Before punching your way into the fray, you must make hard decisions while creating your character. The list of heroes you can choose from is not precisely small: Captain America, Daredevil, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Deadpool, Hulk, Thing, Human Torch, Scarlet Witch, Wolverine, Storm, Spiderman, Punisher, and Emma Frost are some of the over 25 different heroes you can choose from.
If the character cast isn’t enough, you can also find many different options to customize each one of them. You can use any of the many different costumes and outfits that have appeared throughout the history of the comics and movies.
Of course a superhero’s game wouldn’t be complete without super-villains, so Marvel Heroes has them as well. Kingpin, Green Goblin, Doctor Doom, Magneto, Grim Reaper, and Venom are just some of the faces you'll see as bosses throughout the game.
During your adventures, which you can face both alone and/or in company of other players (forming your own 'Avengers'), you'll go to some of the most iconic locations in the Marvel universe, such as the famous District X.
The game will not prove strange to players who have already played RPG games such as Diablo, Torchlight, Path of Exile, or any others. The main difference with these games is that the traditional gameplay shares prominence with Marvel's persistent world, allowing you to interact and or join forces with other players.
Marvel Heroes is a near perfect blend of MMO and RPG action. Marvel's charm adds the frosting to this fun online cake which is also, completely free.
