Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 DLC Characters Include Blade, Punisher, And More
That's one big alliance.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is almost here, and Marvel took the time at its San Diego Comic-Con panel on day one to announce its post-launch plans for the game. This includes both an upcoming free update and the first details of the DLC roster for its expansion pass.
First, Cyclops and Colossus will come to the game as a free update on August 30. Those two are both X-Men, but they aren't the previously announced X-Men DLC pack. Instead, the first DLC pack will be Marvel Knights this fall, which will include Blade, Moon Knight, Punisher, and Morbius.
According to a slide shown at the panel, X-Men will come next followed by Fantastic Four, which are planned for 2019 and 2020, respectively. The DLC is also said to contain additional story content and modes--it also nets you an alternative-color chef Deadpool outfit. DLC will not be sold separately, and you'll have to purchase the full expansion pass for $20; the pass is also being sold as a bundle with the full game.
The new Nintendo Switch game releases on July 19. You can check out our Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 review in progress to get an idea of what to expect from this first new entry in the series in many years.
