Marvel RPG to be released

There are plenty of great Role Playing Games (RPG) that feature fantasy worlds, such as Baldurs Gate 2, or science fiction like Knights of the Old Republic 2, but a fully featured Super Hero RPG on computer or console does not exist. That seems set to change with new Super Hero RPG ‘Marvel: Ultimate Alliance’. The new RPG will feature 20 playable characters and feature over 140 of the heroes and villians of the Marvel universe.

“Marvel: Ultimate Alliance delivers a new twist on action/RPGs where players’ actions and choices ultimately determine what happens to the Marvel universe,” states Will Kassoy, VP of global brand management for Activision. “This coupled with the game’s enormous character roster will deliver an action-packed experience that comic book fans have been waiting for.”

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance promises total team customization, where players create their own team name, icon and vehicle and establish their team reputation as they journey through the plot. How that plot plays out is entirely up to the players and the story will feature multiple endings. On and offline cooperative modes will be featured in the game, along with a self-explanatory competitive mode.

Expect to see the game on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, Xbox, PS2, handhelds and PC later this year.

As an RPG fan, I am looking forward to this release. Lets hope it is as good as it sounds.

    City of Heroes is pretty good, although it’s not a classic single-player RPG. I like the idea of creating your own super heroes better than copying ones that already exist. I’m not on City of Heroes any more because I dislike paying a monthly fee but otherwise the CoH game world is pretty cool. Hey, you could be Korea Man and run around attacking people with a flaming Japanese flag, and with your super-healing power, you could chop off your fingers at will since they would grow back anyway.

    Graphics are looking a little outdated, but if it’s fun, who really cares?! 😀 They should make all the characters playble though, then I would most certainly buy it.
