Latest Operation: Takedown event brings Oktober Guard to the G.I. Joe Battleground universe!

There wasn’t much of a warning this time around, but G.I. Joe: Battleground has launched their latest event tonight, another round of their “Operation: Takedown” theme.  For the first time ever, we see the Oktober Guard in the G.I. Joe: Battleground universe, each with their own special bonus against the Takedown boss… Darklon!

I know folks have their questions about the game, but every time I see new artwork, I fall a little bit more in love with that aspect of the game.  I really love how the folks from DeNA are using so much source material from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club designs, which run rampant through this entire event.  Very cool.

Check out some screen caps below.
