Original Story: Square Enix have announced a multi-game partnership with Marvel, beginning with a game based on The Avengers by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.
(That’s Marvel’s The Avengers, not the 60s TV series. Sorry, Diana Rigg fans.)
All we’ve got so far is what I noted above, courtesy of Square Enix’s Twitter account, plus a short teaser trailer. Said trailer and Tweet both make use of the word “Reassemble”, and imply that very bad things have happened to The Avengers themselves, what with Iron Man’s battered suit and Captain America’s discarded shield. Avengers Reassemble, perhaps?
You should be able to see both below, but we’ll update with more details as they swoop in to save the day. No confirmation of platforms or anything just yet, but I’d be rather surprised if this wasn’t heading PC-wards.
Update: The teaser is now available on YouTube, as you can see below. In addition, I’ve been told that the game will be based around an original story, will “introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come”, and that we’ll be hearing more about both this game and the other Marvel titles in 2018. The game itself is currently simply referred to as “The Avengers project” and Crystal Dynamics are heading up development, with Eidos Montreal “collaborating.”
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
