Crystal Dynamics will kick off the Marvel’s Avengers Tachyon Anomaly Event next week on April 22.
The Tachyon Anomaly Event for Marvel’s Avengers will include a variety of activities involving Tachyon Rifts.
You will be tasked with composing a Strike Team that can consist of more than one of the same Hero and take on the world’s threats. This means you can team up as four Hulks, or Thors, or whatever superhero you prefer.
Players can also matchmake into teams that contain the same Heroes, meaning you’ll never know what combination of Heroes you may be part of.
Apparently, AIM’s tampering with time has led to periodic Tachyon Anomalies. Whenever these events occur, Avengers from different timelines can take on threats at a single location.
The first Tachyon Anomaly is happening from April 22 to May 3. During these two weeks, there will be a weekly mission chain that rewards Hivemind Set Gear, and daily missions that reward Priority Set Gear for high-level Heroes.
During the Tachyon Anomaly Event, multiple Tachyon Rift Missions will appear at a time. There will also be new Tachyon Rift Missions for Heroes who are Power Level 1-100. These will rotate every day and offer relevant rewards.
If you are new to the game, the Tachyon Rifts are timed missions that usually require Power Level 140+ with only one appearing on the War Table per week. These missions reward powerful Cosmic Gear that can allow Heroes to gain Willpower upon attacking enemies. In order to unlock Tachyon Rift Missions, players must complete the SHIELD Substation Zero Mission Chain that takes them to the Pacific Northwest.
Crystal Dynamics is also introducing Temporal Assault Nameplates with the event. These are animated nameplates that will “add some shine” to your experience.
You will receive an animated nameplate as a reward for the first completion of the weekly mission chain. It can be used on any hero.
There are also Hero-specific animated nameplates that will be available in the Marketplace:
- April 22-29 – Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Hulk
- April 29 through May 6 – Iron Man, Captain America, Ms. Marvel, Kate Bishop
