Yesterday Marvel released a simple picture letting fans know to tune in today at 10:00 AM for a special announcement. Most people believed it would be a trailer for Thor: Ragnarok but what it came to be caught everybody off guard. Marvel has partnered with big video game company Square Enix (Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy) for multiple games. So far we got a small teaser for the first game they’ll be releasing, currently only titled The Avengers Project. Check out the teaser below!
For a VERY long time people have been waiting for a good Avengers game, like Batman Arkham good. I’m hoping it will be, the potential is incredible. In the trailer we get a nod to the 4 (possibly 5) main film Avengers. Thor, The Hulk, Iron Man and Captain America. Maybe Black Widow is the one narrating?
She says that people are saying that the time for heroes are over, and while we get a nod to The Avengers, it looks like they’re in trouble. Bruce Banner’s glasses are broken and you can hear The Hulk yelling in the background. Thor’s hammer is lost in some rubble. Iron Man’s Repulsor Beam (hand blaster thingy)’s light is fading and on the cold wet ground. And at last we see Captain America’s shield getting welded on. Narrator says they need to #Reassemble and the trailer ends.
In the description box underneath the YouTube video Marvel releases a little more information about the game.
“The Avengers project is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise. Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come. More details on The Avengers project and other games will be announced in 2018″
“Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix announced today a multi-year, multi-game partnership, leading with the reveal of The Avengers project. This newly established partnership pairs the creative minds at Marvel and Square Enix for one of the most powerful alliances in interactive entertainment.”
Looks like we’ll be waiting until 2018 for this potentially amazing game. 2017 just began and we’ll be waiting forever. Good thing this year we’ll have a ton of amazing Marvel movies releasing to help us cope.
