Here's everything we know so far about the Marvel's Avengers game, including the release date, E3 reveal, A-Day story setup, and more.

The Marvel's Avengers game from Square Enix has now finally been revealed in full. The Avengers have been entirely redesigned for this new and original story by Crystal Dynamics, and it sure is throwing people a bit. In this guide compiling all the details we know about the Avengers game so far, we'll be going over the Marvel's Avengers release date, all the new trailer footage we've seen right now, and more.

Avengers Gameplay

For a while, none of the gameplay that had been shown off for Marvel's Avengers was available online. This changed during gamescom 2019, as a huge gameplay trailer was released. You can check it out below, but itbasically runs through the entirety of the prologue mission. The action switches from Thor, to Iron Man, to Hulk, to Captain America and then finally to Black Widow. Taskmaster is seen as the main villain here, and has a big showdown with Black Widow at the end.

Marvel's Avengers Release Date

The Marvel's Avengers release date is now September 4, 2020, having been recently delayed. Square Enix revealed that the game will be releasing on the PC, Stadia, PS4, and Xbox One.

Marvel's Avengers E3 2019 Reveal

At Square Enix's E3 2019 showcase, Marvel's Avengers was unveiled for the first time. We now finally know that it's a third person action game, combining the characters of Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, and Black Widow.

You can play Marvel's Avengers either in single player, or co-op. It's entirely original adventure, being redesigned by Crystal Dynamics for an all knew adventure. The game begins when the launch of the Avengers HQ in San Francisco goes wrong, and the Avengers temporarily disband.

This is an original story for Marvel's Avengers. But you'll still recognise all the abilities of characters like Iron Man with his lasers, Captain America with his shield, and Hulk with his rage.

Marvel's Avengers will be a live service game. Crystal Dynamics revealed there will be new content for the game after launch constantly, and even hinted at a growing roster of heroes after launch.

Marvel's Avengers Cast

At E3 2019, the cast for Marvel's Avengers was revealed for the first time. Troy Baker plays Bruce Banner/Hulk, Laura Bailey plays Black Widow, Travis Willingham plays Thor, Nolan North plays Iron Man, and Jeff Schine plays Captain America.

Marvel's Avengers Trailer

Back at E3 2017, the cinematic trailer below announced the mysterious Marvel's Avengers game for the first time. Crystal Dynamics was named as the lead developer on the game, who previously worked on the past two Tomb Raider game, including the 2013 reboot and the 2015 sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider.

In the brief teaser trailer, we can see Captain America's shield, Iron Man's gauntlet, and Thor's hammer. If those characters are playable in the game, then it stands to reason that the Avenger's game should revolve around a team of the more traditional Avengers, like 2012's Avengers Assemble from Joss Whedon that included the likes of Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk.
