Thwart the Marvel Super Villains in this New Free-to-Play Marvel Action MMO.
In the past few weeks while playing Diablo, have you ever thought about what it would be like with Marvel characters instead?
Gazillion Entertainment, developer, publisher and operator of massively multiplayer online (MMO) games, has revealed the first glimpse of their free-to-play online game Marvel Heroes. Marvel Heroes combines the energy of action role-playing games with the breadth and immersion of the MMO genre.
Marvel Heroes combines core gameplay elements of Diablo with the expansive library of heroes from the Marvel Universe, including all your favourite Avengers.
Drawing upon the 8,000-plus heroes and villains in the Marvel Universe, Marvel Heroes allows players to become their favourite Marvel Super Heroes – from the popular womanizing Iron Man, Godly Thor and Berserker Wolverine to the lesser known Squirrel Girl and Cable.
Fans will be able to customize their characters by constructing costumes taken from each hero’s rich history, choosing from a huge array of super powers for each character, and finding thousands of other items. There are countless ways for players to tailor their experience.
From what we can gather so far, players will adventure through the Marvel Universe and stop Doctor Doom from some sort of evil scheme involving the Cosmic Cube.
Because of its MMO nature players will not be limited to solo play. Players will be able to meet up with other players, discover missions, and buy items from legendary Marvel characters in areas such as Midtown Manhattan and the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning. While pursuing missions, players will explore such famous Marvel landscapes as the Savage Land, Hell’s Kitchen and Mutant Town.
In public combat zones players will be able to tear apart enemies alongside other without being in a group. If a Sentinel drops down in the middle of the city you could find yourself aided by others who were in the area. Everyone gets rewards based on their percentage of contrinution to the mission/event. Along the same lines as the rifts from Rift.

Written by Brian Michael Bendis, author of Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers, Secret Invasion and countless other successes, Marvel Heroes is inspired by some of the most popular tales and events in Marvel Comics history.
David Brevik, President of Gazillion Entertainment and creator of the massive hit games Diablo and Diablo II says: “I’ve been a big Marvel fan for all of my life. Marvel Heroes represents the combination of Marvel IP with all of the knowledge and experience I gained creating Diablo. It is a dream come true. I’m excited to unveil Marvel Heroes and share this revolutionary MMO with both gamers and Marvel fans.”
“Marvel Heroes marks a new era in gaming for us,” stated TQ Jefferson, Vice President of Games at Marvel. “For fans to actually become their favourite heroes in an original storyline, explore iconic Marvel landscapes and combat some of the most dangerous villains in a shared experience is unbelievably compelling.”
There is no news as of yet what microtransaction model of Free-to-play Marvel Heroes will be using, but you can be sure we will be happy do dive in and give it a shot.

The video trailer didn’t show much of anything but from what was shown the game has potential. Hopefully, it won’t have multiple copies of spider-man running around like what they did in Super Hero Squad Online. LOL
