An extended gameplay featurette for Marvel’s Avengers shows Captain America unleash his skills as he leads the team against A.I.M.
With Marvel’s Avengers less than a month away from its long-awaited release, Crystal Dynamics has begun to unveil more of the superhero action video game’s features, with Captain America as the focus of a new featurette.
The Sentinel of Liberty takes point leading the Avengers in a raid on an A.I.M. facility in an extended look at the character in action, using his signature shield against enemies and other targets while hoverboots allow him to rise above the fight and strike his next opponent.
Captain America will come with three different skill trees to upgrade his abilities, with many of the unlockable techniques expanding his array of melee attacks and providing different ways for him to utilize his vibranium shield in combat. The character also comes with a set of alternate costumes that are unlocked as the superhero progressively levels up, from color swaps of his usual star-spangled outfit to one that has him bare-chested in prisoner gear.
Marvel’s Avengers opens with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes attacked while opening a new West Coast headquarters at the start of the game’s story. Picking up the pieces and recruiting new heroes, the Avengers reassemble to strike against the true perpetrators of the West Coast assault: A.I.M. and the villainous M.O.D.O.K.
Developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal and published by Square Enix, Marvel’s Avengers arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC on Sept. 4.
