Synopsis

Marvelís 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 ó 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 Earthís Mightiest Heroes.

Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix are excited to unveil Marvelís Avengers, an epic action-adventure game that combines cinematic storytelling with single-player and co-operative gameplay. Developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos-Montrťal, Nixxes Software, and Crystal Northwest, Marvelís Avengers will release simultaneously for the PlayStationģ4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, Stadia, and PC on May 15, 2020.







June 06, 2019 (Original post before the reveal).

I'm really looking forward to Square Enix reveal of the Avengers game at E3. I think this might be the Avengers experience we've always wanted in a video game. Combining everything great from Ultimate Alliance, Cap's, Iron Man, Thor's movie companion games, Hulk's games, to Gazillion Marvel Heroes, Lego Avengers, Lego Marvel Superheroes, Future Fight, & Insomniacs Spider-Man. So far officially all that is known is that somehow the Avengers need to be reassembled indicating that they have been disbanded or defeated by one of their foes. The game will more likely be single-player with a co-op multiplayer mode. Square Enix will have a live reveal of the game at E3 on Monday June 10 2019 at 6 pm PT .

Yes for PC.
Let's hope the game is not overly priced with Denuvo DRM, DLC and most of all optimized for modest config. I'm very cautious knowing Square-Enix practices.
Modders might want to see Tomb Raider modding capabilities, as the game will probably use the same engine as Rise of the Tomb Raider since Crystal Dynamics are making the game.

I'll buy the game for sure on PC, but 6 months after release and price drop.

I'm a bit skeptical about this game but I really want this to deliver.
Gameplay looks fine, but I don't like characters facial, costume design (Captain America coming from Call of Duty lol), voice acting, the game looks too realistic and I don't like the premise with Avengers seemingly failing at protecting the city and being emo.

MUA 3 looks better than this game atm for me.

I agree about the facial & costume designs for Cap & Thor. Cap looks a bit too old in the face & Cap & Thor's whole costume just doesn't look right. As for voices I'm not really sold on Nolan North as Tony Stark. He's a great voice actor but I'm used to him as Deadpool. They could've gotten Eric Loomis or Adrian Pasdar or Marc Worden. I also don't believe that they actually killed off Captain America making him unplayable. That would be a huge mistake. Tony Stark, Bruce/ Hulk & Black Widow look great though. Iron Man's armor is ok I guess, his face plate could've looked better, but I wouldn't harp on that too much since he'll be wearing different suits throughout the game. They're trying to distinguish this as it's own universe apart from the MCU just like Spider-Man PS4 so I'm not complaining about Tony not looking like RDJ or Cap not looking like Chris Evans. I have my criticisms but overall I'm optimistic about this. The team behind this are definitely servicing fans announcing that there's no micro transactions or loot boxes or pay to win schemes for the game. Also new heroes that will be added to the game will be at no cost, so I'm happy about that. I'm looking forward to May 15 2020. One last thing... where is Hawkeye ?🤔

Post by: Teancum on June 11, 2019, 07:49am
My thoughts:

*First off this was clearly a mostly cinematic trailer. I don't think we saw 10 seconds of gameplay within it.
*No Hawkeye is disappointing
*I get that they probably cannot copy the likenesses of the MCU stars, but why do their costumes seem a bit off? Iron Man's helmet is horrible
*Personally speaking I don't want evolving world. I play Destiny 2 as my time-sink game. I don't need another one where I spend several hours every week.
*Alt costumes had better be a thing

Overall not really hyped. Cutscene looks fine, and I kind of like the story premise, but nothing got me excited.

I think I'm with Teancum, it just doesn't look like what I would've wanted in an Avengers game. Really I think MUA1 was the ultimate Avengers game.

Post by: Jaybird on June 11, 2019, 09:39am
I'm excited.I've been playing a lot of Warhammer Vermintide 2 lately and I think that's what we can expect from this. Where each character has their own unique skills and plays differently from the other characters. They said that they are going to update the game and add new characters, and areas over time. I'm sure Hawkeye will be the first they add to the game. I don't mind the voice actors or the costume design as long as each hero feels unique.

I really want to see the full 25 minute game play. Kind of disappointing to read that Iron Man feels the most restricted but then again it's the beginning demo, maybe throughout the game you'll be able to move freely in the sky . I can't wait to play as the Hulk, out of the Avengers the Hulk has had the best treatment when it came to video games. Thor sounds like a lot of fun to play as especially if his style is similar to Kratos in God of War. I expected Cap's combat style to be kind of like Arkham & Spider-Man PS4 since he does hand to hand combat & with the shield. Widow's will probably be similar to Cap's but with her signature style & moves.

Thx for posting the videos, I think I'll get motion sickness playing this lol, I don't like already the camera movements, camera view and camera zoom, there is way too much movements for my taste.
The game reminds me of Temple Run and Marvel Nemesis in a bad way.
Animations looks great at least with distinguishable fightstyle and great Black Widow butt.

Yup. Temple Run is a perfect description of gameplay. From what we see it feels very on rails. Nemsis, too. It's like we're playing as the stunt doubles of the MCU actors or something.

I'm very much not convinced.

Here are some articles I read recently from comic books.com
https://comicbook.com/category/marvels-avengers/

Some highlights for me were that the main story is single-player, and the side missions are co-op. You can't pick the same hero so no team of Ironman which as I said early reminds me of Warhammer Vermintide. Hawkeye has been confirmed and will probably be revealed before the game is released and there will be multiple skins.
I know the rest of you guys weren't impressed but I'm honestly excited.

Do you know how much SE is inspired from the movies, at least in terms of stuff like armors, perhaps sound effects? I'm in love with Iron Man's repulsor beam sounds.

I don't know. They have talked about working with a lot of writers who have experience with either the avengers as a whole or the individual members. I haven't read much about the MCU influence, I think it is safe to assume that some of the alternate gear will resemble the MCU costumes. For example, Thor's Stormbringer might be in the game.

I wish they would have copied the gameplay of Batman Arkham series.

Same. I was getting tired of seeing the A- Day demo. I at least now have an idea of how the game will actually be set up. I just hope in the hub worlds there's a good amount of space to fly as Iron Man or Thor.

Agreed. It seemed like they weren't ready for release because they didn't have much to show outside of the A Day demo, other than screenshots, tie -in comics, & a few alternate costumes. Hopefully this is worth the wait. I really WANT this game to be good. Because up until this point everyone had a " meh ' reaction to it as far as graphics, design, gameplay, plot, & marketing. The Avengers deserve to have the best game ever. The name alone is not going to make people love it. It has to be a good game FIRST worthy of the Avengers brand like Spider-Man PS4. So Godspeed Square Enix / Crystal Dynamics. Indeed " Whatever It Takes".

YAY!

I have to say my view on this game has turned around somewhat and I was thinking the other day that it had gone dark. I didn't even think about the fact that COVID would slow things down drastically. I still think I will probably just play through the main story beats, but I'm really warming up to a second go-to game when I'm bored.

Not sure what you're looking for:

**If you mean what changed for me -- Destiny 2 is my go-to, and I've slowed down on it because I've completed most everything. So now I'm ready for something to play alongside it.

**As far as COVID slowing things down --- see the trailer. Everyone had to work from home, and as an IT person myself, you have to acquire and set up equipment for every one of those people, which slows things down.

New Updates!

Today we got a more in depth look at gameplay, both single player & co-op. We got more details about customization in terms of combat skills & gear for the heroes. We see more maps, more about the story arc,  the game will be released on the PS5 as well. Also we got to see a few more new skins. I'm assuming that they're not revealing too much of those until after launch. (MCU Avengers Skins more than likely to be in the online marketplace.)  ( I want my heroes in their 2012 skins.) Overall I can say that I am looking forward to this game.

Watched a good chunk of this. I'm sold on the fact that additional content will be free, and co-op looks fantastic. My biggest issue now is the fact that the framerate doesn't look too hot in some of that gameplay.

Marvelís Avengers | July Wartable

Today we got more details on gameplay & the upcoming beta. Also a new hero was announced. And post launch details. Is anyone still not completely sold on this game? I think at this point if you're not , you probably won't be at all. There's 37 days left until launch & also I have good faith that whatever issues there may be at launch Square Enix will listen to the fans & consumers, & patch up & continue to update the game as it is going to be a Live Service Game. What are everyone's thoughts? Are any of you playing the Beta?

Agreed. That's like my only major issue with this game are the original designs. Can't really say I'm fond of them. & yeah alt costumes are definitely going to get my money in the online marketplace.

So the rumors are true. At first I did't want Spider-Man to be involved in this game at all. I wanted the focus to be on the core Avengers, but I would be lying if I said that I'm not excited for him to be in this game also. He's going to be added in early 2021 & he'll be exclusive to PlayStation ( Are you really surprised?) Thoughts?

I've bought the BETA on Steam, it does require a good machine!

However it is in my opinion a very solid game. The characters so far are really well fleshed out to be like their Comic book and MCU counterparts.

You start out taking turns as the original Avengers minus Hawkeye in the tutorial. After that, you get to play with Hulk and Kamala. After a mission, you just get Iron Man and Black Widow unlocked without playing their unlock missions for BETA purposes.

- Hulk: Hulk is him. He smashes. He has his Thunderclap as his Ultimate, a bull rush attack, can grab minor enemies and smash with them, throw debris from small to large size and use debris to spin around with. He has a Rage that can self heal. He smashes big.
- Kamala: My least favorite. She's a female Mr. Fantastic, so that's what you can expect in-game too. Great that she is her own character, still not a fan.
- Iron Man: Oh man. I'm torn between him and Hulk as favorites here. He plays just like MCU Iron Man! You can switch between weapon types too: Lasers, rockets or repulsors, and be in melee range. His Ultimate: Hulkbuster.
- Black Widow: I never thought I'd like BW as a character till I played this version. She feels agile, spy-ish. Uses batons and her pistols, and of course Widow's Sting. Her Ultimate is an overcharged suit and the batons are connected as a staff to deal insane damage with. She can also turn the party invisible, or herself.

You can level the characters up individually, and so far every War Table mission is replayable. This is great, as the characters do not level simultaneously.

If you like Arkham Asylum, then you'll like this too. Whilst it isn't exactly like it, it does have that combat feel to it and more paced.

All characters have a form of fast travel:
- Hulk can leap distances, larger when Sprint is held down.
- Widow can zip swing and grapple her way to enemies or ledges
- Kamala uses her creepy stretch arms
- Iron Man does what he does best: fly fast

The costumes tend to be more "realistic" looking, and all are custom save for Joe Fixit. That's about the only comic accurate costume I have seen so far. They do have some costumes, in particular Iron Man, that drew inspiration from the MCU. One looks more like the Mark 7, although a tad bit more bulky and iron-y.

I have to say, I disliked the designs however the gameplay is really good.

I've been playing the beta on PC all weekend, and I am quite pleased with it.
No, the melee combat is not up there with Batman Arkham games, but it is not rubbish, either.
Very nice graphics, the 6 characters you can play as all "feel" pretty different, especially once you start to spec into the talent trees.
A fair number of bugs and crashes, if you play solo the hero AI will sometimes glitch and just run into stuff.
I haven't felt like my money was wasted pre-ordering it.
If it is still up, a person on youtube looked into the exe (where have I heard that before) and found a whole stack of apparently already playable characters:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3T6MkrhkU0

I really enjoy the destructable environments, the city map is good for that (can't take down whole buildings a la Freedom Force though).
Lots of nods to the movies and comics in the powersets and moves.
I'm actually pretty excited.

Also, welcome home, Blaw. We kept your room just as you left it.

So after thinking about it more I think I'll jump in when this goes on sale, or maybe about a year in. It'll have had enough time to fix any flaws in gameplay that players don't like, and more content will be out by that time hopefully.

I'm not a fan of their business tactics, but this game really does look awesome. It would be super cool if an X-Men game was one day made in this style!

Post by: UltraMegaMagnus on August 18, 2020, 11:45pm
Business practice is not right at all, AAA game with mobile grind fest, PC optimization could be bad. I really like to buy on sales, but I fear it will be unplayable for me, and that business practice will really draw me away (Battle Pass, DLC, timed content, daily reward, Denuvo, Square Enix account, NO SPIDER-MAN ON PC). This is the kind of business practice that makes me feel bad when buying a game.

Post by: Bruce Bixby on August 19, 2020, 02:42pm
I had fun with the Beta on PS4, every character was fun to play. Iron Man is PERFECT & easy to control, & his moves & weaponry are powerful & stylish. Hulk is my favorite superhero but, he felt underwhelming on this game. Hulk gets staggered too much, & he shouldn't need to dodge that much like the rest of the heroes. His leaps need more reach & power in it, & he moves slow even while sprinting. & he can't pick up cars. I hope by the time launch comes that they'll improve him & his abilities. Black Widow is badass as expected & very fast in combat. Kamala is actually fun too she's grown on me even though I used her the least. As far as alternate costumes I really liked the Illustrious Iron Man costume & Hulk's "Big Green" skin. But other than that I'm not really a fan of Square Enix original designs. I'm excited for the list of characters that they'll be adding, even though the Spider-Man exclusivity sucks, (but hey that's business, hopefully they'll include him for other platforms too one day?). Overall I think this game has potential, I hope that it gets enough support so they can continually improve & have a long shelf life like DC Universe Online.

Marvelís Avengers | Launch Week WAR TABLE

Who's been playing the early access of the full game? Are you enjoying it? Me personally, I pre ordered the standard edition. Also I think the idea of cosmetics being timed is ridiculous. Kate Bishiop has been announced on the roster. Also I understand & respect the decision of them not announcing Black Panther at this time. I'm still excited for him in a bittersweet way though. What are everyone's thoughts?

There are a few things which grate a little, like timed cosmetics.
I'm not too bent out of shape about the paid for cosmetics like extra costumes, as I don't think anyone HAS to buy them.
I couldn't give a damn about emotes or nameplates, paid or free.
I'm playing early access and I'm having fun.
The campaign is pretty good but I'm only very early into it.
I've been surprised pleasantly by the variety of missions so far.
There have been standard go in and hit things missions, but also a stealth type escape from overwhelming odds level, and a fly as fast as you can while not taking damage mission.
It breaks it up and provides variety, which the beta didn't really show us.
I still like the gameplay, the diffferent heroes "feel" more different than either MUA or Marvel Heroes, and the strategies and tactics you use for each are pretty diverse, so far.
I think it could be played a s button masher, but there are dodges, blocks and parries, as well as combos and other status and AOE stuff to mix it up.
All in all, it looks really nice, plays well, and I like it.
It wont be to everyone's taste, and the monetization will irk a lot of people.
But the monetization will keep new heroes and costumes and missions appearing, for a while, anyway.

If you liked MUA even a little I think you'll probably like this too.

Man, I keep going back and forth. I'm interested again, partly because the next Destiny 2 expansion isn't out until November. I was thinking that 60 dollars for single player alone is probably worth it, and if I can get some friends into it then I'm set.

If you have a console, this game might be worth the investment as Crystal Dynamics keeps comms clear with console users.

With Steam though; That's Nixxis' ballpark. Their communication has been quite lacking even though it's been 2 weeks.
