Battleworld is last remaining bit of reality in the Marvel multiverse - a patchwork planet made up of the remains of decimated universes. And the titles which carry the Battleworld moniker will feature wars between the various sectors.
“If you want the full story of what’s happening across the surface of this new planet, Battleworld branded titles are for you,” said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso in a press release. “Who polices Battleworld? How do the various domains interact? What happens when those domains go to war? What strange, never-before-seen creatures inhabit this world? What familiar faces will make appearances? Fans who want to fully understand how each sector interacts with the others can’t miss out on these books!”
According to Marvel, titles carrying the Battleworld banner will focus on the "interworking and interaction of all the domains now fused together throughout the one and only remaining planet! The Secret Wars are waged as the last remaining fragments of dead universes fight for survival. Who rules these domains? Who comes out on top? Who lives? Who dies?"
Battleworld joins the previously announced Last Days as groupings of titles under the larger Secret Wars banner. There is a third umbrella banner yet to be announced (but presumably Friday), as well as the specific titles that'll be a part of each grouping.
“The inner machinations of Secret Wars happen here,” added Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel in the press release. “Battleworld branded titles will be clearly marked through the Marvel Previews solicits as well as with well distinguished cover trade dress, this way both retailers and fans will know what they’re getting. Think of these as the new core monthly titles."
