Marvel Heroes is making the jump to Marvel Heroes 2016 later this month (Update: That date has actually moved to January), but there are still a few new features that Gazillion is offering up right before the jump. One of the most intriguing ones just hit the game today in the form of a new endgame activity called the Danger Room.

Longtime X-Men readers will recognize the Danger Room as the chamber where Charles Xavier's mutants did their training. In recent years, the Danger Room was revealed to be the product of a sentient mutant, who was then given the name Danger. Danger will greet Marvel Heroes players in a brand new hub, where players can undertake special missions. Danger Room Scenarios are a new type of item drop that will open up a Danger Room simulation constructed from scratch, which can include modified missions, boss rushes, or other instanced situations. Completing a Scenario will grand players Merit currency that can be exchanged for special items.

Up to five players can embark on Danger Room Scenarios for major loot, but the Scenarios are one-time use only. Fail at a Scenario and that's the end. Look for future Scenarios to be added in the future, especially as Marvel Heroes jumps to 2016 soon. For more on the Danger Room, check out the Marvel Heroes website.

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?
