The same studio was more than happy to make Rise of theTomb Raider game Xbox One exclusive for a year.

Exactly. This one stings more since itís not a timed exclusive. I hate all this stuff, regardless of platform.

sounds good. Better than review. Hell I loved the GameCube Hulk: Ultimate Destruction game, though never finished, but I can now. Iím sure this is much more polished...

I'm just gonna wait till Spiderman gets released and the game drops to $20.

It never looked that great. Just seems like a game that will be in the bargain bin.

Looks like you can actually grab this for free via Verizon Up. Grabbed a spare code and will use it for PC if I can.

I tried the Beta. Played for about an hour. Very, very buggy. I got to a point where Hulk is battling a boss in a Mech suit. The boss was talking and the game got stuck repeating the same half second over and over again. What made it funny was that it was repeating while he said the word "kill", so the game just kept saying "kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill" over and over again like a Friday the 13th movie.
Not an ideal experience, but I did like the intro with all the characters. Never even got to where I could play as Ms Marvel, and I didn't want to bother starting over again after that.

Gotta say, this is exactly how I thought this game would turn out.
Looks more like a game made by committee to make money rather than by artists.



Like, if they're gonna go and monetize it and make it a "live service", it should've just been a free-to-play game like Fortnight. As it is, it looks like such a hard pass...

Marvel should just have let Insomniac do more games based on their properties and spinning off the Spider-Man game. Of course, they did the exact opposite. This doesn't look like how they described it last year at all.

They could always blame it on Covid and rework it for release next year or never.

I havenít gotten to Last of Us 2 yet and have Cyberpunk preordered, so I went ahead and canceled my preorder of this. Just looks too disappointing.

Re: Marvel's Avengers (9/4/2020: XB1, PC, PS4, Stadia)

The funny thing is that I was so annoyed that the Spider-Man exclusivity would get in the way of me and my wife (and assorted friends/family) playing Avengers together, but she fired up the beta this afternoon and hated it. Complete, total revulsion. She was fed up just at the point where we could actually play together too. So I guess I'm glad I didn't preorder her a copy. Despite all of Anthem's many faults, we had a blast teaming up together with that last year, but...yeah, this'll definitely be a solo thing for me.

This isn't nearly as bad as people are saying that it is. But, it isn't very good either. Basically just a button mashing superhero game.

Funny the opinions on this game seem all over the map. If it was strictly playing with others I definitely wouldn't be interested but using ai bots to be on your team I still want to try it.

So basically a nicer looking Ultimate Alliance.

I like that more. And you certainly have a wider selection of heroes there.

I can pick up my copy of the Ultimate Edition tomorrow, but I am reluctant to do so without first reading some reviews. None are out yet.

BTW - here is a Deep Fake of the opening cinematic with the MCU actors added in. It's a much cooler game this way

Marvel's Avengers: Every Post-Launch Character Will Have a $10 Battle Pass

Reminder: All of Marvel's Avengers' post-launch heroes will be free to all players.

By Adam Bankhurst
Updated: 29 Aug 2020 5:06 pm
Posted: 29 Aug 2020 4:53 pmSquare Enix and Crystal Dynamics have revealed more details on Marvel's Avengers gear, cosmetics, vendors, marketplace, and the premium Hero Challenge Cards, which will cost $10 for each free, post-launch character.
This explainer on Gear and Cosmetics began by reiterating that all future updates - including new characters, story content, missions, and regions - will be available for free for all players.

Furthermore, while there will be cosmetic content that will be purchasable with real money, it will be aesthetic-only and will not impact gameplay in any way.
Marvel's Avengers Hero Challenge Cards, Vendors and Marketplace

Marvel Avenger's Hero Challenge Cards and Marketplace

One of the biggest ways to earn a ton of cosmetics is through the Hero Challenge Cards. Each card has 40 tiers of free and premium rewards that are earned by Challenge Points gained from completing daily and weekly challenges.

The premium Hero Challenge Card rewards for all six starting heroes - Iron Man, Kamala Khan, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and Black Widow - will be activated for free for all who own Marvel's Avengers.

All post-launch character's premium Hero Challenge Cards, however, will cost $10 (1,000 credits) to activate. Although, if you complete the entire card, you will earn back your 1,000 Credit activation cost and earn over 12,500 Credits worth of content.

Share
Autoplay setting: On
This means that post-launch character's like Clint Barton's Hawkeye and Spider-Man - who is PS4 exclusive - will be free for all players, and only extra cosmetics and their premium Hero Challenge Card will cost real-world money.

Marvel's Avengers will also feature a Marketplace that will feature "purchasable cosmetics in the form of Outfits, Emotes, Takedowns, and Nameplates." Credits will also be required to purchase these items, and a 500 credit pack will cost you $5.00. Credits will come in packs of 500, 2,000, 5,000, and 10,000, with bonus credits rewarded for the bigger packs.

Autoplay setting: On

Cosmetics and Vendors

Cosmetic items come in four different varieties - Outfits, Emotes, Takedowns, and Nameplates - and many can be earned, crafted, or purchased from vendors.

Vendors are narrative-based store operators who set up shop around Marvel's Avengers game world. They will sell Cosmetics, Gear, and Rare Resources in exchange for Units and common Resources.

Speaking of Resources, these can be found in-game and will allow you to upgrade your gear. Patterns can also be earned through play and can be used at Fabrication Machines to create an Outfit or Nameplate. Lastly, Units are Marvel's Avengers "soft-currency", which means it is in-game digital currency that has no real-world value and can be found in strongboxes or as rewards for increasing your Faction Level.

Gear Vendors will sell you character-specific Gear and Resources in exchange for Fragments, which can be earned by collecting and dismantling Gear. Gear choices will rotate daily and weekly.

Share
Autoplay setting: On
Cosmetic Vendors will take Units from the player in exchange for Outfits, Emotes, and Nameplates. Legendary Outfits will rotate weekly, while Nameplates, Emotes, and Epic & Rare Outfits rotate daily.

Marvel's Avengers will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on September 4, 2020. PS5 and Xbox Series X versions will also be released later this year.

I'm most likely waiting for reviews and a price drop. Maybe a Black Friday deal. So far the game doesn't scream "must play" on release day, unlike Spider-Man, which by all accounts looked great from the get go

I will probably cancel my pre-order. Just not appealing to me right now, but if reviews are stellar, maybe it changes my mind.

Why are they milking an unproven game that already looks like shit before it's even released?
I'm pretty sure this thing's gonna bomb, and they're not doing it any favors with this nickle & dime bullshit.

Reminds me of that Game "Evolve" There was so much pre-order DLC bullshit road mapping before it ever launched thinkihg it was gonna be a massive hit. It was one of the biggest bombs in gaming.

I could see this game being huge if this was released years ago when the MCU first exploded in popularity.

The Marvel property still has tons of value and just looking back at the success of Spider-Man, this game release should have been a no brainer. The problem is that from the get go there's been tons of red flags, from the shitty character design, to the delays (I know COVID played a part) to the no reviews to the almost no game description until recently. To many, including myself, this was sold in the beginning almost as if it was a spiritual sequel to Spider-Man done by a different company. It has turned out that this game is more like Ultimate Alliance with the nickel and dime bullshit that has ruined the industry as a whole. I hope I'm wrong and the game turns out great, but it doesn't seem like it.
