Munich, Germany – March 13, 2012. Marvel's Super Heroes will speak French: The localized version of Marvel Super Hero Squad Online is now available to fans in French-speaking regions of Europe. Following the official launch by ProSiebenSat.1 Digital in November, the free-to-play Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMO) based on the internationally renowned "Super Hero Squad“ franchise of the legendary comic book heroes from Marvel is now also available completely in French. French-speaking fans can now register free of charge at www.super-hero-game.fr.

"Fans of the Marvel Universe, MMO gamers, and comic book readers were thrilled by the official launch of Marvel Super Hero Squad Online," says Markus Büchtmann, Managing Director of ProSiebenSat.1 Games. "We didn't want to keep our French community, which has been loyal to our games for so long, waiting anymore."

Varied gameplay for everyone

As in the other versions, players of the French version of Marvel Super Hero Squad Online take on the roles of their favorite Super Heroes such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, or Thor, and prevent evil Super Villains like Magneto or Docteur Fatalis from taking control. The varied gameplay allows players to embark on action-packed missions individually or in teams of up to four players, in all available languages! Fans can discover additional areas online with their friends, take part in exciting, strategic collector's card duels, enjoy the entertaining challenges of arcade games, and explore and individually design their own headquarters! The challenge mode provides players new to the MMO genre and experienced gamers alike with an additional incentive, as certain quests are rewarded with heroes or tickets for the prize wheel.

New heroes available regularly

Once registered, every player can don the outfit of Thing, Cyclops, Falcon, or Ms. Marvel. Premium members of Marvel Super Hero Squad Online have even more choices: These players can access exclusive characters in advance, such as Iron Man or Black Suit Spider-Man. The French-speaking audience will also be delighted with the cast of more than 40 additional well-known characters currently available from the in-game shop. With more than 5,000 heroes in the Marvel Universe, Super Hero Squad Online regularly adds new heroes!
