At Square Enix's E3 press conference on June 10, the lid was lifted and fans got to see Marvel's Avengers for the first time. We don't really know much more than that, but in a breathtaking jump ahead of the curve, the studio also revealed post-release plans for the game before even showing off any gameplay. Square Enix announced it is playable at their booth during E3.

"We have a bespoke single-player campaign that is created to be one of those single-player experiences where you bounce between the different heroes", Crystal Dynamics' head of studio Scot Amos said to Game Informer. But unlike "Ultimate Alliance", "Avengers" will play as a more traditional over-the-shoulder third-person action game, similar to Crystal's "Tomb Raider" games. They include Captain America aka Steve Rodgers, Thor, Hulk aka Bruce Banner, Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff and Iron Man aka Tony Stark. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Check out the trailer in full below, and look for this one to hit PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 15th, 2020.

Creative director at Crystal Dynamics Shaun Escayg said it'll be both single-player and co-op (four players online) and it will feature a brand new original story - "a story about self acceptance", Escayg said. A game created to be "delivered over multiple years" with a heavy co-operative component doesn't sound like a conventional one-and-done campaign experience. But then, everything we've actually seen of the game looks exactly like "Spider-Man, but with the Avengers". There's no random loot boxes or pay-to-win scenarios.

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson all recently retired from their Marvel roles after the events of Avengers: Endgame, and putting new actors in the roles allow them to explore events already covered in the films without breaking canon. They will, however have early beta access for PS4 and platform specific benefits.
