Gazillion Entertainment Announces Marvel Heroes Launch Date
Earlier this week, Gazillion Entertainment finally announced that Marvel Heroes will launch on June 4, 2013. Marvel Heroes is an upcoming free-to-play MMORPG created by David Brevik (the creator of Diablo 1 & 2). Marvel Heroes casts a large number of Marvel characters in an action-rpg MMO that allows players to play solo or team up others online and take up arms against Dr. Doom and his villainous allies in battles that take place at iconic locations in the Marvel Universe.
More on Marvel Heroes (and the playable character list) after the break.
Oh before anything else, check out our interview with Gazillion Entertainment’s COO and President David Brevik about Marvel Heroes for an inside scoop on the game.
So about Marvel Heroes:
It’s a free-to-play game that actually allows you to play through the entire game without spending real world cash. For those players who want to dive deeper into the game’s intricacies, you can also purchase items, heroes, and other additional cool stuff in the in-game store.
What’s differentiates Marvel Heroes over other superhero-themed MMORPG’s is that you can actually choose from Marvel’s stable of mighty superheroes, customize them to your liking and even make them don their various costumes straight from Marvel’s storied vault. For example, you can have your own Spider-Man wear his Future Foundation suit, Symbiote suit, or even the Iron Spider suit. In addition, you can fully customize your hero’s skills, stats, and powers in a way that allows you to play your superhero differently from everyone else.
