Updated August 20, 2019: Square Enix provided a high-quality version of the video at Gamescom 2019. The video has been updated to the official version below.
A few weeks ago, Square Enix revealed an Avengers game for Xbox One and other platforms. The title should launch on May 15, 2020 and features a number of heroes. Unfortunately, only those attending E3 2019 and Comic-Con 2019 were able to see the footage. Luckily, that changed today because someone uploaded it to YouTube.
The footage gives us a taste of the combat during the prologue. The action is visceral and each hero has signature moves. Oddly enough, Thor seems like the most well-rounded character at the moment. 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.
What do you think of the gameplay? According to publisher Square Enix, a high-quality version of the footage should be released after Gamescom in August.
The publisher reiterated that the Avengers wouldn't feature loot boxes or pay-to-win microtransactions. Additionally, all future regions and heroes will be free to all players in order to avoid fragmentation.
