SALT LAKE CITY — Marvel’s upcoming “Avengers” video game was reannounced this week, and now we know a little bit more about the game.
“Marvel’s Avengers” was first announced via a teaser in January 2017 from Square Enix, but went dark until recently. According to GameSpot, a new leak on the Electronic Entertainment Expo website accidentally revealed the game’s core details earlier than expected before getting pulled down.
The leak apparently reveals a “Marvel’s Avengers Showcase” that will feature behind-the-scenes information from developers at Crystal Dynamics — the studio making the game — and Marvel Games. The leak also confirms the game will allow up to four players to step in the shoes of various heroes.Comment on this story
“This is the defining Avengers gaming experience: an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay,” the description read. “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."
The game’s previous trailer — which can be seen on YouTube — showed Captain America’s shield, Iron Man’s repulsor glove, Thor’s hammer and Bruce Banner’s glasses lying in a collapsed building. The trailer ends with the hashtag #Reassemble, implying players will help the Avengers bounce back after a defeat.
According to the game’s Twitter page, more details will be revealed at Square Enix’s E3 press conference on June 10 at 6 p.m. PT.
