Gazillion announced today that a brand new Defenders Event launches today for Marvel Heroes Omega on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The new event finds players facing off against members of The Hand for a variety of limited-time rewards. Today’s update also introduces Elektra as a new playable hero. The infamous assassin’s entry marks the 41st hero to join the title’s growing roster of playable characters from the Marvel Universe on consoles. To celebrate, Gazillion will also introduce the new Hell’s Kitchen Loot Box, featuring new console costumes for Elektra, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Punisher.
In addition, players can also look forward to the imminent debut of the Omega Prestige system for Marvel Heroes Omega on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Starting soon, players may unlock “Omega Prestige” status for select heroes. Omega Prestige marks the culmination of a hero’s journey and extends the leveling process considerably.
