We guessed this when the first trailers came out, but the upcoming Avengers video game is going to star Kamala Khan! That’s great! Though this first footage of her gameplay still makes me think this game is going to be totally on rails.
The cut scene animations, story and character acting all seem great, though. As excited as I am for a good Avengers game, especially one starring Ms. Marvel, I’m probably going to wait for the reviews on this one. This game could have all the polish in the world, but still be boring if you’re just doing what the game tells you to do at all times.
We’ll see. The Avengers game comes out on May 15.
A full blown Avengers video game is due out sometime next year, featuring a movie-similar cast and a bunch of production values. As an Avengers and video game fan, I’m pretty excited. But this longer look at the opening section has me hesitantly cautious.
My major concern is that the game looks way too on-rails. I like a good free roam game. This whole opening segment looks like one long quick time event, where the game controls where you go and how you get there, you just need to press the corresponding button to make that happen.
Of course, that might just be how the opening prologue works, like a tutorial. Either way, I’m still excited, but now more cautious.
There’s also a Ms. Marvel tease about halfway through, so she’s definitely going to be in the game. Pretty sure she’s the narrator.
