Marvel War Of Heroes: Everything We Know
Just the facts. Now all we need is a release date.
As we reported at the end last week, Marvel War of Heroes missed its expected Thursday release date for reasons unknown. It hasn't dampened our enthusiasm for the new superhero card-battling game though, so we've rounded up all the information you need to know about this upcoming game.
Who's making the game?
Mobage, and that's a very good sign of things to come. The company's not just one of the biggest mobile publishers, it also has previous form in delivering a high-quality mobile card game. Rage of Bahamut has consumed a huge amount of our free time, and judging from the download charts it consumed a fair amount of yours too. Here's hoping they can use that past success to deliver again with War of Heroes.
How will you level your cards?
The game appears to follow the standard progression of other card games. You'll need to gather, train and lead a team of superheroes or supervillains, with the ultimate aim of heading online and beating the living hell out of your friends. If you'd rather play cooperatively with your buddies, you can head online for some team-vs-team fighting. We've even heard rumors of guild support for tackling global threats.
How will the single player campaign work?
There are two single-player campaigns, with one focusing on the exploits of the superheroes, and the other forming the adventures of the supervillians. You won't be stuck with leveling up a single favorite character either, as the action will switch from one iconic hero to another as the story progresses. Later on, you'll be able to pair characters together and gain bonuses for making suitable partnerships.
How will multiplayer work?
As well as the online battling and team-vs-team content mentioned above, there'll also be special weekend-long PVP tournaments that will reward players with special cards that won't otherwise be available through normal play. This will reward the most committed and active players for getting involved with the community. Want to get hold of an exclusive card for when the game launches?

Which characters will be included?
There'll be between 100 and 200 cards launching with the game, and they'll take in all of your Marvel favorites such as Spiderman and Iron Man. The card artwork looks beautiful too, so you'll likely spend as much time gazing over your collection as you will fighting with it.
