Starting with Thor: The Dark World…
Speaking to Digital Spy, Gazillion marketing VP Leo Olebe revealed that the Marvel Heroes MMO will be adding content related to the upcoming Marvel Studios movie, Thor: The Dark World. He also added that there will be clear synergy between the game and Marvel Movies.
The free-to-play game will soon add Asgard zone in an upcoming update. Content based on other upcoming Marvel films will also be added later.
Olebe stated, "We've got the Asguard stuff coming up. The Captain America movie is coming, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, and The Avengers sequels even further in the future." He added: "One of the examples we like to give of general Marvel synergy happened about two or three years ago. The Marvel guys came up to us and told us the story of Rocket Raccoon, and said that we've got to put him in the game. We were like 'really? He's cool, but is he that cool?' and they said 'trust us, this is going to be good'. And it wasn't just because they were redoing the Guardians of the Galaxy stuff in the 'Marvel Now' campaign, but also because of the movie."
Olebe also said that Marvel has been very supporting of the game: "Our writer goes down there, gets to go into a little room and read the script or the summary of the script. Marvel's been really good about letting us play in their world, and we can pick and choose stuff that we want to do, but it's not all just see the movie, play the game."
