The highly anticipated Marvel’s Avengers video game that we talked about some weeks ago is finally available. Over six million players have spent more than 28 million hours playing the Beta in the month of August and it is now available with a couple of pleasant surprises. Here’s the game is about:
“Marvel’s Avengers offers players a truly rich experience and combines the single player focused Reassemble story campaign with the ongoing Avengers Initiative’s War Zone missions, which take the Avengers around the world and beyond. Each mission in the Reassemble campaign is designed to showcase one or more hero’s unique abilities, while the Avengers Initiative missions can be played solo with your own custom AI team or with a group of up to four players* as any Hero in the player’s roster.”
The story puts Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel as the player’s point-of-view. The game narrative is designed to expand over time, with new stories featuring new heroes, villains, mission types, regions, items, and more at no additional cost to gamers who bought the game. Well, that’s a good news.
Considering how so many publishers are out to squeeze every dollar from gamers’ wallet, this is a welcome move.
There is more good news. Marvel’s Avengers will also be available on next-generation consoles, i.e. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, when the consoles are launched later this year. Players who own the current-gen version of the game will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version at no additional cost. Hey, I will drink to that.
Finally, companies are out to please gamers, rather than coaxing more money out of them. As a gamer, I appreciate that. It is the good old days of gaming, but better. Marvel’s Avengers is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB. Marvel’s Avengers is on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia as well speak. Pricing is as follows:
