Square Enix has finally revealedÂ more details for their much anticipated Marvel’s Avengers title they’ve been working on in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal. It may have been a long wait, but it certainly did not disappoint.
The official press sheet sets up the timeline of Marvel’s Avengers:
Marvelâ€™s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco â€” including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earthâ€™s Mightiest Heroes.
The gameÂ will feature 4-player coop, an original story, no randomized lootboxes and an ever-evolving story delved out for years to come. Better yet, they will not be charging for additional story-based content to ensure the user-base isn’t fracture. Hallelujah!Â While the trailer was devoid of details, the thirst for anything Marvel related is real, and I personally cannot wait to see what the title has to offer. With Insomniac’s Spider-Man title raising the bar so high, Avengers certainly has its work cut out.
Marvel’s Avengers is set to release on May 15, 2020 onÂ PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia and PC.
