Beastly Thoughts on Avengers War Table Stream
Excelsior true believers as the great Stan Lee would say. Today during the Summer of Gaming we checked out the Avengers War Table live stream talking more about the new title. Many of us have been skeptical for a while looking at the first videos and gameplay of this new Marvel title from Crystal Dynamics. As of right now things are looking good especially after the announcement if you buy Marvel’s Avengers on PS4 it will get a free PS5 upgrade. That is music to my ears if I do say so myself.
Marvel’s Avengers Villain Revealed
Do not underestimate Advanced Idea Mechanics also known as A.I.M being one villainous group that recruits only the smartest of people to join. It seems after the situation on Avengers Day which they were blamed. A.I.M has integrated themselves to be the savior while the Avengers are still licking their wounds. Enter Kamala Khan also known as Ms. Marvel. She is an Inhuman with the ability to stretch and enlarge her body. However, now that she is on MODOK’s radar also known as Dr. George Tarleton who is A.I.M’s founder.
Kamala is tasked with bringing our heroes together to face this threat. That is pretty much us having to turn a frown upside down!
This is a good move on their part introducing new avengers like Ms. Marvel who you will play as through the campaign. As you progress you will unlock other heroes on a certain quest while unlocking abilities. However, the gameplay you will see below will show off some of the combo features that many gamers will have to utilize in battles. This one focuses on Thor which is called “Once an Avenger” as we see the Thunder God show off his abilities with the help of the Hulk
Keep in mind it is an RPG
You are going to have to build your heroes and rebuild your base of operations. You have to build it your way. This is good giving players a lot of customization with not only abilities but costumes as well. You will have your choice of different skill trees to pick and choose how to advance your hero. There will be more customization unlocks throughout missions that you can pick through the world map. There will also be specific tasks to unlock other abilities, but as an avenger, it should be a piece of crumb cake.
Now here where things, where most of us will be worried as some customization, will be only unlocked through the online store. That is right microtransactions will be involved. It seems there is no escape from that. To continue there are Heroic Moves which come in three different variations.
- Assault is the most basic and represents more of a special move for each character.
- Support moves can be used to buff your teammates. As we saw in the video, Thor can provide nearby teammates with brief invulnerability.
- Ultimates are devastating but take a long time to charge.
Team Up in Warzone
They did mention a cooperative play and how could you not have co-op in a Team base game. So outside of the single-player team up with 3 of your friends or an A.I. to play specific missions. Each will offer specific objectives, boss fights, and of course rewards. This where the game comes full circle and has you play with others in order to obtain more unlocks. Thanks to Crystal Dynamics for making sure that each Warzone Mission will be story-based and will aid in your advancement in character building. Find your squads and good luck to you.
In the words of Wanda Maximoff, “Consider my spirits lifted” as I am going to pre-order this game at once. This was a better presentation and believe that Marvel fans will enjoy this new title.

How do you feel about it? There is hope that in the future they will show off Ant-man’s role in the battle and personally there is hope in DLC characters as well.
Marvel’s Avengers will be released on September 4th, 2020 with standard, deluxe, and collectors editions. – Beast Out –
