With a panel at last week’s San Diego Comic Con and preparations for this week’s Ant-Man patch, Marvel Heroes has been quite busy talking about all of the changes and additions coming to the action-RPG.
Gazillion revealed that the next five heroes to be added to the game will be Ant-Man, War Machine, Kitty Pryde, Blade, Iron Fist, and Black Cat. The studio is also taking player votes on who will be Marvel Heroes’ 55th hero, although at the time of this writing it looks as though Magik is firmly in the lead. Plenty of new costume and team-up character looks were shown at the convention as well.
One of the big changes coming with this week’s Ant-Man update is a consolidation of the story mode into a single difficulty level that allows for faster leveling and easier grouping between players of different levels. Past that, Marvel Heroes is planning a sorting feature for its inventory storage, the debut of the danger room, a new secret invasion storyline, leaderboards, better visuals, and a revamp of the old limbo zone.
