Sorry for posting this so late, but I was overwhelmed!!!
Marvel announced a game project with Square Enix!
There will be a game with all my favourite super heroes! It’ll be called “The Avengers Project” and will be released in 2018. And the second big news: Marvel cooperates with Square Enix, the company behind Final Fantasy! So it’s quiet clear that the graphic will be … MARVELous! The other two companies involved are Crystal Dynamics, known for “Tomb Raider”, and Eidos Montreal, famous for various games including “Deus Ex: Mankind Devided”.
Facts revealed so far:
But the best is yet to come. “The Avengers Project” will be a universe – kind of the Marvel cinematic universe, but now the Marvel gaming universe, so to speak. And it’s story will be told over several years – so there is not just one game but maybe a kind of storyline that continues and continues, just like the Marvel movies.
Which heroes will take part?
Well, that’s not told, yet. You can see weapons and gear of Thor, Iron Man and Captain America in the teaser, but the speaker also says that the time of heroes is over. So maybe we’ll get to know completely new heroes or – what I expect by now – they won’t do new movies for the New Avengers (like Hulkling, Kate Bishop Hawkeye, …) and tell their stories in the game instead. On the other hand, they close the trailer with #reassemble. We’ll see!
I’m sure the game will be something completly new – maybe it’ll combine the Tell Tales with a MMORPG. The only thing I’m afraid of is that it’ll be out for PC only, but, hey, Square Enix is involved, so there are chances it will come for PlayStation, too! Now I let mastermind and demigod Stan Lee have the last words:
What about you? Are you as curious as I am? Let me know in the comments below!
