Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix officially revealed Marvel's Avengers yesterday, promising a full reveal on the game during the Square Enix Live E3 2019 on June 10. The game, which was first announced in 2017 as the Avengers Project, will very likely be a third-person cover-based action-adventure game, as we reported in September 2017, based on the developer's job listings.
We also speculated yesterday that Marvel's Avengers will most likely "include some sort of multiplayer mode, or at the very least a co-op mode, since this is a supergroup game after all." It looks like this bit of guesswork was quite accurate, now that an E3 Coliseum leak has revealed some details on the upcoming game. The leak was spotted by Marvel fan Evan Filarca and shared on Twitter earlier today.
As you can see, Marvel's Avengers will be an epic action-adventure with cinematic storytelling and continuous single-player and co-op gameplay where players will be able to assemble in squads up to four players, combining powers and abilities to defend the world from supervillains and their minions.
This actually sounds like a pretty cool game, and I'm not even a fan of the Avengers. A great co-op experience on top of a robust single-player campaign, plus maybe another co-op modes just for combat, sounds exactly what would make a great Marvel game. And if the single-player campaign of Marvel’s Spider-Man (Our Review) is anything to go by, Marvel just might have a very successful title in their hands, though Marvel's Avengers is being handled by a different studio entirely. Like Marvel's Spider-Man however, Marvel's Avengers is not expected to be attached to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead, it will focus on telling a standalone story by the developer, Crystal Dynamics in this case.
We'll learn more about Marvel's Avengers on June 10, and you can stay tuned to TechRaptor for our E3 coverage, which will be as comprehensive as possible.
