Today, Square Enix revealed the Avengers game for Xbox One and other platforms. The game should launch on May 15, 2020 and features a number of heroes. There were rumors that the game would be showcased at E3 2019, but the title looks even more spectacular than what we imagined.
The game is based on the Avengers film franchise from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Beginning with Captain America: The First Avenger, the franchise offers Marvel fans a series of epic battles to save the galaxy by a band of Marvel superheroes. Many of its beloved heroes and anti-heroes appear across the Marvel films, including the Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow.
After a horrific event leaves San Francisco in ruins, the Avengers have been disbanded. However, an even bigger evil threatens the planet five years later, and it's up to you to assemble the crew and save the world once again. Laura Bailey, Nolan North, Troy Baker, and other acclaimed voice actors are part of the game. There's a strong cast behind the project, that's for sure.
Square Enix reiterated that the Avengers wouldn't free loot boxes or pay-to-win microtransactions. You can play the game with up to four players online. Additionally, all future regions and heroes will be free to all players in order to avoid fragmentation.
According to the Microsoft Store listing, the game runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X. We're guessing it's going to be locked at 30 frames per second (FPS) with a possible next-generation version pushing the visuals to 60 FPS.
