Marvel’s Avengers is an upcoming action-adventure video game co-developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal and published by Square Enix. Based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers, the game is inspired by the long-running comic book mythology and adaptations in other media. The game’s main storyline takes place five years after A-Day, a celebratory day for the Avengers wherein a tragedy resulted in death and destruction, and the Avengers were blamed. The team is forced to reassemble to save the world from peril in the form of A.I.M. led by MODOK which threatens ending the world from superpowers.
The game features an online co-op mode, allowing players to assemble a team of heroes of their own. The playable characters include Steve Rogers / Captain America (Jeff Schine), Tony Stark / Iron Man (Nolan North), Bruce Banner / Hulk (Troy Baker), Thor (Travis Willingham), Natasha Romanova / Black Widow (Laura Bailey), Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel (Sandra Saad), and Clint Barton / Hawkeye.
The game will be released for Stadia, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 4, 2020. The game will also be released on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when both consoles launch, with PlayStation 4 players and Xbox One players being able to upgrade to the next-gen version for free.
The story begins on A-Day, where five of the founding members of the Avengers—Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow and Bruce Banner—are celebrating the unveiling of a second headquarters in San Francisco, including the reveal of their own helicarrier called the Chimera, powered by a Terrigen crystal. The ceremony soon goes awry when a terrorist attack led by Taskmaster results in the Golden Gate Bridge and most of the city being destroyed, as well as the death of Captain America. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband.
Five years later, the rebuilt city is now under the control of a science-based organization called A.I.M. led by George Tarleton, and superheroes—including those who were members of the Avengers—are outlawed. With the world in peril once more, a young Pakistani American Inhuman named Kamala Khan uncovers both superpowers of her own and a shocking conspiracy regarding A.I.M., and so she embarks on a quest to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, avenge Captain America’s death, and uncover the true culprit behind the A-Day incident.
