Gazillion has announced that its action-RPG Marvel Heroes will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year under the name Marvel Heroes Omega.
“On behalf of everyone at Gazillion, I’m excited to share news that we’re bringing Marvel Heroes Omega to PS4 this spring,” community manager David Lee wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “So what is Marvel Heroes Omega? Marvel Heroes Omega doesn’t really fall into typical genre categories. It draws inspiration from both action-RPGs and MMOs, making it a truly unique blend of non-stop action and near limitless progression!”
The console version of the game will have less content than the currently available PC release with just 38 heroes available at launch, including Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Storm, Deadpool, and more.
“By narrowing our focus and scope, the Marvel Heroes team can ensure the best possible experience on console at launch,” the developer explained in a Q&A. “Don’t worry, we plan regular additions and updates!”
The PlayStation 4 version of the game will be available this spring, but Xbox One owners will have to wait until later in year. According to the developer, this is due to the size of the studio and allows the team to “deliver the best possible experience for players on both platforms.”
Players who wish to access the game before its official launch can pick up any one of the game’s Founder’s Packs, which also include Daredevil as a free hero. PlayStation Plus subscribers also get a free “Man Without Fear” costume for Daredevil, discounts on in-game currency purchases, and other limited-time exclusive access to select Heroes.
