Marvel Heroes releases new skins for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Going to see Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 tomorrow? Marvel Heroes is taking advantage of cross-promotion love with a big Guardians of the Galaxy event and sale you may want to keep an eye on, and critically, all of it is available on PC.

Existing Guardians of the Galaxy-related characters, costumes, and team-ups are half off. There are brand-new new costumes for Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon too, but they’re not on sale for obvious reasons. PS4 players will indeed be able to pick up the new costumes in the Omega beta.

Everyone else can log in over the next week to take part in the Cosmic Chaos event and pick up login rewards (it’s a pair of new themed fortune cards). And if you’re actually playing the relevant toons?

“For the duration of the Cosmic Chaos event, both Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon will receive a 100% bonus XP! This bonus stacks with the 42% server-side XP bonus from the Cosmic Chaos event.”

Time to dust off my Star-Lord! Here’s a look at the skins:

Chris Pratt’s character looks a little off. :(

Geez I bet I could make an avatar that more resembles Pratt in GW2.

Sadly they aren’t allowed to use the images and/or voices of the actual actors of any of the Marvel franchises. So we get “versions”.

Very disappointed in how they are selling some of these.

Some you can only get them via their Fortune Cards (ie: lockboxes)

Means that you could spend 50 bucks, and still not get the skin you want.

Normally I dont have an issue with this method, except for when its time gated such as this event. Add to the fact that in the past, they have offered static “packs” that you could buy for a set price which gave you the skins you wanted (ie: the avengers pack back when that movie came out).

Agreed, this one pissed me off it screamed lockbox only. Its the first time they’ve done this and it left a very sour taste indeed.

Um am I to understand that CCP have purchased Gazillion and that they are turning it into a superhero themed Dust 514 knock off exclusive to the PS3 / PS4. Either that or your tags are drunk :p

Selling Baby Groot seems like it’d be almost too easy.

Yeah Groot is an easy sell for them. With the Groot sidekick and the different potted baby groot’s and how popular they were it is a clearly an easy sell.
