Marvel Heroes: First Official Trailer Released
The moment all you spandex wearing fans have been waiting for, Gazillion Entertainment have just released the first ever video footage for their upcoming MMORPG, Marvel Heroes. Marvel Heroes will give players the opportunity to play as any of the iconic characters from the worlds most popular super hero franchise, a franchise that has spawned dozens of games and almost as many successful movies.
Online games come in many different genres and the super hero genre is arguably one of the smallest available. Several titles have launched into the super hero genre such as Champions Online, City of Heroes and the recent DC Universe, and all are considered successful fantasy MMORPG games. All three of the biggest online super hero titles all launched as pay to play games, but one by one than made the transition to a free to play title. City of Heroes survived several years as a premium MMORPG before transferring to free to play, where as City of Heroes and Champions Online lasted a matter of months before making the change. This leads me to believe we can expect the same from Marvel Heroes, although the footage below makes it quite obvious that Gazillion Entertainment are bringing something new to the table.
So what do you think? Will Marvel Heroes have the arsenal to last as a premium MMO title or is it another super hero game we can expect to see join the free to play market?
