Since the first playable demo for Marvel’s Avengers is currently accessible at Gamescom Square Enix wanted to make sure that everyone had a chance to see how the game played and they have done so with a new nineteen minute long gameplay video. This video features Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor battle Taskmaster and his army of mercenaries in the opening level, a Hero tutorial where players learn the unique powers of the Avengers.
Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco—including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. 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.
