Marvel Heroes opens up Carnage PC preorders

In our newsroom, I had this article listed as just “Marvel Carnage,” and I suspect that led other writers to avoid it — what drama could it possibly be now? But in fact, this is the good kind of Carnage — the playable kind.

“Carnage is coming to PC soon,” the Marvel Heroes team has announced. “Pre-order him today, and get 10% off his Hero Pack! His Hero Pack includes both his first costumes (Carnage Classic [Default Costume] and Carnage Spider-Carnage (ENHANCED) at a discount!”

“Homicidal maniac Cletus Kasady was serving out his life sentence in prison when a new cellmate moved in, Eddie Brock aka Venom. In the midst of a jailbreak, the Venom symbiote spawned an offspring that bonded to Cletus, creating a symbiote that was stronger and deadlier than either Spider-Man or Venom. Known for cutting brutal and bloody swaths throughout the country he has more than earned the name: Carnage! Inverted by the events of Axis, Carnage appears to be acting heroic… kind of. Still prone to his violent tendencies, Carnage now fights on the side of the heroes, hacking up any bad guys who cross his path.”

Maybe that’ll take the sting out of the rebrand that came with no associated update?

I played around with this dude on the test server, and he is FUN. :) I’m not a particular fan but I ordered him anyway, such a nice surprise after the disappointment of Nick Fury. His mechanics are really cool and he seems like he’ll be really interesting to build.

No Advanced Pack no purchase.

I have to admit I’m geeking out a little at seeing the Carnage bonded with Ben Reilly costume from 1996. Such memories. I still remember you Ben Reilly!

Is his voice going to be less obnoxious than his teamup? Because if not, I’ll not only be avoiding buying this character, but probably avoiding the game for a few weeks until people have stopped playing him.

I looked up some videos from the test center and, as expected, it seems to be the same annoying voice. The Spider-Carnage one seems tolerable, though, so we’ll see. He at least looks fun to play!

This character makes ZERO sense… And despite his inappropriateness.. (its a word now lol) There are SO MANY other actual HEROES people have been calling for, for SO LONG.. why they ignored all those in order to do Carnage is a brain fart that makes no sense, it just stinks :)

because carnage is practically a venom/spider-man rip off, so they have to do less work to make him. and he already was a team-up.

I daresay the fact they already had his model due to the Carnage TU played a large part in it yeah.

But even so there are SO MANY other characters, actual heroes people have been calling for this was just a lazy nonsensical choice for Gazillion to make.

Not that they have given us much lately and don’t get me started on the changes they have made to the drop rates for the daily card rewards and the G store card drops (effectively their lockboxes) either (62 cards and only 3 rares, only one of which was a costume, they have DRAMATICALLY reduced drop rates for rares from those homecoming cards)..but thats a separate issue lol.

If we are going to have full on villains as playable then they need a villainous storyline of thier own otherwise they are utterly pointless.
