Erik Killmonger Enters Marvel: Contest of Champions

As the whole world is eagerly waiting for the premiere of the live-action Black Panther movie that debutes King T’Challa of Wakanda starring actor Chadwick Boseman (Captain America: Civil War, Gods of Egypt) in the titular lead role, let's not forget about the film's primary antagonist Erik Killmonger, portrayed by Michael B. Jordan (Creed, The Wire). He finally steps into Marvel: Contest of Champions to claim his rightful place.

For long, Erik Killmonger has been an arch-nemesis for one of Marvel's most prominent black superhero, Black Panther. Their rivalry eventually found its way to the silver screen with the release of the movie and his arrival to the Marvel Cinematic Universe calls for a celebration. So, developer Kabam's lead character artist Gene Campbell and game designer Piero Herrera were all game for that.

While Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan's character goes into clash into theaters, Erik Killmonger follows his arch-enemy from the lands of Wakanda to The Collector's cosmic Battlerealm of Champions. Just like the studio has paid keen attention to details for the character and its design, Contest of Champions developers also put the same level of effort in the game to do justice to Killmonger for bringing him into the arena.




The greatest Champions the universe could offer, The Collector has amassed them all and Erik Killmonger is one of his newest collections. He brings the best defensive abilities on the table if you play offense with him. He receives Indestructible Charges when a Special 2 Attack is activated and it lets him resist a Special 3 Attack from his adversary without breaking a sweat or taking damage.

His character can shrug off enemy attacks during a block using his Counterpunch Charges and begin performing his very own combo. This attack tactics is very effective against Stun Immune opponents of Battlerealm. Erik Killmonger is most effective on a fight with the company of Black Panther (Civil War), The Void and Winter Soldier. These combinations will grant you Regeneration and help you get True Strike pretty easily, the latter of which is quite helpful against Champions like Spider-Man.

A fighting game available to play on Android and iOS devices from Kabam, Marvel: Contest of Champions is free-to-play for all. We have high hopes for Marvel StudiosBlack Panther that is releasing worldwide this weekend and it provided a wonderful opportunity for the developers to bring new cinematic incursions of the popular Marvel character.

Gladiator Hulk Enters Marvel: Contest of Champions

The Collector did an impressive job of bringing the biggest and baddest of contenders from across the universe and more are still joining. When Marvel Studios presents Thor: Ragnarok hit the theatres; it gave us two new Champions on Battlerealm. One of them was Chris Hemsworth's version of Thor portrayed in the film and another being Cate Blanchett's Hela. Now, the arena of Champions is going to see a new contender, who lives to destroy his opponents.

We already know that the green goliath is notorious for his untamed savage rage and all he lacked all this time was an arena full of audience to exhibit his showmanship. On Earth, he has crushed many with his unstoppable raw strength and The Contest offers him a wide array of Champions to smash from. On the land of Sakaar, he totally changed his outlook by wearing gladiatorial armor and wielding weapons to the battle.




Though The Collector's Battlerealm already have a jade giant rampaging around, the one that is inspired from the film is very different and unique in his own “Gladiator” glory. He is more ruthless towards his adversaries and he demands for cheer from the crowd as he smashes the Champions. This green one is not jolly at all. He is mean in a fight and doesn't shy away from brutally using his arena weapons in battle.

The new Gladiator Hulk’s ability kit is all about smashing. His Special 1 sends out shockwaves to his opponent as he throws his hammer down. He attacks using both weapons in Special 2 and Special 3 comes with his axe throwing to the enemy before a leaping SMASH! He is great to pair with Black Widow, Hela, Loki and Gladiator Thor as this will increase the special attacks of his associates and give him exclusive bonuses.

Released back in 2014 as a free-to-play fighting game for Android and iOS mobile devices, Marvel: Contest of Champions is developed and published by Kabam. Since the very beginning, the game has been adding many new and popular characters from Marvel Comics to the Battlerealm for an epic showdown. The movie versions of the characters are just to celebrate the release of the characters on big-screen and we hope Gladiator Hulk will surely be popular in the game.

The Sentry Enters Marvel: Contest of Champions

Things are about to shake heavily on Battlerealm as The Sentry steps into the arena of Kabam's mobile fighting game Marvel: Contest of Champions. This Golden Guardian of good happens to be one of the most-powerful characters from Marvel Universe that has now set his footsteps on the vastness of The Contest. He always had too much power at his disposal and then there is The Void whom he has to keep in check to avoid death and destruction of the innocent.

The Sentry is now a playable character in Marvel: Contest of Champions and check out this video to witness the special move highlights of the Golden Guardian.




Those who calls The Sentry as Marvel's Superman, truly undermines him because there are heroes like Hyperion and Thor to claim that fame. We have game designer Erich Kohlweg and art director Gabriel Frizzera to thank for bringing this Mighty Avenger and all his super-powers on the table and now the Champions of Battlrealm are in trouble. However, the version of The Sentry we got our hands on is an old, rugged version of the hero who came back after being lost in the Battlrealm for the last 35 years.

His alter ego Robert Reynolds was picked up at the very beginning of The Contest by Maestro for his master The Collector. With his unmatched might, he almost effortlessly beat all the others participants of the arena and became an agent of his master. We got the motion comic offerings a small glimpse at that too right here.




Although he has the power of a million exploding suns, he won't be using it all. He will be good defense against the likes of Hulk, teaming up with Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Vision seems pretty likely for him. If a combo can be carried out with him properly, it will cause significant impact on the enemy. Not only is he good for inflicting damage on the opponent, he is better at sustaining attacks too. On low health, Sentry’s can regenerate his health using his Special 3 Attack.

Since The Sentry has already joined the Battlrealm you can just start playing with the character in Marvel: Contest of Champions on your very own Android or iOS devices. If you can gain mastery over his gameplay then other Champions of The Contest should tremble when he will enter a fight. Considering the character recently making appearance in the monthly Doctor Strange comic-book series after long absence was surely a good time to bring him in.

Marvel: Contest of Champions 3rd Anniversary!

After making its way into the world of free-to-play fighting game on mobile platforms in 2014, Marvel: Contest of Champions have successfully marked its third anniversary this week. This incredible milestone has become possible for the developer team of Kabam, who's been constantly introducing new heroes and villains into the mix of the Battlerealm. While this occasion cause for a celebration, it also waves toward many bright possibilities.

Marvel: Contest of Champions 3rd Anniversary!

Contest of Champions has been going on for a straight three years and The Collector plans on keeping the brawls on Battlerealm ongoing. There is someone fighting someone else all the time and it is what makes this is a crazy place in the universe. Kabam is constantly working on the game to give the veteran players something to get busy with and make things challenging for the newcomers. Thus, they keep everyone on their toes and the brawl never gets boring.

The heroes and villains over the place have been fighting each other and that should've left the place as a complete mess. While the fighting has been going for three Earth-years, time is relative on Battlerealm and that means, they are battling for eternity or maybe for a few moments. However, this concept fits pretty well to fighting game where Marvel characters are picking on one another and hitting on faces.




The developer team receives frequent requests of adapting major crossover events or storylines from Marvel Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe but what they are more interested in is to introduce some lesser-known Marvel characters into the mix and let people know more about it. The introduction of Howard the Duck, The Hood or Moon Knight to the lore of Contest of Champions was such attempt.

Over 1 Billion Hours Played

With new Summoners joining every moment into the fight with their selected Champions, their number has surpassed over 122 million and the number is growing. This massive supportive crowd seems the life-blood of this game. Hopefully, the number will grow more exponentially as the contest now enters into year four and a lot of new surprises will be revealed. The most impressive number is the amount of fights that occurred in this long period; it's more than 39 billion times!

Ever since the brawls have broken into the Battlerealm, 13 Billion crystals opened by the participating Summoners all over the world. We wonder, why The Collector hasn't has been cranky over this matter! Perhaps, he got a huge collection pile of those crystals than we ever guessed. The crystals and the vast domain of Battlerealm are not the only thing that he has in stock. He reveals less than he actually possesses.

112 Champions Released

As so many battles are taking place and characters are being picked from the roster of 112 Champions introduced till date for the contest, there are some fan-favorites as well. Spider-Man, Wolverine, Colossus, Scarlet Witch and Star-Lord came out as the most picked characters by the Summoners whether or not they are experienced and also these are some of the oldest one from the game.

In another note, this Anniversary week will provide Battlechips, 20% Boost to your XP and Gold for everyone. Some potions and revives will also be on sale this same week just a way of saying thank you to the dedicated players to make Marvel: Contest of Champions such a great success. Kabam also offering the Summoners various titles like SHIELD Agent, Avenger On Call, Seasoned Summoner and Howling Commando based on the time they've playing the game.

There is one other thing that the Summoners and Champions should be aware of, which is The Mad Titan is coming and he will wreck havoc on the Battlerealm. A newly released trailer gives us a glimpse of the kinds of madness Thanos is about to unleash!




While The Collector and the Summoners were busy with their fights for the Contest of Champions on Battlerealm, someone else has been working on his own plan of destruction. No one of this grand arena will stand a chance against Thanos when he will complete his Infinity Gauntlet. The trailer showcases the barrage of heroes going against the tyrant and Thanos just shakes them off like gnats. The ending conflict will surely be EPIC!

Kabam has been building this grand event towards the moment since 2014 after releasing the game; just like the MCU have build-up every detail for Avengers: Infinity War to this point where it is relevant. Marvel: Contest of Champions is celebrating its third consecutive year and the game is available to play on Android and iOS devices.

Hela Enters Marvel: Contest of Champions

Directed by Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, What We Do in the Shadows), the third movie of Thor series from Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: Ragnarok has been released worldwide and is smashing the box-office. After causing death and destruction on the realm of Asgard, film's antagonist, Cate Blanchett's Hela, the Goddess of Death has set her eyes on the Battlrealm and cutting anything that comes into her ways, she heads there fast.

Hela will be a playable character in Kabam's mobile fighting game Marvel: Contest of Champions and check out this video for some of her special move highlights.




Since she is the Goddess of Death, you certainly expect her to cause chaos and death wherever she walks and Hela intends to do just that. Good for her that The Contest has a place for both. She has a beef with Thor already and Battlrealm will open up possibilities for a lot of victims for her to pry upon. As seen in the movie, she can conjure up blade-like sharp mystical weapons to through at her enemies at will. Plus, she can be pretty resistant against high damaging attacks.

One of her special ability is Fury of the Dead, where she just stabs the heart of her opponent. Then there is Soul Breaker to throw twin blades and an axe in full force. Her third special move is Hand of Glory, where she mercilessly unleashes a wave of blades at her enemy. Hela is pretty great to team-up with Angela, Dormammu, Loki and Mephisto in order to take down Champions with high health.

Hela has stepped into the Battlrealm now and whether you're playing Marvel: Contest of Champions on Android or iOS, you should pick her up to rule The Contest with the Goddess of Death and unleash Hel onto The Champions.
