Marvel's Avengers

Last month, we announced the prequel comic from comic creators Jim Zub and Paco Diaz heading your way, but now Marvel Games is happy to share a new collaboration between Marvel, Titan Books, Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal, in anticipation of the release of Marvel's Avengers!

Before the epic action-adventure game makes it way onto PlayStation 4, Xbox, Stadia, and PC on May 15, 2020, dive into the world of Marvel's Avengers with the official prequel novel that will tie directly into the events of the game with Marvel’s Avengers: The Extinction Key.

Marvel's Avengers: Extinction Key

Written by best-selling author Greg Keyes, the novel leads into the game as an ancient organization called the Zodiac seeks to acquire an infinitely powerful weapon—the Zodiac Key. The Avengers (Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor) must stop them before they use the key to warp the very fabric of time and space. With the help of allies including Doctor Strange, Doctor Voodoo, and agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., they comb the globe to combat thirteen villains whose eldritch powers are a combination of technology and centuries-old sorcery.

Marvel’s Avengers: The Extinction Key will be available wherever books are sold on March 31, 2020.

The next Titan Books collaboration, Marvel's Avengers: The Art of the Game, releasing after the game's release, will allow readers to delve into the world of Marvel's Avengers in an extraordinary collection of art.

Marvel's Avengers: The Art of the Game

Marvel's Avengers: The Art of the Game, packed with concept art, final designs, storyboards, and artist commentary, features intimate studies of the Avengers, their designs, outfits, gear, and abilities, plus a detailed look at the different environments and missions in the game.

Unmasking the artistry behind the hotly anticipated video game, this showpiece hardback book contains exclusive concept sketches, character art, storyboards, and fully-rendered scenes alongside fascinating insights into the creative process from the talented creators of the game.
