Destructoid attended the Gazillion press conference the other day where they revealed new details on their next MMO, Marvel Universe. While we have no clue as to what the game looks like, we do know it's taking on the free-to-play business model. Additionally, the MMO will let you play as actual Marvel characters as opposed to making up new heroes.

While they wouldn't go into specifics, we do know you'll be able to play as Wolverine, Captain America, Spider-Man and Squirrel Girl. As for the plot, know that Dr. Doom is the overall big bad and you'll be going through many different storylines spanning the entire Marvel history, such as Secret Invasion.

The big reveal at the press conference was that legendary comic book writer, Brian Michael Bendis, is the lead writer on Marvel Universe. Some of Bendis's work includes Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers, Secret Invasion and many more so I don't think we'll have too much to worry about when it comes to the story.

Marvel Universe has no current release date, but it's been confirmed for the PC and is being developed by Gazillion's in house development study, Secret Identity. Check back on Monday when we'll have a video interview with Brian Michael Bendis.

Surprise! Elder Scrolls Online is dropping the fee for existing subscribers, console version dated

When I reviewed The Elder Scrolls Online back at launch I thought it had potential, but not enough to keep people paying for subscription time. Plenty of MMOs have enjoyed a subscription-based model, and games like ...more

Blizzard's sending a seriously cool gift to World of Warcraft's ten-year subscribers

A decade is a decent stretch of time by any account, but it's an especially long time to routinely play an MMO. Blizzard wants to recognize the dedication of the select few players that have stuck by World of Warcraft si...more
