The information comes from an E3 Coliseum listing that has since been revised to remove information about Marvel’s Avengers. However, thanks to this screenshot, we have learned that the gameplay should be action-adventure oriented, feature cinematic storytelling, and include both single-player, as well as four player co-op multiplayer. Below is the exact text from the now retracted revised:
“Embrace your powers and join key members of the development team at Crystal Dynamics and the creative team at Marvel Games as they talk exclusively about the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers. This is the defining Avengers gaming experience: an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay. Moderated by Andrea Rene, assemble in teams up to four players, master extraordinary abilities, customize your heroes to fit your playstyle, and combine powers to defend an ever-expanding world under constant threat.”
Marvel’s Avengers was first announced in 2017, with the promise of more details releasing in 2018. After remaining whisper quiet for over two years, it looks like we will finally learn more about what this game is going to be. Square Enix initially announced the game as part of a partnership with Marvel that includes a multi-game licensing and publishing deal.
Having seen the success of recent games like the Insomniac developed Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel is looking to partner with serious developers and publishers to make high quality video games set in the super hero universes we all know and love.
Stay tuned as we learn more about Marvel’s Avengers in the coming weeks.
