The Marvel’s Avengers was first showcased to the public at San Diego Comic-Con in July. While parts of the footage did leak to the public, we now have it in good quality and released by Square Enix themselves.
The gameplay footage goes through the entire prologue which starts at the stage that’s set up for the Avengers during Avengers Day. The celebrations are quickly cut short as there’s an explosion in the distance. The game opens up as you get to play as Thor followed by Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and finally as Black Widow who takes on Task Master.
As she beats Task Master, there is no time to celebrate as the heli-carrier that Captain America is on explodes and he seemingly dies in the explosion. We then get to look at what seems like present-day as the Avengers are now disliked by the public and have disbanded. There’s a statue of Captain America and a memorial for all the people that were lost on A-Day.
The game seems to have been polished since Comic-Con but we can’t really confirm that. It looks interesting but this was just the prologue and we don’t know how the main game will play yet. However, we’re cautiously optimistic about this game and maybe it will turn out to be good.
Following the new release of Marvel’s very own Spiderman, which is a hit in the action-adventure genre. A
After a jaw-dropping response and a minimum of 8.5 rating from major gaming media houses, Insomniac Games isn’t holding back from releasing more marvel titles. We saw Spiderman topping the charts, here are most of the ratings.
Going through them, also, considering it was their first licensed title, they did a pretty good job. It seems like Insomniac Games has got the right boost to make more of such kick-ass titles. This is what the community director, James Stevenson had to say about their future plans.
“Sure we’d be open to another licensed game. I feel like the question hints to whether there are downsides to it. It’s different of course; you have other people involved who can tell you whether something is on-brand or off-brand, which is different for us than, say, working on a Ratchet & Clank.”
“But it’s not like we wanted to go too far away from what makes Spider-Man great. It had to be an authentic experience, so in some ways, it’s helpful having extra people around who know the character so well and are pushing you to make things better. Working with Marvel probably drove us to be better than we can be when we’re working on our own thing.”
Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation is one of the most anticipated games of this year. A PlayStation 4 exclusive, this game has you play as a veteran Peter Parker who has to take on many of his fearsome foes as they try to end the Spider once and for all.
We finally have a date for the when the review embargo gets lifted and it is September 4th. As stated in the tweet this is just 3 days before the launch of the game. While some fans are nervous regarding this, James Stevenson the Community Director at Insomniac Games posted a comment as to why they chose September 4th. James says,
“The Labor Day holiday meant 7-days early wasn’t really tenable for us as we didn’t want reviews hitting prior to the holiday weekend.
And we needed to allow enough time for people to play the game, and write their reviews, so we couldn’t go much earlier than 7 days out. Thus, first day back from the holiday”
That seems to be quite a reasonable reason and not something that they came up with because they’re afraid of negative reviews due to the game being bad. From the looks of it, the game seems to be crafted with a lot of love and care and we can’t wait to get to play as The Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man.
