Marvel United: Multiverse is on its final stretch, and the Kickstarter campaign continues to reveal expansions for so long Marvel fans will absolutely go nutsR. One of the biggest new additions is the Civil War expansion, an expansion based on one of Marvel’s most well-known stories, and if you’re a fan of the original comic series, you won’t want to miss what the expansion has to offer. in the shop. New sculptures featuring Captain America and Iron Man are joined by the larger-than-life Goliath miniature, and the exclusives are pretty sweet too. You can view the full Kickstarter campaign here.
The $40 expansion includes a total of 10 heroes, with the default heroes being Captain America (Civil War sculpt), Iron Man (Civil War sculpt), Wonder Woman, Spectrum, Tigra, Kate Bishop, Yellow Jacket, and Goliath, and then there are two Kickstarter Exclusive heroes in Hulkling and Iron Spider.
Civil War is heroes against heroes by nature and thus brings a new way to play the game. Two teams of heroes battle without a villain, and you can fight in the more casual Clash of Heroes mode or the more competitive and themed Registration Clash. In Registration Clash you divide yourself into two teams of 2 or 3, and each team has different challenges and tries to achieve its own objectives.
Teams alternate on the storyline, and while no threats are used on locations, you can only use an End of Turn effect if your team controls that location. Overflows also damage a hero from the team controlling the affected location. Those locations include Washington DC, Sokovia, Avengers Mountain, The Raft, Bar With No Name, and Garrett Castle.
The teams are split between Captain America’s Anti-Registration Blue Team (Secret Avengers) and Iron Man’s Pro-Registration Red Team. Cap’s team will have to complete a series of missions one by one to win the game, which involves rescuing civilians, eliminating them, and more. On Iron Man’s side, they must apprehend the Secret Avengers, and for that they can add Cell cards to their Vault on their dashboard. If they can knock out a Blue Team hero, they can place them in a cell and activate that card’s effect, though the Blue team can knock out their teammates by using 2 actions of the same type in a turn.
Clash of Heroes, on the other hand, is a more casual Player vs Player mode. The teams compete for points this time and you can earn them by rescuing civilians, defeating Thugs, checking locations and taking out the opposing team’s heroes. Population cards are drawn everywhere and then you can use heroic actions on locations to gain public approval and switch control, and then you also have event cards that can shake things up.
You can find even more information about the Civil War expansion on the official Kickstarter page, and you can find a full walkthrough on the gameplay and some of the heroes in the video above.
