Marvel’s Avengers: Details players need to know

Marvel’s Avengers is a third-person, action-adventure game that has combined the elements of the MCU with cooperative gameplay. The game has featured six playable characters, which are:

  • Captain America
  • Iron Man
  • Black Widow
  • The Hulk
  • Thor
  • Ms. Marvel

Game leaks have hinted towards other characters too, but their date of release remains clouded in mystery. Moreover, there is a paid battle pass for each hero that will unlock additional features. This essentially means that the characters in the game might be free of cost, but additional skins and other emotes can only be unlocked through a battle pass. Completing daily and weekly challenges will also enable the players to unlock more items in the game.

The story and gameplay are pretty interesting and the Avengers are evidently the heart of the game. It starts with A-Day, which is the Avengers Day in San Francisco.

The Golden State Bridge is attacked, which calls for the Avengers to assemble. To add to their misery, this attack is staged and functions as an ambush forcing the team to get outlawed leaving the world in a state of peril. The story continues with the player using Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel) as a catalyst to reassemble the Avengers to stop Advanced Idea Mechanics from fulfilling their disastrous plans.

Playing online and unlocking character abilities

Playing online with friends is possibly the most intriguing feature of this title. The players will be able to unlock new items, upgrade their team of superheroes, and complete missions. Marvel’s Avengers will evolve with time with the inclusion of more villains, superheroes, and areas in the game.
