Marvel Rivals is Coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, Unveiling New Characters, and Game Features in PlayStation State of Play


Jay Cochran - June 02, 2024
NetEase Games and Marvel Games unveiled new details and platforms for Marvel Rivals, the new Super Hero Team-Based PVP Shooter that lets players assemble an ever-evolving all-star squad of Super Heroes and Super Villains battling with unique super powers across a dynamic lineup of destructible maps from across the Marvel Multiverse. Marvel favorites Venom and Adam Warlock will be joining the all-star roster of 19 playable heroes battling in iconic Marvel locations from across the Multiverse, including the newly revealed TOKYO 2099: SPIDER-ISLANDS map. Unleash Venom to tap into the power of the symbiote and devour your enemies or swoop in as Adam Warlock and unleash the power of quantum magic, establishing a soul bond with your teammates to charge ahead or resurrect your entire team.

The game will be coming to PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S at launch in addition to PC. The first closed beta test for Marvel Rivals is scheduled for late July for all platforms including PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. This large-scale test will invite players in North America, Europe along with other regions with more details coming closer to the test. In addition, PlayStation beta testers will also get exclusive access to the "Scarlet Spider" cosmetic outfit when the game is officially launched.



In Marvel Rivals, players can look forward to choosing heroes split into three distinct roles based on their unique power inclinations: Vanguard, Duelist, and Strategist. They’ll be free to pick their preferred role and hero, teaming up with allies to create a versatile and dynamic lineup for battle. But that’s not all, as they’ll be able to reach a whole new level of team play collaboration with Team-Up Abilities, unleashing joint superpowers with their allies, tearing down the battlefield to win in exciting fights! Marvel Rivals is in development by a NetEase team composed of global talent that share a profound love for the Marvel universe and characters who previously worked on hit shooter franchises played by millions of players worldwide.

“With the confirmation of console platforms, NetEase Games is thrilled at the prospects to greatly expand the audience for Marvel Rivals,” said Ethan Wang, Senior Vice President, NetEase, Inc. “As we move closer to our closed beta phase, we look forward to direct community feedback and engaging with our players to create the best possible Super Hero experience.”

Marvel Rivals features a storyline crafted by the NetEase writing team in collaboration with Marvel Games, 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 conflicts still to be discovered. 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!

I would give it a try for sure, at least (in theory) it's more up to my liking than overwatch and TF2.

Inspection12e - 2024-03-28 @ 7:05 pm

lol at people saying looks like fornite. It's an overwatch/ team fortress type game not fortnite.

Lord_Scareglow - 2024-03-28 @ 4:20 pm

Basically looks like Fortnite mashed with Marvel Future Fight,

I'd probably play this for like 45 mins and then just lose interest.

AndyL - 2024-03-28 @ 1:35 pm

Yeah this thing is going to be silly.

MeGrimlock78 - 2024-03-27 @ 10:33 pm

I'm already tired of the voice overs, and I only watched about 40 seconds...

Is it like Marvel Fortnight, but with Team Ups? Interesting, I guess, but I'll stick with my PS2 X-Men Legends thank you very much.

memocromatico - 2024-03-27 @ 10:01 pm

While I'm not big on PvP... this looks interesting enough. It at least brought attention to Luna Snow who I had no idea existed and I'm a sucker for Ice Powers

tarot - 2024-03-27 @ 7:00 pm

They can keep this one. It was a instance dislike from me when I saw netease
