The free-to-play mobile fighting game Marvel: Contest of Champions by developer Kabam is a game in which you amass a bespoke team of characters from the omnipresent Marvel Comics roster. And, just like the comics, no combination is out of bounds – in fact, specific groupings of your favourite heroes can bag you some added bonuses! The game, known for being rife with consistent updates, has now released its latest offering with Pyramid X.
This update introduces new details on the Pyramid X House. Founded by ‘First Among Mutants’ Apocalypse, Pyramid X acts as the supervillain’s floating seat of power within Mutopia, capital city of Egyptia. For the uninitiated, Houses are the factions within the game to which you pledge loyalty with a total number of 4 currently in the game.
The rich lore and backstories within this game are seriously impressive, and we urge even casual Marvel fans to check out the details here for an in-depth look at this latest update.
That’s not all, however, as with this comes a new character, or at least a new version of one. Introducing Storm (Pyramid X) – not the weather-wielding heroic mutant we know and love, but rather a zealous rendition of the fan-favourite. Here’s what her bio has to say:
This is not the Storm you know. She has been indoctrinated into Pyramid X by her God Apocalypse. Storm is able to channel her weather-bending abilities through her ornate wand Heset’s Ruin, to raze entire cities and subjugate those who do not submit to En Sabah Nur.
