The thrill of being able to enjoy an adventure in an online universe with Spider-Man, Dr. Doom, Hulk or Wolverine is sure to rouse most Marvel fans. The game is made exclusively for Xbox 360 and Windows Vista. This means that PC gamers and Xbox 360 gamers will be playing online together through Live Anywhere.
It is curious that the developer of Marvel Universe Online is Cryptic Studios, a studio which has been known to have had small rows with Marvel concerning the content of City of Heroes and City of Villains, both MMORPGs. However, now these differences have have been put aside to create a vast universe of superheroes and supervillains.
Cryptic Studios ensures fans that they will still continue to develop the ”City of” games, and that Marvel Universe will be something different, more linked to the unique style of Marvel comics.
