Marvel's Avengers - website
Marvel’s Avengers will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia on May 15, 2020, Square Enix announced at its E3 2019 press conference.

Marvel’s Avengers invites players to live their Super Hero dreams. Outstanding storytelling and an ever-expanding universe come together in the definitive Avengers gaming experience. Master extraordinary abilities, customize a growing roster of Heroes, assemble into teams of up to four players, and defend the Earth from escalating threats.

Marvel’s 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—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 Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Marvel’s Avengers features a cinematic story, complete with the high-octane action that Crystal Dynamics is known for. Featuring regular content updates, the game will take players on an epic journey delivered over multiple years. This is what’s next for the Avengers.

tbh i am totally confused whats its supposed to be as most of the comments before call it mainly GaaS Coop title , but now i read this :-/

While the game has been announced as a four-player co-op game, developer Crystal Dynamics has confirmed the main campaign is a strictly single-player experience.

Confirmed in an article by IGN, A-Day will only feature single-player story missions. In the first mission that the IGN writer played, the game consistently switched between different members of the Avengers during an attack by Marvel villain Taskmaster.

Lead combat designer Vincent Napoli explained where multiplayer fits into the overall product. As players complete single-player missions, new multiplayer side missions open up that allow you to choose an Avenger and play with friends. Teams can only have one of each Avenger on a team.
Marvel's Avengers: A-Day campaign is single-player only - MSPoweruser

seems like even offline will be possible, but havent found info if the side coopable missions will be solo/switching chars/AI companions in offline
The single player content can all be played offline, which includes both the campaign and the side missions.

If you’d like to do the missions with multiplayer, then you’ll need to be online.

I enjoyed the this series back in the 360 days, but this game just doesn't look good to me. The only people I see going crazy are people that feel nothing tops anything the MCU brings. The reviews will have to be amazing for me to consider. Well, if it goes EGS, it's a day one purchase for me.*
