First details on Marvel Universe revealed

Now that DC Universe Online is out of the way, super hero fans have a new MMO to look forward to, Marvel Universe.

This isn’t the 360/PC MMO resurrected, rather a new, free-to-play MMO from Gazillion, the team behind Lego Universe, who announced new details at a recent press conference. Instead of creating your own character and fighting alongside your favorite heroes, Universe (the Marvel one, not the DC or LEGO one) will actually let you play as Marvel’s best, with Spider-man, Wolverine, Captain America and Squirrel Girl (!) all currently confirmed.

The team has brought on popular Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis to pen the story, which spans across several different comic book plots leading up to a battle with Dr Doom.

And that’s about all we can tell you for now; no word on release dates or a look at the gameplay. This is an MMO and it’s in the early stages of development, so don’t expect news to exactly come flooding out.
