Marvel Puzzle Quest has been a mobile hit, where it’s been free-to-play since launch. As we reported earlier this month, the console release is going to shift to a premium model. It arrives today.
The $ 14.99 base game will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 today. The Xbox 360 version appears to be available now, the PlayStation versions are not posted as of writing. An Xbox One version is also planned and may simply not be available on the marketplace yet.
Additionally, there are two DLC story lines. One features the Hulk, as the Dark Avengers attempt to recruit him. Purchasing the Science Friction DLC gets you Punisher. Completing it on Hard lets you add Hulk to your team.
The other stars Deadpool, in The Case of the Cold Chimichangas. Purchasing it gets you Doctor Octopus. Completing on Hard gives you Deadpool.
Each of the DLC packs will cost you $ 3.99. We'll update as we learn about the Xbox One version release.
Update: Publisher D3 has confirmed that the Xbox One version will be arriving later this year. No release date has been announced.
I'm a big fan of the Puzzle Quest series, and the free-to-play mechanics here have put me off this installment. I'm looking forward to playing this without the microtransactions.
