New features, heroes, and uniforms accompany the arrival of Battleworld in the hit mobile game!
Secret Wars brings its multiple-universe style of action to “Marvel Future Fight”! Battleworld has landed, and it’s not only bringing new heroes and a dozen new uniforms, but also a new brand of PvP and special Event Battles.
We grabbed a few minutes with the ever-busy HS Park, Game Design Team Manager, to dive into the fresh twists and turns.
Marvel.com: Secret Wars is bringing a lot with it to “Marvel Future Fight.” What are the biggest additions we’re going to see?
HS Park: Among many new updates, the biggest addition to the game is Battleworld, which will bring a more competitive PvP aspect into the game. We tried very hard to stylize Battleworld to really feel true to Secret Wars, and the Killiseum was a perfect setting for the new mode
Marvel.com: Cover collection sounds right up my alley. How will it work? What’s going to be the best way to build our collections?
HS Park: Each Comic Book Cover is divided into 9 different pieces and collecting all those pieces will let you complete the Comic Book Cover. If you happen to acquire duplicate cover pieces that are already in your collection, you can also combine those pieces to get a new one. Kind of like recycling!
Cover Pieces can be acquired primarily from Dimension Rifts. We also improved Dimension Rifts to now provide more valuable item drops. Even current Rifts will offer critical items so players can revisit those again to reliably get great items.
Marvel.com: Event Battles add even more variety to the types of situations that players can encounter in the game. Will we be able to access these fights similar to the way Villain Siege works, or are these a whole new ball game?
HS Park: Battleworld works differently than the Villain Siege. Battleworld offers a variety of event arenas that open for a certain period of time. Also, there are some entry requirements for specific Heroes and Villain types, based on each event. You pick a team of 5 based on the requirements and the battle will be a 2vs2 relay battle.
Marvel.com: Not to leave fan favorite characters by the wayside, three new heroes are being added this time around. Who are we seeing and how can we get our hands on them?
HS Park: This time, we are adding She-Hulk, Singularity, and Sister Grimm—aka Nico Minoru—from A-FORCE into the game. These characters are available to everyone via Battleworld Rewards. If you manage to get into top tier, you will be able to recruit new heroes much faster. So get ready for the fight!
Marvel.com: There are tons and tons of alternate universe costumes and characters to choose from when it comes to Secret Wars. How did you decide on the 12 new uniforms from the material? Which have you enjoyed playing with the most yourself so far?
HS Park: We think the best part about Secret Wars is seeing your favorite heroes and villains in a completely different light. The new look heroes and villains are super awesome and fans are going to love seeing them in the game. I personally love Groot who is now part of [THORS], and Bullseye’s “Western Style” from 1872.
Marvel.com: Secret Wars content will be in the Event Battles and these new uniforms, but will we see the storyline popping up in other areas of the game, as well?
HS Park: Well, someone has to manage the Killiseum, so Taskmaster will be making an appearance as the sadistic master of ceremonies. However, since Secret Wars is a tale still being told, we wanted to focus this update more on the new features, characters, and a huge variety of cool new costumes, while we all, anxiously, let the story play out in the comics!
Marvel.com: We’ll be back to talk more in-depth about the PvP additions in Battleworld next week, but I’m sure there’s even more on the horizon for Secret Wars and beyond; can you give us a little teaser of what’s coming next?
HS Park: Ouch, that’s tough to answer without giving too much away. One thing I can say for sure is that the next update will be a Marvel Universe fan favorite. We always try to take a wide look at all areas of the Marvel Universe when picking our new content. Now, that I think about it, we’ve already updated “Marvel Future Fight” with Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Comics storylines. Hmm…what should we do next?
