Here's what we do know: Marvel's Avengers is a third-person, action-adventure game that can be played with up to four players online or single-player offline. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth's Mightiest Heroes. You'll have Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Iron Man in the roster, but they're all in the sort of uncanny valley of not looking like their MCU counterparts. However, for those anxious that Hawkeye won't have at least some kind of appearance in Marvel's Avengers, Marvel Games VP and Creative Director Bill Rosemann has suggested otherwise.
The Avengers releases in May 2020 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia.
As for the story, Marvel's Avengers takes place in a completely new timeline, separate from any movies or comics. The game will open in San Francisco on "A-Day", as the team and city celebrate the opening of the Avengers' West Coast headquarters.More news: Jon Stewart lashes out at Congress over September 11 victims fund

Given the huge success of Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4, there's an unsurprisingly high level of excitement about Marvel's Avengers.
Every new superhero and every new region will be delivered at no additional cost.
"It's about losing what matters to you most and fighting to get it back", Rosemann said of the game.
Marvel's Avenger's will also feature a constantly growing stream of new content, including new characters, missions, and more.
