To close out its E3 2019 press conference, Square Enix finally took the wraps off its long-awaited and much-rumored Avengers game. After a few cinematic trailers, a quick chat with the voice cast, and more, the company eventually announced a release date: May 15, 2020.
A cinematic trailer showed the basic premise of the game: the Avengers become hated after an attempt at heroism somehow goes awry and results in mass casualties, but of course they come back together. The playable characters include five key Avengers characters with notable voice actors behind the roles: Captain America (Jeff Schine), Iron Man (Nolan North), Hulk (Troy Baker), Thor (Travis Willingham), and Black Widow (Laura Bailey).
The studio also promised an online co-op component, letting you team up with three friends to fend off increasing threats. It also promised the roster of heroes would grow over time with free DLC, and no random loot boxes.
It will launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia, though Square Enix says it has entered a partnership with PlayStation for early beta access and bonus surprises.
