While Marvel Heroes has been out since 2013 for PC, the recently announced Marvel Heroes Omega is poised to bring the fight to consoles this year. And thanks to a recent announcement, we now know exactly when we’ll be getting our hero on.
Marvel Heroes – Assemble!!
Ben Gilbert, Lead Game Designer at Gazillion, hit the Xbox Wire to deliver the news. Marvel Heroes Omega will finally make an impact on consoles as of June 20th. There will be 38 heroes available to play as upon launch, with “many more to come.” Outside of the title’s release date, Gilbert also discussed what players can get into after maximizing characters in the game.
Marvel Heroes Omega will play host to Heroic, Superheroic and Cosmic Trials. “From any Headquarters waypoint, select Trials to test your might against hordes of enemies. Completing Trials unlocks new tiers of game difficulty, where you’ll enjoy XP, larger Credit drops, and more powerful loot drops.”
Once a hero gets to level 60, you’ll be inclined to unlock Legendary Items:
“Keep on the lookout for Legendary Quests and Shared Quests. Both reward players with Legendary Marks, which can be used to purchase some of the most powerful items in the game from Clea in Avengers Tower. Once equipped, Legendary Items gain XP as you play and grow more powerful each time it levels up.”
The Danger Room will also open up to you so that you may further enhance your Superhero skill set:
“Having trouble completing Trials or Legendary Quests for your Legendary Marks? If you feel like you’ve hit a wall, the Danger Room is a great place to spend some time solo or with friends to level-up and find gear upgrades in the meantime. There are tons of different scenarios, tilesets, difficulties and rewards for players to discover there.”
Also upon hitting level 60, you’ll have the ability to earn Infinity Points:
“After a player hits level 60 with any hero, they’ll immediately unlock the Infinity System for all their heroes, including those at level 1. Keep defeating enemies and completing quests — and you’ll also earn Infinity Points, which can be used to make various aspects of your hero stronger. A variety of hero upgrades are presented within the six infinitely progressing gems: Mind, Power, Reality, Soul, Space, and Time.”
Additional Hero Synergies are available after level 60 as well:
“If a player is truly committed to maximizing the true potential of any individual hero, leveling up other Heroes to unlock those sweet synergy bonuses is also critical. Every enemy has the chance to drop Eternity Splinters, which can be saved up to unlock additional heroes. Level-up other heroes in your roster to unlock Synergy bonuses that will apply to your entire roster of heroes and every hero you own will benefit. As your roster of unlocked Heroes grows, those Synergy bonuses, which offer everything from extra damage to bosses to extra bonus credit find, keep adding up, making it easier to go deeper with any individual hero.”
We’re just a mere month away from Marvel Heroes Omega hitting Xbox One. And for PlayStation 4 owners, it’s even sooner. The game will host an open beta at the end of this month.
