Marvel has announced a brand new, free-to-play game. Marvel Games is developing Marvel Rivals alongside NetEase. Described as Overwatch in the Marvel Universe, the new game will launch with a huge lineup of heroes and villains. Even more will be added in later updates. Check out the trailer for yourself. 



The initial lineup of characters includes Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Groot, Hulk, Iron Man, Loki, Luna Snow, Magik, Magneto, Mantis, Namor, Peni Parker, Rocket Raccoon, Scarlet Witch, Spider-Man, Storm, Star-Lord and The Punisher. The game is a cooperative, team-based PVP shooter. Players can assemble a squad of heroes and villains while battling with unique superpowers. It all takes place across a lineup of destructible maps from across the Marvel Multiverse. The game is being developed for PC by NetEase. The studio previously worked on franchises such as Call of Duty and Battlefield. Jay Ong, Head of Marvel Games, had this to say about it. 


“Marvel Rivals is one of our most ambitious game development projects. Since the conceptualization of the game and throughout our collaboration, our Marvel team has poured our hearts and souls into this project, and we are thrilled to work with the incredible team at NetEase Games to help deliver the ultimate Super Hero team-based PVP shooter.” 


Here is the synopsis for Marvel Rivals 


“Marvel Rivals features a storyline crafted by the NetEase writing team where the merciless clash between the tyrannical dictator Doctor Doom and his future counterpart from the year 2099 has forced countless universes to collide in the Timestream Entanglement, creating new worlds and crises still unknown. Now, Super Heroes and Super Villains from across the multiverse must fight together and against one another as disparate groups seek to defeat both Dooms before one achieves domination of these realities. Familiar faces become newfound foes while former enemies become the greatest of allies in Marvel Rivals!”


“We are overjoyed to bring Marvel Rivals to players around the world. We have always loved Marvel’s universe and its characters, and we are so excited to be developing this game,” said the Marvel Rivals Producer Stephen Wu. “This is the game we want to make, and we feel very lucky to be the team who made all of this come true.”


“NetEase Games is excited to collaborate with Marvel Games to deliver a thrilling, fast-paced cooperative gameplay experience featuring all of your favorite Super Heroes,” said Ethan Wang, Senior Vice President, NetEase. “This partnership with Marvel Games continues our commitment to build world class development teams and reach global audiences with cutting edge experiences.”


Marvel Rivals is set to release sometime this year.
