Marvel Rivals has iconic heroes and villains teaming up to duke it out for domination of points across familiar maps based on comic book locations. After getting a closer look at the hero shooter’s gameplay, game modes, and characters, players are wondering when they can finally play the game for themselves. Here’s what we know about the release date.

With teams of six combining abilities to take down enemy teams for control of the point, many FPS fans are comparing Marvel Rivals to Overwatch 2. Despite the similarities, including very familiar map layouts, gamers still have high hopes for Marvel Rivals. The concept of Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Star Lord teaming up in Tokyo 2099 is just far too hype.

But when is the game finally coming out?
