During this weekend’s Ministravaganza from Atomic Mass Games, the company announced changes coming to Marvel: Crisis Protocol. Along with new miniatures, new updates that are sure to shake up the current game were revealed.
The core rules update includes the following changes:
10 tactic cards along with making fewer unaffiliated cards. The idea is to make a more narrow focus of characters and team building focused on affiliations.
But, that’s a minor change it seems.
Crisis selection is changing. Full random crisis selection is coming possibly bringing more balance to the game.
Infinity Gems will no longer take up a roster slot. Now, players will state which gems characters are using at roster construction instead of list construction.
The same character can be taken multiple times! Multiple Spider-Man! Multiple Black Widow! You can finally take multiple characters with the same Alias on your roster but won’t be able to use them on the same squad. This is absolutely a move by Atomic Mass Games to shift the game towards affiliations and has a lot of impact on certain ones.
The rules changes will be out before the end of the year.
But, the biggest “ask” is coming! Updated character cards! Cards are not just getting an updated look but “classic” characters will be getting updates! These updated character cards will be released for free with a character pack being released later.
New pre-orders for Atomic Mass Games‘ Marvel: Crisis Protocol are live and they’re giving us a first look and some reveals of what we can expect in the coming months.
Colossus and Magik come in a two-pack waiting to be added to your X-Men! The siblings’ box set features miniatures, character stat cards, and 3 team tactic cards for $39.95.
Gambit and Rogue are ready to team up in this pack. The on-again, off-again, on-again, duo features the characters, 4 team tactic cards, 1 crisis card, and 9 tokens for $39.95.
Rounding out new X-Men-related miniatures, the Juggernaut is here to destroy his way through your rivals. The release features the miniature and 3 tactic cards. There’s also an alternative left fist so you can have him with a closed fist or holding a traffic light. He retails for $49.95.
Rounding out the X-Men theme of releases is a new terrain expansion, the “Crashed Sentinel“! For $59.95, you et a destroyed car, some Sentinel debris, a crushed building, and a sign.
Atomic Mass Games has revealed a new release for Marvel: Crisis Protocol that revisits two of its first releases. The new “Rival Panels” box set features Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus with two new sculpts.
From the announcement, the new set sounds like it’ll feature the same cards from the Core Set for the characters with a foil upgrade. Also included are copies of the All Webbed Up, Well-Laid Plans, and Blind Obsession Team Tactic cards featuring new art.
This is the third sculpt for “Peter Parker” Spider-Man but only the second version since the character card is the same as the Core Set. This is the second sculpt of Doctor Octopus.
Rival Panels: Spider-Man vs. Doctor Octopus will be out in the Fall.
Atomic Mass Games revealed a miniature of Ms. Marvel for their Marvel: Crisis Protocol miniature game. With the character’s main power being size manipulation a lot of speculation began that we’d see a second model of the character. And now we know that is indeed the case.
Atomic Mass Games has revealed an embiggened version of the character which will likely be available as a two-pack like Ant-Man and The Wasp which each featured two figures.
Coming September 2021, it looks like things are about to get strange and magical for Atomic Mass Games‘ Marvel: Crisis Protocol.
A new video has given us a look at a whole new range of figures that’s heavily focused on the magic users of the Marvel Universe. Included in the wave are:
And it all comes together with a new scenery kit in Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum. That scenery piece is a popular one with 3D printers with versions already released by fans.
This is the second Doctor Strange to be released for the game, only the third character to see a dual release. This one sports a completely different look than the previous release which also featured Wong.
We knew that Moon Knight was coming for Atomic Mass Games‘ Marvel: Crisis Protocol. We now have a solid look at the character in a newly released image.
Moon Knight is an interesting addition to the game who will bring more close combat to rosters.
Created by Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin, the character first appeared in Werewolf by Night #32 in 1975.
The character is similar to Batman in that they are both wealthy and use their wealth to fight crime with gadgets along with both being martial artists. However, Moon Knight is very different in ways. Marc Spector, a former boxer, Marine, CIA operative, and mercenary found himself betrayed and is left for dead. He’s approached by the Egyptian moon god Khonshu who offers him the chance to be his avatar on Earth. The character also has created multiple personalities to aid his fight against crime. He also might have dissociative identity disorder and is one of Marvel’s most high-profile Jewish characters.
Moon Knight will be played by Oscar Isaac in an upcoming show on Disney+.
So, what do you think of the miniature? What do you expect as far as gameplay?
Atomic Mass Games has released a teaser image of Jean Grey and Cassandra Nova. The two will be released in a pack together for the game Marvel: Crisis Protocol. Jean Grey is one of the more high-profile X-Men who hasn’t been released yet and Cassandra Nova is one of the more obscure villains.
Jean Grey debuted in X-Men #1 in 1963 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. One of the founding X-Men, she has telepath and telekinesis. The miniature for the game takes inspiration from her 1990s outfit design, one also close to the animated series look for the character.
Cassandra Nova first appeared in New X-Men #114 in July 2001. Created by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, the character is a “mummudra”, a parasitic life form born bodiless on the astral plane. The character features psionic powers and to create a body. In the “only can happen in comics”, Nova is a parasitic twin of Charles Xavier copying his DNA to make her own body. She’s the dark shadow compared to Xavier and commanded the army of Sentinels that committed genocide and murdered 16 million mutants in Genosha.
What do you expect from these two additions to the game? Guesses on powers and how they’ll play and bring to the game?
Atomic Mass Games has posted a photo giving a solid look at Omega Red. The miniature is coming soon to Marvel: Crisis Protocol. Created by Jim Lee and John Byrne in 1992 the character debuted in X-Men #4.
Arkady Gregorivich Rossovich was a serial killer born in Soviet Russia who was experimented on as part of their supersoldier program.
Omega Red has carbonadium tentacles which he uses as an attack and can also drain victims of their “life” energy. It’s a vampiric like attack and is essential to Omega Red’s survival.
He’s an enemy of Wolverine, Maverick, and Sabretooth who he has crossed when they were members of Team X and have clashed every since.
