Crystal Dynamics got to show off its Marvel’s Avengers title last night, which now has a May 15, 2020 release date. In addition to the release date, we also got a first look at the game via a cinematic trailer, which you can watch above.
The game definitely isn’t based on the MCU, but it looks to include most of the core Avengers. The trailer sets up the story, but doesn’t really show any gameplay, which will be playable by yourself or with friends. It sounds like the game will get updates throughout the years too.
Additional details can be found below via the press release.
About Marvel’s Avengers
Marvel’s Avengers invites players to live their Super Hero dreams. Outstanding storytelling and an ever-expanding universe come together in the definitive Avengers gaming experience. Master extraordinary abilities, customize a growing roster of Heroes, assemble into teams of up to four players, and defend the Earth from escalating threats.
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. 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.
Marvel’s Avengers features a cinematic story, complete with the high-octane action that Crystal Dynamics is known for. Featuring regular content updates, the game will take players on an epic journey delivered over multiple years.
Square Enix is also excited to announce a global partnership with PlayStation and will share more details about surprises for PlayStation players in the future.
Players around the world will begin their journey in Marvel’s Avengers on May 15, 2020.
