In fact, Sinister Six Heroes did not change the balance of the game at all. In fact, they were a big disappointment, at least for me.Marvel has spent the last few years neglecting one of its most iconic properties, the Fantastic Four. However, earlier this year, Marvel announced that its First Family will return in a big way, starting with appearances in several games. These appearances have included everything from the team announced as a future DLC in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 to the Bombastic Bag Man suit that is added to Spider-Man on PS4.
In Marvel Strike Force, that return came in the form of raids that featured Doctor Doom as a non-playable character. While it was great to see Doom in the game, it was disappointing that it wasn’t playable and none of the Fantastic Four appeared. However, when I interviewed FoxNext’s vice president and general manager, Amir Rahimi, a couple of months later, he told me that the study had acquired the rights of the Fantastic Four and that fans should expect “some really cool things.” The content that Rahimi hinted at last became known, as the Fantastic Four and his former ally / nemesis Namor will soon join the list.
The Fantastic Four are coming to MARVEL Strike Force
The Thing returns fire to enemies that attack him, and he provides armor to Fantastic Four and Namor allies. Human Torch flips negative effects applied to him to positive ones while boosting the damage of Fantastic Four and Namor allies.
Outside Alliance War, Namor does not have massive synergies with the Fantastic Four than the right team members, but seems to be a great asset in War Offense. While attacking in the Alliance War, Namor grants offense, diversion and damage attacks to all Fantastic Four allies and himself. In addition, his level passive ability also damages him and increases armor in all modes.
These characters will be added as part of the next game update. Prior to this announcement, the most recent additions to Marvel Strike Force have included several X-Men and Sinister Six. FoxNext has also been mocking the arrival of Agent Coulson, and has said he is currently working to bring Cyclops to the list.
