Is Marvel Rivals a free to play game or will you have to purchase it to play? Here's everything we currently know about this highly anticipated new hero shooter.

Marvel Rivals is an arena shooter that OW2 fans are excited about, with many already calling it the “Overwatch killer.” The game features a variety of popular characters from the Marvel Universe, with famous characters like Spider-Man and Iron Man among them.

With Marvel Rivals' closed alpha beginning in May 2024, many players are wondering if the game will be free-to-play.

Here is the answer.

Will Marvel Rivals be free?

Yes, Marvel Rivals will be free to play when it releases.

Marvel Rivals will only be available on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. However, the developers have stated that they are “actively exploring potential releases on other platforms.” This means that the free-to-play title could come to PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch consoles in the future.

Although the game is free-to-play, we expect it to feature in-game microtransactions like a Battle Pass, premium cosmetics, and unlockable skins. Players may also be able to unlock characters with premium currency. After all, other hero shooters like Overwatch 2 and Paladins offer these services.

It's also likely that Marvel Rivals will allow you to earn free in-game currency just by playing matches.

Either way, Marvel Rivals will be completely free to play, so you'll be able to try the game when it releases later this year.
