Square Enix Finally Debuts the Highly Anticipated Marvel's Avengers

Marvel's Avengers

Marvel Avengers shown off, and it looks like an exciting tribute to the MCU

It's been a long wait, but during Square Enix's E3 media briefing, we finally got our first look at Marvel's Avengers.

We'll post more news regarding the game including gameplay once we have 'em. PS4 players will also receive some added content as part of a platform exclusive deal for the game, but details are now scarce on just what that content is. The Marvel's Avengers game is a single-player and co-op action adventure with RPG elements.

The move also follows in the footsteps of Marvel's recent Spider-Man PS4 game which hired a new actor to play Peter Parker, instead of using Tom Holland's likeness.

The trailer kicks off with an Avengers Day celebration in San Francisco to ring in the opening of the team's new West Coast headquarters.

As Marvel's Avengers exists in its own separate continuity, you won't see Chris Hemsworth or hear Mark Ruffalo's voice. A showcase later this week will feature the developers from Crystal Dynamics and the Marvel Games creative team talking about the game.

Marvel's Avengers is now slated to release on May 15, 2020, and will be available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia worldwide.

The new Avengers game was one of the mot anticipated titles being shown at E3, but a number of factors have left those excited for the game underwhelmed after watching the reveal. The Avengers are blamed for a seismic tragedy, and the Avengers disband.

The cast includes Troy Baker, Nolan North and Laura Bailey.

MCU fans can rejoice as Avengers have assembled not for a movie but for the game which you can play on Xbox or PlayStation. A game created to be "delivered over multiple years" with a heavy co-operative component doesn't sound like a conventional one-and-done campaign experience.

"The narrative will be delivered over multiple years, with no random loot boxes or pay-to-win scenarios", Square Enix say. Those who pre-order on PlayStation 4, however, get 7-day early access to the beta before it comes to other platforms.
