Every day is a new adventure as kids, parents and your favorite Marvel Super Heroes fight the evil forces of Doctor Doom in Marvel’s first free-to-play MMO (massively multiplayer online game), Super Hero Squad Online. Created in cooperation with Gazillion Entertainment, a privately held developer and publisher of free-to-play games, Super Hero Squad Online offer children and parents a safe interactive game playing space with familiar characters that span generations.
“Super Hero Squad Online brings characters to life with emotes, items and powers that have been created to fit their personalities and stay true to their histories,” stated Jason Robar, Vice President and Studio Manager for Seattle-based Gazillion studio, The Amazing Society. “I’ve been a huge fan of Marvel all my life and I’m thrilled to be able to bring the joy I have with this brand in a safe, interactive way to my own kids.”
Players old and young can battle the mega huge space dragon Fin Fang Foom or match wits with the diabolically clever Doctor Octopus as they work to save Super City and build their squads from dozens of available Marvel Super Heroes. As Squaddies level up, they unlock trophies, items and abilities. They can fly through the sky as Falcon or scale walls with Spider Woman while exploring Baxter Plaza and the Daily Bugle. With console quality graphics, players can become the mighty Thor, the seductive Scarlet Witch, the enchanting Elektra or any one of dozens of other favorite Marvel characters.
We’re thrilled to bring some of Marvel’s beloved characters to life in Super Hero Squad Online,” said TQ Jeffereson, Vice President of Games Production, Marvel Entertainment. “The world of free-to-play MMO gaming is one that we are excited to be part of and we look forward to bringing this interactive game to all families.”
Players bring imagination to life in their very own fully customizable S.H.E.I.L.D. Helicarrier Headquarters. Decorate the Bridge, unleash Super Heroes and watch them interact with anything and everything available. Have Hulk go on awesome adventures with the Black Widow boogies to the music of a boombox. With thousands of usable items, players will be able to fully deck out their own headquarters and enjoy their own unique experience.
