Beyond Gaming had a chance to look at some job posts regarding the upcoming Avengers game and by the looks of it, the title will be online oriented, 3rd person and will use a cover based system.
Not interested if it's only online oriented
Sounds like a blast to me, count me in. You can have fun playing solitaire and Yahtzee.
Some of miss story-driven gaming. Is that so wrong?
Yes. Becaus3 Solitaire a d Yahtzee are the only kinds of offline games there are......
you could have stayed with "Sounds like a blast to me, count me in"
This was a dumb comment
"Godmars* There are plenty of story-driven games
Plenty of OFFLINE SP games to enjoy instead of wasting money on crap like this that these companies feel obligated to push on the sheep. Take a look at all the great games SONY puts on their Playstation systems and they ALL have solid SP components so as an investment your not just throwing money away for the rights to play this type of shit. Most people like to know their money isnt going in the garbage once the servers stop supporting trash like this and other games that follow the same stupid route like Destiny as well.
Exactly my thoughts
@godmars There have been plenty of solo story games on ps4 at least. I'm looking forward to hearing more about this.
And they've all taken a dip in quality. Have become standardized. I still haven't forgiven them for White Knight Chronicles - that PSO wannabe piece of shate...
People may disagree with me, yet in game storytelling has become more about staged presentation rather than interaction.
Yeah....who would want to play a superhero game online with other people........ /s
Seriously ? Do we need another online game ?
Does anything sound more generic than online third person cover game
What we really need is for Square to work with Platinum Games to make a sick Marvel action game. I'd be sold.
No thanks. I want a lengthy single player game with optional co-op at most. I don't want an Avengers game to be a GaaS game.
Online? Like only online or online focused? Hmmm....pass Batman Arkham by Rocksteady didn't need online...just saying
You expect more from S/E when FF15 was pretty much an online title?
Well I mean considering the fact online is added to gather more interest....you don't need it when it's the f***** Avengers.
Thing is making or adding a multiplayer option was likely another layer of difficulty added to an already overly complicated produced game. With story suffering overall.
So basically if anything single player related sucks...it's the multiplayers fault.
Unless added work to compensate for possible shortcomings is done. And we already know that didn't happen.
It could have had online, online done smart though not like origins. If they had a bat mobile racing mode where you could customize your batmobile it would have been badass, go the extra mile and have a batmobile themed after the characters. We already saw the joker one in the story. So you choose your character and customize it cosmetically with mods that fit your characters aesthetic. also a PVP tank twisted metal type mode would have been interesting. Imagine driving around Gotham, fighting other players, trying to stay alive looking for a random health pick up. Could have been a game all on its own. Missed opportunity by Rocksteady IMO. Considering how well the batmobile was designed. Not all MP is bad it's when you become generic that's bad. They would have been commended for how original the concept would be IMO. It also fits the lore so it makes sense. Looking forward to this, hopefully it's good. Marvel did say they are being careful when they pick studios to work with. Apparent with insomniac and Spiderman so there's no reason to be pessimistic, before youve seen it.
Taking cover as a Super Hero sounds super fun... /s
Yes because every super hero just blindly goes into battle. . . .
Oh please that's exactly what happens. You rarely if ever read a comic book and see a superhero taking f**king cover like he's in a third person shooter
Most superheroes don't take cover. That is for certain.
I saw the hulk take cover once. He then proceeded to throw it at the villian.
Um, they wouldn't be superheroes if they didn't, lol. Game sounds whack anyway. I'll pass.
Lol casual comic fans you guys obviously don't read and just want raw super power explosions lol
That was fun while it lasted. Well, back to waiting for another Marvel Ultimate Alliance.
Nobody disappoints like Square.
Ubi says hi 👋
Yet Ubi games are consistently at the top of the sales list, so we just keep enabling them....
Online is one thing. Thats just up to someone's tastes. But cover based? What about when you are playing as someone like Hulk? Or Captain America? They are mostly hand to hand fighters. Cover based usually means the combat is centered around ranged attacks. This just all sounds weird to me in a super hero game with the Avengers. Give me a cover based Punisher game any day though.
Hulk IS kinda weird but Captain America definitely takes cover. His sheild can't block everything.
No. But gameplay wise it still sounds odd. So you're Cap. You get behind cover. And your only option to fight back is to throw your shield and wait for it to come back. At the end of the day you would still pretty much have to get out of cover and take fire trying to get close. Or move in blocking with the shield. It just seems odd, thats all.
No. Captain America charges a shooting enemy, blocks with his shield while doing so, as that guys reloading or - more likely - bracing right before getting rammed into, Cap throws and rebounds his shield off some walls and a couple of other bad guys, catching it in a somersault that end's on the chest of another bad guy before launching himself at other bad guys until there are no more bad guys standing. Cause that's just how Cap do! "His sheild can't block everything." Short of cosmic blasts - and even then - BS!
@Godmars He can't dodge cars, magic, much stronger opponents, rubble, bullets and weapons made of vibranium, etc. Sure he can block the more conventional attacks.
Lennox He still doesnt cover, he run away strategically to create a counterattack. Captain America embodies the words "bold heart". If anything cap is the most straight forward character out of the avengers, he wouldn't hesitate, he the first to go head first on any mission or situation even if odds are not on his side, thats what sets cap America from the rest. So cover system kinda still makes no sense.
Eh, Cap can be stealthy as heck when he needs to be. But structuring the whole game around "cover"... nah.
@Lennoxb63: He can't - dodge - cars? That's the best you got? Also, getting my nerd on, the shield is a mix of adamantium and vibranium. Is designed so it absorbs redirects and dissipates kinetic. Was blocking shots from Hulk and Thor long before it has to in the movies. As everyone else is pointing out, Cap simply isn't a cover shooting hero. He's a self-aiming cannon ball.
Uh, Lennox, Capatain America is a supersoldier, lol.
Why is there cover based mechanics? This isn't supposed to be a shooter. It's Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Spidey and more. Not a single one takes cover in battle. How does that make sense!!! I'm so confused!!!
Iron Man, Captain America, and Spiderman definitely take cover. Hulk and Thor don't need to.
Yeah dude maybe once and a blue moon but they are not take cover kind of heroes
In what comic book or movie has the avengers ever used cover. Maybe Hawkeye but I cannot find a single reason why this should be cover based.
I surely hope not and it better be like "cover my team mate in battle third person single player game with co-op optional" type of game. We've seen how turning something that would have been a cool single player game like Ghost in the Shell turned into an online multiplayer game that did poorly and is already being pulled https://www.oneangrygamer.n... When we should have gotten a new and awesome single player game or update/remake of the PS2 game https://m.youtube.com/watch... Square, don't ruin Avengers by turning it into an online cover shooter game with no story.
Like others above me have said I'm passing. I play single player games and enjoy them. I know multiplayer games are the new cool thing but seriously they're draining their potential to sell when the market is saturated with online only games. If you're dead set on having multiplayer at the very least add a single player to deliver a full package. Otherwise, you're basically rolling the dice on hoping you get to be the next popular online shooter/game when those people are fickle and move on to the next big thing.
Sounds like yet another miss for Marvel studios. As someone else mentioned above, the greatest super hero game ever made (Batman Arkham Asylum) and it's follow ups and sequels did not require online to play. Take a page out of the Rocksteady book Marvel. There is such a rich universe to draw from and they offer us....this.
Wtf that sounds stupid
Doesn't matter that it's online. But cover based?? That sounds like a game completely out of place that just uses licensed characters.
And i was expecting something like MGU (Marvel Game Universe) story wise..... guess not =/ but we will see
Online co-op maybe, which... go figure! What a surprise! A game about a team of superheroes has an online component?! No way!
Call me crazy but hiring someone to work on cover based combat is not the same as saying the whole game will be cover based. And in fact cover based game play just wouldn't make sense so I think people are freaking out a little preemptively. As for the online how are people surprised about this. It's been confirmed to be a multiplayer title since it was announced.
I don't remember it being confirmed to be a mp title when it was announced do you have a link
Lol at the comments here everyone as usual jumping to conclusions based on a job posting.
I'm starting to hate the phrase "games as a service"...
I'd take a stealthy, cover based black widow game. It's the only avenger that makes sense for that style of gameplay. Maybe Hawkeye? Somebody mentioned punisher earlier and that would be even better.
If this is online oriented it's an automatic pass. I have Spider-Man to look forward to for my superhero fix.
Co-op? Does Iron Man need cover?
Why online? I was actually looking forward to a single player avengers game. Disappointed by this news.
Hero shooter trash
Only online? Okay no buy.
Nice will check it out no pesky singleplayer lol.
And it will be shite.
Online?... F**K OFF!
Cover based? Doesn't sound like a super hero game to me...
Yeah, when I think of The Avengers, I think of taking cover. What, will a Superman game be a stealth-based game then?
