If the A-Day Trailer for the Marvel’s Avengers didn’t meet your expectations at all, then maybe the leaked gameplay footage will suit your tastes.

Yes, you heard that right, the gameplay footage of Marvel’s Avengers has been leaked all thanks to a blurry video taken by an attendee of the game’s private presentation at the E3 2019. After the A-Day Trailer garnered a lot of negative comments because of the graphics, the lack of gameplay, and of course, don’t forget the missing Hawkeye, this leaked gameplay footage seems to be the answers to some prayers about the game. Just some, sadly.

(If this ever gets taken down, you can download a copy of the footage here. Thanks, Gematsu!)

Despite of the noticeably low quality of the video, it still gives all of us a sneak peek on a lot of info about the game. Here’s everything we saw in the leaked gameplay footage:

First of all, in the A-Day trailer, we saw multiple explosions on the Golden Gate Bridge. Captain America told Thor and Iron Man to check it out and Hulk followed suit. Armed enemies are scattered everywhere as the three spread out to rescue civilians and stop the villains. This is exactly where the leaked gameplay footage begins.

The first gameplay we’ve been blessed with is Tony Stark’s, better known as Iron Man. He arrived on the bridge and immediately gave out instructions to the civilians to take cover. He then started to fight the villains. Iron Man has both hand-to-hand combat techniques and long-range attacks with his repulsors. He can also fight mid-air, which adds up to tons of action.

Next up is Bruce Banner, the Hulk, smashing things like he always does. He can charge at enemies and avoid obstacles by jumping. Hulk can also pick up cars with ease and throw them at enemies either to defend himself or attack them. In this scene, you’ll be hearing the Avengers in the background rushing him to do a certain task, although I’m not quite sure what that is.

After that, there’s a short scene that shows the whole team except Captain America, who is currently inside the ship. This is the only time we get to see Thor with the bob cut. The god didn’t get to showcase his gameplay moves in the leaked footage.

Then there’s Steve Rogers, better known as Captain America. He is seen inside a ship, presumably the helicarrier that they were supposed to introduce to the public since it had the logo of the Avengers inside. He shows off his gameplay that ultimately revolved around his shield. He uses his shield for both offense and defense, throwing it to the enemies and shielding himself. Cap can also kick and punch his enemies without the shield.

Last but definitely not the least is the powerful gameplay of Natasha Romanov, the Black Widow, as she faces of with the villain called Task Master. This has got to be the greatest part of the gameplay footage, with Black Widow clinging to the Task Master and beating him up mid-air. The epic fight scenes are definitely the creations of the talented Crystal Dynamics.

After their mid-air combat, Black Widow uses her guns to shoot at the Task Master from a distance, but of course, she can also depend on her hand-to-hand combat skills with a mix of punches, kicks, and some sleek dodge moves. Black Widow suddenly had this invisible mode which quickly gave her the upper hand. The fight ended with Black Widow holding what seems to be a detonator thinking that they’re finally out of danger; however, the Task Master spoke heavy words before she could take him out, “The world will remember this day, the day their heroes failed them.”

After this turn of events, something exploded on the ship presumed to be the helicarrier with Captain America still inside it. You will see what happens next in the official A-Day trailer wherein the ship eventually sinks in the San Francisco Bay, leaving a whole lot of damage to the city, the loss of many lives, and the disappearance (or maybe even death) of Captain America.

Marvel’s Avengers will be released on May 15 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One. In the meantime, you can still check out the footage on Reddit in case it gets taken down.
