Square Enix’s Avengers Project to be Announced at E3

First reported by ComicBook we may have an Avengers game on the way but they’ve taken someone over at 4Chan’s word for it on this particular story. Usually (only usually) thou in this case 4Chan rumours seem to have some credit when it comes to gaming rumours and this one is exciting indeed.

Cutting to the short of it: “The Avengers Project” is Avengers: Ultimate Alliance. But it’s not just Ultimate Alliance 3, it’s a full reboot with the name on it (think something like the new God of War, minus the story continuity: similar name, totally new gameplay/story structure). That’s the reason why the tagline of the first teaser was “Reassemble”, to hint at it being a reboot. This is also why the previous Ultimate Alliance games got uprezed recently for current-gen.

The game takes place from the perspective of multiple Avengers after a cataclysmic incident broke the team apart (think more Dissassembled than Civil War), but there are 3 which are the core focus: Captain America, Iron Man, and Scarlet Witch (who you heard in the trailer). They aren’t the ONLY playable characters, but they are the leads of the story. Gameplay wise think a mix between Uncharted and Infamous

 It’ll also have connections putting it in both the same world as the PS4 Spider-Man game(that Sanctum Sanctorum appearance in still images was not just for fun), as well as Eidos Montreal’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel Games wants in on that shared universe idea that have made the films literal billions of dollars.

We won’t have long to wait as on June 11th all will be revealed.
