Marvel Heroes to start selling limited edition costumes

One of Marvel Heroes’ big money makers is the game’s sale of iconic costumes for player heroes. In addition to creating and selling normal costumes, Marvel Heroes will begin rolling out limited edition costume variants this Saturday.

The first batch includes three costumes: Winter Soldier Movie (Maskless Variant), Hawkeye Hawkguy (Sweatpants Variant), and Star-Lord Movie (Headphones Variant). As the “limited” implies, there will only be a certain number of these on sale, and once they are sold out, they will be gone forever. Each costume comes with a special power (to display the limited edition seal), an emote, and a title.

The forums have been awash with heated debate over whether or not this is a good idea, with the topic pushing to 96 pages thus far. Will artificial scarcity plus sweatpants equal big profits for Marvel Heroes? Stay tuned and see.

Update: Gazillion announced that the costume variants will no longer be limited editions, but will be sold for a limited time (two weeks) with a price matching guarantee if it ever reappears in the store.

Estranged KenAddeh eLdritchMD Litterally how I play. Jump in, play a mission or two, then log off. I can only handle it in short bursts for the time being but It’s cool.

Give it a try, and hey, if you don’t like it you can just hop out and try a different game.

Just wondering who couldn’t wait to get their hands on these.

Estranged eLdritchMD It’s actually quite fun. I was on the fence as well after playing it for some time. Recently got back into it and I’m enjoying it.
I’d not played Diablo but I’ve played a whole lot of diablo-likes. I feel this is more like Torchlight a lot less taxing and mind-boggling than something like Path of Exile.

What is going on here? A studio taking feedback and adjusting appropriately to suit the player base?

By GAWD something is wrong here. Are they deaded?

Narayan eLdritchMD yeah 1500 seems very low for a video game. Still think it’s a weird issue to campaign over.

Midgetsnowman Narayan eLdritchMD those two things are nothing alike though.. the hero thing impacts gameplay for starters.

Estranged well, do you like marvel comics? do you like Diablo3?

that’s pretty much exactly what the game is… only big differences is that there’s always other people around and that you can swap between different super heroes more easily.
