The long wait is over, finally some details about the Marvel MMO have come to light. Called Marvel Heroes, the massively multiplayer online game is in active development by video game studio Gazillion. We spoke with Brian Michael Bendis about the project last year, as he’s on the creative team developing the game. Today, Gazillion released the below trailer along with some additional details:
- The game will feature Marvel characters ranging from the heavy hitters like Iron Man and Thor all the way down to Squirrel Girl.
- Players will be able to customize characters, drawing upon costumes from the characters histories in the comics as well as tweak powers so to make each character custom tailored to the player.
- Locations in the game will feature classic spots from the Marvel Universe, like Xavier’s in Westchester, The Savage Land, Hell’s Kitchen and of course the ever popular Midtown Manhattan.
In addition to Bendis, the creative team at Gazillion behind the game are led by David Brevik, the creator of Diablo and Diablo II.
