War Machine Arrives, Team-Up with Carnage, Cable Design Review, S.T.A.S.H. 2.0 and More!


Our 50th playable Hero James Rhodes - A.K.A. War Machine - joins the hero roster of Marvel Heroes 2015!

War Machine is a Physical damage hero with a plethora of melee & range options allowing you to dictate the rules of engagement. Like Iron Man, War Machine utilizes an advanced suit of armor based on StarkTech technology - but while they may look similar on the outside, War Machine's suit is custom-designed to live up to the name!


Carnage joins the Team-Up roster for Marvel Heroes 2015! Cletus Kasady’s run-in with an alien symbiote during a prison breakout changed his life forever, merging with the symbiote to become the agent of chaos now known as Carnage. Capable of forming the surface of the symbiote into all manner of deadly weapons to satisfy his appetite for destruction, one would be wise to exercise caution, though he is currently willing to work for the side of good… at least for now.


Cable's design review fleshes him out more and takes greater advantage of his background in the Marvel comics universe. He's no longer just a guy with a gun, but instead has viable ways to play him that take advantage of his psionic abilities and his lesser-known use of a psimitar. For more details about Cable’s Level 52 Review, head over to our Cable Level 52 preview forum post! He's also got a brand new costume just for this occasion, his Marvel NOW! costume is now available.


The STASH system has received an overhaul in this patch, with an updated user interface that gives you more customization and convenience. Any S.T.A.S.H. tab in the list can be clicked and dragged to a new position to reorganize the list however you see fit. General S.T.A.S.H. tabs can be edited with a custom name, icon, and background color so you can easily customize your STASH to suit your sorting preferences and much more.

S.H.I.E.L.D. Fortune Card

In celebration of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s 50th Anniversary, we’re introducing a brand new S.H.I.E.L.D. Fortune Card! This new fortune card includes some amazing new S.H.I.E.L.D. related exclusives such as the R.O.B. pet, as well as S.H.I.E.L.D. specific costumes for Hawkeye, Captain Marvel, a variant for Spider-Woman Team-Up, visual artifacts and more!


Some clever players solved our first Mystic Mystery achievement - which means the 63% XP, SIF and RIF bonuses from Mystic Mayhem are extended an additional 24 hours! This is in addition to the A.R.M.O.R Incursion event XP bonus listed below.


This week’s event is the A.R.M.O.R. Incursion! During the A.R.M.O.R. Incursion event a 100% XP bonus is active! This bonus is applied server-side and is further multiplied by other XP boosts you may have active. All the details about the A.R.M.O.R. Incursion event can be found in our A.R.M.O.R.

Full disclosure here, I've been in this game since alpha (through beta and launch) before it was even on Steam. I quit the game in early 2014 because it was a clustercluck of awful optimization, no end-game content, bland heroes and nonstop grind and I just couldn't take it anymore. The groundwork for a good game was there, and the developers were some of the coolest in the industry and they actually listened, but I just couldn't handle it anymore so I took a hiatus.

I came back in 2015 and I am SO GLAD that I did. I knew the developers listened to it's community so I had high hopes, but they absolutely shattered my expectations for the game. Their "52 reviews" (where they rework older characters to stay on par with newer characters) has added a ton of depth to the bland older heroes, end-game content is still a bit off but they've added raids and are constantly adding more end-game material to play around with so there's actually content now. They have daily login rewards and multiple events every month to reward their playerbase, and most importantly they still listen to their community. The best comparison I can think of for this company would be early Riot games, before they started focusing on the LCS and drifted away from their community and playerbase.

Anyways lets finish up this review, I was rambling a bit. Think of this game was a Diablo MMO that focuses more on playstyle diversity and playing a well-rounded roster of heroes than grinding out 1 character until he's a god.

Graphical fidelity is the weakest spot imo, it's really tough to see what's going on with so many flashy spells going on. You're basically forced to turn off the effects from other players, and even then on some heroes its nearly impossible to see what's going on. For example if you're playing Human Torch you literally light the entire ground in a giant blaze of fire and it becomes really hard to follow what's going on.

Early Game Content:
Early game content is very diverse, which makes leveling a breeze. Mondays you'll find yourself grinding out Midtown because every Monday they have an event where you get bonus loot and experience from Midtown, but they also have different types of challenge modes (never ending wave matches are one of the more popular, where each level you defeat increases the difficulty and rewards of the next level, and you go after floods of enemies until you die). Then there's also terminals and legendary quests which give upgraded rewards. Cannot complain about early game content at all.

Late Game Content:
It's not the best, but it's being actively worked on. Raids are really fun and require a lot of coordination to be pulled off if you're doing them in higher difficulties. I thought Raids would be really tough to pull off in this type of game but Gazillion did a great job. Late game is mediocre but improving.

The characters are great, they spend a lot of time making the playstyle of each hero feel fluid and accurate to their comic book counterparts. As of now there's more than 40 characters to choose from, with each one having variable costumes from their different comic book appearances. (The new Age of Ultron Hulkbuster costume, for example, is SO sick). There's still a few outdated heroes that need their 52 review, but they're coming up. In the next couple months we can expect Thing, Cable and Deadpool to all be updated and brought up to par with newer heroes. Not much else to say here, you can check out their roster online, you're pretty much guaranteed to find characters you like or would enjoy playing.

It's free to play, why would I talk about cost? Because this game is expensive if you want to play multiple characters. You get one starter hero for free and are able to unlock all heroes either by VERY RARE in game drops or by using an in-game currency known as Eternity Splinters to unlock them. The heroes go in tiers and cost either 200, 400, or 600 Splinters to unlock. Your login reward for your second day playing is 400 splinters so getting your first hero is an absolute breeze, but the drop rate for these is guaranteed and happens about once every 6-8 minutes, which means worst case it could take you from 26-53-80 hours of grinding to unlock 1 hero. Which is high, but it honestly does add up pretty quickly as time does seem to fly in this game. You'll want to use your 400 splinters from the login reward on your favorite hero, and then use the rest on random unlock tokens, which only cost 175 splinters and have an equal chance of giving you a 200, 400, or 600 splinter hero. not so bad.

If you like both Marvel and ARPGs (dungeon crawlers)? Absolutely download this game right now and get into it, you'll love it.

If you're impartial about Marvel but like ARPGs? You'll probably like this game, it's a fresh take on ARPGs and it's free, you should do yourself a favor and download the game and at least give it a shot.

Dislike Marvel but like ARPGs? You can ignore the IP and play the game, at least download it and give it a shot, as said above its a fresh take on ARPGs by the makers of Diablo 2, arguably the best ARPG of all-time.

Like Marvel but dislike ARPGs? I'd at least recommend trying it for 2 days, using your log-in reward on your favorite hero and giving it a shot that way, you may or may not get hooked.

Dislike Marvel and ARPGs? You can probably avoid this game altogether, but downloading it and giving it a shot is free and couldn't hurt.

Chances are if you've played it before and quit because you didn't like the state of the game it's probably much better than when you left, the devs listen and the game is constantly improving. Highly recommend at least giving it a shot.

It's been a couple of months since I posted this review and decided to do an update.

I played this game back in beta and I couldn't really get into it but they revamped the game last year and apparently made it much better, so i decided to give it another shot. What a great decision that was! The game's a hell of a lot more fun than the first time I tried it.

If you don't know what Marvel Heroes is, Marvel Heroes is free-to-play, dungeon crawling action-rpg with a cash shop that features non-stop action, fun, and of course LOOT. If you're familiar with Diablo or Torchlight you'd be familiar with the type of gameplay Marvel Heroes has to offer. If you never played either of those games, but you're familiar with a little game called Marvel Ultimate Alliance, you may enjoy this.

Before, when you created a new account, you were only able to choose a starter character from a given list that included: Captain America, Black Panther, Punisher, Black Widow, Luke Cage, Human Torch, Colossus, Cyclops, Storm, Hawkeye, Rocket Racoon, and DareDevil.

The developers changed that and now you can play ANY of the currently released heroes up until level 10 and with a new account, you can unlock any one of these as a starter. The only exception would be the newly released hero of the month. You will have to either buy the newest hero from the cash shop or from the NPC that sells characters for in-game currency/tokens called Eternity Splinters.

As mentioned, there's a cash shop in this game since its free-to-play. You'll find characters, costumes, team-up characters (characters that fight alongside your character), and items such as XP boosts, rarity boosts, pets, and random item boxes in the shop. The characters and team-up characters found in the cash shop can also be earned in-game by collecting a token that drops off mobs about every 8 minutes called an "Eternity Splinter." These let you buy characters from the Eternity NPC for different amounts.

A worthwhile note: You receive 400 Eternity Splinters as a day 2 login reward.

Some characters (like The Thing, Scarlet Witch, Black Widow, X-23, Hawkeye for example) will cost you about 200 Splinters. These same characters cost about $5 in the cash shop. Most characters however, can be bought for 400 Spinters, which costs around $9 if you buy from the cash shop. Some characters like Iron Man, Spider-Man, Rogue, Doctor Doom, just to name a few, will cost you quite a bit. They can be bought for either 600 Splinters or ~$13 in the cash shop. If you're feeling lucky, you can try your luck with a Free Hero Box that costs you 175 Splinters. These let you have a chance at a random hero unlock that can get you one of the more expensive heroes, including newly released ones!

The cash shop isn't the main attraction for this game. You can save yourself some cash on shiny new characters or costumes if you wait for sales (which come pretty frequently). The summer sale for example, saw a 50% discount on a lot of stuff. So it's sometimes better to wait, or earn things yourself.

Gameplay is the main attraction here and it's very fast paced and extremely FUN. Each character plays differently and with the amount of characters, it feels like there's over 50+ different classes. Some are debuffers/support, others are DPS or tanks. Some of the newer characters work better than the older ones but Gazillion is doing updates every month to older characters. Even after hitting the level 60 level cap, you're going to get sucked into going after loot, and boy is there a lot of loot. Until then, there's plenty to do before hitting the cap.

Players can participate in a variety of game modes including: story mode, patrols (Midtown and Industry City), Terminals, One Shots, X-Defense (group survival mode), Holosim (single player or two player survival), Age of Ultron, raids (Currently 3 raids), and Player vs. Player (have yet to try PvP).

At level 60, the Cosmic level difficulty unlocks for both Patrols and Terminals. This difficulty mode is basically for the hardcore player becuse it offers a greater amount of challenge but also best opportunity for loot. Also at level 60, you can join in on a 10 man raid and take part in some of the endgame content that the game has to offer. Currently, there are three raids and each one scales up in difficulty, so in order to do the next, you'll have to work hard on getting the necessary gear.

If you happen to like a character a lot, you can prestige them, which restarts your character at level 1. This gives you a fancy new chat color (not that great) and the ability to buy a new pet, which can be used to gain bonus stats for your character. Prestiging doesn't add any bonus stats so you don't have to do it if you don't want to.

The support for this game is tremendous. Gazillion really cares and they listen to their players when it comes to new content. There's always suggestions for costumes or characters that Gazillion considers making for the game. The support services are also fantastic. I bought a character and the very same went on sale a couple of days later, submitted a ticket and they refunded me the difference! They have a 7 day price guarantee. You don't see that EVER on a f2p game with a cash shop. You know what else you don't see a lot of on a f2p game? A good community, and this game really has a great one.

If you like Diablo or Ultimate Alliance, give this game a try. It's free, so the only thing you'd miss out on is time. Watch out for your wallet if you become addicted though!

On paper, Marvel Heroes was full of potential: a strong and important license of a prestigious name, could be the ultimate game for fans of the House of Ideas. And all in all it is a product quite funny, if taken in the right spirit and treated lightly. Find a profound experience, competitive and long-lived, however, he will be disappointed, and will have to prepare to have a lot of patience and a lot of money: microtransactions loom over virtually every content and the developer has imposed limits to fruition with an insistence annoyingly strategic. If it does not scare you, and you just want to play the main campaign and forget about it, the fact that it is completely free is a considerable incentive.
