Firaxis making XCOM-style Marvel game
2K Games' E3 2021 line-up has leaked, and suggests that Firaxis is making an XCOM-style turn-based strategy game based on Marvel's Avengers.
Not quite XCOM: It seems safe to assume that there will be big differences between the XCOM formula and the new Marvel game, since XCOM features broad customization options and gleefully kills off your squaddies when you make mistakes.
- An upgradable ‘ant farm’ base/lair/helicarrier for our heroes
- Entirely new heroes of our own creation with custom powers
- Playable big names like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow
- XCOM’s Central Officer Bradford or likewise as an advisor
- Original story or at least an option to ‘break’ established canon
