Marvel Heroes is now ‘Omega’ on Steam for PC players (without Omega content)

    
16

Say, what’s that enormous download chugging up your Steam? Oh no biggie, just Marvel Heroes again… Marvel Heroes Omega, that is. Yes, it’s July 2017, and Marvel Heroes’ PC version has finally shed its 2016 name and joined the consoles!

Well, in name, anyway.

“Starting today July 7, 2017, Marvel Heroes 2016 (the PC version) becomes Marvel Heroes Omega to better align with the recently released Xbox One and PlayStation 4 console releases,” Gazillion wrote on its forums. “Having the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One games under one brand prevents confusion and moves toward releasing future updates that are more in-tune with one another. Like many successful cross-platform free-to-play titles, it is our intent that the PC version of Marvel Heroes Omega remains the lead product.”

So don’t get too excited; the PC hasn’t actually received the actual Omega content yet, and today’s patch is chiefly bug fixes. New costumes for consoles, though!

I saw the name update and logged in looking for the itemization changes…I couldn’t find anything new. I guess this is why…they were doing a month long “celebration” for a name update? The staff that’s still left there sucks.

Marvel Heroes Omega 2018 will be better.

They could have re-branded the PC Version “Console Test Center”. At least that would be honest. The PC Version feels like nei-Abondonware at this point.

I want to say how I feel about the direction this game has gone , but I just don’t have enough salt on hand to cover this gross pile of crap. All I’m guna say is the same thing I said forever about this game and that is…… Add some kinda end game challenge mode where you can actually put your gear and skill to the test, Like 3 and 5 man dungeons where you can’t respawn in combat. This game is STILL completely pointless at max level.

omega content … if you are talking about omega items and things like that, then console isn’t ahead as i don’t believe omega items exist there either. console doesn’t even have some stuff that pc has.

though i suppose some might be talking about ui, in which case console is “ahead” in the sense that theirs is newer and think some of that might get ported back to pc at some point

Ah okay, the way its worded (or well the way i read it maybe) makes it seem like consoles have the Omega content while the PC side is playing catch up, which left me scratching my head considering MH started on PC lol

At least they did not get to dodge all their negative Steam reviews with this move. I do sorta feel like reinstalling it now though… Am I that easy?
