Marvel Heroes Fire and Ice goes into beta phase
There are 3 kinds of questions that are thought to create arguments that will live until the end of time; questions about politics, questions about religion, and questions about who would win in a fair fight, Iceman or Pyro? Well, the third one may finally be answered, as Marvel Heroes PvP mode, Fire and Ice goes into beta phase.
"We are extremely excited to announce that our new PvP mode Fire & Ice has launched in Beta form."
Fire and Ice is the handle for the MMORPG's PvP combat mode, something never before seen in Marvel Heroes. Much like the popular MOBA format seen in many MMO games, Fire and Ice will face 5 combatants against 5 competitors, in a team-battle, arena setting, where each team of heroes must destroy their opponent's base. "Runestones can be earned and traded for buffs, to push your team forward in the quest for map dominance.
Sound familiar? Arguably, DC already have this style covered with their own, true, MOBA iteration, Infinite Crisis, but since many Marvel fans refuse to cross the Marvel/DC barrier, this will actually give a lot of fans something they've been enviously clamoring for. Either way, it's great to see Marvel taking on the PvP genre and will provide us all with the ability of putting some of the greatest superheroes in comic book history in the ring, against each other.
No news of when this will be released yet, but in the mean time; which Marvel Heroes would you like to see duke it out against each other? Let us know in the comments below!
