Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order
The Ultimate Alliance franchise, and the X-Men Legends series before it, have created some pretty devoted fans. With only the mobile Marvel: Future Fight getting anywhere near the formula in the time since the last entry the community is ravenous for more of the co-op brawler action.
With a giant roster, source material inspired art direction and more content to come we’re even willing to overlook that the title will release on only a single console for the first time in the series.
