The entertainment industry is growing day by day. Disney, Warner Brothers, Paramount and Universal are ruling movie business whereas Ubisoft, Rockstar, EA, and Sony are doing the same in the gaming business. Recently E3 2019 was held where fans got the chance to see new game footage from upcoming games. Cyberpunk 2077 got a huge buzz because of Keanu Reeves involvement. Halo Infinite, Final Fantasy 7 remake, Watch Dogs Legion, Star wars also shined in the expo. Square Enix shined with Final Fantasy but got the mixed reviews for its Avengers Game.
Marvel Cinematic Universe is bigger than ever. The MCU has produced 22 movies and has grossed 21 billion dollars worldwide. Avengers Endgame and Infinity War joined the 2 billion dollar club. Square Enix wanted to capitalize on the perfect moment of MCU being bigger. The first trailer for The Avengers Project was launched in 2017. The hype was very real for the game but the trailer made fans very disappointing. The characters look very different than fans expected. I was expecting the character to look somehow similar to Marvel movies but I was very disappointed.
The only character that looked good was the Hulk. Apart from Hulk, other characters look awful. Captain America is a fan-favorite character. However, Captain America in the game does not look pretty impressive. I can be okay with Iron Man but Black Widow and Thor look just bad. People at Twitter and Reddit were complaining about Black Widow’s look. The story looks pretty interesting but the game-play looks pretty decent. Fans wanted something unique and new but Square Enix was not able to step up.
Fans are also complaining about the absence of Clint Barton (Hawkeye). People were pissed off when Hawkeye was absent from Avengers Infinity War marketing and the movie. I don’t know why the studio wanted to get into trouble again. We expect him to show up in the game but keeping him out of marketing might not be a great idea. The only thing that can attract Marvel fans and gamers might be the story. The trailer reveals Captain America is dead and Avengers is disassembled. Fans are still mourning the death of Tony Stark in Avengers Endgame. The trailer for Avengers game looks okay but it looks nothing like Marvel fans expected.
