The Marvel Universe is about to change forever. (Alright, it's about to change forever again.) This time, the big change sees the comic book universe changing over to the 'All-New, All-Different Marvel,' with the comics fast-forwarding eight months after the events of the recent Secret Wars event, an event that isn't set to finish until December. Nevertheless, Gazillion is looking to keep up with these changes and is offering up new content based on the All-New, All-Different Marvel for Marvel Heroes 2015 starting tomorrow.

One of the biggest additions will be the arrival of Spider-Gwen as a Team-Up partner. For those unfamiliar, this is an alternate universe version of Gwen Stacy, in which she actually became that universe's Spider-Man, while Peter Parker became the Lizard and was killed, putting a huge twist on the traditional Peter/Gwen dynamic that has been in place for decades. Spider-Gwen immediately resonated with readers and has become one of Marvel's hottest new titles.

Marvel Heroes 2015 will also add a new Captain Marvel costume, based on Carol Danvers' new look that's set to debut soon in Captain Marvel #1. The changes actually won't stop there. Carol Danvers will no longer be "Ms. Marvel" in the game, but will now go by the Captain Marvel moniker on a permanent basis. The new costume will now be her default.

Still looking for more? How about the new Thor? Comic book readers found out recently that the new Thor floating around the Marvel Universe is actually long-time supporting character Jane Foster. Now she'll become playable with tomorrow's update, with a new costume. The new Thor will be voiced by veteran voice actress Jennifer Hale.

Other additions include costume changes for Wolverine and the Scarlet Witch, which will reflect the big changes in their books. The former will change Wolverine to the former X-23, who has taken up the mantle in the comics in the wake of Logan's death. The Scarlet Witch costume will reflect the one that appears in her upcoming solo series.

More All-New, All-Different Marvel changes will hopefully be in the pipeline, given that Marvel Heroes 2015 has been great about staying faithful to the books. Look for more changes to come soon as the game formally transitions to Marvel Heroes 2016.

Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      More like yesterday. They already put a few comics out, which is all fucked up because Secret Wars isn't even wrapped up yet

        The Secret Wars ending got pushed back, I think. It's a little jarring to have a post-SW Doom floating around Iron Man without knowing what happened to him.

        Also, good on Peter Parker. He's finally grown up.

          Not quite sure how Peter got to where he is. I am guessing Secret Wars ends with the main actors each being given a small bit of Doom's power and reforging the world/universe.

          That being said I still want Peter/MJ back.

            Also did I miss the conclusion to the whole Black Cat being evil thing? Because in the teaser for Silk it looks like she is a good guy again.

      The wolverine bit is weird. X-23 has been playable in the game for sometime, so now wolverine gets a skin to play..as another hero already in game? weird.

        Yeah, not sure how much of that could that be copy/paste from a Gaz press release but it does seem off.

        I havent logged in to check but screenshots from the SA Marvel Heroes thread does show X-23's power set and not Wolverine's

      Is that the official name? Does that mean in 2016 they will change it again and get another clean slate on Metacritic?

      Those damn geniuses.
