Square Enix took the wraps off of Marvel’s Avengers overnight. Well, sort of, because we got a thoroughly cinematic trailer which showed precious little of how the game will play or be structured.

Still, Marvel fans will no doubt be pumped to get their mitts on this when it drops on May 15th, 2020, just in time for us to get Cyberpunk 2077 wrapped up.

The game itself will be an action-adventure title with cinematic storytelling, single-player, and cooperative gameplay. It’s GaaS (Games-as-a-service) and will be continually updated with new story content, areas, and heroes to play as. Square Enix claims there'll be no loot boxes and no pay-to-win mechanics whatsoever.

“Marvel’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 — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source,” explains Square Enix.

“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 Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.”

Now, I barely know my Bruce Banner’s from my Loki’s so I’m no expert, but the characters in Marvel’s Avengers certainly don’t look or sound like the ones from the movies, nor do they particularly look like the comic variants. Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal are clearly going for their own thing here, although we’ll have to see how receptive fans are.

Marvel’s Avengers in out on May 15th, 2020, for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.

I'm all about doing your own thing in terms of Physical interpretations, but I expected a little bit more. Also.. How are you gonna tease an Avengers, and then (seemingly) reveal Captain America dies in what seems to be the opening of the game.........

Yea, but even then it still goes to show that you probably won't be able to play as Cap for a good portion of the game. Unless they literally kill him and go "oh here he is" thus making his death kind of insignificant (as most comic book deaths are anyway).

Seriously, considering the game studios & the money Marvel has, they could have made a better looking game.
