Gazillion Entertainment’s free-to-play PC action-RPG, Marvel Heroes is headed to both Xbox One and PlayStation this spring, the developer has announced. Sporting the new name of Marvel Heroes Omega, Gazillion’s community manager David Lee describes the title over on Sony’s PlayStation Blog as one that doesn’t belong to any typical genre categories, instead mixing together various elements from action-RPGs and MMOs to produce a “unique blend of non-stop action.”
Currently, it’s not entirely clear whether the console iterations will have any unique features not available in the PC version besides the new name, but Lee promises that there’s typically a very high chance that those who opt to give the game a go will be able to play as their favorite heroes come launch day. The various members that make up The Avengers, X-Men, The Defenders and Guardians of the Galaxy will all be playable, as too, will those that don’t belong to any one group, i.e. Spider-Man.
Lore hounds can also expect a treat by way of a nine-chapter story campaign spread across famous locations such as Hell’s Kitchen and Asgard, some of which will serve as the battleground for facing off against iconic villains, including Loki and Doctor Doom. Upon completing the story, Lee says a wealth of end-game content awaits those brave enough to meet the challenge, with “literally thousands of hours of replayability” on offer.
Gazillion has yet to provide a firm release date for Omega outside of the general spring window, although a closed beta is due to begin in the near future, with additional details forthcoming.
Marvel Heroes Omega is just one more avenue available to fans to explore its universe. Besides the ever-expanding film and TV universes, developer Square Enix is getting in on the action with its own series of titles, following the announcement of a partnership with Marvel earlier this year.
