Marvel and Kabam announced a brand new mobile game titled Marvel Realm of Champions: Battleworld Rising at New York Comic Con.
The game is described as a real-time mobile RPG that will allow players to pick between a number of Marvel-inspired factions called ‘Houses.’ From there they will be able to team up with other players in real-time action arena combat against NPC enemies as well as other players. The houses include the House of Iron, Spider-Guild, Gamma Horde, Patriot Garrison, Pyramid X and more.
Here’s the official description:
“MARVEL Realm of Champions is a bold new imagining of the Marvel Universe that transports players to the Battleworld, a forbidden planet behind the Space-Time Barrier, where its uneasy peace is disrupted by the death of Maestro, the God-King. With alliances between the Houses, including the House of Iron (Iron Man), Spider-Guild (Spider-Man), Patriot Garrison (Captain America), Pyramid X (X-Men), and more, now shattered, it is pure war across the land for complete global domination. As a Champion aligned with one of the Houses, players will work together, or fight each other to gather resources for their faction across the Battleworld.
After outfitting their Champion with Super Hero-inspired gear, players will ally with their friends to explore the Marvel-inspired landscapes such as high-tech cities built on Stark Technologies, fantasy-inspired Asgardian battlefields and more. On the map, players can battle it out in localized battle arenas across a variety of Player vs. Environment (PvE) and Player vs. Player (PvP) modes, with each battle contributing to the larger conflict between Houses. By strategically using character class abilities against enemies for better teamwork and maximum effect, players can live out their fantasy of becoming their own Marvel Super Hero, forge diplomatic alliances, and lead their House to victory on the Battleworld in MARVEL Realm of Champions.”
Kabam’s Creative Director for Marvel Realm of Champions provides a little bit more clarification, “While MARVEL Contest of Champions continues to grow with years of content down the pipeline, MARVEL Realm of Champions will take players from the Battlerealm’s one-on-one duels to the Battleworld’s global skirmishes for complete territorial control in the name of their House.”
The game will differentiate itself from Kabam’s mobile fighting game Contest of Champions by allowing players to create their own superhero in the Marvel Universe. Bill Rosemann, Marvel Games VP of Creative elaborates, “With MARVEL Contest of Champions celebrating its fifth huge year, it’s thrilling to see Kabam expand their ongoing story and invite players to become their own Marvel Super Hero to vie for the fate of Battleworld.” He adds, “From the gleaming skyscrapers of the House of Iron to the webbed alleyways of the Spider-Guild, both dedicated players and casual fans alike have an entire planet waiting for them to explore and conquer. Whose House will you choose?”
