David Brevik has made quite a name for himself over the years with Blizzard and Turbine, now given the chance to work some magic with Marvel superheroes, he's referencing those past lives.
In a wide ranging interview
he has spoken to SPOnG about the franchise, how it will play out as an MMO and specifically how it references both Diablo III
and World of Warcraft
During the interview, he told us, "We're not going to have the same auction house system Diablo 3
has at all. The auction house stuff that Marvel Heroes
will have will be much more similar to a traditional MMO.
"It will be more akin to World of Warcraft
where you put something up in the auction house. We're going to have a lot of items that actually bind to your character so a lot of the best items you can't really sell them so that's our philosophy on the issue of item acquisition."
He was also asked
, "Does MH
have the same model of running through the same instance over and over?
He explained, "It's not like World of Warcraft
where you're defeating the Lich King over and over again until he drops that one item. We're doing something that's much more similar to Diablo II
where as you're playing it at any given time something excellent can drop."Full interview here.
