If you’re lucky enough to be at E3 2019, a full playable demo of Marvel Avengers is available at the Square Enix booth.

We’ve assembled world-class developers from across the industry to bring players on an unforgettable journey,” said Ron Rosenberg, Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “To ensure a truly heroic experience for all players, we’re announcing that our narrative will be delivered over multiple years, with no loot boxes or pay-to-win scenarios. Every new Super Hero and region will be delivered to players at no additional cost if you own the core game. This is just the beginning of what we’ve got in store for our fans.

The starter Marvel Avengers line-up will consist of Iron-Man, Thor, The Hulk, Captain America and Black Widow. A teaser at the end of the show revealed Ant Man will join them soon. The game takes place as the Avengers are opening their West Coast Headquarters in San Francisco, and of course tragedy soon strikes, turning the entire city into a wasteland. You and up to three online friends will battle to defeat various enemy forces in what will be one of the biggest Marvel Avengers stories yet. Forget the Infinity Gems, A-Day is here and there’s a new generation of Avengers and a new enemy to defeat:

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 Entertainment and Square Enix are excited to unveil Marvel’s Avengers, an epic action-adventure game that combines cinematic storytelling with single-player and co-operative gameplay.

Crystal Dynamics is one of the industry’s most talented and respected game development studios, and we couldn’t be more excited about their ambitious vision for Marvel’s Avengers,” said Jay Ong, EVP, Head of Games at Marvel Entertainment. “It will thrill our fans and serve as a key part of Marvel’s storytelling, delivering an authentic and innovative take on our heroes as never been seen before. This game is what’s next for the Avengers.

As super fans, working with Marvel and these characters is a dream come true and we are excited to finally reveal Marvel’s Avengers to the world,” said Scot Amos, Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “This is our original take on these iconic Super Heroes. Leveraging our companies’ combined experience in epic action-adventure storytelling, we’re building a universe that fans will immerse themselves in for years to come.

The Marvel Avengers release date is May 15, 2020 and it will launch simultaneously on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Google Stadia. For more information, head to the official Marvel Avengers game website.
