Marvel’s Avengers Revealed By Square Enix

Marvels fans finally got a chance to see what Square Enix’s Avengers looked like during their showcase at E3 2019. Even better than the latest look is the official release date set for May 15, 2020. While that may feel like a long way away, knowing exactly when it’s coming keeps us from reliving those Kingdom Hearts waiting days. 

Avengers Endgame may be over, but the Marvel adventures are definitely anew with what Square Enix showed off. In the video above, Marvel fans can see Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, and Hulk teamed up once more after the disastrous events that led to San Fransico’s destruction.  

Marvel explains the new game as: 

“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.”

We first learned that the new IP was going to get an extensive new look when Square Enix teased their Coliseum showcase earlier this month. According to the showing’s Coliseum listing, “Embrace your powers and join key members of the development team at Crystal Dynamics and the creative team at Marvel Games as they talk exclusively about the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers. This is the defining Avengers gaming experience: an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay. Moderated by Andrea Rene, assemble in teams up to four players, master extraordinary abilities, customize your heroes to fit your playstyle, and combine powers to defend an ever-expanding world under constant threat.”

The adventure begins on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 15, 2020.
