I've always wondered what some popular franchise would be like if they were to become an mmorpg. Besides Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, one title in particular I've imagined was the expansive world or Marvel Universe. If DC has done it with their DC Universe Online, so why can't Marvel? ...and Marvel did and they unveiled it in San Diego Comic-Con International.
When I first saw the gameplay stage demo video from gamespot, my initial impressions was this is just like that facebook (social network) game called Marvel Avengers Alliance except much more Diablo-like. Well (for me), it is good that it went to a development team lead by someone who have worked with Diablo I and II. Well the development team still have a long way to work wit on this Marvel MMO, hopefully they'll try to listen as to what both mmo fans and Marvel fans have in their mind.
I said earlier that Marvel has an expansive universe. This game is not simply a game featuring the Avengers, the X-Men, or solo popular Marvel icons but the whole universe itself, thus why being entitled with Marvel Heroes. Both the Marvel Heroes Dev Diary and Gamespot SDCC 2012 Demo gave us a big tease and sneak peek at what kind of mmo this is going to be like. It adapts to a newer forms of story-based mmo and will be presented both via motion comics and live in-game 3-D cut scenes. We also all know that free-to-play is not completely free, right? A game need resources to function and this is where costumes comes in. This is the main selling point to any mmorpg. Why run as an ordinary character looking like every Wolverines or Hulks in this Marvel MMO when you can simply pour in some extra money to purchase a Planet Hulk Costume or Scarlet Spider Costume with additional stat boosts? Also, the game holds a lot of promise as there have been hundreds, if not thousands of individual Marvel titles and heroes whose adventures have taken them to places. These places can be the expandable maps offered in one go or through monthly updates. Fans will feel right at home when the characters they control are running in the Savage Lands, Latveria, Hell's Kitchen, Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, Sinister's Lab, and many more. Marvel Heroes is definitely one promising free to play action mmorpg coming to PC this 2013.
