Marvel Avengers Alliance Season 2 Trailer


Part I: The New Look of Season 2
By now you all know that Season 2 has a dramatically new look. You’re well aware of the updated tabs in the mission screen, but the changes to the UI go deeper than that, and some of them you’ve already seen in the game (like the updated tasks window).

We believe a big part of making something feel fresh is making it look fresh as well. The aesthetics and the gameplay go hand-in-hand. When Season 2 launches, you’ll see a mission screen that looks a lot like this -

Pretty fancy, huh? But what does it all mean? Well, let’s dig in. First of all, gone away are Mastery Stars (in Season 2 Chapters only -- Spec Ops and Season 1 unaffected). Taking their place is a new Chapter Mastery system. One that is based on accomplishments rather than grinding.

You’ll note that each of the bars on the left-hand side is associated with a color-coordinated icon. Some of these are familiar, some of them are new events, and some are new icons for old events. From top to bottom here are what the bars represent.

  1. The top one is your overall progress in the chapter (basically all the bars below it added together and in the form of a percentage)
  2. Tasks (which will work more like Spec Ops do in this case - example below)
  3. Deploys
  4. Incursions (more on this another day)
  5. Heroic Battles (more on this another day)
  6. Challenge Modes (now mandatory to be completed once per mission if you want Chapter Mastery)
  7. Epic Bosses (now clearly identified on the mission select screen for both Seasons as well as Spec Ops). See the matching icon on Mission 6 here as an example.

(This is what you see when you click the task icon for a chapter in your task bar)

Ok, so now you know what all the icons stand for, and you know you have to complete each of these items, across all 6 missions to be the master of the chapter. As you can see in this example, when you complete a particular type of event in a mission that icon on the mission image will light up. Missions with only 4 icons do not have an epic boss.

See that I’ve completed the one Incursion event in Mission 1, so it’s red (instead of grey) and the Chapter Progress bar for Incursions is filled up a little bit. This new identifier is also on Season 1 and Spec Op Chapters if there’s an epic boss in a mission. In the new trailer you also see the bar filling up on the right-hand side of the screen when you complete a particular event. Expect to see that slide on the screen each time you complete events that qualify for Chapter Mastery.

And that’s just barely the tip of the iceberg. There are so many small interface updates like that scattered all over. You’ll be lucky to find them all in one sitting! Like icons that show you which Season your tasks are from or us adding a new mission info screen to show you mission-specific rewards, leaderboards, story, and other info. If you look closely at the first image you can even see we changed the background for the Season 2 mission screen. Black Panther looking up at another Earth. What could that be? Pretty cool stuff!

There’s so much to see and do in this update, we hope you love how we’ve combed the game looking for areas to improve and found as many as we can. Of course there will be many more updates to the UI in the future, but there is quite a lot here for one patch! There are many more updates to share with you, but we’ll talk about them over the next few days.
