Square Enix lastly gave the world a take a look at its upcoming Avengers sport (titled Marvel’s Avengers) at E3 2019, and doubtless did not get the complete response from the web it hoped. The sport does not characteristic the likenesses of the Marvel Cinematic Universe actors who’ve embodied the characters for the final decade, and that resulted within the character designs getting dragged on social media.
The reveal was the very last thing proven throughout Square’s press conference at E3 2019 and eventually confirmed one thing of the sport that is being labored on by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos. Despite an prolonged take a look at Avengers, issues are nonetheless fairly cryptic: although it appears to be a third-person motion sport, it isn’t particularly clear the way it performs. We do know that it is an unique Avengers story (the identical method Insomniac’s latest sport, Marvel’s Spider-Man, was divorced from present storylines). And evidently Captain America buys it early within the sport, with the story choosing up 5 years later after they disband in response to taking the blame for destroying an enormous a part of San Francisco.
There was loads of information included within the presentation, together with an upcoming Avengers beta coming to PS4 first and its release date. While the action is cinematic in the game’s trailer and Square Enix’s announcement included particulars like cooperative gameplay, free post-release DLC, and an all-star voice cast that features Troy Baker, Laura Bailey, Nolan North, Travis Willingham, and Jeff Schine, it was the character designs that captured imaginations.
It’s not simply that the MCU actors’ likenesses weren’t used–although that was a part of the response. Captain America’s riot officer physique armor and Thor’s bizarre headlight shirt have been among the many points many appeared to take with the designs. There have been additionally loads of folks questioning the place Hawkeye is. You can try a number of the meanest (or funniest) reactions under.
We’ve bought a lot extra E3 2019 protection all through the present, together with rundowns of all of the news out of the Square Enix press conference, and all the opposite press conferences, too–be certain to examine again all through the week for information, previews, and impressions from gaming’s largest present.
