X-Men rEvolution is an X-Men Movieverse game set in contemporary New York City, shortly after the events of the first X-Men movie. With a movieverse backdrop, we both come unencumbered with years of convoluted comics canon, and also a slightly more real-world feel to the setting. Only slightly, though: we’re still running around New York playing mutants with superpowers; just without the aliens and magic.
Set just after Magneto’s failed attack on the city, the New York of rEvolution is a city that is shifting towards the darker edge of the spectrum, especially when it comes to life for mutants. With a game geared away from the highest edges of power ranges, we’re looking to explore not just the interactions between superpowers and combat, but the interplay between human nature, social justice, and a city where one wrong interaction could push it over the edge.
