Marvel Battlegrounds offers up 8 awesome new arenas to do battle in. Each arena is a playground of destructive environments, traps, dangers, and weapons. As each arena is destroyed and torn apart, the worlds can evolve and change thrusting the characters into new levels.
The 12 Levels advertised on the packaging and retailer descriptions are divided up by the 8 arenas, as each arena is destroyed or evolves and the gameplay shifts to a new area, that counts as a new level. Some arenas aren’t destructible to the point where they change and the entire battle takes place on only 1 level. So far we’ve only been able to account for 10 of the 12 levels.
The story mode of Battlegrounds starts players on Earth, as they battle through a train yard, sewers and training facilities. Eventually the battles go off planet, tossing the heroes into adventures on the moon, lost in Knowhere, and eventually to the sacred halls of Asgard.
Check out a quick look at each of the nine featured arenas!
Brooklyn Train Yard
Summon trains and debris to smash your opponents in the wreckage of the Brooklyn Train Yard. This arena appears to only have one level.
S.H.E.I.L.D. Lunar Outpost
This arena is one that transforms during battle depending on the amount of damage dealt by the battle. The floor eventually drops out revealing a lower level of the outpost with an electrified floor. This arena appears to have two levels.
In the belly of the beast, this arena inside a giant Ultron is full of dangers and perils! Ultron’s giant robot brain (or giant robot heart?) tosses giant arms full of electricity to stun and damage the fighters duking it out. This arena appears to only have one level.
Travel along the dark Wakandan Mines dodging rocks of Vibranium tossed by mining robots, until the cart crashed tossing you out into the secret world of Wakanda, featuring a giant panther statue with laser eyes! This arena appears to have two levels.
Get dirty under the streets of NYC in the Manhattan Sewers! This arena features a river of green murky water that can suddenly flood and flush any character caught in the stream off the map. This arena appears to only have one level.
Middle Of Knowhere
This deep space platform is one of the arenas where your characters can fall off the sides, temporarily stunning them and causing a delay until they are teleported back into the arena. Trigger the Knowhere defenses and summon a giant Kree ship to attack the platforms or a huge rocket burst to damage anyone stuck in the center. This arena appears to only have one level.
Avengers Training Facility
Train in the Avenger’s facility where the ground is constantly shifting and explosive barrels and crates continue popping up from the battleground’s floor. This arena appears to only have one level.
The frozen gates of Asgard surrounds the fighters with high frozen walls keeping all the combat centered and tight. Arena obstacles include giant ice orbs that will freeze your character if they come close their area of effect. This arena appears to only have one level.
