Launching May 15, 2020
Beta is coming first to PS4, other platforms to follow. You can get into this beta by pre-ordering the game, no date on when beta will take place yet.
Square-Enix have confirmed they’ve entered into a multi-year partnership with Sony on this game
“Epic Action-Adventure with Cinematic Storytelling”
Up to 4 player co-op online but can be played solo offline if you want with the AI taking control of the other 3 heroes
Live service game with a regular content delivered over multiple years and an “Ever-Expanding Universe”
The plan is to release heroes as post-launch content
Roster of playable heroes at launch so far is Captain America, Thor, Iron-Man, Black Widow and Hulk with the presentation teasing Ant-Man although we don’t know if he’ll be available at launch or not
All new post-launch heroes and regions will be entirely free
“No lootbox or pay-to-win scenarios”
“Unique benefits to PlayStation players”
Crystal Dynamics’ take on Marvel Heroes and Villains
Story begins at A-Day celebrating Avengers West Coast Headquarters
Avengers are outlawed and disband following A-Day Tragedy
5 years after, an evil forces the Avengers to reassemble
Original story showcasing Marvel Heroism and Humanity
Story about self-acceptance in the face of adversity and learning that together we are mighty
Troy Baker is Bruce Banner, Jeff Schine is Captain America, Travis Willingham is Thor, Laura Bailey is Black Widow, Nolan North is Tony Stark
E3 COLISEUM DETAILS:
The Avengers and SHIELD decide to band together and have their own themed Helicarrier called the Chimera that houses the experimental technology that sets off the events of A-Day
Biggest challenge is that every character is so different, combat uniquely catered to each character, each characters “feels like its own game”
Each character has unique traversal, grappling hooks, wall jumps, flight, etc.
Only one hero is allowed, 4 Hulks won’t be running around per team
Can “straight-shot” the story by yourself, or jump-in/jump out instantaneously with your friends
For the single-player campaign, you will only be able to play the character that is designated per mission
Live service, but also very narrative focused, “can’t really compare it to any other game”
Said to “stay tuned” for people wondering where certain characters are
When asked about if Spider-Man and Avengers are connected, Bill Rosemann said that they “are just focused on making the best Avengers game”
