A new Avengers video game is coming out and it’s about time.

Honestly, how is it 2019 and we’ve only ever had a handful of decent Marvel games?

Of course, the LEGO Marvel games are great fun and the PS4 Spider-Man game from last year is impeccable, but we need more. It’s not fair that DC get all of those Injustice games and Arkham Knights, while Marvel just have a bunch of mobile games.

To set our little minds at ease, Japanese video game giant Square Enix have released a trailer for their Avengers video game, rather ingeniously called Marvel’s Avengers: A-Day.

A lot of heads were put together for that one.

The news that this would be coming out come in late May, and at the E3 2019, the trailer was finally released.

Josh thinks it looks sh*t, but I’m very excited.

I was dubious at first. Why couldn’t they just get Insomniac in to make it like they made the Spider-Man game? But no, this actually looks really good.

The graphics are great, the story looks pretty interesting, not that I saw a lot of it, but the gameplay seems engaging, the only issue is that it’s dangerously jarring to see other faces portray the Avengers.

Looks like Captain America dies. He’ll be back.

The game is out on May 15, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and Windows PC, which is a shame because I was hoping it was exclusive to PlayStation. I don’t even know why, I just don’t like Xbox-users having nice things. It sounds mean and it is, and I can’t even explain it.

The Crystal Dynamics (the guys developing the game that will be published by Square Enix) website states:

The Avengers project is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise.

Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come.

I’ll be buying it.

In the meantime, Insomniac, please release more DLC for Marvel’s Spider-Man.
