Marvel Heroes patches in Ant-Man, story consolidation

    
40

Go small or go home! That’s the mandate from Marvel Heroes today, as the action-RPG added its 49th hero, Ant-Man, to coincide with this weekend’s theatrical release.

Ant-Man not only uses his shrinking and growing abilities to lay waste to his foes, but can summon up to 10,000 insect buddies to do his bidding. One of his most visually arresting powers, Antnado, sends a cyclone of ants to chew up a swath of foes. Ant-Man can be equipped with a few different costumes, including the movie version, the Avengers Now outfit, and the classic Hank Pym look.

Today’s Patch 1.62 also made a significant change to the game’s story mode. Instead of featuring three difficulty levels, the story has been consolidated into a single path that now offers a full 1 to 60 leveling experience for characters.

RingofVoid Yeah I popped in for a bit last night and noticed how there’s a lot more stuff to do on the maps. But yeah with the bugs… the struggle is real. I’ve never had a performance problem with Marvel Heroes but last night was insane. I think I will wait until next week’s patch and see where things stand. Overall I’m excited and optimistic about the changes!! :)

BalsBigBrother Takane Shijou Oh, that’s great news then.  Glad to hear it finally happened, albeit a bit rocky.  Thanks for the response and such, I appreciate it.

Armsbend SounderSays can you provide an example of a subscription game that retains income without content updates, and has a non-trivial number of players?

Because I’m having trouble seeing any way your statement would be different if I removed “a cash shop” and replaced it with “an MMO”.

I saw Wasp team-ups everywhere and got excited. I thought there must be a sale or something and I’ve wanted her forever. But, no. I guess people just really like having Wasp as their team up for Ant-Man. That’s okay though. I’m glad they are both so popular.

James Westfall I’ve been really impressed with the newly added side-quest/objectives.  There is now a lot more (optionally) to do in each area of the game with these quests giving story reward chests (that includes both rare items & an eternity splinter!)

I just cant get into the game even though I love marvel. I think I just need a story to go along with what I’m doing which is what kept me playing Diablo(not the greatest story but still a story).

Armsbend SounderSays /facepalm. 

MCU refers to the string of movies involved in the Avengers franchise. Not FF. Not X-Men. Not Spider-Man, etc. 

Your Google-fu is lacking, young padawan.
