For Marvel's Avengers, Square Enix didn't stop at just an action packed CG trailer. It also brought on a couple of folks from developer Crystal Dynamics to talk a little bit more about the structure of the game. Interestingly, it seems the campaign the game will launch with is largely a story driven affair, but statements thrown out by the pair who appeared onstage make it sound more like a service game.
Following the initial release of the game on 15th May 2020, Crystal Dynamics plans to support the game by adding new superheroes to control, new regions to explore, and more. You'll be able to squad up with other players online, and customise your heroes to your tastes. The team also confirmed no random loot boxes or pay-to-win.
After digesting the information, it sounds to us like Marvel's Avengers will primarily be a game similar in structure to Destiny; a main story to play through, alone or with friends, and then an ever-expanding world of new heroes to discover and new content to enjoy. It seems as though Square Enix is cramming as much as it can into this ambitious-sounding project.
