Marvel’s Avengers - Crystal Dynamics

After months of speculation, Square Enix has officially unveiled Marvel’s Avengers.

Square Enix confirmed during last night’s E3 2019 press conference that everyone’s favourite team of super heroes will assemble on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC on May 15, 2020.

Marvel’s Avengers is a co-op, online multiplayer game for up to four players, threaded with a cinematic narrative. Although no gameplay footage was shown during the press conference, the new Avengers cast was introduced in a reasonably entertaining cinematic trailer. Nolan North leads as Iron Man, and is joined by Travis Willingham as Thor, Jeff Schine as Captain America, Laura Bailey as Black Widow, and Troy Baker as The Incredible Hulk.

Crystal Dynamics has long terms plans for the game, saying that regular content updates – including new locations and heroes – will be added over multiple years.

Speaking about the project, Marvel Entertainment’s Jay Ong says:

“Crystal Dynamics is one of the industry’s most talented and respected game development studios, and we couldn’t be more excited about their ambitious vision for Marvel’s Avengers. It will thrill our fans and serve as a key part of Marvel’s storytelling, delivering an authentic and innovative take on our heroes as never been seen before. This game is what’s next for the Avengers.”

Ron Rosenberg, Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics, adds:

“We’ve assembled world-class developers from across the industry to bring players on an unforgettable journey. To ensure a truly heroic experience for all players, we’re announcing that our narrative will be delivered over multiple years, with no random loot boxes or pay-to-win scenarios. Every new Super Hero and region will be delivered to players at no additional cost if you own the core game. This is just the beginning of what we’ve got in store for our fans.”

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
