Gazillion Entertainment announced today at PAX East that the highly anticipated free-to-play massively multiplayer online (MMO) actionRPG, Marvel Heroes, will launch around the world on June 4, 2013. Players who have purchased Founders Packs as part of the Marvel Heroes Founders Program will receive early access to the game up to seven days early, beginning on May 28, 2013.
David Brevik, President and Chief Operating Officer, Gazillion Entertainment said:
“When we started working on Marvel Heroes we knew exactly what we wanted to make – an unrivaled multiplayer free-to-play action-RPG experience that allowed gamers and comic fans to play as their favorite Super Heroes. This is an incredibly exciting day for all of us at Gazillion and we can’t wait to let gamers experience the Marvel Heroes world and our fresh take on the massively multiplayer online genre.”
In Marvel Heroes, players can take the role of Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America and many more as they team up to stop Doctor Doom from devastating the world with the power of the Cosmic Cube.
Marvel Heroes is said to feature a deep leveling system unique to each Super Hero, diverse locations set across the expansive Marvel Universe, a robust crafting system, action-packed player-versus-player (PvP) and much more. We should note that the game is created by David Brevik, the man who was behind Diablo and Diablo 2.
Marvel Heroes will be available on June 4th as a free download for PC and will be available for Mac OS post-launch.
