Marvel Heroes Unleashed

Gazillion Entertainment, publisher of the highly-anticipated massive online action RPG, Marvel Heroes, took the recent New York Comic Con by storm, unveiling three all-new playable heroes from the legendary Marvel Universe: Jean Grey, Nova and Luke Cage.

These iconic Super Heroes join the roster of over 25 announced playable Marvel characters that gamers collect and deploy, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Wolverine (but not, as yet, Captain Britain... come on guys!)

Marvel Heroes also showed over 40 minutes of never-before-seen gameplay at New York Comic Con, giving press and consumers an action-packed hands-on experience as they battled villains like the Green Goblin, Electro and the Shocker.

Marvel Heroes, which features an original story crafted by Brian Michael Bendis, is a free-to-play, action MMORPG game created by David Brevik, the visionary behind Diablo and Diablo 2. Set in the heralded Marvel Universe, Marvel Heroes combines the core gameplay style of action RPGs and MMOs with the expansive library of heroes from the Marvel Universe.

In the game, players can collect and play as their favourite Marvel Super Heroes as they team up with friends to try to stop Doctor Doom from devastating the world with the power of the Cosmic Cube.
