A combination of MMO and good ol’ Diablo mechanics, Marvel Heroes 2016 is a properly solid F2P game that can easily consume hours of your time.

From icons like Spider-Man and Iron Man through to lesser known heroes like Black Bolt and villains such as Taskmaster, the massive collection of characters to use is surprisingly flexible and varied. Marvel Heroes 2016 has been a mainstay on PC for several years already. Now, it’s coming to PlayStation 4 as Marvel Heroes Omega.
