Around two years ago, Gazillion Entertainment first announced the inception of a new MMO taking place within the Marvel Universe. Since then, very few details have leaked out about the project, until now. During a streamed conference on Marvel.com, the comics company revealed that Gazillion subsidiary Secret Identity Studio is nearing completion on the project, now known to be free-to-play at launch.
Also revealed was the hiring of “House of M” and “Ultimate Spider-Man” author Brian Michael Bendis will be the title’s Head Writer. Players will be able to take control of super-heroes already within Marvel canon, as opposed to creating their own, and face down Dr. Doom, who once again takes the role of ultimate bad-guy. The game will supposedly give a “grand, epic tour, a reimagining of some of the biggest events in Marvel history. ”
The yet unnamed Marvel Universe MMO currently has no release date.
