Special Operation 16: ApocalypseEdit

Briefing - Test Subjects evolving, Sugar Man lurking, and looming over it all, the shadow of Mr. Sinister. Time to brace ourselves for the inevitable Apocalypse.

New Features & Updates:Edit

Strike Teams OverviewEdit

Spec Op 16 introduces Strike Teams, in which players choose a subset of their team to carry out missions. Players will need to carefully choose the members of their Strike Teams, as only members of the Strike Teams may be used in the upcoming combats and deploys in the next missions.

Additional details:

  • For Spec Op 16, the Strike Teams are sent into split missions, each of which have unique story dialog, deploys, boss encounters and rewards, offering a significant amount of replayability.
  • Players may create their Strike teams at the end of Mission 1, adding up to 40 heroes in each Strike Team
  • At the end of Mission 2, players will need to split their Strike Teams into two new Strike teams, which have a max of 20 (half of the initial max of 40)
  • The Agent may or may not be assigned to a Strike Team. Items and distress calls can still be used when the agent is not present.
