Let’s be honest, one thing we’ve been in desperate need of has been a good superhero video game from the Marvel universe. After Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix teased some big news yesterday, they have officially announced that they will be working together to bring us an Avengers project. And it looks like the partnership will produce more than one game. Oh, and there’s already a teaser trailer for it.
Obviously, there isn’t much there; but something is better than nothing, right? While it doesn’t show us the actual heroes, the trailer is peppered with shots of Captain America’s shield, Thor’s Hammer, and Iron Man’s crumpled hand. The video ends with the game’s slogan: Reassemble. So, I think it’s safe to assume that the game takes place after Captain America: Civil War. But with the world looking dark and menacing in the trailer, they’re going to have to set their differences aside.
Square Enix will be teaming up with Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider) and Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex: Mankind Divided) to work on the new project. With the wild success of the companies action-adventure games, I’m pretty confident the Avengers are in good hands. While this is a big step forward on the Marvel gaming front, don’t get too excited. A release date has not been set for the titles, but Square Enix has promised to release more info in 2018. However, they did say that we could expect the titles to be released over the next couple of years.
While this isn’t the first time we’ve been promised an Avengers game, the trailer looks incredibly promising. There are plenty of Marvel titles coming out over the next year to keep you busy until we can get some more info on the games. Insomniac is working hard to bring us a new Spiderman title while Telltale Games announced a Guardians of the Galaxy series at the Video Game Awards a few months back.
