Marvel Heroes, MMO

Marvel Heroes, MMO

Postby steyn » Wed May 23, 2012 3:14 pm

So Marvel's coming out with an MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) game, called Marvel Heroes. Here's a link:
http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/170705-check-out-the-trailer-for-the-marvel-heroes-mmo

and the youtube of the same clip they show there in case that one doesn't work:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgMSNzQN8Hs

All i can say is FINALLY! I've been waiting for how long for something like this! I like this bit: "Drawing upon the 8,000-plus heroes and villains in the Marvel Universe, Marvel Heroes allows players to become their favorite Marvel Super Heroes – from the popular Iron Man, Thor, Storm and Black Widow to the lesser known Squirrel Girl and Cable."
I also like the UI of the thing, it looks like it's in the style of Diablo, which means you wouldn't need a fantastic connection to play it like you need for DC Universe Online.

More info can be found at hte wiki page, of all places:

From wiki:
"Marvel Heroes will be a free-to-play game and will not require a monthly subscription."
Amen to that, brother! I love games that you only have to pay for once.

I'll definitely be giving it a shot, though I hope the voice acting isn't too terrible. (Colossus in the teaser trailer made me think of the Heavy in TF2 :shifty )

It's pretty fun. I signed a non-disclosure agreement, so I can't... you know... disclose. But I will say it is definitely still being developed, ironing bugs out, etc. I have played as three characters. So far, it is pretty cool. But like I said, I have been pushing for Kurt non-stop. Alot of people on the forums feel the same way, along with adding Gambit and Beast.

I am taking a break from Marvel Heroes until Nightcrawler is made available. I can't spend al my time on a game that doesn't have the fuzzy elf, yet has Rocket Raccoon...

I just saw the Daredevil trailer of Marvel Heroes... and the action and animation looks a bit... stiff and awkward. I hope the gameplay is better than what it looks.

This all looks great but.... am I playing these characters? That'll get old fast. Not an original character? And even worse, how many other Nightcrawlers/Spider-Men are there going to be?

As a beta tester, I can say that I have teamed up with 2 Storms and 3 Hulks along with 2 other Deadpools when fightin a boss. Kinda confusing in such close quarters...

This is why i liked dc universe online's idea of making your own character. The actual game itself is a bit finicky, but thats because it is actually a console game. Meaning you dont get a better chat, there is no text bubbles and not even blam woosh crash kind of text visual effects. Just running and punching stuff.

So I have on good authority that Nightcrawler comes to the game next month. This source said that Gambit was coming out this month and they just premiered the character this week. I'm already playing more to get in-game currency to get Nightcrawler when he comes out.

<3, wish I had the game!


makes sense he would come into the game as he returns to the comics and is rated the FAVORITE X-MAN!
