We're excited to announce that today we have added two new Premium Packs to the Marvel Heroes Founders Program, featuring the Armored Avenger himself, Iron Man!
These two Premium Packs take inspiration from Iron Man's long history and feature looks from comics and screen. Each pack allows players to begin playing Marvel Heroes as Iron Man, with six iconic armors included in each. Existing (and future!) Ultimate Pack purchasers of course get everything - including the exclusive Mark 42 armor from Iron Man 3! Let's take a look inside each Premium Pack:
Iron Man - Movie Star
In just five years and four movies, Tony Stark has managed to create a veritable Hall of Armors, and we've worked closely with Marvel to bring these armors to life in Marvel Heroes. Every in-game armor has been created using the original CG models straight from the movie VFX teams, making them as authentic and detailed as possible.
The Iron Man Movie Star Premium Pack features armors from Marvel's Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Avengers.
From Iron Man we have the Mark II 'prototype armor', first worn when Tony test-flies for the first time. (The Mark III armor, also featured in the movie, will be available in Marvel Heroes either as an in-game purchase or as a random drop. It's also included in the Ultimate Pack. Purchasers of the Iron Man Movie Star Premium Pack can pick up the Mark III with their included in-game currency!)
From Iron Man 2, we've included the Mark IV armor, the iconic Mark V (AKA the 'suitcase armor') and the Mark VI with its distinctive triangle-shaped arc reactor.
Finally from Marvel's The Avengers we have the Mark VII armor seen during the movie's climactic battle. The Premium Pack is completed with Iron Man's first armor in Marvel Heroes, the Extremis armor.
Iron Man - The Armory
Chronologically, we start with the debut of the Mark I armor - first seen in Iron Man's origin tale, in Tales of Suspense #39 (1963)! This distinctive grey look was soon replaced by a golden version of the armor - which may also make an appearance in Marvel Heroes...
The Armory pack also includes the 'Golden Avenger' Classic armor, seen by many as Iron Man's definitive look; the black Stealth armor; the 1980s-style Silver Centurion armor; and the more modern Extremis armor.
Finally we bring Iron Man right up to date with his Marvel NOW! armor, which debuted in 2012. This distinctive black and gold look completes The Armory and looks fantastic in-game.
Whether you're an Iron Man comics fan or only know him from the movies, with these two Premium Packs you can pick up your favorite looks for your favorite Avenger and save! Don't forget with the Ultimate Pack you get EVERY armor including the Mark 42 Armor from Iron Man 3 - exclusively - and a chance to play with them in Closed Beta!
