Marvel’s Avengers are set to dominate the gaming charts in 2020 just like they dominated the box office for going on a decade. Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have a new video game on the way, as was revealed during the second day of E3 2019.
The 4-player action adventure game will feature Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk and Ant-Man. It looks like Hawkeye is being left out for now. Marvel’s Avengers is expected to ‘grow’ over time with new levels and characters, all of which will be available for free.
The upcoming game is being developed by Crystal Dynamics, the studio behind the recent Tomb Raider games. The lack of familiar faces would suggest the game operates outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Avengers was arguably the biggest announcement of the day. Although there were plenty of other great reveals. Over at Ubisoft, Watch Dogs Legion takes on a futuristic post-Brexit London setting, where you can play as anyone in the city, including a murderous grandma. While E3 Day 1 had Keanu Reeves on stage, day 2 had The Punisher – Jon Bernthal live, who is appearing in Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
The Final Fantasy 7 remake finally has a release date along with a new trailer, and a new rollerblading sport made its debut. All of this and more featured below.
