by Brendan M. Allen

Coming next year, Marvel will release an all-new Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game, beginning with an introductory Playtest Rulebook that will put the Marvel Universe in the hands of Marvel and tabletop RPG fans everywhere.

Building on decades of thrilling characters and stories from Marvel Comics, the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game: Playtest Rulebook will unveil a thrilling glimpse into the full scope of the Marvel Multiverse. Players will finally be able to take on the roles of Marvel’s most famous superheroes, or create entirely new ones, to fight some of the most dangerous supervillains in the Marvel Universe.

Packed with illustrations from Marvel’s comic book artists, the Playtest Rulebook will include full profiles for fans to become their favorite Avengers, mutants, and other heroes, including:

  •       Spider-Man
  •       Black Panther
  •       Captain America
  •       Thor
  •       Captain Marvel
  •       Ms. Marvel
  •       Wolverine
  •       Storm
  •       And many more

Written and co-designed by Matt Forbeck, the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game: Playtest Rulebook will introduce players to the all-new D616 System, an accessible and easy-to-learn system for newcomers to tabletop RPGs and a natural evolution for those familiar with the most popular tabletop role-playing games on the market. Use Might, Agility, Resilience, Vigilance, Ego, and Logic to win the day, and discover your true abilities as you face impossible odds.

“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!” 

Marvel and tabletop RPG fans who pick up and play the Marvel Playtest Rulebook will have an opportunity to help shape the game with a chance to offer feedback on the rules before its full release in 2023. More details will be coming soon.

The Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game: Playtest Rulebook will be available in Spring 2022 at your local comics shop and book stores. Stay tuned for more information.
