Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix revealed today that Marvel's Avengers will support four-player co-op gameplay (though you can also play solo if you like), which is precisely what you'd expect from a video game centered around a team of heroes.

Square Enix closed out Monday's E3 conferences, taking the traditionally Sony slot after the company announced it was skipping E3. The story follows Earth's mightiest heroes in an all-new story where the Avengers have been disassembled. and need to reassemble to, you guessed it, save the world from a big bad.

We also know now that this is an original story that exists outside the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so the likes of Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans don't reprise their roles from the movies.

The looks appropriately Avengers-y, with Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, and Captain America all proudly featured. Watch the gameplay trailer below.

Macquarie's role would be around "the development and electrification of the skyports that will support" Uber's air taxis. Last year, Uber revealed the worldwide cities it was considering for launching the aviation project.

The new game is being developed by Tomb Raider team Crystal Dynamics, in conjunction with Eidos Montreal.

The standard edition of Marvel's Avengers comes with the base game and beta access. Along with the game's first look, we learned tons about this upcoming action-adventure, including its release date of May 15th, 2020. However, when the rescue goes awry, the superhero group is blamed for the destruction and forcibly disbanded by the US government. Troy Baker plays Bruce Banner, Jeff Shine is Captain America, Travis Willingham gets to play Thor, Laura Bailey is Black Widow and Nolan North is Iron Man. The game will continue to grow and evolve over the course of multiple years, adding new areas of the game, story content, and additional superheroes to the roster. Marvel's Avengers will launch on PC and Google Stadia.

Personally, a few of us here at We Got This Covered are holding out for Clint to make an appearance, especially since other heroes, such as Ant-Man, have already been teased. There's no random loot boxes or pay-to-win scenarios.

The new Avengers feels like the next stage in a new era for Marvel console games.
