Marvel Heroes Omega soft launches on PlayStation 4 today

Console geeks assemble! It’s time to throw off the shackles of responsibility, hygiene, and relationships to devote yourself to a straight week or two of non-stop superhero action. It’s OK. We’ll write a permission slip for you that you can give to any concerned parties.

Marvel Heroes Omega, the streamlined console version of the PC MMO, is soft launching today for PlayStation 4. Well, technically it’s an open beta, but since the studio has promised that progress will not be wiped going forward, we’re calling it like we see it. Also, the team is not above taking your money at this point, so it feels like a release to us.

“To celebrate today’s open beta launch for PlayStation 4, all players can also look forward to receiving Daredevil, the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, as a free playable character. To receive this gift, players must download and install Marvel Heroes Omega and download the free Daredevil pack via the PlayStation®Store on their PlayStation 4 console.”

Xbox One players are just going to have to do a Hulk sulk for a month and wait for their turn on June 20th. Meanwhile, PC players are twiddling their thumbs and waiting for next month’s anniversary event.

Marvel Heroes Omega early access opens today for PS4 players

It’s a big week for Marvel Heroes: Today marks the start of early access for the soft launch of Marvel Heroes Omega on PlayStation 4, which itself technically begins May 23rd, but if you want in now — with no more wipes — a founder pack (or a key you won from us!) will get you in today.

Earlier this week, Gazillion announced that its Xbox One-flavored game service will whirr to life on June 20th, so you folks have only one more month to wait.

PC players, I feel you right now, but there’s some good news on the horizon: a big A.R.M.O.R. incursion event plus a teaser for the anniversary, and it’s a good one:

Marvel Heroes Omega soft launches on PS4 next week, Xbox One June 20

Comic book adventure is coming to consoles next week. The reworked, revamped, and renamed Marvel Heroes Omega is kicking off its console open beta test on May 23rd.

Starting next Tuesday, PlayStation 4 players can check out the streamlined superhero MMO for free. If that’s not soon enough for you, you can always buy a founder’s pack and get into early access this Friday, May 19th. So what’s the big deal about open beta? As there will be no wipe following the start of this phase, all progression will be carried over into launch. In other words, think of it as a soft launch.

Xbox One players are still waiting to hear about when they might be invited to the party. PS4 players, try not to gloat. Updated below!

Leaderboard: What do you do with your stuff when you quit an MMORPG?

On today’s podcast, Justin teased me for running a virtual yard sale as I attempt to clean out my house in Ultima Online. I’m not quitting the game, mind you, but I did feel the urge to purge my hoard a bit to give myself some options, since right now, I’m obligated to sub every few months to hang on to that digital house lest I lose everything in it. If I were going to leave for a longer period of time, as I’ve done before, I’d need to get rid of most of my loot in a hurry and figure out whom to bequeath my house — if anyone.

Totally coincidentally, this morning I ran across a post on the Marvel Heroes sub whose author says he’s quitting and was looking for a “tasteful” way of giving away all his stuff.

Both incidents prompted me to wonder what other people do — does it depend on the game? What do you do with your stuff when you quit an MMORPG?

Marvel Heroes’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 promo video is live

What’s cuter than baby Groot?

Nothing. So why try, yeah?

Marvel Heroes’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 promo is now live, with the screens and video to prove it. The video is calling it “new content,” but as we covered earlier this week, it’s buyable skins, an event, and some admittedly nice sales on cash-shop items relating to the theme. The voice clips in the video are fun, however, and we’ve tucked it down below.

Champions Online’s new sale is a wink and a nod to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Marvel Heroes isn’t the only MMO taking advantage of the launch of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this weekend. Or maybe it’s May the Fourth that’s got Champions Online agog. I’m going with the former this time based on the look and the tease:

“Guardians! Your galaxy needs you! Having the right gear will ensure neither you, nor your favorite worlds, go boom. Get them now at 20% off! Dress the part, or get powered up. (Soundtracks sold separately!)”

There are plenty of sci-fi flavored costume parts and powers on sale through May 11th, plus Cryptic and PWE are running the Nightmare Invasion event, a Hideouts sale, and a sale on… ghost hair?

DC Universe Online, you’re next, right?
