Marvel Universe MMO Releases Character Designs



It may still be awhile before Gazillion Entertainment shows off any gameplay from its upcoming free-to-play Marvel Universe MMO, but they have released some of the game's character designs for Captain America, Cable, Wolverine and Deadpool.

Written by Brian Michael Bendis, the as-yet-untitled MMO will allow players to steer the actions of actual Marvel heroes and villains, unlike DC Universe Online, which tasks players with creating their own characters. Back when the game was announced it was indicated that Bendis' storyline will take players through famous Marvel storylines from the Golden Age and onward, including those in alternate realities like the Ultimate Universe, and the Marvel Movieverse.

So far the designs seem rooted in the main "616" reality, although they seem streamlined enough to accommodate heavy design modifications down the road for the sake of alternate costumes.

Check out the character designs released so far below:

        The Cosmic Cube is a device of untold power capable of changing the very fabric of reality at the whim of its possessor. The brilliant but malevolent Dr. Doom has the Cube, and with it he aims to reshape the world in his own image. Determined to succeed where the Cube's previous wielders have failed, Doom has lined up villainous allies to prevent the super-heroes from interfering. Can you unravel Doctor Doom's sinister plan and stop him before it's too late?

No release date yet.  Over the past few years this game has been cancelled, renamed, changed developers, and changed engines.  Considering Gazillion just switched to the Unreal 3 engine in February, I'd be surprised if they manage to release it this year.  However, from what I've read, Gazillion's switch to Unreal 3 has greatly improved development progress for the game, so who knows.

As for capitalizing on the success of the Avengers movie, Facebook's Avengers Alliance has been doing a pretty solid job of that.  Even I've been enjoying it, and I hate Facebook games.   ;)
