The Square Enix E3 2019 live stream event included a lot of good news for Marvel and RPG fans.
Not only is Final Fantasy 7 Remake arriving next year but it has also been confirmed that it will be joined by the new Avengers game.
The official release date has been set for May 15, 2020, on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Marvel fans will get to play as Captain America, Black Widow, Thor and The Hulk, among other characters being planned for the game.
Online multiplayer was revealed as being a big part of the Avengers game, which was first announced at E3 sometime ago.
Compared to last year’s no show, fans learnt a lot about the new game, although much still remains to be confirmed about the story structure.
The Avengers end up getting outlawed due to an accident but jump back into years later following the rise of a significant threat.
“We are excited to unveil Marvel’s Avengers, an epic action-adventure game that combines cinematic storytelling with single-player & co-operative gameplay, developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos Montréal, Nixxes Software, & Crystal Northwest,” a message from The Avengers team reads.
“Master extraordinary abilities, customise a growing roster of Heroes, assemble into teams of up to four players, & defend the Earth from escalating threats.”
As confirmed by Crystal Dynamics, The Avengers will be part of their own universe and won’t share any story details with the popular movie world or comics.
It was also confirmed that PS4 players would get the chance to play The Avengers game first, via a beta test on PS4.
Players will need to pre-order the game to get beta access, and it also appears that other platforms may get access after the PlayStation platform.
