In beta for a while on the PlayStation, Marvel Heroes Omega is now live and in full retail form. Nab it on either PS4 or Xbox One.
Remember X-Men Legends? How about Marvel Ultimate Alliance? Well That’s basically Marvel Heroes Omega. More or less anyway, since MHO isn’t a boxed retail release, but is instead a free-to-play title. But don’t get freaked out by that, because it actually looks pretty awesome.
An aRPG smushed together with an MMO, MHO is a beast. It includes a beefy stable of Marvel superheroes for you to play as, including “including Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Avengers, the Defenders, the X-Men, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and more!” As impressive as it is, this is kind of the rub too, as additional heroes will cost you real-world cash.
Still though, it seems playable right out of the digital download, and there’s quite a bit to it. Marvel and Gazillion say that the game will offer “thousands of hours of character progression, over 100 costumes, and an ever-growing roster of playable heroes and rewards, Marvel Heroes Omega comes packed with tons of replay value and a steady stream of new challenges coming in regular updates.”
Sound good? You can grab the base download for free, right now on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
