I have a huge weakness for everything related to the subject of superheroes – and if we are talking about interpretations of comic books from the Marvel or DC stables, I try to capture absolutely everything that comes up (even the recent Marvel Snap, which disappointed viewers, is an intriguing production to me to some extent). That’s just what I have and it’s hard to change, really.
So I’m really looking forward to all the superhero video games out there for us. And believe it or not – there is a lot of it. If you think about it, there is a real wave of this type of position coming your way. And I’m not just talking about the greatest AAAs from recognized studies – a real cross-section of productions is being prepared, the only and most important common motive of which will be the heroes.
And this is what I would like to deal with in today’s text. I have prepared a list for youe ten most anticipated superhero games by me. You will surely know some of them very well, some will be a little surprise for you, and others you may wish to keep watching. Each of these items is already being created, so we just have to be patient.
Since I mentioned this title in the introduction, it is also worth starting our list with it. We are talking about a card game in the free-to-play model, which will allow us to collect heroes known from comic book pages, and then use them to fight with other players. Importantly, the project is the responsibility of former Blizzard developers who worked on Hearthston. It can really work!
Let’s move on to the free-to-play brawl, which is to debut later this year. And of course, it will not be a production focused solely on the superhero, but we will find at least a few of them there. Warner Bros. is responsible for the position, which has the rights to the heroes we know from the DC comics. This means that we will have to fight Batman, Wonder Woman and others. I’m waiting!
Marvel’s Midnight Suns
A production from the Marvel universe, for which the team from Firaxis Games is responsible, will also debut on the market in some time. Fans of heroes from Stan Lee will be able to try their hand at a tactical RPG turn-based game, which will allow you to direct your character. Of course, we will not be alone in all this – our teams will consist of well-known, powerful heroes.
The Wolf Among Us 2
Yes, the second season of the well-received platform game with fairy-tale characters from our world is also already in the process of being developed. His announcement was met with an excellent response from fans, so keep your fingers crossed for Telltale Games to deliver the detective novel at least as good as it did on its debut.
We know very little about this production – basically nothing except that it will tell about Wonder Woman (a heroine from DC comics), and that it is already being made. I am convinced that we will have to wait at least until the end of next year, and maybe even 2024 is in the game. Time will tell, but it is definitely worth watching the next moves of Monolith Productions, because this title has a lot of potential.
And if I am writing about the potential ones, I should also mention another character from the Marvel universe, which Insomniac Games takes on the wallpaper. After the delicious “Marvel’s Spider-Man” and the spin-off “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales”, talented creators take on Wolverine. It will be brutal, spicy, and I expect the pace of the action to make us dizzy at times. Of course, in a positive sense.
We have heard about Gotham Knights more than once, and the first reports were circulating a long time ago. Now, however, with full awareness, we can write that we are closer to the premiere than further. The story of a gang of heroes from Gotham is due to debut in October and I would be lying if I said that I am not waiting. I am counting on an adventure at least on the level we got from the Batman games from the Arkham series.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
Without beating the bush and perhaps a bit monothematic, but this is my most anticipated title of all that is currently being created (not only in this category). Two Spider-Mans, Venom, revisiting the wonderfully realized world from Insomniac Games … Sounds like a dream, and we know it is happening all the time under their hands. I can’t wait and I know I’m not alone in this.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice
The next item on our list is the DC universe. I am talking about a very interesting game about the Suicide Legion, which is to be focused on cooperative work and crazy activities in the city of Metropolis, which probably every comic fan will know. At the moment, it is difficult to say what we will be dealing with here, but the mere fact of players’ cooperation may turn out to be a bull’s eye.
Mystery game from SkyDance
We should also mention a game about which we know practically nothing. At the end of last year, we were informed that Skydance studio (consisting of many talented creators – headed by Amy Hennig) signed a contract with Marvel. This means that we can expect an action adventure game, but what will come of it … We will probably find out about it closer to the premiere. One thing is certain – something is created there.
