Marvel Rivals Full Roster & Locations Leaked

Marvel Rivals is currently in its Alpha stage, and with that, datamining has revealed the heroes coming to the game’s roster in the future.

Back in March 2024, NetEase revealed Marvel Rivals, a new contender in the hero shooter genre. The game has players step into the shoes of various Marvel heroes, both famous and lesser well-known, to fight against other players across various maps. At the beginning of May, the game entered its Alpha process, meaning players are able to try out the game in its current build. Because of this, dataminers have uncovered future heroes and locations coming to the game. Below, we provide the details on who you can expect to see coming to the Marvel Rivals roster in the future.

What Characters Are Joining The Marvel Rivals Roster?

It appears there are plans for over 20 future characters to be added to the Marvel Rivals roster. The details come from a dataminer named Miller Ross. Miller details on his X account (formerly Twitter) that there are character indexes for over 20 characters. In addition to the launch characters, Marvel Rivals would have over 39 playable characters in total. As the game’s narrative has Marvel characters from the Multiverse joining in the fight, it makes sense that many would be playable. Below is the list of Marvel heroes from the data mine leak that will be joining the game:

  • Adam Warlock
  • Black Widow
  • Blade
  • Captain America
  • Cloak and Dagger
  • Hawkeye
  • Human Torch
  • Invisible Woman
  • Iron Fist (Lin Lie variant)
  • Jeff the Landshark
  • Moon Knight
  • Mr. Fantastic
  • Psylocke
  • Squirrel Girl
  • The Thing
  • Thor
  • Ultron
  • Venom
  • Winter Soldier
  • Wolverine

Players should note although this is leaked information, there is no indication of a release date or order for the roster. The game seems to be mixing the iconic and B-list Marvel characters. Additionally, different variants of characters, like Iron Fist being Lin Lie, show that the game will lean into the Multiversal aspect when it comes to its roster.

What Locations Are Coming To Marvel Rivals?

Players can expect at least five new locations to be coming to Marvel Rivals in the future. In the same leak, location names were also discovered, and the maps look to cover various worlds of Marvel heroes. It seems NetEase is going the Overwatch route and developing worlds that associate with characters within the game but with a Multiverse twist. Although it is not a lot, so far, these are the five new map locations expected to come to Marvel Rivals:

  • Empire of Eternal Night
  • Hydra Erebus Base
  • Klyntar
  • Krakoa
  • The Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda

Some of the map choices are very unique and look to bring players to interesting locations. For example, the Krakoa map (if any relation to the Earth-616 Krakoa) will be players battling on a living island of the same name. Furthermore, seeing Kylntar in the leak is exciting as it is the planet of the Symbiotes, such as Venom and Carnage. Seeing just some of these locations gives promise that NetEase is looking to really dive into the rich lore of the Marvel world.

Unfortunately, for now, we just have to wait for it all to become a reality. Of course, while you wait, be sure to head over to our Guide Hub for more articles like this one.
