In January 2017, writer Square Enix introduced that it had signed a multi-title contract with Marvel that may see it produce a number of video games primarily based on Marvel Comics properties. To date, solely considered one of these tasks has been revealed: an Avengers sport quickly dubbed The Avengers Project. Unfortunately, because it revealed the mission with a transient teaserSquare Enix has mentioned just about nothing concerning the sport. What we all know formally of the title largely comes from mentioned teaser. As it’s possible you’ll bear in mind, the hashtag #Reassemble accompanied the trailer, in addition to imagery that hinted at destruction and tragedy. Combined, these two issues point out that the sport’s story will likely be one thing that includes salvaging the Avengers. Sounds like will probably be an emotional expertise, proper? That’s as a result of will probably be.
In a brand new job itemizing for the place of Narrative Director, developer Crystal Dynamics refers back to the sport’s narrative as “emotional” a number of instances.
“The Narrative Director will likely be tasked with the route of the sport’s cinematic and gameplay experiences. They are professional in collaborating throughout design and narrative disciplines to make memorable, emotionaland cinematic experiences,” reads the ‘description’ of the place. “The Narrative Director will work in partnership with the Game Director and Art Director, to create the narrative tone of the project. They will work cross-discipline with other writers, designers, and artists to develop a high-quality narrative AAA gameplay experience.”
Elsewhere within the “essential duties and responsibilities” part of the job itemizing, the phrase emotional is introduced up once more. More particularly, it says the Narrative Director will likely be tasked with creating “an emotional gameplay experience.” So, once more, there appears to be actual emphasis on the sport’s story being charged with emotion.
Interestingly, below the place necessities, it says the applicant should have the “ambition to create a Game of the Year title.” Now, each studio desires to create a Game of the Year title, however not many put it proper there within the job necessities. Perhaps this exhibits that Square Enix has big ambitions for the sport?
The Avengers Project is at present with no launch date, and in the intervening time, no platforms have been concretely recognized. When Square Enix introduced the mission, it mentioned we’d hear and see extra of it in 2018, however that clearly by no means occurred. That mentioned, Square Enix has confirmed will probably be at E3 this yr, so perhaps it’ll lastly unveil the sport there this June.
Anyway, as at all times, be happy to go away a remark letting us know what you assume or hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ and let me know over there. What do you wish to see from The Avengers Project?
