Many of us are still reeling after watching Avengers: Endgame, but the superhero train isn’t stopping just yet. Square Enix recently announced that the worldwide reveal for their upcoming Avengers game will take place at E3 this year during their press conference, beginning on June 10th at 6:00 PM PST. Earlier today, however, Twitter user @EvanFilarca spotted something interesting on the E3 Coliseum website. PC Gamer originally reported on the story detailing that the website was updated with a description for a “Marvel’s Avengers Showcase” on June 11th from 1:00-1:30 PM PST, a listing that has since been removed.
Originally, the panel description for the upcoming Avengers game read:
“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.”
Based on the description, it seems that the upcoming Avengers game will feature four player co-op, with players taking control of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. We still don’t know what gameplay is going to look like, but it seems unlikely that the game is an open-world adventure as many were hoping for. Looking at Crystal Dynamic’s track record with the Tomb Raider games, it seems more likely that we will be getting a semi-open experience with a more linear story progression. We don’t know which of the Avengers will be included in the upcoming game, however, it’s safe to assume that we will at least get Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Hulk.
