Marvel Heroes Omega received a new update today on PS4 and Xbox One that has brought the first event for console version of the game, this one inspired by Spider-Man: Homecoming.
You’ll be able to take on a new Operation: Daily Bugle, which you must be level 11 to unlock. This will put you against a random assortment of villains who have been members of the Sinister Six. In addition there’s a new legendary mission called Vulture’s Vengeance, also unlocked at level 11.
The Daily Bugle Event, which is account based, features the Daily Bugle Beatdown which will reward an artifact called the Daily Bugle Press Badge. There’s a new legendary item, new medallions, and new artifacts, as well as special StarhTech crafting materials that are only available during the Daily Bugle Event.
