Square Enix Releases First Official Gameplay Footage For ‘Marvel’s Avengers’, Coming May 2020
Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix have today released the first official gameplay video for ‘Marvel’s Avengers’, which is due to arrive on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on Friday, 15th May 2020.
The story-driven, third-person action-adventure game lets players reassemble and rebuild their Avengers roster in an original, cinematic single-player campaign, then battle solo or online alongside friends in new missions around the globe. They can also customize Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and harness their unique powers to defend the world from escalating threats for years to come.
‘Marvel’s Avengers’ begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, 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.
The video above shows off Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor as they battle Taskmaster and his army of mercenaries in the opening level – a Hero tutorial where players learn the unique powers of the Avengers. Additionally, for those of you heading to Cologne for GamesCom 2019, the A-Day demo is playable for the first time at the event.
‘Marvel’s Avengers’ will release simultaneously for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, Stadia, and PC on Friday, 15th May 2020.
