Square Enix has revealed the Marvel’s Avengers launch trailer, which you can watch using the player below. Developed by Crystal Dynamics, the game will release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC on September 4 (pre-order at Amazon).
Marvel’s Avengers will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when the consoles launch this holiday. Players who own the current-gen version of the game will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version at no additional cost.
Those moving their saves to next-gen consoles will transfer their player profiles and progression so they can pick up right where they left off. I
n addition, cross-gen play will be supported so PS5 players will be able to play with their friends on PS4 and Xbox Series X players will be connected with their friends on Xbox One.
Marvel’s Avengers offers players a truly rich experience, with a combination of Hero Missions and War Zones. Hero Missions are single player only and are part of the initial Campaign. They are designed to showcase each hero’s unique abilities as you reassemble your growing roster.
War Zones can be played solo or with a group of up to four players as any Hero in your roster. Each mission dynamically scales based on the team size and player level.
Players in Marvel’s Avengers are also able to customize Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in a number of ways. While each Super Hero plays true to their unique power sets, each has the flexibility to play differently based on the gear you equip them with and the skills you enable, so no two player’s heroes plays in exactly the same way.
Each hero has dynamic combo systems, Heroic moves, an intrinsic ability, and signature move sets to unlock and customize – many inspired by classic moves from the 80 years of Marvel history in all media, others crafted as originals just for this game.
Players also customize these iconic Super Heroes with classic, fan-favorite, and all-new original outfits, many of which are inspired by over 80-years of Marvel history, including Iron Man‘s suit from the 2014 Original Sin storyline, or Thor‘s Donald Blake identity, which is a nod to an alias of Thor’s who first appeared in 1962’s Journey into Mystery issue #83.
Marvel’s Avengers is an ambitious game, starting with a global high-stakes race to reassemble and rebuild the Avengers. But that’s just the beginning. To ensure a continuing heroic experience for all players, the narrative of Marvel’s Avengers expands, and threats escalate with each new post-release Super Hero, region and story arc delivered to players at no additional cost once they own the core game.
It was previously revealed that Clint Barton’s Hawkeye will be one of the first heroes added to the game after launch at no additional cost. In an original story-arc inspired by some of the best-known Hawkeye moments in the comics, players wield Clint’s iconic high-tech bow and trick arrows in missions either solo or co-op online with friends.
Hawkeye’s story will continue to move the entire Marvel’s Avengers narrative world forward, and all new missions are accessible with the entire roster of playable heroes.
Crystal Dynamics has also already announced that their take on Spider-Man will exclusively be coming to PlayStation consoles at no additional cost in early 2021.
