This is most certainly a surprise, given how little we still know about both the platform and the Marvel Avenger’s game. But anyone who has now pre-ordered the Google Stadia Founder’s Edition is likely happy about anything they can play out the gate.
Worth noting, this will be the first Square Enix published game that is announced for Google Stadia. Other publishers have shown their support, including Ubisoft, Bethesda, Bandai Namco, Bungie, and 2K. So if this is to believed, it will be interesting if other Square Enix exclusives will be making its way over to Google Stadia in the near future opening up a potential for maybe seeing Final Fantasy 7 or Kingdom Hearts III on Google Stadia.
Marvel’s Avengers is the first chapter in a multi-game partnership between the comic book titan and Square Enix. The initial trailer confirmed that the world it is set in hasn’t been too kind to superheroes–perhaps they’ve even been demonized. “They say the time of heroes is over,” a narrator says in the original teaser trailer. “That if you’re different, you’re dangerous. But I know the truth. The world will always need heroes. We just need to reassemble.”
Square Enix has said Avengers “is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise.” The game is being developed by Crystal Dynamics, the studio behind the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and its sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider.
