Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game officially launches in 2023

Marvel will release a core rulebook and an adventure featuring Kang next summer.

Following the release of the “playtest rulebook” this past spring, Marvel has announced plans to release the core rulebook for their Marvel Multiverse table-top role-playing game next June. That’ll be followed by an adventure book titled The Cataclysm of Kang next July.

If you’re confused, don’t be — the previously released rulebook was essentially a beta test of the new gaming system, allowing Marvel to get feedback from players before releasing the final rules.

“We’re absolutely thrilled with the volume and quality of the feedback the narrators and players gave us on the Playtest Rulebook, and we truly took it to heart for in the core rulebook,” game co-designer Matt Forbeck told “We have a huge playtest update coming out soon that streamlines the game and makes it even easier to understand and play. I can’t wait for fans to try it out ahead of the full release of these books next summer!”

‘Marvel Multiverse’ tabletop RPG coming next year

Marvel will introduce the D616 System of play in 2022’s ‘Playtest Rulebook’ and look for fan feedback before the game’s official launch in 2023.

Marvel is getting back into role-playing games next year, as they’ve teamed up with author/game designer Matt Forbeck (Shotguns & Sorcery RPG, The Marvel Encyclopedia) to create the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game.

They’ll start with the “Playtest Rulebook,” which will define the rules of play — the cleverly titled “D616 System” — and include profiles so fans can play as their Marvel favorites or create their own Marvel hero. According to Marvel, they’ll be looking for feedback from fans on the playtest rules before the game’s full release in 2023.

“As a lifelong Marvel fan and gamer, this project is a dream come true,” Forbeck told “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!”
