Something big is on the way to Millennium City. Over the next two months, starting next week, we’ll be releasing new adventures, planned for a release every two weeks.
This mega-event is going to unfold similarly to the Nighthawk event from last year: New missions will be added over time, with new items available to tie in with the theme. Everything’s going to culminate at the end of the event, with what’s planned to be a custom Alert. Starting next week, you'll be able to get a free costume piece, plus the new Grav Bike Arsenal lockbox.
Next week, we’ll get this event kicked off with a bang. Planned to start 1/11, everyone who plays can get free costume pieces. This will certainly include a helmet, possibly a robe – brand-new, totally free, and available for that weekend. Stay tuned for more details, plus screenshots!
And yes… this is going to tie in with the mega-event. You'd better believe that whatever's in store for Millennium City, you'll get to incorporate it into your costume!
In addition, next week’s maintenance will introduce the new Grav Bike Arsenal lockbox. This is the one you’ve been waiting for, including three versions of the new grav bikes. UNTIL knows something’s in the air, and they’re given you clearance for these powerful new vehicles to help heroes get prepared.
That’s right – grav bikes aren’t just dangerous, they’re stylish enough that your character will be fully visible riding it. The Hawk is the top prize in the Grav Bike Arsenal lockbox, and it’s the most powerful of these three grav bikes. The Hawk includes a total of eight MOD slots for customization.
This is currently the only way to get upgraded Mark 2 Decoy Drones, so if you need a power to taunt enemies, get your gloves on the Hawk!
4 Weapons MOD slots; comes with Decoy Drones Mk 2 and Gravity Pulse Mk 1.
2 Defensive MOD slots.
2 Support MOD slots.
The Copperhead and Raptor are ready to strike with a total of four MOD slots. These vehicles have the same base stats and loadout, but have different models
2 Weapons MOD slots; comes with Micromunitions Mk. 1.
1 Defensive MOD slot.
1 Support MOD slot.
Grav Bike Arsenal Lockbox prize table:
As with previous lockboxes, the Grav Bike Arsenal will drop from enemies defeated while playing. They can be unlocked with Cosmic Keys of Power, available in the C-Store for 100 ZEN or ten for 900 ZEN – all future lockboxes will also be unlockable with Cosmic Keys. The grav bike line will be supported with additional releases throughout this mega-event.
(Remember that this is a preview. If there are any changes to any of this, we’ll make sure to announce it when they go live.)
These prizes will all be available in the Grav Bike Arsenal lockbox next week, plus you’ll be able to get free costume pieces next weekend. Careful, Champions – the invasion’s already begun...
