The second set of paid downloadable content for the Nintendo Switch exclusive title Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 has just gone live. Tons of adjustments have been made, and new mutants are joining the fray in Rise of the Pheonix. The developers have even sprinkled in a new mode that will bring some friendly competition to the forefront of this game's focus. \n \nRise of the Pheonix brings a whole new menu to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. There is now a Menu Select option on the menu, which will let you rotate to other menus for a different look at feel. Rise of the Pheonix has an exclusive Danger Room option that is unique to only that menu. \n \nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=P9bZiXhbfgA \n \nDanger Room is the main focus of this update for many fans. Like in the comics, Beast has created a virtual competitive training program in which two teams race to complete a series of objectives. This could be anything from fighting a series of bosses to defeating a set number of enemies. What matters is that the team that completes the objective first wins. Both teams advance to the next challenge until all three are done. \n \nThese are not basic boss fights and enemy battles. This mode brings in mini-challenges, adding an extra level of danger to the situation. In the Danger Room, players must be ready for the unexpected. \n \nThese mini-challenges appear for both teams and have small tasks like picking up and throwing three items. Teams that complete these tasks will have enhanced or reduced damage, helping your team and hindering your opponent's progress. \n \nThings get even more hectic in the Danger Room as hazards spawn throughout the mission. These machines will add all sorts of debilitating and negative effects. This could be everything from freezing ice orbs to paralyzing machines to a spontaneous game of "the floor is lava." \n \nDanger Mode is available online, locally, or solo with AI teammates. Alongside the Danger Room, a set of new X-Men characters have been released. Each character is unlocked by completing a series of challenging Gauntlet missions. Gambit, Iceman, Phoenix, and Cable all join the team giving you a varied selection for your team. \n \nMarvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is a Nintendo Switch exclusive title. You will need a copy of the core game to download any DLC packs. So it is time to enjoy your holiday season with some new mutants, a new mode, over 50 more levels available for grinding, and much more. Keep in mind that early next year, the Fantastic Four's Shadow of Doom DLC will be making its appearance.
