In a day and age where single players games thrive on the story, many developers take the time to etch out a story which the players can enjoy over a number of hours before feeling like it finishes too soon, but Marvel’s Avengers will not have a huge story rather, the campaign will be roughly about 12 hours.
This will greatly reduce every superhero’s influence on the game and might run the risk of the game feeling incomplete, however, it is being reported that to complete the entire game with side missions it will take about 30 hours.
Crystal Dynamics’ Senior Brand Director Rich Briggs said, “I think it’ll depend on exactly how deep you want to go into it. So if you think about previous Crystal games, you know that if you want to be playing your way through the core story, it’s going to be in that area, 10 to 12 hours.
But if you want to see everything there is, and do all the side missions and everything else, you’re generally looking at 30 plus hours like in the Tomb Raider games. So we’re not putting exact numbers on it just yet, but you can expect something comparable to what we’ve done in the past with that regard. And then, of course, you have the extended narrative and the extended game plan, more heroes post-launch.”
There will be additional content that will be released for free to the players post-launch which will have more heroes, regions, and stories building up on the main storyline.
Marvel’s Avengers is being developed by Crystal Dynamics and will be releasing on May 15, 2020.
