Let's be honest... it makes sense.
While Crystal Dynamics’ Scot Amos wouldn’t fully confirm to GameInformer that Avengers and Spider-Man exist in the same space, he didn’t deny it either.
“We’re all Marvel,” Amos said. “When we talk about universes or Earths or anything like that, that actually is something that Marvel is very much – they keep us honest, I’ll put it that way. Bill Rosemann at Marvel, his job is to help make sure that all of these worlds play nice with each other. What we’re explicitly saying is that this is Marvel’s Avengers, this is our world. This is what we’re going to focus on. That’s what we’re going to talk about today.”
It’s already been confirmed that Square Enix has a partnership with Sony to bring PS4 exclusive content to players — the inclusion of Spider-Man into the Avengers world certainly makes sense.
GameInformer also had Amos detail how much of the game is playable in single-player and how much requires some friends. The answer? Most, if not all of it, can be played on your lonesome. Amos just thinks players won’t want to do it that way.
“All that content, that’s out there for co-op is also playable single-player,” he said. “We have made this massive world where we’re going to keep adding more missions and more regions and more superheroes. I can play 99 percent of that single-player, but there are also pieces that we encourage you to go play in multiplayer, and that actually do further the story. Then you can go back to that single-player campaign when you want to.”
Avengers heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Stadia on 15 May 2020.
