Marvel and Square Enix have signed a multi-game partnership, starting with The Avengers project. The game is being developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.

The Avengers project will introduce players to a completely original story, but with all the characters, environments, and “iconic moments” fans have come to know and look for in every project about The Avengers. If the trailer is anything to go by, then we’re guessing we’ll see The Hulk, Thor, Iron Man and Captain America.

The trailer also suggests some kind of a catastrophe has lead to the disbandment of The Avengers, and now players will “reassemble” them once again. The game is set in a “universe gamers can play in for years to come”, so this is probably the first in a series of games.

More details about The Avengers project, as well as any other Marvel game Square Enix is working on, will be revealed in 2018. We’ve got some waiting to do.
