Square Enix’s Avengers game finally released a trailer during the E3 2019 press conference. Two years ago, Marvel Entertainment revealed it was working with Square Enix. The new game has some major developer which involves Eidos Montreal studio and Crystal Dynamics studio, the developer behind the Tomb Raider Reboot.
Notably, the character models for the Avengers are drastically different than their Marvel Cinematic Universe counterparts. So no Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark or Chris Evans as Captain America. Instead, Crystal Dynamics has created custom looks for each character. The plotline seems to borrow some narrative from Marvel films, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. In the game, the Avengers are blamed for an attack and question the responsibility and accountability of superheroes in modern society. Yet it sounds like the storyline will be unique to the Marvel universe.
A-Day changed everything. But that’s not where this story ends. Together with @SquareEnix, we’re excited to unveil Marvel’s Avengers!
