MARVEL MULTIVERSE ROLE-PLAYING GAME tabletop RPG announced with official rulebook coming next year.
Marvel fans and tabletop RPG fans will soon get to experience their favorite comic universe with all its dice-slinging glory. The newly-announced Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing-Game will give players the chance to suit up as their favorite Marvel heroes, or create their own heroes and take on the biggest villains in comics.
The tabletop game is set to release in 2023, but the official rulebook which is called the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game: Playtest Rulebook, will be sold beginning March 2022. The book is written and co-designed by Matt Forbeck, author of The Marvel Encyclopedia and Dungeons & Dragons: Endless Quest, and will introduce players to the game’s D616 System which is named after Earth-616. What the D616 system is, we do not know, but the press release described it as a “natural evolution” to existing tabletop rules that will be “simple and easy-to-learn” for newcomers to the genre.
“As a lifelong Marvel fan and gamer, this project is a dream come true,” said Forbeck. “Fortunately, after writing a couple editions of The Marvel Encyclopedia and designing tabletop games professionally for over 30 years, I feel ready to help make this the best Marvel TTRPG experience ever. I can’t wait for everyone to have the chance to play it!”
In true comic form, the rulebook will come packed with what the press release says is “decades of thrilling characters and stories from Marvel Comics.” The rulebook will feature illustrations from a variety of Marvel’s comic book artists and include profiles that will let Marvel fans become their favorite Avengers, mutants, or other heroes, which includes:
- Black Panther
- Captain America
- Captain Marvel
- Ms. Marvel
- And many more!
Marvel hopes that with the release of the rulebook they will give fans a chance to give feedback on the game before its full release the following year. More information on the Playtest Rulebook will be arriving this fall.
