With Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 just around the corner, Kabam Entertainment’s mobile fighter Marvel Contest Of Champions is celebrating with a slew of new content, which includes the debut of Adam Warlock as a playable character and new Guardians-themed quests.
A new cinematic trailer heralds the arrival of two characters–the aforementioned Adam Warlock, who will feature in the new Guardians film, as well as Moondragon, a powerful telepath who was raised and trained by the Eternals on Saturn’s moon Titan. Both characters will join pool of characters obtainable using Crystals, an in-game currency. Moondragon will join first on May 11, with Adam Warlock following her on May 25..
Both characters will also feature in a new Event Quest called Seed Of Doubt, which will center around the newcomers and how they arrived in Contest Of Champions’ universe. Players can also attempt a new 7-Star Quest called Shooting Star, which if completed could earn a 7-Star version of one of the game’s many playable heroes.
Finally, a free 3-Star version of one of the Guardians will be given away for a limited time. Heroes included in the giveaway are Drax, Gamora, Mantis, Nebula, Rocket Raccoon, and Star-Lord. The giveaway begins May 5, which is the same day Guardians Vol. 3 premieres in theaters.
Marvel Contest Of Champions is a free-to-play brawler featuring an all-star cast of Marvel characters, and it is available to download now for free on both iOS and Android devices. The full Patch 39.0 notes, which go into effect May 1, are below.
Marvel Contest Of Champions Patch 39.0 notes
New Quest: Escape From Titan
Titan is under attack! This time not by Thanos but by Drax (and his friends), who intend on dragging his daughter Moondragon to an outing whether she likes it or not! Each path and fight you choose will determine the next set of encounters’ Buffs and Debuffs. Defeat each encounter along your way and help Moondragon escape Titan!
Your choices of paths and combatants will activate Trap Buffs that will change the fights ahead of you as you go. So remember, when the going gets tough… you did this to yourself!
Event Quest – Seed Of Doubt
Tasked with protecting the powerful World Seed, the Guardians of the Galaxy find a cozy corner of deep space to hide in. But the Guardians have a way of stumbling into trouble, and they soon find themselves rescuing MOONDRAGON and arguing with ADAM WARLOCK while also dodging attacks from all sides. Will the Guardians be able to convince their newly reunited compatriots they can be trusted to keep their cosmically important cargo safe, or will there be a seed of doubt?
New Champions Enter The Contest
The Sovereign are an advanced race, arrogant in nature and meticulously designed. Each Sovereign is developed through genetic engineering in birthing pods, but no Sovereign was created as faultless as the powerful Adam Warlock. The High Priestess Ayesha created Adam to be the perfect Sovereign and to ultimately put an end to the Guardians of the Galaxy.
After the tragic death of her father at the hands of the Mad Titan, Thanos, Moondragon was adopted by the Eternals on Saturn’s moon Titan, where she honed her latent physical, spiritual, and telepathic abilities. When she encountered the cosmic entity known as the Dragon of the Moon, Heather adopted the name Moondragon after she seemingly bested the creature. Over time she grew arrogant with her newfound powers, and came under the sway of the Dragon of the Moon, who had actually survived and taken refuge inside of her mind, seeking to slowly corrupt Heather throughout her mission to defeat Thanos. Having to contend with the influence of the outer entity known as the Dragon of the Moon, Moondragon joins The Contest as one of the most powerful Telepaths in the Battlerealm.
7-Star Quest – Shooting Star
