Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have been hard at work developing their new project, Marvel’s Avengers, since their debut trailer at E3 2019, and at New York Comic-Con, we got even more details about the title that will release on May 15, 2020.
Kamala Khan Is The Star
Despite the game’s title, the real star of the Marvel’s Avengers is actually Ms. Marvel herself. As Crystal Dynamics Creative Director and Writer Shaun Escayg puts it, as “an optimistic fangirl of the Avengers, Kamala Khan is the perfect character for the story we’re telling in Marvel’s Avengers.”
Telling our story of Kamala’s coming-of-age brings a fresh, hopeful perspective to the gameplay experience and her unique abilities as Ms. Marvel makes her a character every person can relate to and will want to play.
Ms. Marvel’s co-creator G. Wilow Wilson also had her say, emphasizing that “Kamala is a perfect fit for a game like this, since she sees the Marvel world the same way we do as fans and players. Kamala allows us to imagine what we ourselves would do if we suddenly discovered we had superpowers and got to stand alongside our heroes in their time of greatest need.”
The Earth’s Mightiest Edition
There will also be a special edition of Marvel’s Avengers coming, dubbed the Earth’s Mightiest Collection, which will contain several collectables which represent the five major Avengers. Each item was “inspired by actual in-game events and items.”
It will include a statue of Captain America, Black Widow insignia, Hulk bobblehead, Thor’s hammer Mjolnir keychain, and Iron Man blueprints, representing the five main playable characters. It also includes an Avengers emblem, and a photo of the five assembled Avengers with a young Kamala Khan.
No price has yet to be set on the Earth’s Mightiest Edition, but be sure to get your pre-orders in early before the release of Marvel’s Avengers on May 15, 2020.
