What is Marvel’s Avengers?

Marvel’s Avengers was first announced in 2017, but with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame taking the limelight, the project just sort of faded into the shadows.

Developed by Crystal Dynamics—the developer behind the 2011 Tomb Raider reboot—Marvel’s Avengers will feature some of your favorite heroes, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and Hulk.

In a cinematic trailer released during E3, we see a catastrophic event unfold. Attached to the gameplay trailer is an ominous description of the game.

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.

In an earlier teaser, a voiceover talked about the age of heroes being over.

“They say the time of heroes is over,” the voiceover says. “That if you’re different, you’re dangerous. But I know the truth. The world will always need heroes. We just need to reassemble.”

According to Marvel, the game will be “packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise.” Marvel’s Avengers will also feature a completely original story and introduce a universe that will span multiple games.

It’s unclear if the game will crossover with Marvel’s Spider-Man, which was released last year by Insomniac Games as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

What characters are in Marvel’s Avengers?

No official roster of characters has been revealed, but the developers have teased some big names set to make an appearance. Once a full roster is revealed we’ll be sure to update this post.

  • Thor
  • Iron Man
  • Captain America
  • Hulk
  • Black Widow

In addition to the characters mentioned above, the first teaser features a voiceover from an unknown female character.

Does Marvel’s Avengers take place in the MCU?

Based on what we know, it looks like Marvel’s Avengers will be separate from the storyline in the MCU. Although we’ll see some of the same characters, they likely won’t have a likeness to the actors who play these heroes on the big screen.

Plus, Marvel has said that the project is a completely original story and will introduce a new universe. It’s possible we may revisit some of the iconic moments seen in the movies, but by and large Marvel’s Avengers will have nothing to do with the movies.

Insomniac Games took a similar approach to Marvel’s Spider-Man. In that title, gamers were treated to an original story focused on a new Peter Parker (with an awesome original suit!). We fully expect Marvel’s Avengers to adopt a similar approach. It will feel familiar but also completely fresh.

Marvel’s Avengers gameplay

The trailer above is a mix of cinematic footage and gameplay, the latter of which looks similar to games like Marvel’s Spider-Man abd Rocksteady’s Batman series, where players fight NPCs and string together combos.

The game is said to be a service in the same vein as Destiny and Anthem, but few details about how this will work have been revealed.
