Grab a Friend and Team-Up Online. Earth’s Mightiest Action-RPG Enters Closed Beta

FOSTER CITY, CA -- April 21, 2017 -- Gazillion, a leading video game developer and publisher, announced that the closed beta for Marvel Heroes Omega on PlayStation®4 begins today! Inspired in part by popular action-RPGs and massively multiplayer online games, Marvel Heroes Omega combines non-stop action and long form RPG progression features. Marvel fans and gamers can level-up, defeat infamous Marvel Super Villains and henchmen, collect rare loot, and grow in power. 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.

To celebrate today’s closed beta launch, which is scheduled to run until May 15, 2017, Gazillion also officially confirms drop-in, two-player, couch co-op for Marvel Heroes Omega . This co-op feature will be available starting today, making it the perfect time to join the closed beta with a friend from the comfort of your living room.

Players interested in joining the PlayStation®4 closed beta for Marvel Heroes Omega can select from a variety of Founder’s Packs for sale on the PlayStation®Store to secure continued closed beta access -- these can be purchased online via the official PlayStation®Store website or through the PlayStation®4 console.

As a special “thank you” to all players, regardless of whether or not they purchase a Founder’s Pack or participate in the closed beta, can look forward to receiving Daredevil, the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, as a free playable character when Marvel Heroes Omega launches later this spring.

“There’s never been a better time to be a Marvel fan,” said David Von Dorman, CEO at Gazillion. “With so many exciting films, television shows, and comics coming soon, we’re beyond excited to be able to bring the characters, costumes, and adventures of the Marvel Universe to life in living rooms around the world. Marvel Heroes Omega has been a true passion project and labor of love for everyone here at Gazillion -- and we can’t wait for players to experience it for the first time themselves on consoles.”
