Stepping Into a Competitive Arena

With the launch of Marvel Rivals, Marvel will be entering a highly competitive arena where one false move, like overcharging for an item, can lead to player scorn.

The multiplayer shooter genre is already home to several behemoths like Fortnite, Call of Duty Warzone, Overwatch, and Apex Legends, so Marvel Rivals will have its work cut out to stand out.
