Though it is still in the development stages, Patrick Mahony and all you geeks might be interested in knowing that the ultimate Avengers game might be just over the horizon. The rumblings have just started, but both Square Enix and Marvel seem to have something epic up their collective sleeves.
It was just a sneak peek, but how would you react to seeing bits and pieces of your favorite super heroes strewn about the planet? Imagine seeing Iron’s Man’s arm or Thor’s hammer in a pile to the left. What if Captain America’s vaunted shield was cracked and tossed like yesterday’s garbage on a pile to the right?
Apparently, Square Enix and Marvel are planning to breakdown our favorite Avengers (metaphorically) and give us the opportunity to resurrect the very people we need to save the planet.
Recently posted on YouTube, the teaser starts with a deep and dark mystery voice that reminds how important our super heroes are to our survival. From there, the viewer is hit with one ominous word, “Reassemble.”
Make no mistake about it, that very word could have many different meanings. That, in fact, is the mystery behind this new Marvel project. It’s quite possible that our Avengers have been set apart by some level of dissention, perhaps instigated by evil forces. If that were the case, it will be the players responsibility to get the super group back together just in time to save the planet from evildoers.
It’s reasonable to have high expectations, given the way the game is being introduced amid a cloud of mystery. Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics of Tomb Raider and Deus Ex fame are signed onto the project. If able to create the perfect storm with a intriguing storyline as described above, this could end up being a Marvel game for the ages.
