So we have more news about Marvel’s Avengers, the newest game starring the biggest stable of iconic heroes that Marvel has. Crystal Dynamic’s new game will place players into the role of the iconic Marvel heroes, The Avengers. We do know that the game won’t be based on the MCU versions of these characters, a fact which caused some uproar among fans. We also know that the game will begin the roster with Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and Black Widow being main characters.
Now, we’ve got some more details about the gameplay in Marvel’s Avengers.
The gameplay loop is built around the concept of having missions that are unique to each character. For example, Black Widow will have a much more stealth-oriented series of challenges. Whereas Captain America will be much more direct and have plenty of frontline action.
This description still leaves a lot to the imagination, as gamers are still wondering what kind of game to expect to some degree, well now Crystal Dynamics has revealed some pretty key details. The game is actually a character action title with some very interesting twists. Players looking at a superhero game will expect plenty of action and brawling. And with more recent superhero outings, many expect some level of visual customization like alternate costumes. What’s a bit more surprising is that this title will have a full loot system, complete with rarity tiers and stat-altering bonuses.
As players play through the game, and take on more powerful enemies, they’ll unlock better and better loot. Players will be able to have independent customization between visual looks and mechanical bonuses. These gear changes will give you the option to completely change the most iconic Marvel characters in new ways. So if you want to deck out Hulk in a bunch of literal purple hats, you could be able to do that with this game.
It’s also worth mentioning that Marvel’s Avengers will have free DLC which will introduce new costumes and the like into the world of the new game.
Marvel’s Avengers launches in Mach 15, 2020 for Google Stadia, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
