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.
