Marvel Heroes closes early as developers shut down

Gazillion Entertainment, the makers of Marvel Heroes, have shut down. This means the free-to-play superhero action-RPG has also shut down, one month earlier than it was supposed to. Disney, who own Marvel, had announced earlier this month that they were breaking up their partnership with Gazillion and so the game would shut down on December 31st. But losing their big gig meant that Gazillion needed…

Marvel Heroes could be shut down early as Gazillion lets go of most of its staff

Despite relaunches, countless updates, a massive roster of superheroes and villains, and its recent move to consoles, Marvel Heroes is being shut down. Disney and developers Gazillion had announced last week that they were dissolving their partnership, and that servers would go quiet on December 31. Today, only a couple of days before Thanksgiving, staff were "let go", and Marvel Heroes may now cease to…

Marvel Heroes will shut down at the end of the year

Superhero Diablo-like Marvel Heroes never really had much of a chance. A terribly rushed launch to try and capture as much superhero hype as possible backfired, leaving what could have been a successful game with a mammoth struggle just to find its footing and catch up. This summer's relaunch as Marvel Heroes Omega (coinciding with the launch of the console version) was the last nail in the…

T-Rexes Confirmed For Marvel Heroes! Also, Story

The Marvel universe's mastery of POWBIFFS, WHAMZOTTS, and SHAWARMASLAMS is well-documented, but devout fans obsess over its skin-tight shenanigans for far greater reasons than that. Admittedly, I'm not much of a comic book reader, so - based on a new story trailer for Gazillion's promising-looking Marvel Heroes MMO - I can only assume that reason is dinosaurs. Or maybe story, but that'd just be silly.…

Snikt And Smash: Marvel Heroes

When X-Men: The Last Stand crammed in all the mutants it made for a crowded frame and some of Marvel's most uncanny were rendered as little more than computer-generated blobs of colour. Free-to-play multiplayer online ARPG Marvel Heroes also appears to subscribe to the 'more actually can be more' philosophy, but hopefully to greater effect. The huge selection of characters could work in its favour,…

Hulk Bug Smash: Marvel Heroes Beta Sign-Ups Open

The more I see of Marvel Heroes, the more I dig what it's attempting. It's taking the Diablo formula into full-blown MMO territory (sans Diablo III's "is it, or isn't it?" waffling) and letting us loose in the Marvel universe without forcing us to knit our own totally-not-Wolverine costumes. We get to be all the heroes; we get to hack 'n' slash 'n' Hulk Smash all…

Dare To Be Deadpool: Marvel Heroes

Given that Marvel Heroes is going to have something like four hundred and fifty seven bajillion comic book characters, I certainly won't be posting a video for each and every one if that's how Gazillion Entertainment choose to market the game. Maybe I've got the number wrong anyhow. Maybe it's four hundred and fifty seven gazillion. Seeing as the Daredevil trailer shown at PAX has…

The Devil Wears Spandex: Marvel Heroes

Under normal circumstances, I would not be excited about a game called Marvel Heroes. I mean, I love Robert Downey Jr: A Movie About Robert Downey Jr Starring Robert Downey Jr (And The Avengers Sometimes) as much as anyone, but these licenses tend to be about as much fun as being bitten by a writhing mass of regular, non-radioactive spiders. Here, however, there is hope.…

Oh My: Marvel Heroes MMO Sounds Superb

Isn't this just like Marvel? DC puts the weight of an entire movie on one hero, and Marvel fires back with six (seven, if you count Hulk twice - which you should). Then DC shows off an excellent-looking Lego beat 'em up with 50 heroes, and Marvel rains on its superpowered parade with 8,000 of its own. That's Marvel Heroes in a nutshell. Actually, no it's…

Jumpgate Evolution Still Evolving

Just as memories of much-delayed space MMO Jumpgate Evolution were deleted by our brains to make room for voluminous Portal 2 hype, a trailer turns up. As is my habit, I've posted the thing below. It's a look at the warlike Octavius faction. And... it's a SHOUTY MAN TRAILER! Hooray! It's been a while since we had one of those. For some reason it doesn't…

Gobbets! Marvel Super Hero Squad

Cryptic's Marvel Universe Online project may have been cancelled (probably a good thing, given how uneven the one-time City of Heroes creators' recent output has been), but looks like we're getting a Marvel MMO nonetheless. It's developed by one Gazillion Entertainment and its, y'know, for kids. Super Hero Squad is based on the popular animated series for rugrats, so don't expect any Christopher Nolan grit…
