Behold, WTW 42! This week’s updates pack some fun stuff!
Head down to the ICYMI section for links to our awesome trailers that we debuted during last Sunday’s Square Enix Presents that showed off our upcoming content, including the War for Wakanda Expansion!
Museums haven’t reopened yet, but you can bask in artistic appreciation if you go to the Community Spotlight, thanks to some great virtual photography submissions from our friends across the globe.
Speaking of, you can also check out the Community Q&A for a nice chat with a certain virtual photographer we treasure.
And finally, make sure you check out this week’s Marketplace, as we’re having a sale on several cosmetic items, including some fan favorites!
- When multiplayer Mega Hives get introduced to the game, they will be more challenging in difficulty, especially since we reduced the number of steps and have allowed Strike Teams to participate.
- Our team is carefully crafting the Wakandan jungle to ensure it feels fresh and unlike any other environments we have.
The Cosmic Sale is here, and it’s a Legendary one! Several choice items are back and discounted in the Marketplace. This week, you can get Iron Man’s Superior Outfit, Thor’s Unworthy Outfit, Hulk’s Maestro Outfit, and more for 35% off! Additionally, there are more cosmetic items available at prices up to 50% off.

We pulled up our virtual chairs and sat down with Gayming_Avenger for a quick interview discussing virtual gaming photography!
1. Can you introduce yourself?
Hello fellow Avengers! My name is Austin and I’m just one of the cool people who loves Marvel just as much as the next.
2. How did you get involved in virtual photography?
I got involved with VP because growing up I always wanted to take pictures of the things I thought were cool in Video Games, and now that option is available! So I do my best to capture exciting and favorite moments in a game I love such as this one!
3. What is your process like when trying to capture that perfect shot?
My process for capturing the “perfect shot” mostly good lighting, using the Vivid filter, a slight tilt & the perfect field of depth!
4. Any favorite Hero or locations to take photos of?
My favorite hero to capture the most is Black Widow, and my favorite current location to capture my shots are either the Helicarrier or Eastern Seaboard—until we get Wakanda.
5. What is the biggest tip you can give for anyone trying to get into virtual photography?
The biggest tip I can give for those who want to get their best shot is just be yourself, find that angle, the lighting and just create something of your liking. It took me a good minute to really learn my way of capturing the best moments. Definitely use the Vivid filter for more vibrant effects!
6. We asked you to choose your favorite shots to be featured in this blog. Why did you go with these?
The pictures I chose are my favorites because you can really see the details put into the game itself! A-Day is a phenomenal sequence, and the Red Room Takeover capture is my all-time favorite of Widow, because it is badass! Just look at it!
7. Anything you want to say to the community?
I would like to say thank you to those who support and love this game. We are still in the beginning of it and there’s so much more for us to see and play! Keep your hearts open and Reassemble!!
This week’s community spotlight is from our overseas True Believers in the Chinese digital photography community! Check out their fantastic shots below!

The Mega Hive is a single-player chain of eight missions that tests your team’s might. Each week you’ll have a shot at completing the Mega Hive mission chain. When you defeat all eight missions, the Mega Hive mission chain is removed from the War Table until the next weekly refresh, when you can run it again with new modifiers.
This week’s modifiers include:
Weekly Rewards: As you progress through the Mega Hive, rewards start as basic gear, resources, and small amounts of cosmetic currency. The more missions you survive, the more resource drops increase. As you near the final mission, you’ll see better gear and artifacts awarded more often, as well as increased chances for patterns/nameplates. When you complete all eight Mega Hive missions you’ll be rewarded with exclusive goodies reserved for this gauntlet, including a significant amount of high-quality resources.
Till next week, we’ll see you online, and in-game!
