Marvel Heroes goes open beta this weekend

Gazzilion’s ARPG Marvel Heroes is set to go into open beta this weekend after many months of closed testing.

The beta will kick off on Saturday 4 May at 3.00 AM BST / 4.00 AM CET and runs until Monday 6 May 18:00AM BST / 19.00 CET. Anyone wanting to take part will need to make sure they gave an account all set up on the official Marvel Heroes website.

For this weekend, as it’s the same weekend Iron Man 3 launched in cinemas, players will be able to choose from one of the Avengers. Play as Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America and Black Widow.

This week I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in the game and so far I have to say I have mixed feelings on the game at the moment. I’m currently putting together a new preview for the site in which I’ll discuss the game’s features so watch out for that.

Finally, to show some of the different Iron Man 3 armours before this weekend, check out these screens.
