The lights are on
The free-to-play comic book MMO now has a release date, and
a new trailer shows off some of the game's villains.
The game is set to go live on June 4, but those who purchase
packs of in-game characters will be able to get early access to the game. While
you can eventually unlock all characters through play, Marvel Heroes is selling
three tiers of packs of characters, each offering a different level of early
access to the game.
Starter Packs ($19.99) offer your choice of one character,
two costumes, $15 dollars of in-game currency and two days of early access to
the game. There are nine premium packs ($59.99 each) that include four
characters, $55 of in-game currency, and four days of early access. The
Ultimate Pack ($199.99) nabs you every character in the game, $50 of in-game
currency, and seven days of early access. You can order these packs on the Marvel
Heroes presale site.

Sweet I'll be playing this
Might check it out. Looks pretty solid.
TOO much money for all this EARLY stuff. it looks nice but i'll be getting DC GODS'
Been waiting so long for this.
Doctor Doom! Finally!
i needs parts goin in as spidy
I was pretty underwhelmed by DC Universe, but this still looks okay. Free to play, huh? That might warrant giving it a shot.
cannot wait to get my hands on the game. Bring it on.
The only MMO I have played in my time is Star Wars: The Old Republic, but this is one MMO I'll be happy to add in my collection. And as a plus, I'm a Marvel fan, so I think I'm going to enjoy this one.
As long as I get to play as Wolverine from the get-go I'll be happy.
Interesting, but not too exciting.
