Gazillion Entertainment today released Marvel Heroes, the highly anticipated free-to-play action-MMORPG set in the Marvel Universe. Created by David Brevik, the visionary behind Diablo and Diablo II, Marvel Heroes lets gamers suit up as their favorite Marvel Super Heroes, including Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Hulk, Captain America and Spider-Man, as they battle through an extensive original story crafted by Marvel super-scribe Brian Michael Bendis. Marvel Heroes is now available* worldwide as a free digital download for PCs at www.marvelheroes.com.
“For over three years we’ve been building Marvel Heroes to be an exciting, free-to-play massively multiplayer action game, and we are ecstatic to finally put it in the hands of Marvel fans and gamers alike,” said David Brevik, President and COO of Gazillion Entertainment. “The creation of Marvel Heroes has been a labor of love. As a die-hard Marvel fan, it’s an honor to give players the chance to take on the roles of their favorite Marvel Super Hero in an epic adventure.”
At launch, Marvel Heroes will feature 21 Super Heroes, each with unique and extensive leveling systems, power trees and equipment. Players can choose to wear costumes from over 70 years of Marvel history, including costumes from Marvel’s recent theatrical blockbusters Marvel’s The Avengers and Iron Man 3. At any time, players can swap between their favorite Marvel Super Heroes on the fly. Set across diverse locations from the Marvel Universe, Marvel Heroes offers fast-paced, action-packed gameplay with a robust crafting system, intense player-versus-player (PvP) combat, End Game, and much more.
Gazillion will be frequently releasing updates to add new content to the free-to-play experience, including additional story missions, new playable Marvel Super Heroes, end-game content and much more.

Marvel Heroes is available now on PC and is currently in development for Mac.
This game is really solid for a F2P game. So far the only real issue I have had has been trying to move through an area that looks big enough to walk through but apparently isn’t. Like in between some civilians and crates. Other than that, I have had no glitches or problems.
