Marvel Heroes is a free-to-play MMO action RPG for the PC, created by David Brevik who created Diablo. After covering this title when it was at Comic-Con new details about the release are creating interest as release day draws ever closer.
With a projected Spring 2013 release, this MMO plans to allow players to acquire different playable heroes, costumes, and power-ups through looting items in-game. Players will start with their choice of five heroes initially to play, Daredevil, Storm, Thing, Scarlet Witch or Hawkeye.
Additionally, Gazillion Entertainment has now offered Founder’s packs in which players can purchase their choice of heroes and obtain other perks like early access to the game, experience and item find boosts, a new costume and for a limited time (through Jan. 23rd) double in-game currency allotments. With this currency, the player can purchase additional heroes, costumes, and boosts as they see fit when the game launches later this year.
The Founder packs are broken down as
