We have known for a while now that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 was going to receive post release DLC support with it’s Expansion Pass. Though to what is a very nice surprise we are also starting to see free content updates arriving as well. As of the launch of the game (19th July worldwide), Loki is now a free addition to the already large Marvel cast list.
It has also been confirmed that more characters are in the pipeline to arrive as free DLC, with now confirmed X-men stars Cyclops and Colossus as the first to arrive on August 30th worldwide.
The first Expansion Pass pack “Marvel Knights” is planned to arrive sometime during Fall 2019. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is out now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

During Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct yesterday, they showed off some new features to upcoming collaboration with Team Ninja Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Along with showing some cool gameplay segments, some story cutscenes and other flashy stuff you come to expect from Team Ninja, at the end an Expansion Pass was announced for the title.
The Expansion Pass though looks to be in a very similar vein to how Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors treated theirs. A modest fee for three big content packs, in this case focusing on Marvel Knights, X-Men and Fantastic Four.
Below you can read what the Expansion Pass contents will include:
Expand your adventure and roster of playable characters in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order game with the paid Expansion Pass, which grants access to three exclusive DLC packs that will become available as they release one at a time after the game’s launch and will not be available for individual purchase.
DLC packs will contain new content such as playable characters, modes, and additional story.
Includes content from popular franchises, like the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Marvel Knights.
First DLC pack will be available in Fall 2019.
Purchasers of the Expansion Pass to receive an in-game alternative-color chef outfit for Deadpool at game launch..
The DLC itself will start to roll out this Fall with it’s first pack; Marvel Knights. You can check out the full trailer from the Nintendo Direct below:

We are getting ever closer to Disney/Marvel, Nintendo and KOEI Tecmo/Team Ninja’s joint collaborative effort, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order release date, and now GameInformer is heavily featuring the title as June 2019’s cover story for their magazine.

You can read GameInformer’s official press release below:
More than a decade ago, the X-Men Legends and Marvel Ultimate Alliance games lit up our gaming screens, fulfilling the fantasies of comic book fans everywhere with the chance to build our own superhero teams and beat down the bad guys in rollicking action/RPG adventures. Then, like they were snapped out of existence, the series disappeared.
Now an unexpected partnership between Marvel Games, Nintendo, and Koei Tecmo / Team Ninja is bringing Ultimate Alliance back to life. The new Switch exclusive releases on July 19, and we had the opportunity to visit Nintendo’s North American headquarters and experience the game for ourselves. We got exclusive hands-on access with a bevy of heroes, saw some brand-new playable characters, and spoke with all the involved teams about how this unlikely team-up came to be. If you’re riding high on the Marvel excitement train the way we are, you won’t want to miss our exclusive look at the game, which headlines the new June issue of Game Informer.
As well as the above information, more content to be released in June, there is also a coverage trailer which you can view below:
