E3 2019: Crystal Dynamics’ Avengers looks like the superhero game of your dreams

Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics have been hard at work on an Avengers game with Marvel for several years now. Their work on the title was so involved that it meant getting Eidos Montreal to help them complete 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Avengers (we thought it would have a subtitle but it doesn’t) was unveiled during the Square Enix press briefing at E3 2019, and gives the world its first glimpse at the game in motion. See for yourself:

The game features Crystal Dynamics’ own take on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes so if Cap doesn’t look quite the way you expected, that’s probably why. It also boasts a who’s who of voice acting talent with Troy Baker (The Last of Us) as Bruce Banner, Jeff Schine (Mafia III) as Captain America, Travis Willingham (Critical Role) as Thor, Laura Bailey (literally everything you love) as Black Widow and Nolan North (Uncharted) as Iron Man.

Avengers launches May 15, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC and Google Stadia.
