Square Enix have finally revealed the prologue gameplay of their upcoming action-adventure Marvel's Avengers. The gameplay footage is nearly 19 minutes long and it showcases several locations and battle sequences with each character.
Ever since Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics revealed their new action-adventure Marvel's Avengers earlier this year, many superhero fans were eagerly awaiting the first worldwide gameplay reveal.
Some gameplay footage was available on this year's E3 expo but only behind closed doors to a limited number of journalists and YouTubers. Shortly after E3, the gameplay was leaked online showing a couple of combat sequences featuring Thor and Hulk.
Today, Square Enix decided to reveal the full gameplay footage, which brings us the first look at some of the locations and combat in an 18-minute video. It's the same gameplay that was shown at E3 2019 and it shows Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Iron Man causing havoc with their special superhero powers.
As already mentioned, the gameplay video runs for nearly 19 minutes but a lot of the footage is actually cinematics and quick time event sequences. Also, it's obvious that the levels shown in the video serve as some sort of tutorial for each character.
However, based on what we can see, characters will be very different and each of them will have different combat style with unique abilities, combos, strengths and weaknesses.
A huge emphasis has been put on melee combat but there are also some ranged attacks, it all depends on the character. For example, Iron Man can fly and attack from a distance while Hulk's attacks focus on devastating melee damage when he's not throwing objects around.
This gameplay is, of course, just a small part of Square Enix's big campaign for the game which will include a lot more gameplay, multiplayer and story details. Hopefully, we won't have to wait too long before the publisher decide to share more about Marvel's Avengers.
Marvel's Avengers is officially hitting the shelves on 15 May 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
