The trailer suggests we’ll see updates and information on Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora, the upcoming Aliens game from developer Survios, and some other surprises too.

Hennig’s title is set to be a narrative-driven blockbuster action-adventure game, and one with a “completely original story and take on the Marvel Universe”. Hennig is known for being a co-creator and driving force on the first three Uncharted games, acting as director and writer on the whole trilogy.

“I can’t imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game,” said Hennig at the time. “The Marvel universe epitomises all the action, mystery and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience. It’s an honour to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity, and humour that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to enable our players to embody these heroes that they love.”

In other video game news, the Fortnite and Dragon Ball crossover starts today, and there’s four characters, an adventure island and more to explore. Players can even watch select episodes of Dragon Ball Super in Fortnite as well.
