Later this month Activision is releasing eight additional characters for Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Players can purchase the new characters on the Xbox Live Marketplace in two packages:
Hero Pack: Hawkeye, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, the Hulk
Villain Pack: Magneto, Sabretooth, Doctor Doom, Venom
Each pack costs 500 MS points ($6.25) or you can buy all eight characters at a slightly cheaper price, 800 MS points ($10). The new characters have only been announced for the Xbox 360 at this point, but since the Playstation 3 supports microtransactions too it’s possible that these packs will come to the Playstation 3 at a later date.
