Square Enix and Marvel announced back in 2017 that they are working on Avengers Game which is commonly referred to as The Avengers Project. Everyone was so excited to see their favorite action heroes in a storyline based game but a recent rumor reveals that the game is an Ultimate Alliance Reboot.
In January last year, Square Enix announced their partnership with Marvel to develop and publish games. The Avengers Game is being made by Crystal Dynamics who are known for their work in Tomb Raider.
There has been a very little information about the game but a 4chan user suggests that the game is full reboot of the series which says:
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.
Moreover, the user also mentioned that the story focuses on Captain America, Iron Man, and Scarlet Witch. Other characters might be available to play in the game too. The game will be also in the same world as Sony’s Spiderman game for PS4.
Since it’s all leaks so take it with a grain of salt. E3 is around the corner and that’s where we might hear more about the game so stay tuned.
