Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 inspires Marvel Heroes Omega

Posted on May 7, 2017

A new update for Marvel Heroes Omega is proving that powerful things come in small packages. Inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, new outfits have been created for both Star Lord and Rocket. Rocket’s costume in particular comes with updated abilities that summon Groot, the tiniest member of the Guardians (and yet by far the best!)

While work on new content for Marvel Heroes 2016 continues, Gazillion Entertainment is also excited by the response from players for the Marvel Heroes Omega closed beta on PlayStation 4. Players interested in securing immediate access to the closed beta can still select from a variety of Founder’s Packs on the official PlayStation Store to start playing today with a variety of in game perks. A progression wipe is scheduled for the end of the closed beta on May 16, so keep this in mind.

Aiming to deliver the ultimate experience for Marvel fans and gamers, Marvel Heroes Omega is set to assemble one of the largest in-game gatherings of iconic Super Heroes from the Marvel Universe. Featuring 38 playable Heroes at launch with many more to follow and hundreds of costumes inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, comics, television shows, and animated shows. Take on the role of your favourite characters, including Spider-Man, the Avengers, the Defenders, the Inhumans, the X-Men, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and more.

“When I first saw the PC version of Marvel Heroes years ago, I was blown away, but always felt it was a title that also belonged on the big screen in living rooms,” said David Von Dorman, CEO at Gazillion. “With so many massive improvements to nearly every aspect of the game, we’re beyond excited to be able to bring Marvel Heroes Omega to new audiences on the platforms it was always destined for.”

The story campaign is set to feature nine chapters packed full of cameos. Players race to stop Doctor Doom as they explore many corners of the Marvel Universe, from the crime ridden streets of Hell’s Kitchen to the mystical realm of Asgard. Completing the story campaign is just the first step in a player’s journey, as they face many late game challenges and modes to master, including the Danger Room, Terminal Missions, Legendary Quests, and more.

I’m loving the look of this game and the prospect of having a new superhero game to sink my teeth into. Stay tuned for more updates, or if you missed it, check out the launch trailer below.
