Avengers Project

Post by Cable » 26 Jan 2017, 15:05

Square Enix released a trailer today to tease an Avengers game they will be working on

EDIT: I should note Square Enix is the publisher, not the developer. SE subsidiary Crystal Dynamics is actually making the game (developers of the recent Tomb Raider reboots)

This looks like it might be cool. It's being developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal (Tomb Raider and Deus Ex), and is apparently the first in a multi-game partnership between SE and Marvel. Sounds awesome.

The "if you're different you're dangerous" line sounded very X-Men like.

This looks like it could be good. This is probably a far going hope, but I'd love if the voice we heard was that of Danielle Cage of 20XX and have this game set in that future or something similar

How cool would it be if they had you pick between two canon superhero parents at the beginning of the game and then you played a create-a-character child with a mix of those powers? It would be difficult to pull off storywise (need slightly different dialogue for every character combination) but it would be awesome

Buried in this article is a revelation that while Crystal Dynamics is working on Avengers Project, Eidos will be working on another Guardians of the Galaxy game:

"Square Enix has already said it will not reveal anything more of the [Avengers] project until 2018. Could it also see release in 2018? It seems unlikely, considering how fresh the ink is on Marvel's deal. Back at Eidos Montreal, a small team is currently aiding Crystal Dynamics' Avengers project and, Eurogamer has heard, in the early stages of production on the second Marvel game based around Guardians of the Galaxy. This project will be lead by Eidos Montreal."

Kotaku's reporting that the next Deus Ex is being postponed indefinitely on account of this deal taking priority at Eidos Montreal.

Marvel. You have betrayed me.

EDIT: Well, more accurately: Square Enix, you have been the same meddling jackass of a publisher that you were while Mankind Divided was in development. The sooner you realize that your western studios are creating great work in spite of you, instead because of you, the happier we'll all be.

Release Date: May 21, 2020

Both great info and sad. I was hoping for more characters to be playable, but only 5: Cap, Tony, Natasha, Bruce, Thor

Which, I guess makes sense going with the MCU. Kind of wish they'd get Hawkeye in there.

This was a crushing disappointment. Its a game-as-service type title like Destiny or Anthem. Hard pass

We've got a little under a year until release. At some point the GaaS model has to put out a decent game right?

I'm hoping some of those models get updated because Cap, Thor, and Natasha all look bad.

It looks like the sixth character will be Hank Pym. The graphics definitely need some more polish and I'm not super into online co-op games (unless they're horror and then I stomach them for the scares).

After seeing the trailer it felt kind of underwhelming to me.

I enjoy online co-op if I can be in some kind of voice chat with friends while playing it.

I am not sure but I don’t think that they are going to change very much on the characters, I think it is intentionally that they don't look like the actors. Usually, Studios have to pay a fee to use the faces of actors, so maybe Crystal Dynamics altered so much that the faces in game are recognizable, but not the original ones.

They said that all added characters and areas will be free and that there will be no loot boxes or pay-to-win strategies. They're not supposed to be modeled after the MCU versions of the characters at all.

Yeah, I've no problem with them not looking like the MCU characters. Honestly, on a further look, I don't really mind Natasha or Thor. It's really Steve that bothers me to hell and back. His costume is bland and his model looks so damn generic.

They have also revealed there will be microtransactions to buy cosmetic items. Get out your wallet for those alternate costumes.

Alternate costumes won't bother me. I just don't want to buy anything to get ahead in the game.
