Gazillion Entertainment has announced today that they will be implementing a Founders Program into Marvel Heroes, a free-to-play MMO action-RPG that will be launching in Spring 2013.
The Founders Program will allow players to purchase limited-edition digital Founders Packs for access to their favourite heroes, unique costumes, early game access and in-game currency that players will be able to use within the game to buy even more heroes or costumes at the launch.
?Our team is hard at work to make sure Marvel Heroes is true to hardcore players, Marvel fans and the most casual of gamers through deep, MMO action-RPG gameplay, an expansive interactive storyline and easy-to-play experience,? said David Brevik, president and chief operating officer, Gazillion Entertainment. ?We?ve built Marvel Heroes from the ground up to be a free-to-play game where players can find and collect nearly every hero and costume in the game just by playing. The Founders Program gives players the opportunity to play as their favorite hero from the day we launch in addition to enough in-game currency to buy more heroes and costumes as we release new content.?
