Marvel Heroes 2016 now has its 57th playable character with Elektra. Developer Gazillion has also created an alternate costume heavily inspired by the character’s appearance in Daredevil Season 2. She is voiced by Kat Cressida, most known for Dee Dee on Dexter’s Laboratory.
Elektra attacks with her sai, a rope dart, shurikens and other powerful abilities, such as Marked for Death, which debuffs powerful enemies while buffing herself. Extra care was placed into making her feel like a true assassin: “We opted for a more target-selection mechanic to represent Elektra’s assassination skills rather than basing her strictly around stealth, to differentiate her from other assassins in the game,” says Michael May, Senior Game Designer at Gazillion. “She does have stealth mechanics, but her gameplay is mostly driven around finding high-value targets, marking them, then taking them out.”
