Marvel Heroes 2016 rolls out in December with Secret Invasion story

Gazillion announced to a closed-door panel at New York Comic-Con over the weekend that Marvel Heroes 2015 is ready to make the switch to Marvel Heroes 2016 in December, adding a new Secret Invasion story and a number of quality-of-life improvements.


During a closed-door panel at yesterday's New York Comic-Con, fans had the opportunity to learn more about Gazillion's upcoming changeover to Marvel Heroes 2016. First revealed at PAX Prime, the major update now has a deployment window, with the Marvel Heroes 2015 developers announcing that it'll drop in December.

Gazillion plans to roll out major content throughout the coming year, including an all-new story instance that centers around the "Secret Invasion" event from the comics. This is the tale that sees Skrulls invade Earth by abducting and then imitating Marvel's most powerful heroes and villains. The invasion will be led by Kl'rt, also known as Super-Skrull, who will make his debut and prove a tough foil as he wields the combined powers of the Fantastic Four.

The update will also include many quality-of-life improvements, such as the addition of controller support, visual updates, leaderboards, and over 100 Steam Achievements. All of this will arrive as the Mac version of Marvel Heroes officially exits its beta phase.

Other content is planned for the future, including a new Patrol Zone set in the dinosaur-filled Savage Land, a new raid that sees team confront the galactic despot Thanos, and more content based on the All-New, All-Different Marvel comics that are starting to roll out.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. 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?
