Official 18-Minute Marvel's Avengers Gameplay A-Day Prologue Released

Eight glorious minutes of Marvel's Avengers have been shown that sees the heroes facing Taskmaster and his many minions. Now the rest of us are getting a taste, thanks to a video uploaded to the game's official YouTube channel. The company also released the most gameplay anyone has seen yet early Tuesday morning. And if you're wondering what it feels like to actually play the 2020 Marvel ensemble adventure, IGN went hands-on with Marvel's Avengers at Gamescom 2019, offering us a much better sense of the game than we had previously.

A-Day is where the game kicks off, as the Avengers unveil a new high-tech headquarters in San Franciso, which includes a helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. "The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation", the release reads. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Of course, once it was unveiled, the buzz seemed to be uniformly negative.

As we learned back in June, Marvel's Avengers takes place in its own timeline, completely separate from that of the MCU or the comics. One of the biggest complaints has been a lack of access. Luckily, the action swaps from one superpowered crime fighter to another, so you don't have to watch ol' Cap blitz dudes in the face with his shield the entire time (that said, I can think of worse ways to spend nineteen minutes).
