Remember those days when we used to get video game versions of most of the superhero titles that released in theaters? Yeah, me too. It’s been awhile since developers have followed that trend, as most adaptations became quite unsuccessful, despite their being a few gems, such as the Spiderman titles which launched on the Xbox, PlayStation 2, and Gamecube.
But that’s besides the point. Superheros are BIG right now, probably bigger than they have been in awhile since most movies have been getting significantly better, and it seems video game developers are hopping on this hype train while there’s still time.
Square Enix has announced that they will be working with Marvel for several upcoming titles throughout the next few years, with an Avengers game seemingly being the first project that will be released. The team which will be responsible for the project is the same team that worked on the recent Tomb Raider games, Crystal Dynamics.
Square Enix released a short teaser trailer for the project, which featured a female narrator discussing about how the worlds still needs hero’s, with the hashtag #reassemble thrown into the end of the trailer. Based on the teaser trailer, it seems like the version of the Avengers that we will be receiving in this upcoming project, will be the brand new Avengers which Marvel has been actively revealing in their recent comics. This is mostly speculation though, and with a release window of Spring 2018, it sounds like we’ll have plenty more time to speculate as details will likely remain slim for the time being.
In the meantime, I highly recommend checking out the trailer as it will definitely get you excited for what it soon to come!
