After being announced to finally be revealed at Square Enix’s E3 press conference, more information has been revealed about Crystal Dynamics’ highly anticipated new title Marvel’s Avengers. It appears that the game will be featured during a panel at the E3 Coliseum.
The panel is officially called “Marvel’s Avengers Showcase” and is set to take place at 1 p.m. on Tuesday June 11. The original description of the panel mentions plenty of details that have yet to officially been revealed by Square Enix or Crystal Dynamics. However, since it was first discovered by PCGamer, the description of the panel has been updated to say, “Join Crystal Dynamics and Marvel Games for a Panel about Marvel’s The Avengers.”
The original description of the panel read as follows: “Embrace your powers and join key members of the development team at Crystal Dynamics and the creative team at Marvel Games as they talk exclusively about the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers. This is the defining Avengers gaming experience: an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay. Moderated by Andrea Rene, 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 most notable pieces of information garnered from this description is the fact that the game will have both single player and multiplayer co-op content. It also it allow for players to customize the heroes that they use. With the mention of “continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay” and hero customization, it’s starting to sound like this game may be a games as a service type game in the vein of Destiny or The Division. This would makes sense as last year Marvel stated that the game “will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come.” Thus, a games as a service type game would fit all this criteria.
With E3 only a few weeks away, eager fans won’t have to wait long to find out more information on Marvel’s Avengers.
