Marvel’s Avengers release date revealed alongside first trailer

Adjust Comment Print

A new Avengers trailer showed that players will be able to come together and take part in four-player online multiplayer co-op. If Square Enix can capture half of the drama that Insomniac did, it'll be a strong campaign indeed. Five years later, the Avengers have to reassemble to fight back against evil. Marvel's Avengers features the voice talents of Troy Baker (Bruce Banner), Jeff Schine (Captain America), Travis Willingham (Thor), Laura Bailey (Black Widow), and Nolan North (Tony Stark).

Because of this unprecedented attack, the Avengers are disbanded and outlawed by the government.

The first trailer for Square Enix's hotly-anticipated Marvel's Avengers video game has left fans of the MCU scratching their heads. However, for those anxious that Hawkeye won't have at least some kind of appearance in Marvel's Avengers, Marvel Games VP and Creative Director Bill Rosemann has suggested otherwise.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Launch Date Revealed in New Trailer
Altogether, this revelation is unlikely to be much of a surprise to anyone following the development of Final Fantasy 7 Remake . Further details about the new game are being kept under wraps but more information will be revealed this year at E3 in June.

But despite some impressive graphics and an intriguing story that seems loosely based on the Avengers: Disassembled comic book storyline, the trailer didn't leave as much of an impact as expected. It's a cinematic, character-driven campaign spanning multiple years. Crystal Dynamics also mentioned that they would be partnering with PlayStation to bring PS4 owners some special bonuses, like an early access beta and more. The game will drop on PS4, Xbox One, Stadia (yes, that new thing we didn't know about until the other day), and PC. There's no random loot boxes or pay-to-win scenarios. Crystal Dynamics says that all new heroes and regions will be free, though, so you won't have to keep paying for more content.

The implication that it will be Ant-Man (and a Hank Pym Ant-Man at that) who joins the team before Hawkeye has added an extra layer of consternation: Of course, there are theories about all this.
