Marvel is expanding the franchise to a tabletop role-playing game called Marvel Multiverse, which is set to launch in 2022 in the form of a playtest rulebook designed to allow players to test the all-new D616 game system as they take on the roles of Marvel’s most famous Super Heroes and villains.
Packed with illustrations from Marvel’s amazing comic book artists, the rulebook will include full profiles for fans to become their favorite Avengers, mutants, and other heroes, including:
- Black Panther
- Captain America
- Captain Marvel
- Ms. Marvel
The rulebook is written and co-designed by award-winning and New York Times best-selling author Matt Forbeck (The Marvel Encyclopedia, Dungeons & Dragons: Endless Quest). As mentioned previously, it uses the 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.
“As a lifelong Marvel fan and gamer, this project is a dream come true,” said Forbeck in today’s press release. “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!”
Below is an early look at an image that will presumably feature in the rulebook:
