Crystal Dynamic's Marvel's Avengers launched to a buggy start but comic book fans and gamers can't deny the epicness of the title. With a solid launch roster featuring Capt. America, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow and Ms. Marvel, we can safely say that the game is off to a good start.
Moving forward, Crystal Dynamic's has planned to release new characters for free. These new characters for the game will come with their own campaign which is surprising news. Most developers nowadays prefer the paid DLC route for their games - especially for AAA games.
Moving forward, we already know that Hawkeye and Kate Bishop are coming to the game. For those playing on PlayStation console, Spider-Man comes as an exclusive content update.
The big question is - who's next?
Fans dug deep into the game during its beta phase. In it, it was revealed that there were a total of 15 heroes planned for the game. The list includes Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, War Machine, Peter Parker, Ant-Man, Wasp, Vision, Black Panther, Dr Strange, Falcon, Mar-Vell, Mockingbird, Quake, Winter Soldier, and Scarlet Witch.
The leak also includes Kate Bishop, who at the time wasn't confirmed yet. This basically means that one of the names from the leaks did arrive, further adding fuel to the fire.
Upon seeing the leaks, Marvel's fans are ecstatic. Crystal Dynamics is taking in heroes from generations of Marvel Comics. Considering how popular the MCU is, it's a big surprise and relief to fans that the developers aren't confining themselves to what's on film and TV.
This sounds like an amazing lineup but some fans suggests that it's too good to be true. As such, the leaks should be taken with a grain of salt.
If the leaks are indeed real, fans are excited to see how Crystal Dynamics will make heroes like Ant-Man, Wasp, and Dr. Strange work. They're undoubtedly the ones with the most unique abilities from the lineup. Marvel's Avengers is now available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. New-gen versions are confirmed but no release date has been given about them yet.
