So the Marvel Heroes MMO actually looks good

4:30 PM on 05.22.2012

Did you all forget Marvel was working on a free-to-play MMO? Yeah, it's been over a year since we last talked about the game but Gazillion Entertainment has finally come out of hiding to show off the first ever gameplay footage.

Marvel Heroes (formerly known as Marvel Universe) will be drawing from over 8,000 Marvel heroes and villains, allowing fans to become their favorite heroes, such as Iron Man, Thor, Cable and so much more. Players will be able to customize their characters costumes, abilities, and explore famous Marvel locations like the Savage Land.

The story is being written by Brian Michael Bendis, best known for his work on New Avengers, Secret Invasion and so much more. Plus you have David Brevik on the project, best known for his work on Diablo and Diablo II. Based on the trailer, it looks like the big bad of the story is Dr. Doom, who's just gotten his hands on the Cosmic Cube.

I have to say, I wasn't expecting the game to look so good and I'm definitely interested in learning more about it. Check out the official website to see all the revealed playable characters so far.
