Five years on, Marvel Contest of Champions is still growing strongly

Since its launch five years ago, Kabam’s Marvel Contest of Champions has accumulated 215 downloads and 2.8 billion hours of play time.

The data was released to coincide with the fighting game’s fifth anniversary.

During that time 70 billion in-game fights between comic superheroes have been completed, increasing by 26 per cent when compared to 2018.

Launched on December 10th, 2014, Marvel Contest of Champions arrived with 30 characters. That number has now increased more than five times, with 160 Champions currently available for battle.
