That first trailer showed only fleeting glimpses of gameplay, sadly. But now we’re getting a really good look at the game—which comes from publisher Square Enix and developer Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal, Nixxes Software, and Crystal Northwest—in the form of a 19-minute A-Day prologue gameplay video.
You can find more info and check out the gameplay video below.
We brought the first hands-on playable demo of Marvel’s Avengers to Gamescom 2019 in Cologne, Germany. Now, we’re bringing footage of the entire A-Day prologue to you. The majority of the demo takes place on the Golden Gate Bridge, which Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, and Black Widow are busy protecting. As the tutorial level for Marvel’s Avengers, you’ll get the chance to see what each Avenger is capable of in combat, but also who they were as Super Heroes.
In battle, Thor utilizes Mjolnir in more-than-worthy ways, including the ability to pin an enemy down. Iron Man’s intellect shows with the multitude of weapons at his disposal, each with their own form and function. Hulk ravages with rage as he uses enemies as weapons and digs into the ground for chunks of debris to lob at foes from afar. Captain America wields his iconic shield to dispose of enemies both near and far. Finally, Black Widow takes down the villain Taskmaster with her exceptional reflexes, quick thinking, and spy tech.
After defeating Taskmaster, the Avengers realize that he was just a distraction. The Chimera Helicarrier explodes with Captain America aboard while the rest of the Avengers watch in horror. Although they don’t realize it yet, the true villain that pulled the strings during A-Day was Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM). They believe that science, not Super Heroes, will save the world. Reassemble Earth’s Mightiest heroes to take on AIM in Marvel’s Avengers.
With a plethora of outfits for each character, an original Avengers story, co-op gameplay with up to four-players, and now, the threat revealed, Marvel’s Avengers will be a game for fans all over the world.
Voicing the team is Nolan North as Iron Man, Laura Bailey as Black Widow, Troy Baker as Bruce Banner, Travis Willingham as Thor, and Jeff Schine as Captain America. You can find a previously released video introducing the cast below along with a brief clip featuring Hank Pym if you haven’t seen them yet.
The game will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google’s upcoming Stadia platform. You can pre-order a copy on Xbox One and PS4 now if interested.
Marvel’s Avengers is scheduled to hit store shelves on May 15, 2020.
