Developer Netmarble announced the upcoming Marvel Future Revolution at PAX East, the follow-up to its successful Marvel Future Fight. This time, players will be able to explore an open world using one of eight popular Marvel heroes — wearing a variety of fun and weird costumes — as they battle some of their nemeses. Here’s everything we know so far about Marvel Future Revolution and what you can expect.
Marvel Future Revolution is a collaboration between Netmarble and Marvel that was announced at PAX East 2020. The two have combined to create an open-world mobile game. Marvel Future Revolution is actually the first open-world action RPG that Marvel has on mobile. Marvel notes the name’s importance because it’s meant to be an evolving live-service title for years to come. Netmarble has a post-launch map planned out that includes new regions, new characters, and new content.
Story and setting
Written by Marvel’s own Marc Sumerak, Future Revolution features its own original story and takes place on what’s being called Primary Earth, the place where multiple universes converged after Hank Pym and Tony Stark failed to stop the collision. With this convergence comes multiverse variants of superheroes, who gather together to form the Omega Flight collective.
At launch, its playable characters will include Captain America, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Star-Lord, Iron Man, Black Widow, and Storm. With heroes, however, come villains. Right now, we know that we’ll be battling Green Goblin, Red Goblin, Red Skull, Baron Maredo, and M.O.D.O.K. It’s up to us as members of Omega Flight to figure out what these supervillains are up to and put a stop to it before it’s too late.
Regions in Marvel Future Revolution include the Hydra Empire, New Stark City, Midgardia, Sakaar, and Xandearth.
Being an open-world action RPG, it will control like you’d expect from console titles. Aside from its main campaign, players will also be treated to a few different multiplayer modes: Blitz/Raid, Special Operations, Omega War, and the Dark Zone. Blitz and Special Operations both support four players, Omega War is 10v10 PvP, and the Dark Zone is a real-time free-for-all combat area that supports up to 50 players. It’s unknown at this time if it will support some of the best mobile controllers.
For those interested in cosmetics, each character will have over 400 million (yes, you read that right) unique costume combinations.
Marvel hasn’t announced a release date for Marvel Future Revolution just yet, but it’s expected sooner rather than later. Players can pre-register for it now on the Google Play Store.
