During NYCC 2019, Square Enix revealed a new playable character for their upcoming Avengers game…Ms. Marvel. Come inside to watch the trailer!
Kamala’s presence in the Avengers “A-Day” trailer wasn’t exactly a secret and fans were instantly excited. Today, Square Enix/Crystal Dynamics have announced that Kamala’s Ms. Marvel will not only appear in the game, but she’ll be a playable character in the roster. Better yet, they revealed a new trailer at NYCC that showing off new story and gameplay footage!
A self-avowed Avengers fan, in the game’s original story, Kamala Khan must apply her intellect, optimism, and unique abilities to the task of unravelling a global conspiracy and reassembling her personal heroes in time to stop a new secretive organization, Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM), before they unleash one of the greatest threats Earth has ever faced.
Players first encounter a young Kamala during A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, 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. Kamala is exposed to the mysterious Terrigen Mist, and finds herself developing extraordinary polymorphic powers, which she subsequently hides for years. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, Kamala uncovers a shocking conspiracy and embarks on a quest to reassemble the heroes she believes in and to become the hero she was destined to be.
Players begin the journey as Kamala Khan and learn the origins of her extraordinary powers. As the story expands, Kamala plays an essential role in bringing the disbanded Avengers back together. As each Super Hero is added to the roster, players must master all of their unique abilities, rebuild and customize the Avengers team to face increasingly growing threats only the Avengers together can defeat.
Marvel’s Avengers arrives on PS4, Xbox One X, Stadia, and PC on May 15, 2020.
