I'm in the's like ultimate alliance but waaaaaaaaaaaaayyy better. Plus it will be free
KingEmperor - 12/23/2012, 3:25 PM
So this is a larger scale Ultimate Alliance 3? I'm interested...
toco89 - 12/23/2012, 3:29 PM
Bendis seems to write anything prominent to do with marvel. His Dark Avengers run was ok, even though he got absurdly lazy when it came to the Sentry('im gonna explain his powers...he's all-powerful, there.). But everything else becomes a snooze with long conversations about nothing.
CharlesLord - 12/23/2012, 3:30 PM
hahaha more characters just come out of nowhere
Minato - 12/23/2012, 3:35 PM
I will check this out only cause i miss Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Darth258 - 12/23/2012, 3:38 PM
I'll try the demo before judging... though free is good
DioFoRio - 12/23/2012, 3:52 PM
you can still sign up for the beta
BlammoBlam - 12/23/2012, 4:14 PM
@Dionysios where can you sign up?
BANE5000 - 12/23/2012, 4:22 PM
So will this be for consoles or PC or both?
mk - 12/23/2012, 4:57 PM
dang nice ive been waiting for an invite and all haha hopefully this goes more into the route of torchlight 2 than d3 cause d3 sucks ;)
EpicDeathKick - 12/23/2012, 5:01 PM
Release date?
DioFoRio - 12/23/2012, 5:03 PM
@Blammo...go to gazillions site

@Mk...I know right? D3 turned out to be such a disappointment. I was so excited at first for that game. This is way better at this stage than d3 ,you should be happy when you play it. Hope you get into this one. Hit me up if you do.
AgentP - 12/23/2012, 5:03 PM
Rocket Raccoon is a playable character, but Doctor Strange isn't. What is the world coming to?
FirstAvenger - 12/23/2012, 5:09 PM
Should be on console. :-(
Zombie137 - 12/23/2012, 5:25 PM
So you wont be able to build your own hero? NO? Oh.. No thanks.
Gunslinger - 12/23/2012, 5:28 PM
PC only? Got a pretty decent work laptop, but it's integrated graphics... No way it will run this. Release it for PS3, DCUO has been pretty successful since it became available for free, and there's a lot more people using consoles than with a PC with a dedicated graphics card...
TheGambitFreak - 12/23/2012, 6:21 PM
Could've sworn they were flapping their gums about how this would be PC/Xbox exclusive..... Cause my PC is shit.
mgeoff88 - 12/23/2012, 6:55 PM
That actually looks pretty good. I doubt my PC will be able to run this though.

I hope they're still planning to release this on Xbox.

Ha ha, that is one random team: Ms. Marvel, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, The Punisher, and Deadpool.

@TheGambitFreak I remember that too. Champions Online was supposed to be on Xbox, but it never happened. Fingers crossed Marvel Heroes will be an exception.
JDUKE25 - 12/23/2012, 7:06 PM
Eh, looks ok. Nothing amazing.
SpideyQuad - 12/23/2012, 7:22 PM

Do you know how closely it plays the Diablo three? Meaning is it the same mouse functions with special skills set up through the numbers on the top of the keyboard?

I ask this because of my disability (no use of my hands or fingers). But I can operate the mouse and push some key buttons with verbal control-thanks! I'm so excited about this game I hope I can play!
DioFoRio - 12/23/2012, 7:42 PM
hey're in luck. It's just like diablo(better in my opinion) and it plays the same way. You try and get into the beta man!
113 - 12/23/2012, 7:48 PM
Give me a Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 or a reboot. The first one was amazing and the second was ok, but was generally disappointing.
Jerec350 - 12/23/2012, 8:12 PM
I'm in the beta now and so far I'm not really thrilled with it. Good thing it is free. I was hoping for controls where you use the WASD keys but no, you can only use the mouse for movement and a few keys for special moves.
SpideyQuad - 12/23/2012, 8:31 PM
Dionysios, I may give it a try. I presently use a Mac, but I do have a copy of Windows 7, it's just a matter of taking the time to install onto the hard drive. I'll let you know how that goes.
TheNightmare - 12/23/2012, 8:41 PM
I'm in the beta and I love it. Since it's from the maker Diablo the play style is very Diablo. I really enjoy it can't wait to play with friends. Wish I could tell ya'll more but part of being in the beta is agreeing not to say really anything about the beta.

Dionysios what is your gamername/tag in the beta? I just got in two days ago when they did the Q/A on marvel giving out free beta codes how long you been in?

JakoboNo they haven't said a realese date. They keep saying it comes out when it comes out.
Jaspion - 12/23/2012, 9:36 PM
They just run? They don't fly?
arachnidzpr7 - 12/23/2012, 9:48 PM
marvel ultimate alliance best game evaaaaaaaaaaaar
TheNightmare - 12/23/2012, 9:49 PM
good news Jaspion they actually have that in some of the videos so I get to talk about it. I think in this video you see Iron Man flying around. David talks about it in some of the other videos. A couple of days ago had an hour session with gamespot, its on Gazillion's website.

But it is a skill and while you are flying you can't attack but you can fly to an area then float down and fight the mob/creeps.
Jaspion - 12/23/2012, 9:59 PM
Nice, very interesting. Thanks man.
MisterBabadook - 12/24/2012, 12:01 AM
I have to agree w/ Zombie137

If you can't make you're own hero than I'll stick to DCuO. That's free too.
DeathstrokeRulez469 - 12/24/2012, 4:03 AM
This looks pretty good,still pissed about no Ghost Rider.....Really want to play as him. >:(
Cyanide - 12/24/2012, 5:24 AM
I don't know about this. The idea is great, but it doesn't ring my bell that much. If they had merged City of Heroes with the DCUO and would put that into the Marvel franchise I'd be there headfirst. But to make only a Diablo clone doesn't sound that fresh to me...
But I'll give it a try, I guess...
Bark4Soul - 12/24/2012, 8:27 AM
Diablo with the Marvel U...take my money now
CaptainDoctorIamTheLaw - 12/24/2012, 8:54 AM
I'm not sure about this one...
