Marvel MMO Details Revealed

     At a press conference on Thursday, Marvel unveiled several details about its upcoming massively multiplayer online game, MARVEL UNIVERSE.

     The first bit of news should please comic book fans: it was announced that renowned writer Brian Michael Bendis will pen the game's script.

     "The reason I was so desperate to be a part of this is that I'm a big believer that the Marvel Universe is more than a fictional universe of characters, it's kind of a lifestyle for a lot of people," said Bendis.

     Marvel also released details about the game's logistics. Unlike DC UNIVERSE ONLINE, the mmo will be free-to-play. Moreoever, players will be able to take on the roles of Marvel Universe heroes and villains.

     Among the main characters confirmed to be in the game are Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and Spider-Man. Dr. Doom will be the game's main villain.

     The game's storylines will draw from the Marvel Universe as well as Marvel Studio films and the animated series, AVENGERS: EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HEROES. Nevertheless, players will have the ability to create their own stories and continuity as they venture throughout the game world.
