From 58 to 81: The Mighty Comeback of Gazillion's Marvel Heroes 2015


In 2013, Gazillion Entertainment released the free-to-play action-RPG Marvel Heroes to a Metacritic score of 58 and to a lukewarm fan base. In the time since, however, the rebranded Marvel Heroes 2015 has turned things around with the force of the Hulk during a Chitauri invasion, leading to a new Metacritic score of 81 and to more satisfied players than ever. Join Gazillion CEO David Brevik (creator of Diablo and Diablo II) as he reveals the answers to some of your biggest questions: How did what started as "just another comic book game" transform itself into one of the most highly rated super hero experiences of all time? What has this meant for the game's popularity? And how did Gazillion do it without resorting the super-villainy some gamers consider inherent to free-to-play business models? All will be revealed
