Fantasy Flight Games and Marvel have teamed up for a brand new living card game in Marvel Champions, and now we finally know when the anticipated game will hit stores. Fantasy Flight announced the date on social media, writing "Attention, Avengers! The Marvel Champions Core Set will be available on November 1st!". That's right around the corner, so at least fans don't have to wait too much longer to try it out. Marvel Champions' core set will come with five heroes out of the box, including Spider-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, and Iron Man, who players will take control of as they look to stop Ultron, Rhino, Klaw, and more of Marvel's villains from completing their latest schemes.
Marvel Champions is for 1 to 4 players, and each hero will not only come with their impressive abilities from the comics but also an alter-ego that players will need to use strategically throughout the game. Each alter-ego has their own unique skills that you'll need to call on in your battles, but you can only flip that card over once per turn, so it's on you to figure out what skills the situation calls for in the moment.
You'll also have allies to call upon in battle and the villains come with henchmen of their own as well, so very quicly the battle will feature plenty of moving parts, and you'll need to utilize all of your advantages to take the villains down.
