It’s been quite some time since Marvel introduced Marvel's Avengers at the E3 earlier this year. Marvel has been really successful in making fans curious about how the game would be in action. In the Comic Con at San Diego, many actually looked forward to trying out the game during the Avengers panel. Unfortunately, the attendees could only watch the demo.

The footage showed us clearly the way this game works. In Marvel’s Avengers, players will control the whole Avenger team - however,  each member would be controlled individually. Furthermore, the control will switch automatically between different segments. For example, you may fly around as Iron Man in this scene and smash everything around you as the Hulk in the next.

Each of the Avengers owns a unique skill set mirroring everything we’ve seen from other games, movies and especially comics. The combat in this game really looks similar to Marvel's Spider-Man, which means there would be a lot of combo attacks, fluid dodging and finally Quick-Time Events.

In the live-tweeting during the panel, Marvel's Avengers’ official Twitter account revealed a rough release date for the demo footage —around a week after Gamescom 2019.

Gamescom is going to take place from the 20th to the 24th of August. Therefore, you will have to wait until the week of August 26 to see the footage of the demo. Until then, the game’s developer - Crystal Dynamics - will have approximately a whole month of polishing.

According to a tweet from the game's Twitter page, the setting of Marvel's Avenger would occur like this: "A-Day sets the stage for the rest of the game. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes."

Square Enix - the game’s publisher has revealed an unusual amount of concern relating to the Avengers demo. There is a high chance that it is due to the lukewarm reception of the game at E3 2019. After watching the demo, Samuel though that it "didn't exactly look superheroic."

For what it’s worth, the game will be released on the 15th of May 2020. The game will be available on Google Stadia, Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
