Marvel’s Avengers free update brings Cloning Lab raid and Winter Soldier | Popgen Tech
Good news, Marvel’s Avengers players: Your endgame content has arrived.
Technically, the Cloning Lab Omega-Level Threat was almost expected two years ago, shortly after the ensemble action-adventure launched on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. But in 2020, Crystal Dynamics didn’t exactly say when The game’s don’t-call-it-a-raid is coming, however, it will only be part of late-game missions and content that will provide loot from special reward pools.
Whatever the case, Cloning Lab Omega-Level Threat became available in a title update that launched on Tuesday. During the activity, the campaign’s top villain — Scientist Supreme Monica Rappacini — revives MODOK but is unable to gain control. MODOK reserved it for super heroes and “has developed new tactics since players faced him in San Francisco,” Crystal Dynamics said, referring to an earlier part of the campaign.
Cloning Lab is a four-on-one battle, heroes vs. MODOK, and heroes are expected to be high level. Players must be Power Level 175 to enter; Loot is capped at power level 185.
In addition to the raid, The Winter Soldier — Bucky Barnes — joins the lineup as a playable hero with the same update. Crystal Dynamics says Winter Solider is “pretty much an assault-focused hero,” with a damage-dealing move set evocative of his mentors, Captain America and Black Widow. The Winter Soldier is accompanied by a mission chain that guides Barnes back to the path of doing good (after an intensive and traumatic brainwashing); completing it rewards players with his classic Bucky costume.
Marvel’s Avengers got its first proper foray — featuring Klaw — last year, when PlayStation players got Spider-Man as a platform-exclusive hero.
