Yesterday Marvel teased its fans over social media to save the date for today, promising a big announcement and boy, is it ever! Marvel announced they have joined Square Enix in a multi-year, multi-game partnership that will start with The Avengers project and there is of course a teaser for it which you can gaze your eyes upon below!
Right now what you hear are the minds of many fans around the world exploding. Marvel and one of the most beloved game developers of all time teaming up to being one of the most iconic superhero groups to the gaming scene in a fully fledged game. Helping out both parties are Crystal Dynamics, the people behind the Tomb Raider series, and Deus Ex developer, Eidos-Montréal.
Marvel said in their announcement of the game that,
“The Avengers project is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise. Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come. More details on The Avengers project and other games will be announced in 2018.”
The last time we heard about a big Avengers game coming out it was one that was to be released alongside the 2012 film, but was based off the Secret Invasion story, meaning you could have played as the Hulk in first person and put a good hurting on some Skrulls.
But let’s get back to the multi-game part, this could lead to so many possibilities as to who we might play as or what type of games we’ll get with the Marvel Universe down the line! It’s maddening to think about this!
