    She is a D-List superhero, she just pops up in stuff more than occasionally because Marvel keeps pushing here.

    She's such a funny corporate product of the time she was made too. As a new Ms. Marvel, she should be a mutant given the originals long history with the X-Men. But Marvel was going through the most major portion of their bitchfit over Fox owning some of something they paid them for, so instead of being a mutant, she's tied into the Inhumans...which funnily enough are now going to be behind the Eternals as that other group of characters who aren't the X-Men.

    Huh they are pushed to the frantic cross-gen season. Delayed from May to September 4th: https://crystald.com/news/important-marvels-avengers-update

    It's coincide with delaying Final Fantasy VII remake to April.

    I have high hopes that this is going to a dumpsterfire of epic proportions, overflowing with the butthurt and salty tears of a thousand manboys.

    Reading about this is tickling my nostalgia bone.

    I wonder if it would be actually fun to play this with my old high school friends I used to hang out in arcades with. Probably not, but maybe.

    Nothing like an opening salvo of costume microtransactions.

    I wonder how much Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montrea hate that they've been saddled with Kamala Khan as the lead of their giant Avengers game? Kamala Khan, a character nobody actually gives a shit about, in some of the worst selling comics Marvel puts out. I'd guess they wanted Spider-Man, (Ms. Marvel is basically Spider-Man [with Mr. Fantastic powers] but without the personality, cool costume, or rogues' gallery) and Marvel was like: How about this character instead.

    I don't think I have ever seen a more underwhelming super hero to be honest. I liked Spiderman for PS4, and I guess I could have liked this, but Kamala Khan makes sure I have zero interest in it though.

    I bet it was Crystal Dynamics themselves that chose her. With the way the past 2 tomb raiders have been, I can't think much else.

    Does this have local coop ? I remember having played some Marvel superhero game 10-15 years
    ago in coop with my brothers. It was some sort of top-down view beat-em-up with up to 4 players
    in local coop. Is it similar to Fighting Force or something different ?

    Unless things have changed, this game stupidly will not have local co-op.

    They did make a new Marvel Ultimate Alliance game with Team Ninja, although it's only on Switch, which does have local co-op. The previous ones by Raven Software, or their X-Men Legends games are most likely what you played in the past.

    I started seriously wondering if it was a mobile first game for a while. The whole equipment/levelup and basic combat mechanics looked very f2p pw2 mobile game to me.

    Deus Ex died for this
    looks fun though
    Also shouldn't this go in MMO/Online discussion since it's a Destiny/Warframe-like game?

    It really is amazing on western devs can do good action combat to save their lives...

    Also I don't know if said this already but there's absolutely no reason for a super-heroes videogames to go it a realistic look instead of the colourful artstyle of a comic book. Specially when the live-action movies themselves are already ditching the "realistic" approach.

    imagine spending (probably) 100-150 million dollars to fund an Avengers game with AAA production values but neglect to get the likenesses

    lol

    also game looks like shit. My original comment on the new reveal:

    In it's defence, it's clearly not meant to be set in the MCU. It's it's own universe alongside the Spider-Man game on PS4. The likenesses of the MCU actors probably cost more than the entire budget of the game for something that is ultimately pointless. The game looks like it's trying to put all that cash towards an average Warframe rip off. But without the satisfying gameplay. Or the tedious grind. I'd have thought the special needs Funko Pops slurpers would be all over this but the lack of marketing is really hurting it. No one seems to care.

    But I think using that realist style is inviting all the comparisons with the MCU. If they didn't want to get, they should have gone for a more comic book style
