I don’t see Jack of Hearts
We are a little over a week away from the launch of Square Enix’s squad-based superhero showdown, Marvel’s Avengers. The publisher has released one final story trailer in efforts to stoke the hype fires ahead of the game’s September 4 launch.
In the short, one-minute preview, we are given a brief overview of the story, which sees The Avengers disbanded after the catastrophic events of “A-Day” which saw a devastating super-villain attack lay waste to San Francisco. With the city now under the rule of A.I.M., and all superheroes outlawed, it is up to plucky inhuman Kamala Khan to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to take on the oppressive ruling body of A.I.M. and uncover the truth behind that fateful day.
Marvel’s Avengers puts players in the super-suits of famous heroes such as Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Ms. Marvel. Marvel’s Avengers boasts four-player co-op and very deep, microtransaction-driven customisation options. Following several gameplay live streams and a round of betas, it seems that many fans are still wary of the new release. The title still has much to prove. Either way, we’ll find out soon enough whether Marvel’s Avengers captures the heart, spirit, and excitement of its legendary comic counterpart.
Marvel’s Avengers launches September 4 on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
