Gazillion Entertainment just announced that their MMORPG Marvel Universe Online will launch as a free-to-play game, in a strategy that is becoming more and more usual. High-profile games such as The Lord of the Rings Online, Champions Online and Dungeons and Dragons Online are also free-to-play, although they were released in retail.
Marvel Universe Online is in development since 2009 by Secret Identity, a Gazillion Entertainment studio, and is using the Unreal Engine. Even if COO David Brevik didn’t reveal if the game was a client or browser-based title, all points to a downloadable client.
