After what seems like years of teasing us with snazzy concept art and pre-purchase incentives, Marvel Heroes will be free-to-play from June 4th.
Those who are really desperate to play the game early can purchase one of 3 tiers of Founders Packs, which include one or several characters (though these can all be unlocked in-game), each with an alternate costume from Marvel’s
convoluted rich history:
- Starter Pack ($19.99) purchasers will receive 2 days of Early Access beginning on June 2nd.
- Premium Pack ($59.99 each) purchasers will receive 4 days of Early Access beginning on May 31st, as well as access to the closed beta.
- Ultimate Pack ($199.99) purchasers will receive 7 days of Early Access beginning on May 28th, and access to the beta.
Hats off to the gamer enthusiastic enough to invest $199.99 on an online game that they’ve yet to play. But I guess these options wouldn’t exist if there wasn’t a market for them.
Gazillion Entertainment has also released a villains trailer, which features the usual suspects: Venom, M.O.D.O.K., Kingpin, Electro, Sabertooth and the Sentinels are amongst the familiar foes that you’ll be defeating again and again… and again… and again…
