Marvel’s Avengers: Ms. Marvel, confirmed as sixth playable character


An intervention of Crystal Dynamics during the New York Comic Con has served to learn important news about Marvel’s Avengers , and that is that Kamala Khan, Ms. Marvel , will join Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow and Thor to be the sixth playable title character. Not only that, but also will be basically the main character of the game, starring in passing the new trailer.

Key Game Character

Khan already makes an appearance in the first trailers of Marvel’s Avengers, in which they began to talk about the disaster of Day A , and in which he also mentions a girl who is a big fan of The Avengers. This girl is nothing but Kamala, a girl who through Terrigénesis unlocks her Inhuman powers, being able to stretch her arms and legs, as well as change her shape. For much of the video game he will hide his powers from the rest of the Avengers.

Crystal Dynamics: “We don’t want you to feel bored in Marvel’s Avengers”

Marvel’s Avengers is being one of the great attractions of Madrid Games Week 2019 , a fair that is on its last opening day today Sunday. On the other side of the pond, however, they are also celebrating another event of special attention for fans of the entertainment world. The Comic Con of New York has not only left us the release date of Marvel’s Iron Man VR, but also various news around the title with which we opened this news.

GameSpot has had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Scot Amos, studio head of Crystal Dynamics; A talk that has led to reaffirm the company’s commitment in its first service game. “We don’t want people to feel bored or run out of things,” he explains. According to Scot, they have learned from other rivals within the genre about “what works and doesn’t work” and the speed at which “the most enthusiastic can consume all the content.”

“How can we keep them hooked in an intelligent way that rewards them for their time in the game?” Scot confesses. Recognize that currently that question “is the most important” within the team. “If you want to play more, we want to give you more content to complete,” he concludes.

We have seen it in other games like Destiny , where Bungie did not gauge its useful life; a title of these characteristics lives to bring freshness to that repetition, and it was not until the arrival of The King of the Possessed , the first expansion of the original, when the first stone was laid to build the magnificent structure on which its sequel is sustained .


Like Bungie, Scot insists on the relevance of listening to the community . “We have a large community that we can access to listen to the players and react accordingly. Our community management team is great. ”

Ms. Marvel, sixth playable character

Kamala Khan broke all the forecasts by becoming the sixth playable character in Marvel’s Avengers . As if that were not enough, she is also the main protagonist of the adventure, whose powers obtained after the Terrigénesis will hide the Avengers during certain sections.

Being a complete rookie in using your inhuman skills, it playably feels much slower to use than the rest of the cast . The vice president of content and character development of Marvel and co-creator of Kamala, Sana Amanat, thanked during the presentation “the way” in which Crystal Dynamics “has captured their movements and personality.”

The Marvel’s Avengers campaign will last from 10 to 12 hours; all up to 30 hours

The Crystal Dynamics title will be released in May with multiplayer mode and an individual campaign that is now detailed.

One of the main attractions of Marvel’s Avengers will be, according to Crystal Dynamics , its campaign. This single player adventure , which will complement the expansive multiplayer mode they are designing for the long term, will last between 10 and 12 hours , says one of the senior directors of the studio, Rich Briggs.

“I think it will depend exactly on how much you deepen and how far you want to go,” he says in relation to the question about the duration of that individual campaign that we could already test in our visit to Gamescom 2019 held this past August. “If you think of previous Crystal games, you know that if you want to get to the point in the main story, it will be around those parameters; about 10 or 12 hours ”he adds.

But it all depends on our degree of involvement. “If you want to see everything, all side missions and everything else, you could generally wait about 30 hours at the Tomb Raider games; so although we are not putting those numbers exactly here, you can expect something equivalent to what we have done in the past in this regard. And, of course, you also have the extended narrative with the post launch content. ”


Ms. Marvel, confirmed as sixth playable character

Nolan North (Iron Man), Troy Baker (Bruce Banner), Laura Bailey (Black Widow), Jeff Schine (Captain America) and Travis Willingham (Thor) are the voice actors of the protagonist Avengers, although it remains to be seen who will play the Last character confirmed for the game, the sixth, which is none other than Ms. Marvel .

One of the concerns of the study is how to prevent players from becoming bored , “We don’t want people to feel bored or run out of things,” says Scot Amos, leader of Crystal Dynamics, who says they have learned from other rivals within the genre about “what works and doesn’t work” and the speed at which “the most enthusiastic can consume all the content”.

Marvel’s Avengers: this is how each of the Avengers fights

After testing the game at Madrid Games Week 2019, we explain the basic fundamentals of each of the superheroes.

The new Avengers adventure takes shape. Marvel’s Avengers , an action game developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos Montreal, puts us in the shoes of a group of superheroes, each with its corresponding fighting style. The study is aware of the challenge and knows that they “play the reputation on it” , but they work piece by piece with the aim of designing a videogame to match. One of the challenges has been precisely to differentiate the characters. In Madrid Games Week 2019 we have had the opportunity to get to the controls and try a premature demo that lets us glimpse the different fighting styles of The Avengers.

For Scot Amos, head of the study, “the challenge was to be able to balance those differences so that everyone plays their part in the title without anyone being much more powerful.” The real challenge is to get players to sit in the shoes of Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow and company. Will they get it?

Thor and Iron Man, the god and the scientist

The first of the characters we handle, Thor, uses his most characteristic weapon, the hammer. It has two main attacks, a quick hit and a strong but slower one. You can also spread hammers in the air and hit hard when it falls to the ground. Throwing the hammer and recovering it takes several enemies ahead and is very effective. As if that were not enough, his final attack does not leave a puppet with a head.

From the ground to the sky. A character like Iron Man, who fights mostly from the air, must master flight technique well . In Marvel’s Avengers, this facet feels a bit awkward at first, especially after trying out the latest BioWare game, Anthem. In a first phase, the superhero flies forward and a target appears that we can move to shoot at all the enemies that appear on the horizon. Then the combat develops closer to the ground. We have the possibility to levitate and crush enemies with our arsenal . Suddenly, automatic turrets fire relentlessly … but not for long. We say goodbye to them and a new hero awaits us.

Hulk, Captain America and Black Widow: three different profiles

Hulk represents a change from the previous two characters. His corpulence makes him a heavier character , and that is reflected in the gameplay. We take an enemy and throw him against the enemy; to another, instead, we take it among the masses and use it to annihilate other criminals. Given its volume, Hulk can destroy heavy vehicles. However, it runs faster than it might seem at first glance. Their jumps usually end in a blow to the ground whose shock wave reaches the rivals.


A good attack needs a careful defense. Captain America carries a shield that serves to defend against the shots he receives. But the same object of protection acquires offensive capacity. He combines blows with the shield and his arm, has the ability to throw it against the enemy in a manner very similar to Thor’s with his hammer, only if he carries it for longer, he will have the possibility of breaking the shields that the antagonists carry .

Playing with Black Widow feels different, because he is a character as graceful and fast as deadly . His technique is infiltration, but that does not mean that he does not face enemies face to face. At the end of the demo, the heroine fights an enemy that flies. Armed with two guns, very much like Lara Croft, he must shoot while dodging the blows of his rival. At some point, the enemy will lose the jet pack that drives it, so the combat will be settled on land. Here, Black Widow also uses her fists and takes advantage of her speed.

The Madrid Games Week 2019 demo is designed so that the player can experiment with all the characters. The problem is that since it is an introductory test, we handle each of them without going deeper , so the feeling that it is a tutorial does not leave us at any time. There is still time for Crystal Dynamics to polish the playable experience, so we will have to wait to see if they can design the product they want.

Marvel’s Avengers: how Ms. Marvel’s character was designed

Crystal Dynamics wanted to carry out a faithful work towards the character, a recent icon of the comiquera factory now present in the game.


Ms. Marvel is one of the latest great addition to Marvel’s Avengers . The announcement, which caught fans by surprise, added its sixth playable superhero for the title of Crystal Dynamics, who have now been responsible for explaining in detail what they have been based on to design it.

According to the study, “We wanted to do justice with Ms. Marvel’s original designs and worked hard with Marvel Games and co-creator Sana Amanat – one of Kamala Khan’s original editors , her first name – who explained the reflections that there was behind the different appearances that Kamala has and the focus of the key elements of his outfits. ”

To that they add that “We also wanted Kamala to have an origin from a powerful arc, as a representation of the player’s trip; the perspective of the player is aligned with that of Kamala, ”added Tore Blystad, creative director of Crystal Dynamics.

On the origin of the costume that we will see in the Marvel’s Avengers video game this spring, “We took the main inspiration of that iconic Ms. Marvel costume, especially Ms. Marvel’s # 2. ” Not surprisingly, given its link with this cast of Avengers, formed by Black Widow, Captain America, Thor, Hulk and Iron Man, we will also see costumes based on the technology that Tony Stark can supply, although they have not detailed how. They detail, of course, that the bracelet and other relics come from the cultural heritage of his family and act as talismans for her.

Let’s meet Kamala Khan: a young Marvel icon

Kamala Khan is one of the most recent superheroines of the Marvel universe. His first appearance in a staple dates back to Captain Marvel # 14 in August 2013, when Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker gave the green light to the edition of the factory’s first Muslim character. Such was his acceptance that a few months later, in February 2014, he began drawing a series of this human, whose specialty is polymorphism.

His affiliation to the Avengers is canon; in fact, his participation in the second Civil War is fundamental along with that of other new young, fresh Avengers and with arguments addressed to an audience less than thirty years old. The successor to Carol Danvers, who is considered a follower, will be playable in Marvel’s Avengers.

Confirmed: Captain Marvel exists in the Marvel’s Avengers universe

The information does not confirm the appearance, playable or not, of the character in the Crystal Dynamics video game, although its canonical existence.

Captain Marvel is part of the Marvel’s Avengers universe , Crystal Dynamics has confirmed. The Square Enix video game, which recently featured Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) as part of the cast of playable characters , says that the well-known superheroine is canonical in the plot’s background, although they neither confirm her visual appearance nor its hypothetical playable addition.

Hannah McLeod, narrative designer in the studio, has confirmed to ComicBook that “We will explain it this way: Kamala cannot be a fan of someone who does not exist.” That is to say, Kamala Khan, a confessed fan of Captain Marvel, responds to that affection for the original reasons of the original comic by Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker published in the Captain Marvel staple # 14 of 2013.

No changes from the comic: Carol Danvers fan

The young Khan, aspiring to superheroine but with an inordinate power in potential, will assume a role more of apprentice than of expert in the adventure. “She knows everything about the Avengers and yes, Captain Marvel is her favorite,” he says. “There is something in common between her and the players: love these heroes.”


Although Crystal Dynamics confirmed in Gamescom 2019 that Marvel’s Avengers will have more playable and enemy characters in the future (both original and from the comic in this second case), they do not confirm or rule out a possible appearance of Carol Danvers , Captain Marvel, as DLC or in a season pass. It does seem likely that there are mentions and references to his person by mere plot cohesion when presenting Kamala Khan.

In this article, we explain how each of the playable characters confirmed for now is controlled and fought: Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk and Ms. Marvel .

Marvel’s Avengers will go on sale on May 15, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia . Your individual campaign mode will last between 10 and 12 hours , although if we want to complete all the secondary missions you can leave at 30 hours.

Marvel’s Avengers: Crystal Dynamics chose Kamala Khan because he is a credible character

This is a hero who is not as veteran as other members of The Avengers, so they can experiment with her story.

The Avengers fell out of favor after Avengers Day. The accident caused numerous casualties and the superheroes decided to give up their efforts and separate their paths. However, new dangers lurk. Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Black Widow will face new challenges and will be assisted by Kamala Khan, one of the last confirmed characters in Marvel’s Avengers . But why did they choose it?

Speaking to IGN, producer Rose Hunt has revealed that Marvel proposed this character to them and that they were delighted to incorporate it, because Khan is not only a staunch fan of the Avengers, but also a very credible character . “When Marvel proposed this possibility we were excited,” recalls the producer. “He’s a fan like us,” like “everyone,” so they thought it would work like a very real character.


Another reason is that being a more recent character, they will have more freedom to explore their history and turn it into Ms. Marvel. “Another advantage is that it doesn’t have an 80-year history, like Captain America and other Avengers.” This will allow them to “tell an original story, because their story has just begun.”

Captain Marvel exists in the Marvel’s Avengers universe

Kamala Khan’s character is a fan of Captain Marvel, so some players have wondered if this character really exists in the universe created by Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix. According to Hannah McLeod, the studio’s narrative designer, “Kamala can’t be a fan of someone who doesn’t exist,” so yes, Captain Marvel is a reality. Will we see her in the game? There is nothing confirmed.

Marvel’s Avengers is in development for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The game will also appear on Google Stadia , but we will still have to wait a few months for the title to go on sale. The release date? The next May 15, 2020.

Marvel’s Avengers: the equipment will be unique for each Avenger

Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix continue working on the title, which will arrive for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia next May, 2020.

Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that Marvel’s Avengers equipment will be unique to each character. Thus, Hulk , Black Widow , Thor , Captain America , Iron Man and Ms. Marvel will have unique comparable objects to develop their customization and gameplay different from the rest.

Scot Asmos , development leader in Crystal Dynamics, together with Rose Hunt, producer of the work, have confirmed the information in a meeting with IGN. “If you play a mission like Black Widow, you will find opportunities to obtain equipment for any of the characters,” says Hunt, so that if we play with Captain America we can find objects not only from him, but from the rest.


To that adds Asmos, of course, that ” the equipment is unique to each hero .” What they have not confirmed is whether using a specific hero increases the probability of obtaining objects of that character over the rest.

As confirmed, there will be different oddities in comparable objects ; The loot of these materials will have more difficult units to achieve than others, the most complicated ones with less probability of appearance and better characteristics. It should be said that the loot boxes will not be paid with real money, but are part of the gaming experience.

Marvel’s Avengers will have microtransactions , but only aesthetic, cosmetic type. Nothing that affects the gameplay can be purchased with real money.

Ms. Marvel will be a playable character; Captain Marvel exists in this universe

For those who ask, Captain Marvel does exist in the universe of MArvel’s Avengers , although its existence has not been confirmed visually or playable within the video game. This clarification is relevant from the moment the incorporation of Ms. Marvel’s superhero cast, the young Kamala Khan from the original Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker comic published in the Captain Marvel staple # 14 of 2013, was confirmed .

This aspiring superheroine, who has extraordinary powers, will be one of the apprentices of the game. If you want to respect the canon of the comic, Ms. Marvel has to meet Captain Marvel because she is his great inspiration. Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that this is- “She knows everything about the Avengers and yes, Captain Marvel is her favorite. There is something in common between her and the players: love these heroes. ”

Marvel’s Avengers will be available in stores on May 15, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia. Its single-player campaign mode will last between 10 and 12 hours , although the study ensures that, to complete all secondary missions, the experience can be extended to 30 hours.

Marvel’s Avengers delves into its mechanics and narrative in a new trailer

The Crystal Dynamics game, developed in collaboration with Eidos Montreal and under the umbrella of Square Exix, details its keys on video.

There is still room for superheroes, even if they don’t know it themselves. Marvel’s Avengers , the new Crystal Dynamics production , part of the tragedy, of death, of hatred that some profess. The Avengers Day ends in disgrace, so the team decides to separate their paths. However, they will come together again to fight a new threat . Square Enix has just published a new trailer that offers an overview of all aspects of the game.

In a press release, Bandai Namco, distributor of the game in Spain, explained that the hero missions are only for one player and will take place during the campaign. They have been set up to present the special abilities of each of the heroes. On the other hand, the war zone will be available for up to four players, although lone wolves will also be able to access. “Each mission dynamically adjusts to the size of the team and the level of the player,” confirms the press release.


A Look At the Customization

Customizing our superheroes will be a possibility. For this, we will have classic attires , as well as new ones, all inspired by 80 years of Marvel history. Even so, not everything is costumes, we can also customize the characters according to the style of play we choose. Therefore, skills will be activated or deactivated and we will have dynamic combo systems, heroic movements and unlockable abilities. In fact, the equipment of each Avenger will be exclusive to each one.

The video game’s story will not end when the game goes on sale. The press release also specifies that the title will be expanded with new story arcs “over several years.” Of course, they point out, “any region or new superhero will be free if you own the main game.

Marvel’s Avengers is in development for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia .

Marvel’s Avengers will reveal the post-launch characters after Christmas

The Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix plan will be begged until 2020; The last months before launch will have a lot of information.

Crystal Dynamics will not offer more details about the next superheroes that will arrive after the launch of Marvel’s Avengers until Christmas has passed. The first quarter of 2020 is postulated as a key period for Square Enix in the task of communicating to the community what this project is and what it intends to be long term.

Because beyond history, the game will be updated with more Avengers , more villains, more stories, all free. The head designer of the project, Philippe Therien , has talked about the post-launch content and the cooperative in Actu Gaming, a conversation where he has placed people after the Christmas campaign. It will be then when, in his words, we also see new Marvel’s Avengers trailers. “After the end of the year we can talk about the road map and how often we will be adding the characters,” he says.


We know some things about the contents that will arrive via DLC (free). Regarding the characters, they will have a unique and different gameplay for each one, with their own story . Thus, beyond what we are told about Captain America , Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Ms. Marvel and Hulk , the rest of the playable characters will narrate their own expertise.
