With thousands of hours of character progression and rewards, Marvel Heroes Omega comes packed with tons of replayability and increasing challenges for a free-to-play console title.
Aiming to deliver the ultimate experience for Marvel fans and gamers, Marvel Heroes Omega assembles one of the largest in-game gatherings of iconic Super Heroes from the Marvel Universe, featuring 38 playable Heroes at launch with many more to follow and hundreds of costumes inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, comics, television shows, and animated shows.
