Crystal Dynamics Releases 'Marvel's Avengers' Game Overview Video
A new video from Crystal Dynamics, the development team behind Marvel’s Avengers, was released today that delves into some of the areas gamers have been asking about, like gameplay, mission variety, and character customization.
So far I’m loving the sounds of it, with single player Hero Missions that are part of the campaign and Warzone Missions that can be taken on with up to three friends – or you can choose to go it alone. I had a blast soloing some of the group content in Destiny, so I hope Marvel’s Avengers has the same sort of ‘super challenging, but doable if you’re careful’ setup for the Warzone Missions.
And if not…I can always invite some friends.
Also super exciting, at least for Hulk fans, is a shot of Joe Fixit. Outside of the Professor Hulk, he’s hands down my favourite of the jade giant’s iterations so I’m happy to see he looks great in the game.
Here’s the press release:
GAME OVERVIEW VIDEO DELVES DEEPER INTO MARVEL’S AVENGERS
In a new video released today, the Crystal Dynamics development team provides a deeper dive into Marvel’s Avengers gameplay, story, AIM narrative, mission variety, Super Hero customization, and much more.
Marvel’s Avengers offers players a truly rich experience, with a combination of Hero Missions and Warzone Missions. Hero Missions are single-player only and are part of the overall Campaign. These Hero Missions are designed to showcase each hero’s unique abilities 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. Each mission dynamically scales based on the team size and player level.
Players in Marvel’s Avengers will also be able to customize Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in a number of ways. While each Super Hero will play true to their unique power sets, each will have the flexibility to play different based on the gear you equip and the skills you enable. Each hero has dynamic combo systems, Heroic moves, an intrinsic ability, and signature move sets to unlock and customize. You’ll also be able to customize these iconic Super Heroes with classic, fan-favorite, and all-new original outfits inspired by over 80-years of Marvel history.
To ensure a heroic experience for all players, Marvel’s Avengers narrative will progress over multiple years with every new post release Super Hero and region delivered to players at no additional cost if you own the core game.

Finally, in case you missed it, earlier this month we revealed that fan-favorite Kamala Khan, Ms. Marvel, is the latest playable Super Hero in Marvel’s Avengers. Players begin their journey as Kamala Khan and learn the origins of her extraordinary powers. As the story expands, Kamala plays an essential role in bringing the disbanded Avengers back together. As each Super Hero rejoins the roster, players must master their unique abilities, rebuild and customize the team to face increasingly evolving threats only the Avengers together can defeat.
