Gazillion Entertainment announced Monday that its PC action-MMORPG, Marvel Heroes, will transition from closed to open beta this weekend to celebrate the release of Iron Man 3.

The Marvel Heroes open beta will start Friday, May 3 at 10 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. PST and run until 1 p.m. EST on Monday, May 6.

As part of the open beta weekend, Gazillion is mixing up the starter heroes to include Iron Man along with fellow Avengers Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk and Thor.

Those interested in trying Marvel Heroes out should head to the game's website and create an account if they already haven't. No beta key will be required, just an existing account.

Based on previous experience, expect the download for Marvel Heroes to last a couple of hours unless Gazillion Entertainment has upgraded its distribution network. Once in, player should find a Diablo like experience set in the Marvel universe.

We have been playing the beta when we can the last few weeks and have noticed an improvement in the performance in the game in regards to lag and graphics. An open beta event should provide a true test for free-to-play title.
