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.*

leaked gameplay and commentary of the leaker
The game was announced to be able to play online with friends. There will be different suits for each hero some inspired from comics, others from movies and others completely original, there will be skill trees for each character too. Plus taskmaster was announced, yet he had a really(in my opinion) bad suit.

That confirms the superiority of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 I guess >_>

What kind of soldier type dudes, evil as they may be, go up against freaking Thor when not in cartoon style? They can't not know they'll get pummeled.

Should have devised some alien/robot/whatever threat for the disposable mooks.

Tony's gameplay seems meh, but Hulk is close to Prototype and Radical's Hulk games (which is good) and looks like Cap/Widow are decent takes on Arkham. It can go either way.

ComicBook.com had the chance to speak with Crystal Dynamics Senior Brand Director Rich Briggs about how long the game will be for players diving in, and while it will vary depending on your choices, we did get a ballpark idea of how much time you'll be spending in the Avengers world before more content is released, and it's a format Tomb Raider fans will recognize.

"I think it'll depend on exactly how deep you want to go into it," Briggs said. "So if you think about previous Crystal games, you know that if you want to be playing your way through the core story, it's going to be in that area, 10 to 12 hours."


"But if you want to see everything there is, and do all the side missions and everything else, you're generally looking at 30 plus hours in the Tomb Raider games," Briggs said. "So we're not putting exact numbers on it just yet, but you can expect something comparable to what we've done in the past with that regard. And then, of course, you have the extended narrative and the extended game plan, more heroes post-launch."

So it seems you'll at least have around 30 hours or so of content to play through if you really want to get the most out of your experience, but as the developer has previously stated, they have years of content they want to release for the game, so there is plenty more coming down the road.

This game is shaping up nicely. They've shown more stuff it actually makes sense now. Oh, and Ms Marvel is just so adorable.

I'm looking forward to playing it, but not at launch at that price.

Yup, the more I watch the more I like it, sure it might not be what MCU fans expected but IDK, looks fun.
