Marvel Heroes is a free-to-play MMO on the way from Gazillion, due out a little later this year. While you don't have to pay to play, the developers are offering you plenty of ways that you can, with today's big reveal of three Founders Packs that add chunks of extra stuff to the superhero release. How much can you pay for this "free" game? Up to US$199, should you be so inclined.
The three tiered Founders Packs contain limited-edition digital content - favourite heroes, unique costumes, early game access and a pile of in-game cash that can be used to buy even more stuff in Marvel Heroes.
So. What's on offer?
Our team is hard at work to make sure Marvel Heroes is true to hardcore players, Marvel fans and the most casual of gamers through deep, MMO action-RPG gameplay, an expansive interactive storyline and easy-to-play experience.
We’ve built Marvel Heroes from the ground up to be a free-to-play game where players can find and collect nearly every hero and costume in the game just by playing. The Founders Program gives players the opportunity to play as their favorite hero from the day we launch in addition to enough in-game currency to buy more heroes and costumes as we release new content.
Log in to Marvel Heroes to play among the Marvel Universe as any one of a number of iconic superheroes, "including Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America and many more." Of course, plenty of notorious supervillains will also be in the world - your task is to prevent Doctor Doom from destroying the world with the power of the Cosmic Cube.
