Marvel’s Avengers Developers Take a Closer Look at A.I.M.

Crystal Dynamics takes a look at Marvel's Avengers' biggest threat, A.I.M., in their latest video.

The Avengers are known for having an unending supply of bad guys to fight. Thanos, Hydra, Skrulls, H.A.M.M.E.R., the list goes on and on. But those who played the Marvel’s Avengers open beta know that the focus for the upcoming game is on A.I.M.

Hardcore comic fans will recognize Advanced Idea Mechanics from their many appearances throughout the years in Avengers comics, but more casual fans might know them as the baddies led by Aldrich Killian from Iron Man 3 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Crystal Dynamics, Marvel’s Avengers’ developers, helped fans who aren’t as familiar with A.I.M. by releasing a video called “Who is A.I.M.?” to give them a proper introduction. In the video, they go into A.I.M.’s background both historically in the comics as well as their background in the game to really inform players what they’re going up against.

“We want people to want to fight A.I.M., but at the same time, we also really really want you to love A.I.M.,” Jeff Adams, associate art director at Crystal Dynamics says in the video implying that players are going to get deep into their story during the plot of the game.

“You’re going to come up against a wide variety of A.I.M. threats as you play through the world of Marvel’s Avengers,” Adams says.

The newest version of Marvel’s Avengers beta opened a few days early for those who missed the first beta and are looking to try out the game for a few hours before it officially launches on September 4.
