Marvel's Avengers E3 2019 Reveal

Square Enix have revealed first official trailer of upcoming Marvel's Avengers game at E3 2019 event.

For long, publisher Square Enix has been silent on "The Avengers Project" that was officially announced back at E3 2017 event. In December 2018, the game's Creative Director Shaun Escayg assured that development will start soon.

Only a week ago, an official Twitter account starts referring it as Marvel's Avengers and revealed schedule for a worldwide reveal at E3 2019. Today, fans are finally getting a glance at this long-awaited superhero action-adventure game.

An exclusive first-look trailer has been released earlier to present a more detailed look into upcoming Avengers game.

It all begins at A-Day, when globally known superhero team of Avengers showed up in San Francisco to unveil their new hi-tech Headquarters. A sudden explosion nearby has Captain America send Iron Man and Thor to investigate.

Black Widow and Hulk joined soon into that mess what seemed like an act of terrorism by a private military force. A staged catastrophe causes huge devastation and these heroes were blamed, which led to disbandment of The Avengers.

Fast forward to five years later, all superheroes are now outlawed by society and long gone. Entire world suffers from growing threats and the only way to save it will take for Earth's Mightiest Heroes to reassemble once again.

Over time, fans will receive regular updates for free to extend in-game content and there will be no micro-transaction. More Marvel heroes will be added to increase an ever-growing roster and options for customization will be available.

After signing up a multi-year and multi-game partnership deal with Marvel Games, developer studios Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal were roped in by Square Enix to develop the game for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Lately, Google Stadia has been added to its list of platforms and a definitive release date of May 15, 2020 is also confirmed. As pre-order bonus, a pre-release Beta Access of the game will be offered to players on PS4 before anyone else.

Although it was mentioned in E3 2019 trailer that footage shown are captured from in-game engine, it was quite hard to tell where cinematic cut-scenes ended or where we were watching gameplay moments except from its opening scene.

Marvel's Avengers will adapt an original story just like Insomniac Games most recently did with their immensely successful project, Marvel's Spider-Man. Despite many believe it to be an MMO or RPG but apparently we are getting an action-adventure title.

Marvel's Avengers Will Be Revealed at E3 2019

Square Enix would finally reveal their ambitious superhero adventure Marvel's Avengers at E3 2019 press conference.

Teaming up with Marvel Games for a multi-game partnership, publisher Square Enix officially announced superhero action-adventure game that was simply titled "The Avengers Project" at E3 2017 event and had no development updates for long.

Finally, the long-awaited game has received a schedule from Marvel Entertainment for a worldwide reveal event at E3 2019 press briefing now that we are only few weeks away and is currently referred to as Marvel's Avengers.

Originally announced in January 2017, developer studios Crystal Dynamics and EIDOS Montreal joined on board for this project. We don't even have a release window set for its possible launch but hopefully, we will get something very soon.

Back then, a brief cinematic has shown Captain America's shield, Iron Man's repulsor arm and Thor's hammer Mjolnir fallen on the ground that suggests that original Avengers have probably disassembled and they need to "reassemble".

It is highly likely for a new group of heroes to gather to pick up mantles of their icons in a brand-new original story where a new generation of heroes like Amadeus Cho, Jane Foster and Sam Wilson can now form New Avengers.

We can pretty much except a similar lineup on Marvel Cinematic Universe as well since Avengers have already gone through major events such as "Infinity War" and "Endgame" lately, leading some key-characters to pass their mantle to new heroes.

RELATED: The Avengers Project Will Begin Development Soon

Almost a year after The Avengers Project was announced, Creative Director Shaun Escayg updated everyone on social media saying how hard they are working on this ambitious game and will soon reveal more when it is right time.

Given how Square Enix is planning to introduce a universe where gamers can play for years to come, Marvel's Avengers may turn out to be an MMO or RPG experience, which would not be very surprising and we will find that out on June 10, 6 PM PT.

Shadow of The Tomb Raider Slammed on Steam

Shadow of The Tomb Raider gets massive load of negative reviews on Steam because of a recent sale.

With the recent release of action-adventure game Shadow of The Tomb Raider, developer Eidos and publisher Square Enix has brought back series protagonist Lara Croft once again and successfully concluded the reboot origin trilogy.

Initially, the game is launched on 14 September for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a worldwide positive reception. However, things started going south lately when Square Enix decided to offer a sale for the game on Steam, which made many players who pre-ordered the game angry.

The retail price for the standard edition of the game received a 34% off on Valve's digital distribution platform Steam, shortly after a month of its release in a week-long sale and another 47% discount on the Croft Steelbook Edition.

Within days after the sale started, the game has its reputation moved from "Mostly Positive" to "Mixed" because of a surge of negative reviews. Most of them are complaining about being ripped off by pre-ordering as it came to sale too soon anyway.

If you go through the recent reviews on the Steam page for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, all you will see is people being pissed off at Square Enix for this marketing tactics and 66% of the consumers left a negative remark for their dick move.

The only good side of this sale is that if anyone still hasn't picked up the game, now is the time. Since the Croft Steelbook Edition is also going on for a 47% price off, this is a killer deal right now to grab the base game and all the upcoming DLC when they arrive.

RELATED: Shadow of the Tomb Raider First Artwork Revealed

What this Steam sale backlash leaving behind is a knock-on effect for future when players will reconsider the point of pre-ordering games if they are going on sale so early and if people will ever trust the company with any of their upcoming titles.

However, among the mass pile of review bombing over sale, there were some mentions of issues regarding audio and several glitches. Some of them also complained about the story arc being short and even the ones recommended it has the same grumble.

Fans were very excited for Shadow of the Tomb Raider from the moment it was revealed and many even expected the game to be one of the biggest titles of 2018 because of an impressive narrative build and incredibly detailed graphics but sadly, that's not the case anymore.

Though it picked up things pretty well with favorable response but didn't turn out as expected in the end. Although, the series is currently on rest as the Survivor timeline has come to an end, only time will tell how much bigger price the company will have to pay for this betray of trust.
