Marvel Reveals First Hints At Avengers Game Concept With Crystal Dynamics


Game Informer has the story.

Quote:
Square-Enix and Marvel have been fairly quiet since announcing their partnership for an Avengers video game, but it seems the team has been assembled to get the game going.

In a news post on the Marvel blog, the Disney-owned comics giant outlined some of the talent brought to Crystal Dynamics to work on the new game.

"This time, the heroes are assembling again behind-the-scenes with award-winning developer Crystal Dynamics adding 15 top industry talent to The Avengers project in January alone," the post reads. "The talent includes Shaun Escayg, former Naughty Dog creative director, and Stephen Barry, a 27 year games vet from EA and Visceral Games."

The recruitment of this team was revealed by Crystal Dynamics the other day, but Marvel added some details that can be drawn from.

"The Avengers project, featuring a completely new and original story, will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come. The project will be jammed pack with characters, environments, and iconic moments that will thrill Marvelites."

This confirms that, much like the Sony Spider-Man game, the Avengers title will be an original title. The line about a universe gamers can play in for years to come seems to work in concert with the rumors of the Avengers title being a third-person online action adventure title.

Crystal Dynamics has been kicking a lot of ass lately so the only problem with this game I have is the waiting.

Everything I've seen about this make me think it's going to go the DCUO route. The existing heroes are gone/outnumbered/drunk/masturbating/whatever and you need to create a new hero to take up the fight. I'm done with that. I did it in Champions Online and City of Heroes. Call me an uncreative, mentally flaccid old man all you want, but I want to play AS my favorite super heroes.

Damn, I miss Marvel Heroes Online.

Crystal Dynamics' last two Lara Croft titles give me all the confidence in the world they could make an interesting game for the Marvel Universe to compete with Rocksteady's Batman series. The hard part will be making a multiple character entry to start. How they will balance the gameplay and story for a game for Iron Man, Thor and Hulk to match that of Hawkeye and Black Widow.
