anything else that dares to fall within his sight. Once in motion, he’s physically unstoppable!
The next mutant in line is packing some serious heat. Entering MARVEL Strike Force with psionic abilities to manipulate fire towards his enemies, Pyro will definitely be a hot addition to your team.
To culminate this month of devious mutant fun, MARVEL Strike Force players can prep their best X-Men and Brotherhood teammates to participate in a Magneto Legendary event where they can recruit Magneto by the end of November.
This is great news for X-fans as the mutant heroes and villains have often been ignored in Marvel games as of late. Sure, we all blame the film rights fiasco between Disney and 20th Century Fox for it, there has never been much in the way of official confirmation.
That said, now that the X-rights are closer to Disney’s hands than ever, it looks like we’re finally going to be seeing more Mutants in Marvel games. Which can only be a good thing.
