Marvel's Avengers DLC Will Be Free, And There's No Loot Boxes Either

Marvel's Avengers DLC Will Be Free, And There's No Loot Boxes Either

Square Enix finally unveiled Marvel's Avengers at E3 2019 to thunderous applause and a few skeptics still unconvinced. Senior producer Rose Hunt reiterated Therien's point, noting that the team at Crystal Dynamics want Marvel's Avengers "to have world stakes".

Fast forward five years later and the Avengers have disbanded and superheroes in general have been outlawed. Master extraordinary abilities, customize a growing roster of Heroes, assemble into teams of up to four players, and defend the Earth from escalating threats.

The trailer kicks off with an Avengers Day celebration in San Francisco to ring in the opening of the team's new West Coast headquarters. They include Captain America aka Steve Rodgers, Thor, Hulk aka Bruce Banner, Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff and Iron Man aka Tony Stark.

"They're over that shit, they did it for like ten years, so they're good to go" LIRIK explains, "so of course some other people are going to play the characters".

However, Square Enix also mentioned you can "unlock powerful skills and new gear", with "nearly limitless ways to customise" the heroes so we're certainly allowed to expect some sort of in-game transactions.

Each hero will have multiple outfits and costumes to choose from, from classic looks to more modern ones, and even all-new designs created exclusively for the game! Aside from PS4, Marvel's Avengers will also be available for Xbox One, PC, and Google's upcoming streaming platform, Stadia.

Anyone who pre-orders Marvel's Avengers will gain access to the game's beta, and those who pre-order on PS4 will get exclusive first access.

"We won't have random loot boxes or pay-to-win scenarios", Crystal Dynamic's Meagan Marie said. However, for those anxious that Hawkeye won't have at least some kind of appearance in Marvel's Avengers, Marvel Games VP and Creative Director Bill Rosemann has suggested otherwise.
