Marvel’s Avengers launches May 15, 2020

Crystal Dynamics also said no loot boxes and no paid characters (free new characters), it's like slapping the face of EA.

Marvel’s Avengers launches May 15, 2020

An original Avengers journey begins.

Marvel’s Avengers will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia on May 15, 2020, Square Enix announced at its E3 2019 press conference.

Square Enix has also announced a partnership with PlayStation on Marvel’s Avengers, which it will share more information about—including “surprises for PlayStation players”—in the future.

Here is an overview of the game, via Square Enix:


Marvel’s Avengers invites players to live their Super Hero dreams. Outstanding storytelling and an ever-expanding universe come together in the definitive Avengers gaming experience. Master extraordinary abilities, customize a growing roster of Heroes, assemble into teams of up to four players, and defend the Earth from escalating threats.

Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco—including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Marvel’s Avengers features a cinematic story, complete with the high-octane action that Crystal Dynamics is known for. Featuring regular content updates, the game will take players on an epic journey delivered over multiple years. This is what’s next for the Avengers.

Key Features
  • Play An Original Avengers Story – Marvel’s Avengers is a unique take on these iconic Super Heroes, including Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor. This character-driven story celebrates authentic Marvel heroism and humanity in a cinematic campaign filled with single-player and co-op missions.
  • Embrace Your Powers – Unlock powerful skills and new gear to build your ideal version of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. When combined with original, fan-favorite, and classic outfits, there are nearly limitless ways to customize these iconic Heroes.
  • Assemble Online – Up to four players can assemble online to defend the Earth from escalating threats. The 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.

No Spidey, then I can save my money! Plus, they didn't show gameplay, probably just going to be a left 4 dead type game by the sounds of it. I hate how their faces look, reminds me of cosplayers at conventions.

It looks good, but still no gameplay. So, it's smoke an mirrors at this point and i still remain skeptic.

Edit: watched the presentation. They have SP with ongoing DLC story and a multiplayer mode where more heores will show up. That is actually a clever way to handle having multiple gameplay styles. So, i think it might be successful afterall.

After listening/watching Marvel movies for over 10 years now, it's very jarring to see/hear different likenesses of these characters. I absolutely hate how Black Widow looks.
