'Avengers' Thor game trailer highlights new look and city environment

What you need to know

  • Marvel's Avengers is an upcoming action game from Square Enix.

  • A new Thor video shows off another city environment and new look for the character.
  • You can preorder Marvel's Avengers for $50 through Amazon.

Marvel's Avengers is an upcoming action 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 missions. Instead of a sprawling adventure, the game came across as a brawler.

In an effort to fix this, it looks like the team changed the look of Thor. Instead of having disheveled hair, the team at Crystal Dynamics decided to tie his hair back. I'll be honest, Thor does look a lot better now. It seems like Comic Book was the first to report this.

The one concerning aspect of the trailer has to be the clunky animations. Hopefully, the team will continue to polish this aspect of gameplay before its May 2020 launch. It seems like there's still a lot of work to be done.

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.
