Marvel and Square Enix have joined hands for a new Avengers game, which is being developed by Crystal Dynamics, the team behind all the new Tomb Raider games.
This collaboration has gotten us excited considering the awesome work that was done by Crystal Dynamics in the Rise of the Tomb Raider, which featured a great story, fantastic presentation, and solid combat.
The Avengers Project announcement trailer doesn’t reveal a lot about the project, but Marvel has promised it will be revealing a lot more about the project and other games in 2018 making this trailer a very early tease. The trailer doesn’t show off much, except Iron Man’s gauntlet, Captain America’s shield, and Thor’s hammer.
Marvel says that the Avengers project is a perfect example of how the company is now considering games as a key part of the landscape for Marvel storytelling, alongside comics, television and film. Square Enix on the other hand said that the company is banking on its award-winning development studios and Marvel’s extraordinary storytellers to establish a new entertainment powerhouse.
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, notes the description of the YouTube video.
