v27.0 Release Notes

The Red Room Academy Requests your Assistance

In the wake of the Cabal’s collapse, Black Widow has been tasked with locating and recovering a lost mind control weapon. To accomplish her mission, Agent Romanoff will need the help of an old friend. Red Guardian is a fellow former soviet and an honorable and trustworthy ally. 

However, they soon discover that they are not the only ones chasing the lost Cabal technology. A secretive mastermind has employed the skills of Taskmaster, the photo-reflexive mercenary, to stop Black Widow from finding this weapon at all costs!

It’s a race across The Battlerealm, with new foes to fight and where old allegiances will be tested in this month’s Event Quest: Black Widow: Red By Dawn!

From out of the shadows, two new Champions step into the Contest!

Black Widow, A.K.A. Natasha Romanoff, is one of the world’s greatest assassins and most accomplished S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents. A former KGB Agent and graduate of the infamous Red Room program, Black Widow brings her shocking new style of combat to the contest. Use her abilities to deal out big damage when you punish an opponent’s mistakes!

Red Guardian, A.K.A. Alexei Shostakov, was an ace fighter pilot and superb soldier whose accolades made him the perfect choice for Russia’s own super-soldier program. Armed with his specialized combat shield, Red Guardian finds more use for it inflicting trauma on his opponents than shielding his own body.

You are being contacted on behalf of the Red Room Academy

Summoners, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to defeat certain targets and recover valuable Intel stolen by our enemies. 

Each day, you will be assigned a Target in a Special Objective that is in possession of a special Keycard. Information is limited, so we will give you as much information as we can, but it will be up to you to discover the identity of the Target. 

After you have defeated the Target, you can use the Keycard to enter a Red Room Quest, where you will gather the important Intel that has been stolen from us.

In exchange for this important Intel, we will offer you the chance to purchase technology that will allow you to access special Red Rift Quests, or a Dimensional Chronometer, which for the first time ever, will allow you to choose your own reward in a Rift once throughout the entire month.

Should any member of your team be caught, the Red Room Academy will disavow all knowledge of your actions. Good luck, Summoners.
