Avengers character spotlight highlights Captain America and snowy area

What you need to know

  • Marvel's Avengers is an upcoming action game from Square Enix.
  • It's supposed to launch in May 2020.
  • A new Captain America video shows off a new environment.
  • You can preorder Marvel's Avengers for $50 through Amazon (opens in new tab).

Marvel's Avengers is an upcoming game from Square Enix, but the reveal didn't go as smoothly as the company anticipated. When Avengers was announced a few months ago, people criticized it for the "distorted" character faces and linearity of the mission. Instead of a sprawling adventure, the game came across as a linear brawler.

While we always knew that the game would feature a number of environments, we got a taste of a new region in Captain America's profile. There's a region covered with snow where the first Avenger battles enemies that are similar to what we saw during the A-Day prologue. You can take a look at it below.

The Avengers game takes place after a horrific event leaves San Francisco in ruins. The team has been disbanded for five years, but when an even bigger evil threatens the planet, it's up to you to assemble the crew and save the world once.

Developer Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix have vowed to improve the game before its May 15, 2020 launch.
