Marvel's Avengers New Video Embiggens Our Look at Kamala Khan's Powers
After her reveal at New York Comic Con, a new video for Marvel's Avengers showcases Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel in action with new gameplay.
With its full reveal earlier this year at E3 2019, the long-awaited Marvel’s Avengers from Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated games to arrive in the first half of next year. While we already knew that the game would feature the original six members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the game will also expand with a number of new characters after launch, with the one and only Kamala Khan confirmed to be coming to the game as a playable character.
Following her reveal this week at New York Comic Con 2019, Crystal Dynamics has released a new character profile video that gives us a closer look at Kamala Khan in action, with a few new (but brief) glimpses of gameplay. Specifically, the video gives us a demonstration of her signature “Embiggen” power that allows her to morph her body to become more powerful, such as her giant hands that can lay the smackdown on enemies.
While the game is already highly anticipated for the fact that we’ll get to play as iconic superheroes like Iron Man and Captain America, the fact that lesser-known characters like Kamala Khan will be added to the game has made me even more excited to see what Crystal Dynamics has up their sleeves. As it seems that she will have a large role to play in the story, I’m looking forward to seeing how Marvel’s Avengers can expand on what we know of the world of Marvel from the MCU, especially as we see other Marvel characters (such as Hank Pym) added to the game later on through DLC.
Marvel’s Avengers will release for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on May 15, 2020, and you can pre-order the game now over on Amazon. For more on the upcoming title, you can read our full impressions from a hands-on no pun intended) preview session with the game at New York Comic Con 2019.
