Marvel Universe MMO?

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Apparently, there’s a Marvel MMO in the works. Who would have thought that after the failure of DC Universe Online, that Marvel Comics would attempt to do the same?

Well it’s true, and we now know a few details.

First, the game will be a completely free-to-play MMO that will most likely be powered by micro transactions.

Second, the main villain will be Doctor Doom.

Third, Brian Michael Bendis will be handling the writing for the game…so far this is the best news as BMB’s work is legendary.

Fourth, confirmed so far as playable characters are Captain America, Wolverine, Iron Man, Hulk, Spiderman, Thor, Nova, and of all people…Squirrel Girl. It doesn’t stop at these names though, apparently the development team behind the game boldly states that you will be able to pick any Marvel character from the comics. I call dibs on MODOK.

Finally, the game’s future on the console market will remain TBD until later, however we hear that the beta will be available sometime next Summer/Fall for the PC. I guess this means that you’ll just have to be patient awhile.

I don’t know about you all, but count me out for this game. Not only is it an MMO but it’s also a licensed product…two very bad things for projects like this. What about you all, what’s your opinion?
