With the recent update to Marvel Heroes 2016 game to become more “controller” friendly, many are expecting the game to come to home consoles and recently, the game has made the jump the Nvidia Shield console. This is the first massively multiplayer online game to be released on GeForce NOW, and it’s free for all members to enjoy.
Marvel Heroes is a FREE-TO-PLAY action-packed massively multiplayer online game created by David Brevik, the visionary behind Diablo and Diablo 2. The game is set in the iconic Marvel Universe, Marvel Heroes combines the core game-play style of Action RPGs and MMOs with the expansive library of heroes from the Marvel Universe.
Before players can play Marvel Heroes for the first time on SHIELD, and will need to establish a game account, which can be done here. Accounts are free, and players can choose a in-game player name, email associated with a account and choose a password, though you can just log in with your existing account if you already have an account. Players just need to navigate to GeForce NOW within SHIELD Hub: Marvel Heroes will be in the New for Members category. And if you have just picked up a new NVIDIA SHIELD TV, open the NVIDIA Games app (available on your home screen) and launch the game from the New on GeForce NOW category.
GeForce NOW is the world’s first cloud-gaming service capable of streaming PC games at up to 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second. Members enjoy access to a library of 100-plus games they can play on-demand, plus the option to purchase new games and play them instantly. Membership is free for the first month, then just $7.99 per month.
The recent update allows players to play the game without the use of a keyboard and very much looks like this is an early test to see if the game will work on a console. I’m excited to see this game move from PC to more devices, bringing more players into the game and if you have a Nvidia Shield, its worth checking out.
