It’s not the first MMO inspired by the marvel heroes, yet it catches our attention invariably – Marvel Heroes, an upcoming free-to-play MMORPG that presents “core gameplay elements of Diablo” in a specific marvel universe.

Marvel Heroes

The avengers gather in Marvel Heroes. For what? Here is the story: Victor Von Doom has got a device called the Cosmic Cube that possesses great power of changing the reality to the will of its owner. Predictably, Doctor Doom’s will is probably the least most people desired. And Doctor Doom has already gathered villainous allies for possible intervention of super heroes. Will super heroes save the world as usual at the last minute?

So Marvel a back story, isn’t it? And it’s only a beginning. The game is written by Brian Michael Bendis, super-scribe of superhero comics behind works of Ultimate Spider-Man, Secret Invasion and New Avengers, etc.. And in Marvel Heroes, players will enter a well-woven story, in which they collect and play as their favorite marvel super heroes, visit iconic locations from the Marvel universe (like the Mutant Town and Savage Land) and battle hordes of infamous super-villains and marvel enemies. Built on Unreal Engine 3, the game will render the universe in a stylish, comic-book manner and present impressive animations and visual effects.

Marvel Heroes is described as a game that fuses ARPG (action role-playing) with MMO. In-game collectable super heroes make a long list. As typical role-playing, characters can be highly customized with different costumes and built up with special spectacular powers of their own. As to action, it is said to style Diablo. Besides the fact that the president of Gazillion is the co-founder of Diablo-making studio, its developers just want to select a different route from the much trodden WoW clone.

Since it’s also an MMO, players can expect quests, dungeon crawls, item collection, loot drops, NPC vendors, public combat zones, randomly generated events and so on. It’s up to individuals whether they want to play solo or band together. But it’s an MMO made to defy the standard formula. It offers a list of quests to finish, but threads them within a story; this way, questing is less grinding, but more of a direction toward a higher goal to achieve. And the randomly generated environment is another striking feature that makes the game fresh every time players enter. Not only the instanced dungeons are randomized at different times, it’s so to the places for questing and public combat zones with changeable layout and ever-spawning enemies.

Release date for Marvel Heroes is to be confirmed. In fact, it’s unclear how far the beta testing is. Fans can only sneak a quick look at it via the newly released official teaser which reveals certain gameplay footage mixed with the back story.
