Marvel Games has brought in another iteration of its cinematic universe, letting players play their favorite characters in the gaming world. Marvel Rivals is a brand new action-packed video game set in the Marvel universe.

This is a team-based player vs player (PvP) shooter. Players have the opportunity to assemble their own all-star squad of beloved Marvel superheroes.

The game offers destructible battlefields with a constantly changing environment for intense combat scenarios. There are tons of strategies and tactics that players can apply by combining the unique powers of their chosen heroes. These powers can then be combined with the whole team to unleash Team-Up skills.

While the game sounds exciting, many have also been wondering if it is available for free, or will players have to spend some money on it.

Is Marvel Rivals Free to Play?

To answer the burning question, yes, Marvel Rivals is a free-to-play game. The game will be initiating its closed alpha phase in May 2024, where a few select gamers will get the opportunity to play it.

Marvel Rivals will initially be exclusively available on PC through gaming platforms such as Steam and the Epic Games Store. But, the developers have expressed their interest in expanding to other platforms.

They are actively exploring potential releases with console-based mechanisms for gaming devices such as PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch in the future.

While it has been confirmed that the game will be free to play, it is believed that it will include in-game microtransactions, similar to other hero shooter games like Overwatch 2 and Paladins.

Most of these microtransactions may include a Battle Pass, premium cosmetics, unlockable skins, and the ability to obtain characters with premium currency.

Players will most likely be able to earn free currency in the game through simple methods such as playing matches or participating in tournaments. However, ultimately, the game is completely free to play. So, even if you do not want to purchase extra in-game items, you'll still be able to access it.
