Marvel Future Revolution, Marvel’s first open world action RPG for mobile platforms, is now open for pre-registration worldwide.

Mobile game publisher Netmarble Corp. and Marvel Entertainment announced that pre-registration is now live for the new game starring iconic Marvel super heroes and super villains.

Marvel Future Revolution stars an array of world-famous characters in an original storyline with AAA-quality 3D graphics. The game is the second collaboration between the two companies, following the long-running hit mobile game Marvel Future Fight, enjoyed by more than 120 million people worldwide.

The game will immerse players in a gorgeous open world jam-packed with high-stakes action as they serve as the first line of defense to save the universe. 

In a virtual media event before the launch announcement, PhilStarLife heard directly from Danny Koo, Director of Product Development at Marvel, and Joe Lee, Executive Producer at Netmarble, about the game's storyline and what fans can expect from the game.

MARVEL Future Revolution's plot centers around the “Convergence”—a catastrophe spanning the multiverse in which multiple realities collide. The numerous Earths converge in the multiverse to form an entirely new “Primary Earth” filled with unique zones and missions to explore, such as the high-tech New Stark City, the dangerous Hydra Empire, the wild and rugged Sakaar, and many more. 

As agents of the newly formed “Omega Flight” Super Hero team, players will work together to battle an onslaught of Super Villains and defend Primary Earth from a never-ending series of threats. 

Eight playable super heroes, including Captain America, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Black Widow, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Star-Lord, and Storm, will be outfitted in an extensive collection of iconic costumes from throughout the Marvel Universe. 

According to Lee, Marvel Future Revolution will be something that gamers of all skill levels can look forward to playing.“We didn’t want this game to be for elite players only. We want this game to be a welcoming experience to the broader audience. If it has Marvel on it, that means we have to deal with fans all around the world, no matter if you’re a gamer or not,” Lee said.

To cater to beginners, the “Special Operations” or “fair mode” assures that gamers can level up their skills before battling it out against other players. Lee added that they’re “making sure that everything is intuitive and fun, intrinsically, as much as possible.”

The team was given the creative freedom to interpret the Marvel superheroes and craft a universe that is unique from the MCU films. The original, new adventure is written by Marc Sumerak, a well-known Marvel writer who has written comic books featuring Spider-Man, the Avengers and more.

“We take inspiration and source materials from the comics. We’ll pick the best location, best characters, best story, and we craft all-new experiences for players online. Whether you’re a fan of the comics, or MCU, this game will be familiar, but very fresh and different,” said Koo.

An exciting feature of the game is that superheroes will be highly customizable, with over 400 million costume combinations per hero to choose from. The unique costumes, hairstyles, weapons and more draw inspiration from decades of comic books, films, animated series, and new interpretations that fit the different mutltiverses in the game.

“Working with a world-class IP like Marvel has enabled us to roll out unparalleled mobile gaming experiences over the years, and Marvel Future Revolution will catapult franchise fans to an entirely new level,” said Simon Sim, president of Netmarble US in a statement. “The game promises a fun and engaging experience for Marvel diehards and casual mobile gamers alike, offering unique action RPG gameplay on a massive scale.”

Utilizing the Squad System, Marvel Future Revolution players will have the opportunity to level up and play as new characters. They’ll also be able to flex their Super Hero skills in various PvP (Player versus Player) modes, ranging from 1v1 matches up to 10v10 matches between high-level players. 

As players progress, multiplayer content will unlock, including Blitz, Special Operation, Raids, and more.

“From the gleaming spires of New Stark City to the shadowed alleyways of Hydra Empire, players around the globe will be thrilled with the vast vistas waiting for them to explore in the wild open world crafted by our friends at Netmarble,” said Bill Rosemann, VP of Creative, Marvel Games. “Whether you’re soaring through the skies as Storm or barreling through enemies as Captain America, players can live out their Super Hero dreams on an unprecedented scale filled with all the action, drama, humor, and fun that fans expect from Marvel.”

“Our ongoing collaboration with Netmarble has allowed us to bring the expansive worlds, exciting characters, and fan-favorite stories from the Marvel Universe to mobile gamers seamlessly,” said Danny Koo, director of Product Development, Marvel Games. “We are ecstatic to bring this revolutionary mobile game to fans around the world and can’t wait for everyone to experience it!” 

Global pre-registration is now open via the App Store and Google Play. Pledge to join the Omega Flight now to receive a variety of rewards at launch. Marvel Future Revolution will be available for iOS and Android devices as a free-to-play game at a later date. 

While the eight main characters selected will be immediately playable, the developers teased that they would be constantly pumping out something new. Since Marvel has a huge universe full of iconic characters and villains to choose from, fans can expect surprises in terms of new regions, characters, and hero progression in the future.
