I'm amazed there isn't a post about this game. It just went into closed beta a few months ago. It's head up by David Brevik formally of Blizzard North (good and bad given he worked on Hellgate as well). You can find the beta sign upshere.

Either way I'm somewhat excited. I distinctly remember playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance and thinking it would do well in a Diablo style setting with more loot. You can find the heroes listhere.

Main Concerns are

1) Will loot add a distinct look to characters, or will Wolverine always have the same set of claws?

2) Will they end up having enough costumes for people to look different then every other person that picked the same character?

3) Last but not least, will they have diverse skillsets that are all decently powerful? I know each character is going to have three trees, but I'm curious with 26 characters how much depth those skill trees will actually have.

Is this even a mmorpg?
Seems more like Diablo to me, which I wouldn't consider an MMO, but if you read their site it clearly states

Marvel Site_sl said:
Marvel Heroes is a free-to-play MMO Action RPG created by David Brevik, the visionary behind Diablo.

So you make your own unique character with name, stats, and look or do you play the marvel characters?

You lying bastard. "Marvel Heroes is a FREE-TO-PLAY action-packed massively multiplayer online game created by David Brevik, the visionary behind Diablo and Diablo 2." You added the RPG part. You are not on my level bro, just plug while you still can.

So I role play Wolverine? Sounds retarded and not an MMORPG, please move this thread out of MMORPG General. Also the info you posted differs from what I read when I clicked About the Game. Sounds like they dont have their shit together either.

It clearly states it's an MMO RPG on their website. Not sure why you're trying to troll him Traak.

Whether it truely is or not, we won't know until we play it.

Like I said, they describe it as an action mmo here and I guess an MMORPG somewhere else. Not my fault they dont have their shit together. Unless it is like DCUO and not super smash bros, it is not an mmorpg.

So what's got your panties in a twist? That they're calling it an MMO and it's in the MMO section?

Not sure if serious...

This game is diablo like yet diablo is in the non-mmorpg section. mmo != mmorpg.

I guess when a section is called MMORPG I assume it is about MMORPG. my bad.

Dude, I really don't care about which "forum" it's in. I just read the description and figured this would fit. I'm looking for some real discussion about the game. If I'm cluttering up all the chatter about EQNext and WoW 5.1283823239 then a mod should move it so that real discussion can continue.

Well from what I seen on the site looks pretty bad. I'd rather play DCUO then this.

in this game you play the Marvel characters themselves. It is very Diablo like from what I've seen. There is a story though. But I am not convinced its a full fledged MMORPG.

Samwise the whinnest poster on any board. We want to talk about games not bitch out what ever bullshit OCD problem you have.

That being said, The graphics look horrible but it has an interesting concept

Diablo, torchlight, path of exile, etc are not massively multiplayer.



They are calling it "massively", which implies persistent world of some kind.

From what I have seen of the game, there is no persistent world and this isn't an MMO in my book.

Ya I might have came off as being an ass but I wouldn't even call this a mmo let alone a mmorpg

Rock Paper Shotgun was invited to a press event to see the game and posted a review:

Marvel Heroes, in its current beta form, is dreadful. Let's be clear - it's not finished, there's no release date yet, and there's clearly lots of work yet to be done. But they invited the press to have a play of a very limited portion of the game so we could report on it. And it's currently a giant, dreary mess, a clash of woefully weak combat, and lacklustre delivery, so barren of ideas that I kept wondering if I was doing something wrong. Looking like it was made in 2002 (which is no mean feat with the Unreal Engine), and playing like it was made in 1986, this ARPG MMO feels like one of those '80s half-arsed movie tie-in arcade games that would be ported clumsily to home computer.
More here.
