Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have confirmed that Marvel's Avengers will indeed have a photo mode, but unfortunately it's not ready to reveal it or even talk about it. As you will know, this generation photo modes have become increasingly common in games, but they are still far from a guarantee, especially when it comes to live-service titles. As for how robust this photo mode will be, who knows. And unfortunately Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics haven't said when they will talk more about the feature, but they did confirm it will be there at launch.
As you may know, Marvel's Spider-Man not only had a photo mode, but had a pretty in-depth one, and it was a huge hit with fans. If Marvel's Avengers does something similar it could be a big feature for the game's core community. A photo mode is never going to move units, but it is a great community building feature and helps spread word of your game across gaming forums and social media.
Again, it has to be done right though. If it's simply a selfie cam that allows your to take duck face Hulk selfies on the Golden Gate Bridge, well that's probably not going to cut it. But if it's a proper photo mode that could be a lot of fun to use, especially with all the different costume variations and diverse environments.0comments
