Skydance New Media and Marvel Entertainment has shared the first teaser trailer for Amy Hennig’s triple-A, blockbuster Marvel project. Originally announced in October 2021 (but still lacking a title), the game is described by Marvel as a “narrative-driven, ensemble adventure” set during World War II that features “four playable heroes at different points in the story,” including Captain America and Black Panther. Skydance New Media is helmed by Hennig, who is best known for directing the original Uncharted, not to mention various Legacy of Kain games, including Soul Reaver.

“We’re so grateful for all the enthusiasm and support we’ve received from fans, and we’re thrilled to finally unveil a first glimpse of the game during this year’s D23 Expo,” said Hennig, President, Skydance New Media. “Marvel has been an incredible partner throughout the creative process as we develop an original story and build an exciting new team of characters. We hope fans are intrigued by this sneak peek, and we’re excited to share more down the road.”

“Our D23 Expo reveal is only the beginning of the action-packed adventure awaiting Marvel fans,” said Bill Rosemann, Vice President and Creative Director, Marvel Games. “Amy and the Skydance New Media team have a deep love and respect for our characters, have poured themselves into the core comic book inspiration, and will harness their incredible storytelling skills to craft an all-new, thrilling narrative experience. Stay tuned over the next months as we’ll share additional looks at our four heroes, two worlds, and one war.”

From a Marvel article:

As the game’s narrative unfolds, players will be able to play an ensemble of four characters: a young Steve Rogers, aka Captain America; Azzuri, T’Challa’s grandfather and the WWII-era Black Panther; Gabriel Jones, a U.S. soldier and member of the Howling Commandos; and Nanali, leader of the fledgling Wakandan Spy Network. Players can look forward to intuitive controls and exhilarating second-to-second gameplay that captures the action and excitement of Marvel, inspired by landmark comics, television, and films, as they navigate this all-new globe-trotting adventure.

The game will not feature co-op, according to an IGN report:

When IGN asked Hennig in an interview for the untitled Marvel game if this was a co-op title, the director responded, “Narratively yes, gameplay mechanics-wise no.”

While the title will indeed see Captain America and Black Panther (Azzuri, T’challa’s grandfather), gameplay wise don’t expect to team up with your friend in local or online.

“We experienced something partly intentionally partly by happy accident on Uncharted that for people playing our game it was a shared living room experience… even if their hand wasn’t on the controller,” Hennig responded. The goal for this title is to capture that same kind of shared living room experience even if players aren’t actively playing together.
