Here’s an overview of the game, via Gazillion community manager David Lee on the PlayStation Blog:
“So what is Marvel Heroes Omega? Marvel Heroes Omega doesn’t really fall into typical genre categories. It draws inspiration from both action-RPGs and MMOs, making it a truly unique blend of non-stop action and near limitless progression!
If you’ve got a favorite Marvel Super Hero, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to play as him or her in Marvel Heroes Omega. It’s got one of the largest rosters of playable Heroes that pulls from all corners of the Marvel Universe. Play as Spider-Man, the Avengers, the Defenders, the Inhumans, the X-Men, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and so many more!
Lovers of lore can also expect a fantastic tour through famous locations, from the dark streets of Hell’s Kitchen to the mystical realm of Asgard. The nine-chapter story campaign will also find players facing off against some of Marvel’s most infamous Super Villains, including Doctor Doom and the trickster god Loki. But finishing the story is really just the beginning! Like many great online games, we think Marvel Heroes Omega is best played with others – and players can look forward to joining forces with fellow Super Heroes in the game’s many Headquarter areas to tackle the game’s most challenging end-game content.
There are so many more things I’d love to tell you about Marvel Heroes Omega. Like many other notable action-RPGs we love, we think it plays great on PS4. And with so many great Super Heroes, locations, stories, missions, modes, features, and literally thousands of hours of replayability, who could ask for more? But we don’t expect you to just take our word for it.”
