So, two years ago we received a teaser for an Avengers game developed by Crystal Dynamics (makers of the new Tomb Raider series) and published by Square Enix.
Yesterday, at Square's E3 2019 press conference we were finally given our first look at this new game.
The game is said to be a multiplayer action-adventure game where players can take control of one of the Avengers and play through various regions of the Marvel universe, all within a cinematic campaign story.
There will be 5 characters upon release (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Black Widow), but it has been announced that more characters, along with more story content, will be added at no additional charge on a regular basis. Hank Pym was briefly shown off at the end of the conference.
The game contains no loot boxes and no pay-to-win scenarios.
It's set for release on May 15, 2020 on Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Stadia. PlayStation users will receive beta access (with a pre-order of the game) and exclusive content not yet revealed. There will be a playable demo of the game on the show floor.
I've been excited for this game for quite some time, and tuned in to Squenix's conference especially for it. I'm still excited to play it, especially with my friends, and the talent behind this game has me pumped.
There's already been some controversy of the character designs, but personally I don't mind. What I really can't wait to see is the gameplay from the show floor once the conferences are over.
