Square Enix Shows Off First Look at "Marvel's Avengers" Video Game
Jun 11, 2019
Years after a partnership between Square Enix and Marvel has been announced, the video game developer has shown off it's first look at Marvel's Avengers at E3.
As seen in the official trailer, 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 trailer, created from in-engine footage, is narrated by a young woman who met her heroes, the Avengers, on A-Day.
However, as the trailer reveals, the celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers, outlawed, disband with Captain America among those who were lost that day.
But that's not how this story ends. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal, Nixxes Software, and Crystal Northwest, Marvel’s Avengers will release simultaneously for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, Stadia and PC on May 15, 2020.
