Ubisoft might be working on an Avengers game
With the new Avengers movie currently "Hulk-Smashing" box office records and charming world-wide audiences (Tony Stark style), it appears that "true believers" might have an Avengers video game to help fill the Nick Furyless void before "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" assemble once again on the big screen.
Someone over at Fusible has discovered that a domain name for Avengers: Battle for Earth has been registered by Marvel and Ubisoft the day before the film hit theaters. However, it should be said that without any official word from Ubisoft or Marvel, we can't say whether or not this potential title will be a movie tie-in or a completely independant project or something that is 100% confirmed to happen.
Hopefully with E3 coming in just a few short weeks, we won't have to wait much longer for information.
In the mean time, be sure to check ScrewAttack's version of The Avengers. Or else Nick will smash!
I wish the 1st person from THQ one never got canceled that one actually looked awesome.
I know right? Video games based on movies, especially comic ones have had almost always been epic fails! It's like any money leftover (if any) from the movie making is all the game makers have.
THIS IS GONNA SUCK. Unless a miracle happens, it'll be a shitty movie tie in.
Wait... a game is being made... AFTER the movie is released in theaters? What is this?! I don't even...!!!
If it's nothing but a tie-in to the movie Sega Style, then I wont even consider it, but the fact that nothing has been revealed up to now would have me assume that it could be realeased in 2 years or so, relinquishing all support from the source material, at that point, the game itself will have to be special, because a lackluster game about a 2 year old movie will not have any credibilty.
90% of all Super hero games ESPECIALLY those based upon films will fail on a massive scale, since they are made for an ignorant crowd, so the companies behind the production can squeeze the sponge to max!
The Batman Arkham games has sat a standard, and every single super hero game should be inspirred by those masterpieces!
I won't buy movie licensed games since there never really has been a good one, except Spider-Man 2.. that game was..Okey, considered what it was.
Would rather have it done by Activision...cause to be honest I don't think any game they have done for Marvel has out right sucked. Some may have not been what we were hoping for, but they didn't suck.
Meh they can't be worst than what Sega did with all the other Marvel games..... IRON MAN COUGH!
As long as it's not done by Sega, we'll be fine.
might be a game. if theres any less than 3 games each of which will be ported to every console il be shocked then
Made by ubisoft? No thanks.
But there's already an Avengers video game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVajBbn1kwc
Why don't we just play the two avenger games that are already out? Those games were fun.
*Reads the name Ubisoft* Yup confirmed I'm not getting it. The way they've been treating PC gamers means I'm not supporting them.
Well if they are, hopefully not having to launch it in time for the movie means they'll get the extra time to make something that isn't a pile of shit like most movie tie-in games are.
My idea for the Avengers game
As for the story..i think it should take place between Avengers 1 and 2
Story: It takes place 1 year after the Movie.Ever since the Avengers beat Loki things have been peaceful but on a peaceful day a television broadcast happens all over the world...Red Skull (Who is alive) explains that he has set bombs all over New York..and that not only they will have to deal with the bombs but a supervillain group called the Dark Avengers and they have to deal with Hydra.There is not enough time to stop the bombs and deafet the Dark Avengers..so they contact Doctor Strange and ask if his team can come in and help stop the Dark Avengers,Red Skull and Hydra.They accepted and the Defenders and Avengers go to new york to stop Red Skull and Hydra
In the game there are two storylines..
The Playable Charcters are
Captain Amercia Thor Hulk Iron man Hawkeye and Black Widow are not in this game
The Second story line is the
Their Team Members are
Doctor Strange Nova Ms.Marvel Iron Fist
I would only get it if the game was set up in the form of Ultimate Alliance. Hell, there were combo moves from that game in the film.
If this were to be a movie based game...I would definitely buy it due to how awesome the movie is!
As already commented on here, I'd just like to see the first-person Avengers game come back. Would it have sucked? Probably, but the concept is at the very least intriguing.
It will see a holiday 2012 release and will suck. Prove me wrong Ubisoft!
