Colossus and Cyclops will be free updates, while Moon Knight and Punisher headline the paid Marvel Knights pack.
More characters were revealed for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 at the Marvel Games panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con.
The highlight is that Colossus and Cyclops, two mainstays of the X-Men Legends and Marvel Ultimate Alliance games, will be coming as free DLC on August 30. Additionally, four characters from the first DLC pack, themed around Marvel Knights, were revealed. Blade, Moon Knight, Punisher, and Morbius are, according to Nintendo, just "a few" of the characters in that first pack. Blade and Moon Knight made earlier apperances in Marvel Ultimate Alliance, while Punisher and Morbius are making their playable series debuts.
Lastly, Loki was confirmed as an unlockable playable character, joining the ranks of Magneto and Elektra as hidden boss characters that can later join your party.
