As spotted by Evan Filarca on Twitter (via PC Gamer) a since-revised E3 Coliseum show listing for the game seemed to reveal elements of what’s in store from the Crystal Dynamics game. Here’s that original description in full:
“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 mentions of “continuous” single player and co-op, combining powers as a team, and customisable heroes is giving me a Destiny-meets-Injustice vibe that I’m entirely OK with.
Beyond that title, this description marks more or less all the concrete new information we have about the Square Enix-published game at this point, but for everything else we’ve learned since its very first tease, we’ve got you covered.
We’ll learn more at Square Enix’s E3 conference on Monday June 10, and then even more than that at the E3 Coliseum panel taking place on Tuesday June 11.
