The Marvel’s Avengers was first showcased to the public at San Diego Comic-Con in July. While parts of the footage did leak to the public, we now have it in good quality and released by Square Enix themselves.
The gameplay footage goes through the entire prologue which starts at the stage that’s set up for the Avengers during Avengers Day. The celebrations are quickly cut short as there’s an explosion in the distance. The game opens up as you get to play as Thor followed by Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and finally as Black Widow who takes on Task Master.
As she beats Task Master, there is no time to celebrate as the heli-carrier that Captain America is on explodes and he seemingly dies in the explosion. We then get to look at what seems like present-day as the Avengers are now disliked by the public and have disbanded. There’s a statue of Captain America and a memorial for all the people that were lost on A-Day.
The game seems to have been polished since Comic-Con but we can’t really confirm that. It looks interesting but this was just the prologue and we don’t know how the main game will play yet. However, we’re cautiously optimistic about this game and maybe it will turn out to be good.
