Marvel Heroes Omega Getting ShutteredJason Love

Officially, no reason has been given as to why Marvel/Disney decided to end things and revoke the license for the game. In the email to Kotaku, the Marvel representative merely stated "We regret to inform our Marvel Heroes fans that we have ended our relationship with Gazillion Entertainment, and that the Marvel Heroes games will be shut down." Later in the day, an official post was made on the game's forums stating that the final day would be December 31, 2017, and that they would be "...removing real money purchases as soon as possible. Players will be able to play the game entirely for free once this sunset period commences." There's been no statement thus far as to what will happen to Gazillion itself.

The final content update brings with it some skins themed around Gearbox's other franchise, Borderlands. Specifically, you can acquire skins to make Alani look like Maya, Caldarius gets a Maliwan makeover, El Dragón goes Psycho, ISIC turns into that loveable Claptrap, Orendi dresses up like Tiny Tina, and Rath is Zer0. There are also a number of color skins, taunts, and "finisher boosts" added.

For the (somehow) uninitiated, TBoI and its many offspring are roguelikes centered around a small, incredibly sad child and his quest to do... well, a number of things that I won't spoil for you.  To accomplish said quest, though, the player must work their way through a series of randomly generated levels and survive each segment using the game's twin-stick shooter combat.

The game was originally pushed as a launch title, but minor delays mean that it'll (for real) be out on March 17th.  The Binding of Isaac has gone through many iterations at this point, currently culminating in Afterbirth+, so you'll have plenty of content to work through on your fancy new system.

While the big draw for this DLC is the inclusion of mod tools for users to make their own levels (PC only, I'm afraid), it will also add some features for every platform, like a new final chapter, a new boss, new items, and a new playable character. Here's the full list from the dev's blog post:

The announcement came from the developer and the publisher, 2K Studios. In their farewell post on their community site, Turtle Rock Studios talked about how much they enjoyed working on the title and how much they appreciate the support from the community through all its ups and downs.

In late 2014, the original Binding of Isaac gave way to Rebirth, a new version of the game that, among other things, added a two player local co-op mode.  A new DLC, "Afterbirth", was released in the time since, but it had yet to make its way to consoles.  In a recent press release, the developers finally announced that the massive expansion was to be available May 10th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (sorry, Wii U players).

For those who may be unfamiliar with them, the devs have a forum thread on their website that goes into more detail about how these non-dedicated servers work. Essentially, a player can create one of these servers by choosing to host a session and specifying the appropriate settings. The server will only exist while the host is active so you can't get back into it when the host is not playing. Additionally, players are tethered to the host by a range of 200 meters, so you're not free to roam about wherever you choose. Studio Wildcard has plans to improve some of these current limitations, but for now, if you want to combo co-op with your friends, this is the only way.

Tyrone Rodriguez, founder of BoI's publisher, Nicalis, stated on Twitter recently that he was less than pleased with the game's post-DLC performance on those platforms.  Given that developer Team Meat decided to completely rework The Binding Of Isaac after their displeasure with its original performance levels, the chances of them releasing an add-on that would result in a negative performance impact seem very slim.

Like so many of the dinosaurs in ARK, the Giganotosaurus was a real-life dinosaur found mainly in the area of the world we now call Argentina (the dinosaurs referred to it as "the place where that big-ass dinosaur lives.")

Developer Edmund McMillen promises the Afterbirth expansion makes The Binding of Isaac feel like a completely new game. A new Greed Mode re-balances things with a new risk/reward mechanic, along with brand new endings and a different final boss. 120 new items populate Isaac's possible roster, just the thing he needs to deal with new enemies and new daily quests/challenges. Also, there's another playable character in the form of Lilith, mother of demons.

Developer Edmund McMillen stated on his blog that he wishes to bring the game to all systems possible, but we will need to be a bit more patient while development is still underway. Also, there is no set release date for when the game opens up to those outside of the US (sorry!).
