If you’ve read a bunch of Avengers, you’ll already be pretty familiar with AIM and its mad scientists, and you might have already figured out who’s giving them their orders.
Crystal Dynamics gave us a new thrill of Marvel’s Avengers details on us last night, giving us a brand new trailer, footage of story missions, co-op shenanigans and more. We also found out some more interesting news about A.I.M, the shifty group that’s taken over since the Avengers were cancelled, and their strange leader. The stream went on for over an hour, but you can see the most important bits in the 25 minute video we are providing to you.
M.O.D.O.K (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) is include in the one of the most enduring science villains of Marvel’s series, appearing in comics since the ’60s. He’s basically a giant head that flits around in a floating chair. He’s a bit of a smarty pants, got a preternatural skill for calculating probabilities and he can control minds. He looks like he’d be played just for laughs, but he’s a major threat. The best of both worlds.
After releasing the new trailer and a quick cutscene, we get Chance to see Thor in action.Thor is my personally favourite, Thor was the Avenger I enjoyed playing the most during the Gamescom demo last year because he felt so much like Kratos in the latest God of War, and it’s a lot of fun for me to watch him running around and dismantling machines with Mjolnir.
We also have a closer look at customisation, both practical and cosmetic. Along with new moves and actions, heroes get gear, which comes with perks that modify abilities of fighting, and costumes. Some gear changes the type of damage, so you can switch from plasma attacks to gamma attacks very quickly as well, while other perks give your attacks weird effects, like shrinking enemies within less time. Costumes, meanwhile, are purely cosmetic, but boy do they look good. Your helicarrier can be upgraded and customised, too.
These other superheroes taking on A.I.M will also give you amazing Warzone missions, which can be played with three other people or AI buds. Like in the solo missions, you’re following the story and making progress in your fight against M.O.D.O.K, and the amazing missions range from big, open levels with lots of exploration to interiors packed with enemies. When you’re teaming up with other heroes, you can also pull off fancy team finishers, taking out tough enemies together.
