The demo looks really fun and each of the characters felt pretty distinct even just while watching.

They have a lot of dev time left so can’t wait to see where they end up.

Should hold off on your doubt until they are ready to show the gameplay cause it seems like it’ll be a metric load of fun. I had a grin on my face throughout the gameplay.
I guess you can't comment whether or not this game is connected to PS4 Spider-Man?

Yeah it behind closed door only.
Bummer. I dont like those ppl tweeting about it then.

It feels like they are being paid to praise it or disingenuous. I read they don't want to show it because it's still not polished. Ok so let's cut the praise of this rough cut and just say no one is seeing shit. Wait next year or until beta.

I guess the teasing is part of the promotional stuff but ppl are just talking about the small teaser which isn't good to begin with. I think a gameplay segment would answer lots of questions and keep the hype.

From Marvel’s official YouTube channel alone it has already 7 million views, with a bigger number of likes than the Spider-Man reveal trailer three years ago. I think it’s safe to say that if Square is able to deliver, they have a monstrous hit in their hands, even bigger than the Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Scratch that, it could also rival TLOUII.

This is how you don't reveal a game. Show some CGI that just looks like a B movie or stunt doubles or just plain bad. Show no gameplay then hide gameplay behind closed door. What were they thinking?

Full E3 Coliseum panel details:
  • Original story that Crystal is spearheading
  • Avengers are in "disarray", "guilt and loss", will see how all of these Avengers deal with it
  • Own spin on characters, not trying to ape films, went through 60 years of comics
  • Taking inspiration from West Coast Avengers
  • The Avengers and SHIELD decide to band together and have their own themed Helicarrier called the Chimera that houses the experimental technology that sets off the events of A-Day
  • Biggest challenge is that every character is so different, combat uniquely catered to each character, each characters "feels like its own game"
  • Each character has unique traversal, grappling hooks, wall jumps, flight, etc.
  • Only one hero is allowed, 4 Hulks won't be running around per team
  • Can "straight-shot" the story by yourself, or jump-in/jump out instantaneously with your friends
  • For the single-player campaign, you will only be able to play the character that is designated per mission
  • Live service, but also very narrative focused, "can't really compare it to any other game"
  • Said to "stay tuned" for people wondering where certain characters (coughHawkeyecough) are
  • When asked about if Spider-Man and Avengers are connected, Bill Rosemann said that they "are just focused on making the best Avengers game"

Closed doors. Impressions have gone out via press etc. Probably not going to see gameplay for a bit.
Ah damn. From the impressions it sounds like the game is super early, so it might be for the best.

Praying this isn’t released in a rushed state and patched month after month to eventually resemble a playable game. Sure fire way to kill hype surrounding a title, and it seems all too common these days.

I'm just guessing but based on the forecast, SE already pushed the game out of the FY once, so I don't feel they're rushing this to meet some deadline.

Another thing, all the Q&As said free heroes and regions. It's an oddly specific term to use. Maybe some kind of content tied to these regions/worlds (possibly multiplayer/story missions?) could be paid for.

Can one play the game totally single player offline rather than online?

You can play just about everything by yourself if you want to. I encourage you to play with your buddies. It's so much more fun in multiplayer. But yeah, most of this stuff you can play by yourself.
I noticed how they didn't say if it can be played offline.

I wouldn’t be shocked if Avengers topped Cyberpunk if they are able to work around the kinks. This has potential of being the first ‘Overwatch’ of the next gen, if done right. Eidos and Marvel are handling a machine of printing money, if they do it right, the concept and the characters popularity might be enough to top Cyberpunk, which will likely be Rated R.

Yeah definitely, they must do it right cause people will be spending a ton of money for any cosmetics in this game. And the Marvel lore is so deep this can go for years.

Alright, the Easy Allies guys saw the demo and now I’m truly on board on the hype train:


Around 31:40, what they are describing here sounds fucking amazing, and also it explains why it wasn’t revealed to the public yet: since it’s still pre-alpha, it still glitchy in parts, but they seem genuinely excited about the game and gameplay. Can’t wait to see this when they are ready to show us.

Fantastic, this is what I was hoping for the most. I enjoy MUA but if I play as Iron Man and Thor I wanna really move and feel different, same with Hulk. All the characters feeling different is a must.

I really like Nolan North's voice for the likes of Uncharted but his voice is exactly the same in every game and I'm honestly getting a bit burnt out on so many game characters sounding identical to Nathan Drake; it's really distracting.

Regarding the character design: I have no issue with them not resembling the MCU and being their own distinct characters (Insomniac did a great job on Spidey PS4) but these designs are really dull and uninspiring.

Despite that, the in-engine footage looks great and the lack of post-launch loot boxes / pay to win deserves support; as does what I expect to be solid story driven gameplay.

Yeah, I assume this is why we're not seeing it on the floor. People would be ripping it for technical issues and memeing the shit out of it. That said, I feel like they still could have put out a pre-recorded cleaned up version just to show us, but maybe it's not quite there yet even for that.

It sounds ambitious, but what I saw at E3 doesn't really hint at that ambition. It just looks like a short slice of a decent enough third-person action game that happens to feature multiple characters. The reveal would've benefited from being more comprehensive in my opinion, connecting the dots between this one level of set pieces and the scope of this overall years-long plan. A game starring these characters, by this collection of strong developers, should be a surefire win. Hopefully, as we learn more about what sounds like a massive game, it will start to come together.

These guys like everything, though.

As I said in the other thread, if it still is rough around the edges then delay it another 3-6 months. Launching with Scarlet/PS5 would also be welcome.

How many Bruce Banners have we had?
A lot, but people are not having a problem with Banner. Actually they said Banner/Hulk is the okay one. Romanoff, Rogers, Stark, Thor are the ones people have a problem with and we have only really had one (big) iteration of those characters on live action. I think they just look generic to be honest

Ben from Giant Bomb saw this and saw it was rough. Top to bottom the showing of this game at their public debut has just been such a head-scratcher.

Since some posters said there was no gameplay, there definitely was gameplay in the trailer. No surprise to me because I immediately noticed the bits of gameplay but it's good to have confirmation. Anyone interested can watch this clip, it shows the parts that are gameplay.

This was my second most anticipated game of E3, but what they showed in the conference didn't help generate much hype personally due to the lack of gameplay and those super generic character models.

That said, it's still a safe wager this will be a fun, fantastic game. Just still needs time in the oven clearly.

Hopefully the single player campaign is not bare bones. I can't shake the feeling that the online is just another Anthem/GAAS waste
