Marvel's Avengers is an action adventure game set in Marvel universe. The title is a live-service game and is constantly developed and updated with new content. The production was created as a result of cooperation of Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal. The publication was taken up by Square-Enix.
The story of Marvel's Avengers begins on the A-Day, when the new, technologically advanced headquarters of the Avengers in San Francisco opens. The ceremony is hosted by a group of superheroes: Thor, Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America and the Black Widow. The event ends tragically - a series of explosions destroys the centre and blame is put on the heroes.
The action, in which the player takes part begins 5 years after these events. The heroes are hiding from justice. A new threat, however, makes the wanted heroes the only chance to save humanity.
Marvel's Avengers is a classic representative of the action adventure game genre. The game focuses on exploration of subsequent stages and fighting opponents. The creators made sure that every hero attacks in a way characteristic for their comic book counterpart. The thing is, the gameplay changes with the hero we control.
The title also implements a character progression system. As we progress, new abilities and equipment are unlocked, enabling us to continuously increase the effectiveness of our heroes. In addition, in the game we can find various cosmetic items that enable us to personalize our characters.

The developers of Marvel's Avengers made sure that the characters look similar to their comic book counterparts - they were not modelled on the live-action creations from the extremely popular Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
