PowerUp! - "The Avengers Project in development at Crystal Dynamics is still to be revealed, however, from the information we've discovered, it sounds like it's going to be a Marvel version of Destiny."
I’d hope not
If it is then pass Obviously it will turn more heads and the like being Marve/Avengers but still nothing should be like Destiny An Avengers single player story driven game would be better...it's probably why Spiderman will most likely end up being better.
or they just simply meant a successful MMO ....hate it or love it ..they made and still make tons of money off Destiny.
Why? I mean there is nothing wrong with the set up of destiny, just end game decisions. If we could be superhero’s with the graphics and gameplay of destiny, with the co-op setup... I see no issue. You all are just hating because they said “destiny”.
There's plenty wrong with games like Destiny...it's a shallow online focused game which relies more on you and your friends doing the same repetitive missions over and over for added replay value, that's basically the games core content. The game relies on YOU the player making his own replay value over what limited things you are presented with in the game as a way for the developer to cut costs during development spending countless hours and manpower making a rich game full of a variety of content. Then you all wait for the next expansion with stuff that should have been in the core game to begin with but even after 3-4 big DLC packs it still feels like it's only half of what you expected at launch. The only game like it this gen to feel like it has enough in has been Monster Hunter World.
@fox I see your point, but what is said does not mean the same shallow release. Destiny has its faults that everyone is aware of... but that is on them and the decisions to hide behind dlc. But using said same setup could work.. the amount of content is on the devs, not the game engine.
@fox But the thing is, Square usually cares about their AAA/big budget titles (key words being AAA and big budget). Just look at Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Tomb Raider, and Just Cause. Disregard the remakes, spin-offs, and mobile games. I'm talking about the games where they spend the most money and manpower on. They usually spend at minimum 4 years or something on a single game. That's more than most AAA companies like EA, Activision, and Ubisoft do. They do spend their time and try to make quality games and they have made some the most praised games this gen. So yeah, I don't think that they'll fuck it up with this game.
I expected it to be so because a online game would be perfect for the avengers. You could go through tons of different raids on different worlds and have end boss like Doctor Doom or Ultron etc. It would be lit.
I'm down with an online marvel mmo like dc universe online.
No... it won’t be lit...
It's the teenagers they pander to and they are the one's who use such foul language!
No, it would be terrible for two reasons: 1: They either allow people to be Hulk, Spiderman, Iron Man etc. in which case there will be no individuality, there be hundreds of hulks, Iron Men etc. 2: They allow people to create their own superhero's, in which case we have City of Heros/DC Universe, and nobody wants another one of those.
If so then I'm out!
Why take such a stupid risk on the superheroes bandwagon .. i swear to god SE is pissing the crap out of me every time i see them ignore their golden old IP's for stupid things like this / mobile crap and the other overhyped crap that some of us fed up with .. stop losing money and MAKE A SEQUEL FOR PARASITE EVE .. good god is it hard for this company to take a risk like this and buy the rights back , if you are that good at cinematic experiences THEN WHY DON'T YOU DO THAT .
superhero bandwagon and risk? lol love how based off a rumor and a possible similarity you know this game will be crap. but not only that you went on this long rant about what se is doing with their properties.
I LOATH the likes of you who always bend over for companies .
Lol its not that serious Shinox. Tell me has square never made a good game? Tell me how I bend over for companies, especially in this case were we no absolutely nothing about this RUMORED game. And how is a superhero game in this particular time a risk? Lol kinda sad you loath someone over the internet lol do you get out much.
They made a sequel to parasite eve. Two of them. And buy back the rights for what?
"And buy back the rights for what?" FXXX YOU .. honestly
If that's the case then i will ignore it Thank god for spiderman That will be the only super hero game i get this year unless Rocksteady will reveal it's justice league game
Lol I have no faith in SE Should have given it to someone else, just look at the way they announced it, delays and lies incoming... And then look at Spiderman announced an released the next year...
I'd love a new Marvel Alliance.
I'm fine with it being a Destiny like type game, not ok with it having the issues Destiny has, we haven't seen anything yet its far to early to just write it off.
I think if it's Marvel's version of a destiny like game which pretty much everybody originally was on board with then that is not a bad thing. But if it's going to be a Marvel's version of all of the issues, problems and mistakes Destiny made then no pass. I think a lot of people reacting to the mistakes Bungie made with Destiny not the game that everybody was captivated by when it came out. The original promise and core of Destiny is something that took the industry by storm and everybody was on board with that. So if they're going to try and make that and succeed and why wouldn't any of us be okay with that?
Well said. I did enjoy the majority of my time spent with D1 but hit an all stop in early 2016. I doubt that I'll ever play D2. An Avengers game of this type would be interesting but needs to pass on the issues as you've said.
Good god this company is hopeless.
Odd how companies are both so reactive that they almost immediately try to copy something that seems successful like Destiny only to become insular and immobile after such has been shown not to work.
Still waiting to see gameplay before I decide whether I'm interested or not.
" I have no faith in square enix anymore....", but proceeds to jerk off to kingdom hearts news. Lol. Gamers.
Good god.... why?! I wonder if devs actually listen to what gamers want..
Thank god for Spider-Man PS4. It has Avengers Tower and other Marvel Universe characters - just not playable. It's a worthy replacement to this robbery.
it's not square enix's destiny, it's disney's destiny because guess who's funding that project and therefore will also determine the direction it will go?
I’m looking forward to this as long as they learn from Bungie on what mistakes NOT to make. It would also be nice if you get to use Marvel characters fully fleshed out with their abilities, rather than have your own character with your own powers and have Marvel characters only be NPCs
I like this game so much
Can't remember the last time square impressed me
Oh god please no. I don't want it to be littered with lootboxes, microtransactions, and have a grindy campaign. If so, then I will probably pass.
If it played like Marvel Ultimate Alliance or Xmen Legends I would be all over it but if its like Destiny I will pass
ugh! no no NO.....got to hand it to Square Enix, they really know how to fuck up a game!
Do people still care about Marvel in 2018? i thought people got tired of comic book films last year?
That sounds pretty awful.
omfg it better not be first-person.
I don't see how the bullet points read as an Avengers Destiny. It just sounds like an MMO/shared world Marvel game, which is fine. There's been plenty of MMO's and larger world games before Destiny, so there's no direct correlation there. Even Marvel Heroes was an excellent MMO before the new management and CEO ruined it. It was basically Diablo with a Marvel Universe skin, so these things have precedent, and honestly it's the best way to handle it if they have rights and plans to reach beyond just the current MCU Avengers team. I'm hoping the '3rd person cover based' mechanics is something lost in translation, but I'll wait for an official reveal before anything.
