The game will be released for Google Stadia, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 15, 2020.

Synopsis[edit]

Characters[edit]

Marvel's Avengers features a large roster of characters drawn from the Marvel Universe, consisting primarily of the title team members and other superheroes, such as Captain America (Jeff Schine), Iron Man (Nolan North), Hulk (Troy Baker), Black Widow (Laura Bailey), Thor (Travis Willingham), and Hank Pym.[3] During the game, the heroes come into conflict with several supervillains; among them are the Abomination and Taskmaster.[4]

Plot[edit]

The story begins at A-Day, where the Avengers are unveiling a hi-tech Headquarters in San Francisco — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in the massive devastation of the city and supposedly kills Captain America. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all superheroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth's Mightiest Heroes.[5]
