Marvel has announced the release window for its upcoming Marvel Multiverse RPG, along with details about the game's first adventure.
The Core Rulebook for Marvel Multiverse RPG will be released in June 2023, while the first adventure book, The Cataclysm of Kang will be released in July 2023.
It offers the option of either creating heroes that progress from street-level heroes to "cosmic champions" or choosing a different set of heroes to face off in the six interlocking adventures in the book.
Marvel also announced plans to release a revised playtest that addresses much of the feedback surrounding archetypes and ranks.
Instead of using an existing ruleset, the new game uses a custom-made "d616" system built on players rolling three six-sided dice when they make a check.
One of the three dice is called a "Marvel Dice" and can trigger a "Fantastic roll" with good consequences whenever it rolls a one.
More significant changes are coming in the next playtest, given that many players have pushed for a less convoluted system for character creation.
