Marvel Heroes Omega Heads to PS4 and Xbox One This Spring

Marvel Heroes Omega Heads to PS4 and Xbox One This Spring

Gazillion Entertainment's action RPG is heading to consoles this year.

Marvel and Gazillion Entertainment announced today that Marvel Heroes will be heading to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The console version will be called Marvel Heroes Omega. Marvel Heroes Omega will still be free-to-play on the console platforms, just like the PC release. There will be no cross-platform play between Marvel Heroes 2016 and Marvel Heroes Omega and no transfer of data between the two.

"If you've got a favorite Marvel Super Hero, there's a good chance you'll be able to play as him or her in Marvel Heroes Omega. It's got one of the largest rosters of playable Heroes that pulls from all corners of the Marvel Universe. Play as Spider-Man, the Avengers, the Defenders, the Inhumans, the X-Men, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and so many more!" wrote Gazillion community manager David Lee over on the official PlayStation blog.

Gazillion promises 38 heroes available at launch, including Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Storm, and Deadpool. That puts Omega below the current roster on the PC version. According to the developer, that's to ensure a smooth launch for the title.

"By narrowing our focus and scope, the Marvel Heroes team can ensure the best possible experience on console at launch. Don’t worry, we plan regular additions and updates!" said Gazillion in a FAQ for the game.

There is a PlayStation 4 closed beta for the game planned, and interested players can purchase any one of the Founder's Packs that will be launching on the PlayStation Store for closed beta access. All closed beta players will also receive Daredevil free. Near the end of the closed beta, the game will also be jumping over to PS4 Early Access. There are currently no details on the Xbox One closed beta, with Gazillion focusing on the PS4 launch first.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
