The highly anticipated Marvel Heroes MMORPG now has an official release date along with a brand new trailer featuring several of the game’s villains. Due to arrive on June 4, the upcoming game from Gazillion Entertainment is the sister title to Marvel Super Hero Squad Online. The game will allow fans to take control of their favorite Marvel superheroes as they attempt to foil the plans of Doctor Doom and his cronies, including Doctor Octopus, Sabretooth, Venom, Green Goblin, Electro, Rhino Blob, Pyro, Magneto, Bullseye, Kingpin, Elektra, MODOK and more.
The gameplay has been described as being very similar to Diablo and Diablo II, both of which were spearheaded by David Brevik, the creator behind both titles and the current president of Gazillion Entertainment. “Marvel Heroes represents the combination of Marvel IP with all of the knowledge and experience I gained creating Diablo,” Brevik has stated about the game.
The Cosmic Cube is a device of untold power capable of changing the very fabric of reality at the whim of its possessor. The brilliant but malevolent Dr. Doom has the Cube, and with it he aims to reshape the world in his own image. Determined to succeed where the Cube’s previous wielders have failed, Doom has lined up villainous allies to prevent the super-heroes from interfering. Can you unravel Doctor Doom’s sinister plan and stop him before it’s too late?
Those who purchased the Ultimate Pack for the game will be able to receive early access to the game beginning on March 28, while Premium and Starter Pack customers will be able to access the title four days (Premium) and two days (Starter Pack) earlier.
