While we've had several occasions to check out Marvel Heroes'
journey through the beta process, Gazillion Entertainment
wanted us to know that our previous glimpses
are now obsolete. The makers of this superhero action-RPG have implemented a major beta update that has virtually transformed the look, feel, and function of the game.
We spoke with Gazillion
about the update, which clearly is a major step toward a finalized release version. The most obvious change to Marvel Heroes
is a revamp of its user interface. The UI has been streamlined and modernized, with a crisper look and more color overall. The placeholder minimap has been scrapped and replaced with a new radar that functions in perspective, a friends list is now in place, and new arrow icons float around the edges of your screen to direct you to nearby events. And since loot is quite vital to the appeal of the game, the devs made sure to color-code all of the icons so that telling item rarity is an instant and effortless process.
There are a few more surprises that were announced today, so hit the jump and we'll walk you through them!
