In the leadup to the game’s launch next week, Nintendo has published some new details about the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order Expansion Pass.
Firstly, purchasing the Expansion Pass for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 will not only grant players access to all three DLC packs as they launch, but it will also come with an alternate “Chef Costume” for Deadpool that uses classic X-Men colors. This also confirms that alternate costumes will be obtainable in the game in some capacity. Currently, it is unknown if players will be able to acquire this costume by other means outside of the Expansion Pass.
Secondly, the estimated release dates for the Expansion Pass DLC Packs have been detailed. The first pack will arrive in Fall 2019 as announced previously, with the second arriving later in 2019, while the third will launch in 2020. The packs will not only include new characters, but also additional modes and story. While advertised to include content from Fantastic Four, Marvel Knights and X-Men, the exact contents of each pack are still unknown.
Finally, it has been confirmed that the DLC Packs will not be available for purchase individually, and can only be purchased as a set via the Expansion Pass for $19.99.
