Publisher Square Enix and developers Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal have just unveiled the launch trailer of the hyped and anticipated superhero action game Marvel’s Avengers. The video game, which stars “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (sans Captain America)” fighting against the evil MODOK, is set to release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and Stadia on September 4. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions are set to coincide with the launch days of the next-gen consoles this coming holiday.

The trailer, which runs for just barely a minute, is, for lack of a better term short and sweet. It almost plays out more like a movie trailer than one for a video game. The game’s main cast is seen, each showcasing their own unique moves and powers such as Iron Man showing off his Hulkbuster suit, Thor with his devastating Mjolnir attacks, Kamala Khan with her shapeshifting powers, and the Incredible Hulk doing what he does best: smashing.

Marvel’s Avengers puts players in the shoes of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes fighting against a new unchecked power only known as AIM, and the iconic villain from the Marvel Universe known as MODOK. Players can go through the game’s single player campaign and unlock powerful skills, heroes, and restore their powers. Customization is also available with tons of classic and brand-new outfits inspired by “over 80 years of Marvel history.” As for Avengers' other game modes, there are also Hero Missions (single player) and Warzone missions (solo or co-op) that will put players in different situations.

With just a little over a week remaining until the ambitious title’s launch day, it is exciting to see how reception for Marvel’s Avengers will turn out. Reactions towards its free beta gameplay have been mostly divided, with its combat both receiving praise for its fun-factor and criticism for its blandness and redundancy. However, as with all games, final judgment for Marvel’s Avengers should be reserved until we have seen the product in it is entirety, which is set to come on September 4.
