Worried that you'll hit a content wall in Marvel Heroes
and be unable to progress without taking out your wallet? Rest easy today, gentle player, for this is not to be. Gazillion
President David Brevik
said that he dislikes the vagaries of the free-to-play label
and assured players that Marvel Heroes
is going to be as up-front with its business model as possible.
"We aren't just a little bit free," Brevik said. "We're completely free. All the content is free and there are others things that you can buy to enhance your experience but they are completely optional. This isn't a nickel and dime experience we're creating."
Brevik admitted that the team had to take liberties with the Marvel IP to make it all work as an MMO but has faith that it will be received well by fans after the Avengers movie this past summer. Marvel Heroes
is currently accepting closed beta signups
