A new character has been added to Marvel Heroes a free-to-play PC game, named Magik.
Gazillion, the developer for the game, launched a poll at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year asking players what character they would like to see added to Marvel Heroes. Magik was added to the game after winning the poll by a large margin.
Magik becomes the 53rd playable character in the game. She is voiced by a prolific voice actress, Tara Strong. Strong has voiced many characters such as Meg Griffin’s singing voice in Family Guy, and recently she voiced Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham City.
“As such a versatile character, we had to ensure that we were representing as many aspects of her history, combat skills, and mutation abilities as possible,” Michael May, a character designer said. “It would have been easy to focus strictly on her Soulsword and make her a pure melee fighter, but she has so much more to offer to a game of our genre. We structured the Soulsword as the core of all of her builds, but utilized her minions, teleportation discs, and sorcery to supplement and enhance her melee combat.”
Magik can be purchased hrough the Magik Hero Pack on Marvel Heroes for $18. The pack comes with:
- 2 Costumes Magik Marvel NOW! (Default), Magik Soul Armor
- Magik Hero S.T.A.S.H. (extra Hero specific inventory)
- 6x Fortune Cards (One each of Mark 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6)
- 2 XP Boosts
