Marvel Heroes: Big Numbers, Big Update, Big News

Gazillion Entertainment made a trio of announcements at this week's San Diego Comicon. According to the team, over 1.5 million users have registered to play Marvel Heroes Online. In addition, the first major patch/update will hit live service at the end of July. Lastly, the "Asgard" zone will be added to the game in early 2014.

Marvel Heroes Patch 1.11 is the beginning of a series of game updates this summer which will introduce:

  • End Game Additions - New Player versus Player (PvP) and End Game modes will give players an alternate way to experience Marvel Heroes after they defeat Doctor Doom

  • Eternity Splinters - A new currency that will offer an alternate method to earn playable Heroes through gameplay

  • Ultimate Updates - A new tier of powerful “Ultimate” items than enhance Heroes’ Ultimate Powers

  • Human Torch – Players will be able to suit up as the Human Torch for the first time

Read more plans for the game on the Marvel Heroes Online site.

    Hmmm.. kinda misleading. That quote makes it sound like all those changes are already in the game at first glance or are coming in patch 1.11. They aren't.

    That is an old advertisement video :P


    The game is entertaining.  But after beating Doom, I have no interest in PvPing, and it isn't like I can redo the maps on a harder setting.  So endgame is kind of... meh at this moment in time.


    But it is fun at the start.

    Registered users means nothing. I've registered, played for a few hours and, uninstalled. But they count me too in this unrealistic, inflated and commercial number.

    They added similar things on Super Hero Squad Online already.  

    If they intend to use the same method then the Eternity Splinters will cause nothing but massive pointless grind and Ultimate Updates will just be a quick pay to win method to boost your hero's stats at max level.

    I have an entitlement delusion - because I have this strange idea that my 50$ should have the same value as anyone else's 50$
    "Your account is not entitled to the same value as a new account. Just saying you are entitled to the same as someone else because you said so is exactly what expresses your entitlement issues."

    "Registered users" means zero.

    Anyway, I tend to find that when a F2P game starts boasting its "registered users" or "total accounts," the game has little else to market for that sales pitch.  Stating registered user numbers for a free game is as pointless as McDonald's putting "Billions Served" on the sign.
