After being announced years ago as The Avengers Project – a collaboration between Marvel, Square Enix, Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics and Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal – last month’s E3 finally lifted the lid on the game now called Marvel’s The Avengers. The presentation, however, showed a lot of cutscenes and not much gameplay – while the real gameplay demo was shown off behind closed doors.
It’s now been revealed that The Avengers game will be coming to San Diego Comic-Con next week, to a panel on July 18 – where fans attending will get their first proper look at some Avengers gameplay. It will probably be similar to the demo shown to press during E3, but it’ll be public presentation of it for the first time.
This would be good news, except that the only Marvel fans who’ll be able to actually see the gameplay demo are the ones attending the event itself at SDCC – the panel and gameplay will not be livestreamed.
