Marvel’s Avengers is an action and adventure video game for one player with online cooperative options that will invite us to embody the most powerful heroes on Earth. Developed by Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics, and Eidos Montreal, the title will take us to embody the famous Marvel characters such as Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, Iron Man, or the Black Widow throughout a world in continuous expansion.
A tragic event that will change everything
Marvel’s Avengers kicks off right on the so-called A-Day, a day of celebration of the Avengers in which the group of heroes inaugurates a new headquarters in San Francisco to the cheers of thousands of people gathered around. The high – tech headquarters includes a helicopter transport SHIELD completely powered by experimental and clean energy, which seems to change forever the use of fossil fuels. However, a group of mercenaries led by Taskmaster ends up destroying the entire bay of the American city, causing thousands of injuries and deaths.
The tragic event ends up marking the image of the Avengers, who are blamed for the consequences. The government decides to outlaw the superheroes and their interventions and the Avengers decide to separate and continue each one with their lives. The player’s mission will be to collect them and put them back into action. Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal have promised that it will be a spectacular and cinematic video game, with great action sequences and a great narrative in constant expansion.
Cooperative play and an ever-expanding universe
Marvel’s Avengers will allow us to control the most diverse characters, such as Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man or the Black Widow, and many other heroes that will be added little by little to the title. Each of them has its own playable nature and control, as well as special abilities that we can customize, improve, and empower our whim and way of playing. Although the title can be played alone, Marvel’s Avengers reveals its full potential with the cooperative between four players over the internet.
We will find missions for a player as cooperatives, always giving the user some freedom of choice. Square Enix’s approach to this video game is similar to that of The Division or Destiny, in which the title will receive new content in the form of adventures and characters, but without loot boxes, paid expansions, or pay-to-win models.
