After many years of speculation and intrigue, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics finally revealed the much-anticipated Marvel’s Avengers title with a trailer at E3 2019. The title is set to be released on 15 May 2020.
Based on what is seen in the trailer, the game is located in San Francisco. During a meet and greet with the Avengers, there is an attack on the Golden Gate bridge, which turns out to be a diversion for the destruction of the reactor within their ship, causing devastation to the city. With the city in ruins and the Avengers being blamed for it, the team is forced to take responsibility for their actions. It seems that the Avengers will have to gather the courage to fight back in order to protect what they love.
