PAX AUS 2019 – Marvel’s Avengers
Not launching till May 2020, is Marvel Avengers, developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, the 10-minute demo see you take control of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, and The Incredible Hulk trying to regain control of a bridge, with armed mercenaries desperately trying to gun you down.
Disappointingly, the game does not feature voice acting from the cast of the box office film franchise, and at times comes across as very cheesy.  The seamless transition between gameplay and realtime rendered cutscenes flow well maintaining a constant action packed pace.
The game, still technically in early stages of development, appears to be targeting 30 FPS, even on the PS4 Pro, but seems to dip into the low 20’s in action heavy sequences featuring explosions or the like.
For the most part, Hulk, Thor and Captain America control very well.  Unfortunately the same can not be said for Iron Man and Black Widow, due to their move-sets relying heavily on precision targeting which unfortunately to put simply, just isn’t very precise.
Hopefully this is all a work in progress and we see some big changes before release!
