Square Enix Finally Debuts the Highly Anticipated Marvel's Avengers

Unlike a certain web-crawler who is known to cross pass with the super hero team, Marvel's Avengers will not include an open-world map.

Yesterday, Square Enix dropped one of the biggest bombshells at this year's E3 with the official reveal trailer for Marvel's Avengers. Beginning with Captain America: The First Avenger, the franchise offers Marvel fans a series of epic battles to save the galaxy by a band of Marvel superheroes.

Simply titled Marvel's Avengers, it'll be releasing on May 15th 2020 on PS4, Xbox One, Stadia and PC, with an early beta access for PS4 players (with more benefits "to be revealed in the future" for PS4 players). Avengers can be played as a singleplayer game or with up to four players in co-op.

Marvel's Avengers will soon be returning to our screens, but not as you'd know them - or probably want them.

The story kicks off with the team unveiling a high-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco along with their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. PS4 players will also receive some added content as part of a platform exclusive deal for the game, but details are now scarce on just what that content is. Now, at the E3 Expo, these gatekeepers unveiled Marvel's Avengers in the first trailer. If Square Enix can capture half of the drama that Insomniac did, it'll be a strong campaign indeed.

Marvel's Avengers has clearly taken some influence from Marvel's Cinematic Universe, most noticeably in Bruce Banner's purple shirt.

Every new superhero and every new region will be delivered at no additional cost. "I can play 99 per cent of that single player, but there are also pieces that we encourage you to go play in multiplayer, and that actually do further the story". Furthermore, the developer confirmed to rapturous applause that neither pay-to-win purchases or loot boxes will be added to the title in any form.
