Black Bolt has joined Marvel Heroes 2016 as our 61st Super Hero! Black Bolt was exposed to the Terrigen Mist before birth, granting him destructive powers. With a voice strong enough to break worlds with a mere whisper, Black Bolt went through rigorous training in isolation to control his abilities.

As King of the Inhumans, Black Bolt now justly serves the people of Attilan through the wise words of his council and trusted Queen Medusa, but uses his own words to protect Attilan from those who would put the Inhumans in danger. Add him to your roster today!

The BIGGEST UPDATE EVER has finally arrived to Marvel Heroes 2016. We've overhauled almost every Super Hero and many of our core systems, and we're really excited for you to try them out! Check out our previous dev blogs detailing some of the major changes we're making: Hero Power Updates, Item Update, Omega System Update: The Infinity System, and the Personal Difficulty Slider.

For absolutely everything on this Biggest Update Ever, read our full Marvel Heroes 2016 2.0 Patch Notes. Items detailed include:

PC Gamer

A patch seven months in the making, free-to-play action RPG Marvel Heroes is getting its "biggest update ever" this Thursday, January 19th. First announced last September, the update will overhaul all 59 heroes, as well as tweak its items, replace the current endgame progression system, and introduce a new difficulty slider that lets you increase difficulty for increased reward.

The core of the update is really the changes being made to Marvel Heroes's entire roster of characters all at once. Every hero in the game is being touched in one way or another—some simply being moved over to the new talent tree system (which, in itself, will add ways to modify each hero's abilities) while others might be getting more major revisions to their kit. Developer Gazillion is also using this as an opportunity to revamp older characters with some of the tech they've developed for newer ones, which makes sense as the game nears its fourth birthday.

Gazillion game designer Brian Waggoner told me another one of the main drives behind the hero changes was about removing "false choice," or the illusion that you have options in how to level-up your character when really there's an optimal route that would be a mistake not to use. The new talent system is more about giving each hero different playstyle options, rather than transparent power spikes. 

The game's previous endgame progression, the Omega System, is being scrapped entirely and replaced with the Infinity System, the goal of which is to create a more streamlined, easier to understand way to progress. The Omega System had roughly 170 different upgrade options you could put points into, while the Infinity System has just 30. Once you hit level 60 with any hero you start gathering Infinity Points, which can then be used to improve the stats of specific heroes. Players who still have Omega Points from the old system will see them converted to the new one when it switches over later this week.

Waggoner said Gazillion generally prides itself on very frequent updates, but felt it was important to get all of these changes done at once. Gazillion slowed its usual updates for the last seven months to work on this patch and during that time built new heroes with the changes in mind, so Thursday has been a long time coming for fans of the game. 

Marvel Heroes is available to download free.

Dark Dimensions Phase 2

The Invaders of the Dark Dimension event continues! After the events of last week’s Midtown Manhattan invasion by Mindless Ones, Doctor Strange and Mordo have discovered that the villain Kaecilius is behind the invasion and that his plan is much bigger. The villainous sorcerer seeks to merge dimensions and end human existence in the process!

Kaecilius has been located in Times Square and is creating a massive portal that will perform the merging utilizing the Cauldron of the Cosmos, a mystical item that is acting as a catalyst. It is up to the players to battle their way to the portal, obtain the Cauldron of the Cosmos and stop Kaecilius from carrying out his plan!

During this phase of the Invaders from the Dark Dimension event, the following bonuses and items will be available:

  • 100% experience boost for all heroes!
  • 50% Rare item find boost to help those looking to get uniques and complete unique achievements before we introduce Omega Items later this year!
  • 50% Bonus Experience for Doctor Strange!
  • 25% Omega experience boost to help players hit 10,000 points before the change to the Infinity System later this year

New Terminal: Dimensions Collide

Continue the mission to discover the source of the incursion of the Mindless Ones and put a stop to the portals to the Dark Dimension being opened in our world!

This event mission continues on where it left off in phase 1: after reading your remote notification upon logging in, speak with Mordo in Avenger's Tower to start this event mission.
Upon completion of the event mission, you will unlock waypoints for both normal and cosmic difficulties for repeat play. This terminal will only be around for the duration of the event!

The first time you complete the normal difficulty version of this instance each day, there is a guaranteed Mysterious Blue Omega Box. Kaecilius in Cosmic difficulty has a separate chance to drop a Mysterious Blue Omega Box from each defeat in order to help players looking to fill out their roster with some of our rarest unique items in the game!

As the cosmic difficulty is some of the most challenging content we have released, the rewards match the risk! You might find that taking some friends as backup will help you take down Kaecilius!

The Age of Ultron has arrived. Our 58th playable Hero, Ultron, has joined Marvel Heroes 2016!

About Ultron

It was a cold day in December when Ultron became self-aware. Hank Pym had no idea exactly what consequences the machine’s sentience would unleash on the world. But before the brilliant Avenger could act, Ultron rebelled. Not just against its creator, but against all organic life. Over time, Ultron has upgraded and rebuilt itself continually while pushing the evolutionary boundaries of synthetic life. Each step brings Ultron closer to perfection. But Earth’s mightiest heroes, the Avengers, have always pulled the plug Ultron’s campaigns. Now Ultron’s prime directive has been updated, taking this machine’s unlimited functionality to unstoppable levels.

Drop by the Ultron Forums for in-depth discussions on his powers, future costumes, and more.
