At long last Square Enix has revealed its Avengers game in a cinematic trailer showing the superteam fighting enemy militia in San Francisco. We're going to be able to climb into the suits of Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Black Widow. We don't know who the enemy will be but we do know that it starts with the Avengers failing.
It's A-Day, the day the Avengers are opening their West Coast headquarters, allowing them to protect peace and freedom from a nice sunny city. Plus, it makes the commute to Hollywood all the easier. However, when the Avengers come under attack, their helicarrier is destroyed and wreaks destruction on the city. The backlash forces the Avengers to disband and the game's story picks up five years later.
You can watch the trailer below:
Naturally, the world will come under threat once again and the Avengers will need to reunite to fight the big bad. Again, what that bad is hasn't been announced but presumably it will be Hydra, judging by the militia in black suits that jump the heroes in the trailer.
Marvel's Avengers can be played in co-op and the story will be expanded in the future, adding in more heroes from the universe to play as. Though, we didn't actually see any gameplay in the trailer to know exactly how you will control the characters.
While it's been a long wait for Square Enix's Avengers game, we still have a ways to go before it's released with the launch date penned in for May 15, 2020.
The trailer has left me with some questions, questions which you should probably skip if you haven't seen Avengers: Endgame.
Okay, Endgame spoilers commencing below.
It looks like Thanos is returning to Fortnite
Did Square Enix take so long making this Avengers game that Marvel killed off three of the game's five starring characters? (Well, Cap isn't technically dead but he's not going to be fighting much anymore). Where in the fiction is this game going to be set, or does it not tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe at all?What did you think? Was it worth the wait? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
