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

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.

Marvel’s Avengers: Stan Lee helped establish the game’s narrative

The creator of The Avengers and many other characters of the Marvel factory was involved in the development of the video game.


No matter what movie it was, in all Marvel film productions, Stan Lee participated with his relevant cameo. The late artist, father of some of the best-known superheroes in history, was also involved in Marvel’s Avengers , the new video game developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos Montreal.

It has been confirmed by Scot Amos , head of Crystal Dynamics, in an interview with TechRadar. According to his account, the team visited Lee to ask him about the narrative process of Marvel stories. It has not been clear to what extent he participated, but the words suggest that his lessons helped shape the characters.

Amos states that “Stan was a complicated guy. He simply loved his characters, ”he says. “Actually, we asked him what he wanted to do.” They were also interested in the way he characterized his characters. “The good thing about Stan was that he conceived these characters because he wanted to love and enjoy them. I had the perception that any comic could be someone’s first , and that stayed with me. ”

Post-launch content

The new work by Crsystal Dynamics is a videogame that will incorporate content throughout the months. A free update model is applied that does not contemplate that players pay for new characters and stories. In fact, unless there is a change of position, all game content will be free. The study has confirmed that it will not offer more details about what is to come until after Christmas.

The Avengers have fallen out of favor. During Avengers Day, the enemy attacks and the citizens turn their backs on the heroes. It is then when they decide to hang the cape and leave the path they took long ago. However, circumstances will force them to return and fight for humanity.

Marvel’s Avengers: clarified the role of Hank Pym (Ant-Man) in the game


The title of Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics continues to be detailed through small strokes. There will be news of new characters in 2020.

Marvel’s Avengers will feature at least six playable launch characters, but the Crystal Dynamics title universe has other familiar faces on the side of villains and allies, such as Hank Pym , Ant-Man’s original form in the comics of decades ago Now we know something more about this veteran comic character.

According to Shawn Escayg in statements to Den of Geek, Hank Pym’s role in the story will be that of a character willing to collaborate in the fight for good and that, for different reasons that will be told in the individual story, is seen involved in the same conflict as The Avengers ( Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Thor and Ms. Marvel ).

” [Hank Pym] was seduced by AIM’s philosophy, ” he says in relation to the criminal organization that is destroying all kinds of freedoms in this universe. “But after having corrupted himself, he has now moved away from that perspective to fight on the side of the good, ” he continues. Therefore, we should not face this original form of Ant-Man as a villain. In fact, by the words of Escayg, Pym will have information from AIM for having worked with them in the past, although he does not comment on how the Avengers can benefit from such a circumstance.

Regarding the characters that are coming post- launch , we remember that they will not be shown until 2020 , after this Christmas. Therefore, except surprise, we will not see any news related to this aspect of the game contents in The Game Awards this December.

Marvel’s Avengers will be adapted for new and veteran players

Crystal Dynamics has taken into account the different player profiles when building its new production.

The heroes are not for a few, they are for everyone, whatever your condition. That also moves to Marvel’s Avengers, the new title produced by Square Enix and developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos Montreal. In the development of the Avengers game, accessibility as well as the challenge have been in the lead. This was stated by Scot Amos, head of Crystal Dynamics, in statements to IGN Italy.

According to the creative, the intention is to achieve a balance. The game is going to be accessible enough so that Marvel fans who are not keen on video games can enjoy the game. However, those looking for a challenge will also have the possibility to exploit the Avengers’ abilities to the fullest, since the mechanics have been built so that the player “studies what is the best way to build the character or play with several heroes” .

Stan Lee participated in the game

When developing the title, the Crystal Dynamics team met with Stan Lee himself, who passed away recently. The creators of many of Marvel’s most successful characters helped them establish the starting point of the story, as we published on MeriStation, although it is unknown to what extent he collaborated in the decisions.

Marvel’s Avengers is in development for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia. If there are no last minute delays, the production will be ready by May 15, a few days before The Last of Us Part 2 makes its market debut.

Crystal Dynamics has conceived the game as a product that will expand over the years. In a press release, Bandai Namco – distributor of the game in Spain – said the title will be updated in the future with free content for all players. That includes new heroes, regions and stories within the Avengers universe, which we remember, is not the same as movie tapes.
