Disney’s D23 Expo returns for 2022, with plenty of new reveals and updates for Marvel games to be shown. Whether you’re a diehard Avengers fan or a Spider-Man lover, here’s what you can expect at the Marvel and Disney Games Showcase 2022.
Since March 2009, Disney has been celebrating the past and present of its movies, games and more at the D23 Expo. While the event is also a great opportunity for The Official Disney Fan Club to dress up as their favorite characters and meet other fans, it’s also a chance for developers to showcase the latest games under the Marvel banner.
The Marvel and Disney Games Showcase will be one of D23’s biggest events yet, as developers like Crystal Dynamics and Respawn Entertainment are hyped to make appearances.
What to expect at Marvel and Disney Games Showcase 2022
Marvel fans could certainly be in for a treat at this year’s D23 Expo.
The showcase is set to dive into the latest projects coming from Marvel and Disney. Although these are not confirmed, here are some games that are likely to appear during the event.
Marvel’s Avengers has certainly had a rocky road since its release in 2020, but the game has stayed on track, thanks to the addition of a next-gen update that breathed new life into it. New characters like Black Panther, Spider-Man, Hawkeye, and Kate Bishop have also arrived, with Bucky Barnes set to be the next playable hero. However, gamers are still eager to find out what the future of the game holds in the wake of the Embracer Group merger this year.
Crystal Dynamics has only revealed brief information about Bucky’s arrival, as well as the long-awaited Cloning Labs mode and the new Villain Sectors. The showcase would be a good time to reassure gamers that Marvel’s Avengers really is here to stay.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns
Despite its delay to 2023, the card-based version of Firaxis from the Marvel Universe is likely to debut some new footage, as well as a deeper look at the characters. Midnight Suns is a departure from the traditional Marvel affair, opting to pit players against the strategy genre, rather than all-out heist. We’re certainly looking forward to teaming up as Wolverine and Ghost Rider.
Play as Wolverine in Marvel’s Midnight Suns.
Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga DLC
Although Lego Stars: The Skywalker Saga has every major story under the sun in the game, it looks like there are more stories to explore in Telltale Games’ latest Lego game. It’s been six months since its release and while there have been minor content drops along the way, the game is certainly ripe for a boost in gameplay.
Could we see a full Solo or Rogue One expansion appear? Or maybe even more Mandalorian content? D23 Expo has all the answers.
Star Wars Jedi Survivor
The follow-up to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is already set to be one of the most exciting releases of 2023. Picking up five years after the first entry, Respawn Entertainment’s sequel follows Cal Kestis on a complex journey to master his Jedi prowess. , while facing new and familiar enemies. Although a sneak peek was released earlier this year, details about the new Star Wars game are still scarce. Let’s hope Respawn Entertainment brings the products.
Marvel Spider-Man 2
The wait for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is really unbearable. While we’ve had remasters and a Miles Morales spin-off to dive into, we’re ready for the next adventure. Insomniac Games may decide to save Spider-Man 2 for the next PlayStation State of Play event. Given that the future of the MCU is likely to expand on D23 on the movie side, it would surely be a great opportunity to put Spidey in the spotlight.
