Notably, the character models for the Avengers are drastically different than their Marvel Cinematic Universe counterparts. So no Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark or Chris Evans as Captain America. Instead, Crystal Dynamics has created custom looks for each character. The plot line seems to very loosely borrow some narrative threads from Marvel films like Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. In the game, the Avengers are blamed for an attack and question the responsibility and accountability of superheroes in modern society. Yet it sounds like the storyline will be unique to the Marvel universe.
Among the playable characters includes Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor. Crystal Dynamics as recruited some notable voice acting talent, including Troy Baker and Nolan North, to voice the five heroes. The studio says the game will have four-player, online co-op play, and there will also be numerous games in the series, with a multi-year planned for the narrative. The game will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia, and it’s releasing on May 15th, 2020
