Marvel Heroes Advance Pack lets you pre-order characters
Gazillion Entertainment have opened up Advance Pack orders for Marvel Heroes, letting you pre-order pretty much all of the playable heroes and villains to be released over the next year at a steep discount.
The Standard Edition, which costs $99.99, will give you access to Dr. Strange, Juggernaut, Magneto, Moon Knight, Nightcrawler, Psylocke, Silver Surfer, Star-Lord, Sue Storm, Venom, and two additional heroes that have yet to be announced. You’ll also get 36 Fortune Cards (12 Mark IV, 12 Mark V, and 12 Mark VI), 12 Retcon devices, and a Hero Stash tab for every hero in the pack.
Alternatively, you can opt for the $129.99 Deluxe Edition. This includes all of the above plus an extra costume for each of those heroes, double the number of Fortune Cards and Retcon devices, Gambit’s As Death costume and Wolverine’s Fear Itself costume (given to you a month before they hit the store), and – if you order before 31 December – a free Ghost Rider bundle. That adds in Ghost Rider, two costumes, a Hero Stash tab, a Retcon potion, and six Fortune Cards.
The pricing still seems fairly steep to me, but considering how much all of this stuff would cost individually (Gazillion reckon $215 and $425, respectively) it’s a fairly good discount if it’s the sort of thing you’re interested in. And hey, I can’t really talk. I’m still eyeing up Fiery Soul of the Slayer, and that’s entirely cosmetic.
