E3 COLISEUM DETAILS:

  • The Avengers and SHIELD decide to band together and have their own themed Helicarrier called the Chimera that houses the experimental technology that sets off the events of A-Day
  • Biggest challenge is that every character is so different, combat uniquely catered to each character, each characters “feels like its own game”
  • Each character has unique traversal, grappling hooks, wall jumps, flight, etc.
  • Only one hero is allowed, 4 Hulks won’t be running around per team
  • Can “straight-shot” the story by yourself, or jump-in/jump out instantaneously with your friends
  • For the single-player campaign, you will only be able to play the character that is designated per mission
  • Live service, but also very narrative focused, “can’t really compare it to any other game”
  • Said to “stay tuned” for people wondering where certain characters are
  • When asked about if Spider-Man and Avengers are connected, Bill Rosemann said that they “are just focused on making the best Avengers game”
