There are a couple of other features coming to Marvel Heroes next week and on the horizon that we should mention, too. For one, it will be easier to queue for group content using the game’s new queuing system. The starting character roster is also set to expand with some additional iconic and easily recognizable characters, bringing the total list to 10 characters  for those  starting their adventures in Marvel Heroes.  Finally, a “Fire and Ice” PvP mode is coming to Marvel Heroes very soon.  Fire and Ice will pit players against each other in a five vs. five arrangement, rewarding players with experience, loot, and new Asgardian Crowns of Valor.

Before we wrap this up, we also managed to get Doomsaw to spill the beans on the kit of another upcoming character: Ghost Rider. Coming “somewhat soon”, Ghost Rider will have access to a whole suite of awesome Hellfire-based powers.  By default, Ghost Rider will run around on foot and make use of his chains, mace, and even a hellfire shotgun, but he will also make use of his motorcycle for quite a few of his abilities.  In one example (and true to his name), Ghost Rider can rev up his motorcycle and let it fly off, crushing any enemies in its path.  Instantly recognizable to any Ghost Rider fan, Penance Stare will be Ghost Rider’s signature ability and will serve as a high damage single target DPS attack. Normally, signature abilities are wave clear “get out of jail free” cards for characters, but Doomsaw described Ghost Rider’s kit as being extremely AOE heavy as it is, so they wanted his signature to be single target focused instead.

Gazillion hasn’t settled just yet on Ghost Rider’s Ultimate ability, but Doomsaw shared both options they’re considered with us.  One of the two options will have Ghost Rider get on his motorcycle and drive around the screen laying waste to everything and leaving hellfire in his path. The other option being considered would have Ghost Rider summon a hellfire version of his motorcycle and control it with his mind as he fights. But don’t worry, both of these powers will make Ghost Rider’s kit, it’s simply a matter of which ends up ‘juiced up’ for his Ultimate power. If you feel strongly one way or another, this is probably a good opportunity to let Gazillion know!
Chapter 9 is set to launch next week to coincide with the release of Thor: The Dark World.  Chapters 10, 11, and 12 will be released in December, January, and February, respectively.





Trop classe Loki ^^
