It was The Game Awards last week, and with it you get the bevy of annual “World Premiere” announcements. Right off the bat of the awards, Nintendo and KOEI Tecmo dropped a trailer for the second expansion pack for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, called “Rise of the Phoenix”.
The expansion pack features new playable characters from the X-Men franchise such as the titular character Phoenix herself, and cult favourite Gambit. You can check the trailer out below:
Rise of the Phoenix expansion pack will launch December 23rd worldwide for all those who have bought the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 expansion pass. Below you can check out the brief description of the DLC:
Dark Phoenix, the infinitely powerful cosmic entity from one of the X-Men’s greatest sagas, unleashes an era of fiery destruction! Four more X-Men join the alliance with this downloadable content pack: Phoenix, Gambit, Iceman, and Cable. Plus, face-off against friends in the newly added Danger Room mode! Up to four players will compete to see who can take down enemies while being barraged by buffs and debuffs.
