The Marvel Avengers was one of the most anticipated video games of the E3 2019 and Square Enix has not lost the opportunity to show it. Although perhaps without all the desired information. Marvel’s Avengers has been presented officially at the most important video game fair in the world with a cinematic trailer. The show has already allowed us to meet the group of superheroes that will give life to this action-adventure developed by Crystal Dynamics, authors of the latest videogames of the successful and acclaimed Tomb Raider saga.
The videogame of The Avengers situates its action five years after a catastrophe that has finished with the city of San Francisco, causing that the heroes of Marvel have broken the group. However, a new threat will lead them to reunite the team to save humanity. Who will form the team? Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor will star in this action video game that combines an original “cinematic story” with an exciting action that includes the possibility of enjoying the game alone, or together with friends thanks to its cooperative mode.
It is important to note that the title has its original story, so its narrative will not be related to the facts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, they hired a new cast of actors that will give life to each of the five superheroes: Nolan North (Tony Stark), Troy Baker (Bruce Banner), Laura Bailey (Black Widow), Jeff Schine (Captain America) and Travis Willingham (Thor).
As mentioned, the game takes us to San Francisco, five years after the Avengers broke up due to a tragedy that destroyed the city of California. “With all the superheroes declared illegal and the world in danger, the only hope is to reunite the most powerful heroes on Earth “, says the description.
Marvel’s Avengers will have a cooperative online mode for up to four players. Fortunately, there will be no system of microtransactions and also the scenarios and characters that will be added after the launch will be totally free. Users can customize the visual aspect of the heroes “almost unlimitedly”.
Square Enix confirmed that its partnership with Marvel will not be limited to this project, because in the future they plan to launch more games. Marvel’s Avengers will have a testing phase for the players who make the reservation on the PlayStation 4, although at the moment there is no date for this beta.
In addition to Crystal Dynamics at Avengers, other studios are working, such as Eidos Montreal, Nixxes Software and Crystal Northwest. The game of Square Enix will be released on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on May 15, 2020; it will also be compatible with Stadia and Xbox One X. Square Enix has highlighted that there will be no loot boxes, and all expansions of video games will be free. Unfortunately, there has not been video gameplay by Avengers that allows us to get a better idea of how this action video game will be enjoyed.
