Coming out of the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show in June, Marvel’s Avengers was nevertheless a fairly large query mark for a lot of individuals. Publisher Square Enix did a large reveal for the game, but it focused on the story and cutscenes. It saved the gameplay for behind-closed-doors meetings. Now, nonetheless, the publisher has uploaded a video that gives a peek at action from the game’s prologue. And it appears a super-hero action game … surprise!
In the prologue, you manage the major cast of the Avengers super group. The camera jumps in between Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, and Black Widow. And the action for every single hero switches up to emphasize their strengths. Thor has lots of enemies to throw his hammer at. Iron Man has some flying enemies to chase. Hulk has hordes to smash. Cap has an enemy stronghold to infiltrate. And Black Widow has a distinct enemy that she can parkour onto for a 1-on-1 battle.
And yeah — every thing appears like you would anticipate. Iron Man plays like an action shooter with some on-rails segments, and Cap appears like a character-action game.
These segments of Marvel’s Avengers will probably reside and die on how satisfying it is to play as every single hero. Even though Insomniac Games (Sony’s most current acquisition) created Spider-Man function for the initial time in a lot more than 15 years. Square Enix and developer Crystal Dynamics face a a great deal tougher challenge in generating Hulk, Black Widow, and Cap all equally fascinating to play.
Marve’s Avengers gameplay is nevertheless a large query mark
This prologue action nevertheless maintains the mystery about the structure of the rest of Avengers. We know it is going to have some on the internet multiplayer elements, and it is a loot game at its core like Destiny or Diablo.
But it is unlikely that the rest of the game is going to have you bouncing in between characters as a great deal if the point is to upgrade gear for your characters. Right after all, if I’m attempting to deck out my Tony Stark, let me play as Tony Stark.
Square Enix is also promising separate single-player and on the internet multiplayer modes. And it is nevertheless not apparent how these will interact.
We’ll probably study a lot a lot more about Marvel’s Avengers as its Could 15 release day approaches. For now, we’ll have to take what Square Enix offers us.
