Marvel`s Avengers E3 2019 Demo Footage Leaks Online; 10 Minutes of Behind Closed Doors Gameplay
Gameplay from Marvel’s Avengers E3 2019 Demo has leaked online showing of 10 minutes of behind closed doors gameplay.
The leaked footage was shown to the press and appears to be taken from the game’s alpha version. Truth be told, the quality is quite low as it seems to have been recorded using a camera/phone. That footage made its way to YouTube and Reddit, but the YouTube video has already been taken down by Square Enix. As the video can’t be embedded, those interested will need to watch the video through Reddit.
Marvel’s Avengers is being developed by Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Montréal and Dutch developer Nixxes. Square Enix showed off the game’s official trailer during its 2019 E3 press conference earlier this week.
Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers 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 massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
“Crystal Dynamics is one of the industry’s most talented and respected game development studios, and we couldn’t be more excited about their ambitious vision for Marvel’s Avengers,” said Jay Ong, EVP, Head of Games at Marvel Entertainment. “It will thrill our fans and serve as a key part of Marvel’s storytelling, delivering an authentic and innovative take on our heroes as never been seen before. This game is what’s next for the Avengers.”
“As super fans, working with Marvel and these characters is a dream come true and we are excited to finally reveal Marvel’s Avengers to the world,” said Scot Amos, Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “This is our original take on these iconic Super Heroes. Leveraging our companies’ combined experience in epic action-adventure storytelling, we’re building a universe that fans will immerse themselves in for years to come.”
Marvel's Avengers will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC on May 15, 2020.
