Marvel's Avengers has been something of a no-show since Square Enix announced a delay for the game back in January, but it seems that'll be changing soon. At the moment, it seems the game is still on track for a release in September, and we'll be getting a look at new gameplay next month.
On June 24, Square and Avengers developers Crystal Dynamics will host a "war table" stream to give us a fresh look at its team-up adventure, co-op footage in particular. So far, close to everything that's been seen of the game has been plucked from its opening single-player set piece, an A-Day catastrophe that ends with the Avengers losing one of their own, leading to their eventual disbandment.
In October we did get an early look at what happens after A-Day, along with an introduction to the character who seems like she'll pull the Avengers back together. Crystal Dynamics confirmed that Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel, will be part of the playable roster in Marvel's Avengers—we got a good preview of Khan's stretchy powers and plucky attitude in a new trailer, too.
Marvel's Avengers' delay from a May release was announced long before stay-at-home orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic went into effect. Today's stream announcement does note that Crystal Dynamics, like most developers, is now working remotely, but it ends by holding to the same previously announced release date: September 4, 2020.
So, as we creep into a summer set to feature big next-gen announcements and some major releases for current gen hardware, it looks like Marvel's Avengers is holding fast to its new date in spite of the pandemic. It'll be interesting to see what's new and different in next month's gameplay relative to our hands-on time with Marvel's Avengers from last year. Hopefully, the presentation gives us a solid idea of what to expect when it launches for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
