Plot

As you might be able to tell, this game’s plot largely centres around a similar storyline to that of the last 2 Avengers films, meaning Thanos and the Black Order are out to get all 6 infinity stones. Things kick off with the stones being spread across the galaxy, before turning into a battle to get to them before Thanos and his pals.

Locations

We can expect to travel all around the Marvel universe in this game, confirmed locations already include Avengers Tower, the X Mansion, the Raft, as well as heading into space.

Gameplay

The gameplay is similar to that of previous games in the series, with some tweaks of course. Parties will revolve around yourself and 3 AI companions, whom you’re able to switch between as well as having friends jump in seamlessly and control. Expect some minor puzzle sections when travelling through levels, though what we’ve seen so far mostly points to a combat based game. One of the new features is the heroic camera, which essentially brings the camera closer to the character you’re controlling.
