We have a word of warning to all those that are planning to buy Marvel Ultimate Alliance on PS4 this week. It looks like on first impressions, Ultimate Alliance re-release does not come with all the DLC exclusive characters.
This is somewhat surprising, given that Activision are boldly demanding a $60 fee for both MUA 1 and 2, or $40 to buy each game separately.
We didn’t hear much information from the publisher prior to release and there has been no definitive statement on the issue of DLC, which all fans need to know about before deciding whether or not to purchase.
For those that are not aware, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 had DLC characters such as Venom, Hulk, Magneto, Nightcrawler, Doctor Doom and Cyclops.
However it looks like they are missing from the PS4 version, as they were initially locked away to the original Xbox 360 release and haven’t been put into the pot as default characters for the re-release.
As for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, it looks like the DLC characters will be included by default, but that still doesn’t make up for the complete silence regarding the original game.
With PSP, Xbox 360 and even Gameboy Advance characters, are you expecting some answers from Activision before you buy this game?
Let us know if you have bought the game and are unhappy about the locked DLC characters in the roster. Surely Activision are not planning to charge extra for them?
