E3 saw the unveiling of Marvel’s Avengers, a much anticipated title bringing together the MCU OG Avengers (minus Hawkeye, for some reason) made by Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal. The reveal was slightly underwhelming, with some blocky character models and only a few brief snippets of gameplay footage.
It’s not all doom and gloom though. It’s been explicitly stated that all future DLC characters and environments will be free. The game is following a live service model, so whether you’ll need to buy mission packs to use these characters is another question entirely.
With several hubworlds confirmed instead of just a central hub of say, New York City, the possibilities are endless. Several other heroes may crop up as the game goes on, but here we’re looking at the stranger entries; ironically, this means no Doctor Strange, who’ll likely appear in the base game.
These characters may not be in the game at launch, but with a lot of post game supports are excellent candidates for DLC.
As a side note, the Guardians Of The Galaxy have been left out here and the X-Men’s involvement limited, as they could (hopefully) get their own cosmic and mutant Marvel Gameverse titles one day respectively.
