A single-player Iron Man game is coming from the studio behind Dead Space

Electronic Arts announced that it has partnered with Marvel to create a new Iron-Man game. It is being developed by EA Motive in Montreal and it will be a single-player, third-person, and action-adventure game.

Executive producer Olivier Proulx will be leading the development team on this new title, and he has worked on other past Marvel titles such as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Other notable names include Ian Frazier (Mass Effect: Andromeda, Star Wars Squadrons), Maëlenn Limineau (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit), and JF Poirier (Child of Light, Star Wars Battlefront II).

The news is out! 🎉We couldn’t be more thrilled to collaborate with @MarvelGames on an all-new single-player, action-adventure Iron Man game. While we're still in early development, this is an exciting new adventure for our studio: https://t.co/zpuT61TKtV pic.twitter.com/309lhm02dY

“We are thrilled to collaborate with the talented team at Motive Studio to bring their original vision of one of Marvel’s most important, powerful, and beloved characters,” says Marvel Games Vice President and Creative Director Bill Rosemann in a statement. “Their experience delivering both established entertainment worlds and thrilling gameplay — combined with their authentic passion for the armored icon — will fuel our quest to deliver a love letter to a legendary hero in the form of the ultimate Iron Man video game.”

Proulx adds, “It’s an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to make a video game based on one of the most iconic Super Heroes in entertainment today. We have a great opportunity to create a new and unique story that we can call our own. Marvel is encouraging us to create something fresh. We have a lot of freedom, which is so engaging for the team.”

The game is currently in pre-production, but EA also notes that it is only one of several new titles in its partnership with Marvel.

Marvel has been working with many other game studios recently, including Skydance New Media and its upcoming game starring Black Panther and Captain America. Fireaxis Games will also release Marvel’s Midnight Suns in December, and Sony’s Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is slated for launch next year.

The best trailers from The Game Awards 2023: OD, Blade, Den of Wolves and more
Sophia Lillis screams in the first trailer for OD.

The Game Awards 2023 came and went Thursday night, bringing a plethora of surprising and entertaining game trailers with it. I'm still thinking about many of these trailers, particularly the ones that revealed brand-new games. Whether it's because they made captivating narrative or music choices, incorporated their flashy gameplay in a creative way, or just were a ton of fun to watch over and over again, the following seven trailers stand out as the cream of the crop in a show that overwhelmed viewers with tons of announcements. Whether you couldn't watch the show live or only care about watching the best trailers from it, we recommend you watch the following seven videos, listed in order of their appearance during The Game Awards 2023.
Pony Island 2: Panda Circus
Pony Island 2 Panda Circus World Premiere Trailer at The Game Awards 2023

If there were an award for the trippiest trailer of the night, it would've gone to Pony Island 2: Panda Circus. Daniel Mullins is known for mind-bending games like Inscryption and the original Pony Island, and this sequel to that 2016 indie classic looks like it will be his weirdest game yet. Pony Island 2: Panda Circus appears to blend first-person gameplay with that of retro point-and-click games. Still, something feels very off about the latter throughout the trailer, with visual glitches and interruptions of live-action footage or a character played by ProZD. We aren't quite sure how this all fits together just yet, but we're certainly intrigued.

Blade in the announcement trailer for his new game.

Arkane Studios, the Microsoft-owned developer behind games like Deathloop and Redfall, announced Blade at The Game Awards 2023.

Blade features the Marvel hero of the same name. In the reveal trailer, we see a nervous barber struggling with a trembling razer, a flash of Blade's fangs as he puts on his sunglasses, and the ominous message that he's "just getting started." Not much is known about the actual plot or how the gameplay will be structured in the final product.

Dead by Daylight goes single-player with The Casting of Frank Stone

Behaviour Interactive revealed The Casting of Frank Stone, a new narrative-focused single-player horror title set in the Dead by Daylight universe, at The Game Awards 2023.

Dead by Daylight has stayed relevant in the competitive landscape of live-service multiplayer titles in no small part due to the rollout of horror films' most iconic characters, as well as its addicting gameplay. For as popular as this asymmetrical game centered around four survivors attempting to avoid and escape one powerful killer --such as Chucky, Ghostface, and even Nic Cage -- has become, a strong narrative has never been a key ingredient in its success. We already knew the universe would be expanded with a Blumhouse-produced film adaptation, however, we now know that players looking to fully engross themselves in a new original story in that universe will finally get that chance.
