The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the work on many games as teams adjust to working from home so it’s understandable that we have not heard much from developers creating them, but that will change in the case of Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers as that will be getting a new ‘War Table’ broadcast next month.
The event will be occurring on June 24th and promises to show us new co-op gameplay, new story missions, and a general update on how the game is progressing. The title is still scheduled for September so hopefully the new broadcast won’t also include another delay to the release.
In Marvel’s Avengers players will control all the heroes at different points as well as in a co-op mode called Warzone Missions, and these can be played with up to four players.
Studio Creative Director at Crystal Dynamics, Noah Hughes, has detailed how co-op works. “There are two different types of missions: Hero Missions and Warzone Missions,” said Noah. “Hero Missions are single-player only and are part of the overall Campaign. These Hero Missions are specific canvases to showcase each hero as you reassemble them to your growing roster.”
“Warzone Missions can be played solo or with a group of up to four players as any Hero in your roster, allowing you to embody an Avenger within a team of Avengers! Each mission scales based on the team size and makeup.”
“While you’ll be taking control of iconic characters, player choice is important to our experience. Players can customise each of their Hero’s Gear, Skills, and choose from a diverse array of Outfits, all of which creates a personal experience.”
“For instance, one player might play Thor as an AOE damage dealer controlling the crowd, but an ally could build him up primarily focused on melee tactics. It is critical that we deliver the true feeling of being each unique Super Hero – it’s the Avengers after all!”
The last time we saw the game was back in February when the trailer below was release.
Marvel’s Avengers will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this September.
