Gazillion Entertainment has announced that Marvel Heroes, the free-to-play action-orientated massively multiplayer online-role playing game (MMORPG) set in the Marvel Universe, has surpassed 1.5 million registered users since launching on 4th June, 2013. Gazillion has also revealed details on the first new zone “Asgard”, which will be released in autumn 2013.
Marvel Heroes features twenty one Super Heroes, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Hulk and Captain America. Each hero can be customised through unique and extensive levelling systems, power trees, equipment and a robust crafting system. At any time, players can swap between their favourite Marvel Super Heroes on the fly. Marvel Heroes’ first new zone, Asgard, will include new story content set in the realm of Thor and Loki; players will be able to take on new missions and adventures across the world of Asgard. New player versus enemy (PvE) areas will also be included, as well as new player versus player (PvP) modes and end-game content to challenge players.
“We are honoured by this incredible one and a half million registered user milestone and thank everyone who has played Marvel Heroes,” said David Brevik, CEO of Gazillion Entertainment. “As the Marvel Heroes community continues to grow and expand, we’re working hard to make the game play experience even better and add new content to the game. This is just the beginning for Marvel Heroes. We’re very excited about the future.”
No specific date has yet been announced for the Asgard update, though it’s likely to coincide with the forthcoming Thor: The Dark World motion-picture release. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Marvel Heroes and other titles from Gazillion Entertainment.
