Square Enix has shown the first images of its new Avengers game. In the images you can see famous superheroes while they fight at the Golden Gate Bridge. The game will be released on May 15, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stages.
The trailer, from the game announced more than two years ago , shows the Avengers celebrating the opening of their location in San Francisco. The celebration is ruined by a number of explosions further on, after which the superhero group tries to stop the danger. However, this does not work and the Avengers are blamed for the attack. Five years later a great evil threatens the world and the superheroes must come together again to stop this. This makes the game seem to use story elements from earlier Avengers films.
The playable characters are the original Avengers: Captain America, the Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow and Thor. Players can play alone or in co-op with other users, both in single and multiplayer. New heroes and locations that are added to the game after release are free, there are also no lootboxes or pay-to-win items.
Square Enix makes the game in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, Marvel Games, Eidos Montreal, Nixxes Software and the recently opened Crystal Northwest. The game has an exclusivity deal with PlayStation, which allows players to get a beta test with that console and other extras that will be revealed soon.
