Coming next year, Marvel will release an all-new Marvel Multiverse Tabletop 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 glimpse into the full scope of the Marvel Multiverse.
Players will finally be able to take on the roles of Marvel’s most famous Super Heroes – or create entirely new ones – to fight some of the most dangerous Super Villains in the Marvel Universe… again.
This isn’t Marvel’s first foray into the tabletop RPG genre. In 1984, the Marvel Super Heroes tabletop RPG was first published by TSR – the same people behind Dungeons & Dragons. It was revised in 1986 with an advanced edition.
Unfortunately, the game system did not find as much success due to licensing issues and a variety of other reasons.
The new Marvel Multiverse Tabletop RPG will be packed with illustrations from Marvel’s comic book artists.
The Playtest Rulebook will include full profiles for fans to become their favourite 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 award-winning and New York Times best-selling author Matt Forbeck (The Marvel Encyclopedia, Dungeons & Dragons: Endless Quest), the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game: Playtest Rulebook will introduce players to the all-new D616 System.
The D616 System is designed to be 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 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 of 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 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!
