The summer came and went without a proper movie tie-in game for The Avengers movie, but a teaser for Marvel's 'New Mobile Gaming Initiative' may finally change that.
Little is known about the game at this point (like what platforms it will available for), but it appears to center around the cinematic version of The Avengers, although the possibility of other superheroes should not be ruled out.
The plot of the game focuses on a mysterious pulse from space (referred to creatively as The Pulse) which disabled security at S.H.I.E.L.D.'s prison complex. This incident leads to the escape of several familiar comic book villains like Humanoid, Wendigo, and Zzzax, and it is up to The Avengers to recapture them.
Because The Avengers will be split up on individual missions, it is likely that the gameplay will be episodic in nature.
Since the release of The Avengers in theaters across the world Avengers-themed games and game add-ons have appeared for mobile devices but, a faithful game adaptation of the movie was curiously absent.
We will have more information on this title as it becomes available, but for now enjoy the teaser trailer below:
