Marvel’s Avengers is the forthcoming third person action-adventure title by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montréal and published by Square Enix. Senior Brand Director Rich Briggs, has recently spoke to ComicBook about the game’s length.
“I think it’ll depend on exactly how deep you want to go into it. So if you think about previous Crystal games, you know that if you want to be playing your way through the core story, it’s going to be in that area, 10 to 12 hours.”
Marvel’s Avengers combines an original story with single-player and co-operative gameplay in the definitive Avengers gaming experience. Assemble into teams of up to four players online, master extraordinary abilities, customize a growing roster of Heroes, and defend the Earth from escalating threats. Featuring regular content updates, Marvel’s Avengers will take players on an epic journey delivered over multiple years. This game is what’s next for the Avengers.
“But if you want to see everything there is, and do all the side missions and everything else, you’re generally looking at 30 plus hours in the Tomb Raider games. So we’re not putting exact numbers on it just yet, but you can expect something comparable to what we’ve done in the past with that regard. And then, of course, you have the extended narrative and the extended game plan, more heroes post-launch.”
So far, from what I have seen the game looks fine. Most super hero games are far from great, unfortunately. Of course some of them can be fun, but there are not many.
Actually it is very strange, since super hero movies are at top nowadays. You’d think with all this success there would be more super hero games. Anyhow, I like the Avengers and even without my all-time – favorite – super hero – friendly neighborhood- Spidey, I am still going to play this game.
Marvel’s Avengers will be released on May 15th. Here is also its latest trailer.
