The E3 Coliseum event listing for upcoming Square Enix game Marvel’s Avengers has just revealed something pretty juicy – the game will feature “continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay”. It now looks like the information has been taken out – but not before letting us know that this will make for a pretty exciting gaming experience.
The entry, captured by PCGamer before being stripped out, said that up to four players can tackle the game together, and that it offers customisation options for the superheroes – meaning you’ll be able to tailor their play style to your preferences. This sounds like a pretty mould-breaking, RPG-like feature for a game based on some much-beloved and stalwartly-safeguarded comic book heroes. Who knows, maybe you’ll get Antman bashing baddies with a hammer, Thor-style? If that’s your preference, of course.
As it’s now gone, read up on the full listing which we’ve included below (also posted in a Tweet today by user Evan Filarca):
“Embrace your powers and join key members of the development team at Crystal Dynamics and the creative team at Marvel Games as they talk exclusively about the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers. This is the defining Avengers gaming experience: an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay. Moderated by Andrea Rene, assemble in teams up to four players, master extraordinary abilities, customize your heroes to fit your playstyle, and combine powers to defend an ever-expanding world under constant threat”.

The description’s reference to ‘combining powers’ also seems pretty interesting – and enigmatic. Hopefully we’ll find out more about what that means at the event. Either way, this is all good news for fans of co-op games.

Given that it’s now been replaced by a very pared down generic listing that gives nothing like the above away, it’s likely that this just jumped the gun on Square Enix’s slot at E3 on June 10 a little. There’s sure to be a lot more exciting news to come out of the game’s Coliseum event, though – stay tuned.
