  • Marvel's Avengers takes place after a tragic event disbands the team.
  • People no longer trust superheroes and robotic AI have taken their place.
  • Kamala Khan gets the team back together to uncover a conspiracy.

The latest trailer for Marvel's Avengers gives us a better picture of the kind of world our heroes wil be in. After the events of A-Day left San Francisco in ruins and the team disbanded, an organization called Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM) takes their place and pledges to protect the world. But not everything is as it seems, and it's up to Kamala Khan to get the Avengers back together and uncover the conspiracy behind A-Day.

Along your journey you'll establish a base of operations in a decomissioned helicarrier which, according to Square Enix, is upgraded throughout the story. It's here that you can customize your characters and assemble a team to play online or go it solo. Over 80-years of Marvel history have inspired the new and old comsteic outfits your characters can wear. Along with cosmetics, you'll also earn gear that can drastically change your playstyle.

Marvel's Avengers is set to launch on May 15, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC.
