Marvel’s Avengers Game Director Says the Game Will “Continue to Change as We Polish”

The game director for Marvel's Avengers comments on how they'll continue to polish the game leading up to the game's release.

In a new PCGamesN, Marvel’s Avengers game director Casey Lynch comments on changes coming to the game leading up to its release next May.

“Everything about the game is going to continue to change as we polish, as we approach launch right now, but things that we’ve shown at E3 and here, it’s been pre-alpha,” Lynch says. “There’ll be changes to everything from the characters to a lot of what you see.”

Since it’s showing at E3, the reception to Marvel’s Avengers has been lukewarm, including from Dualshockers’ own Logan Moore. Furthermore, it’s been confirmed the game’s story can only be played in single-player mode rather than multiplayer.

“By changes, we’re talking about polish,” says a spokesperson from Square-Enix. “What we’re doing is we are continuing to add detail to their character models, we’re improving the lighting, we’re improving the skin shading. So, what you’re hopefully seeing is the characters continuing to look better as we get closer to launch. But in terms of changing character designs, that’s not currently what we’re looking at.”

With the game launching in May, it makes sense for changes such as lighting and character details to change. Personally, I think the game has potential to be a fun and great Avengers game. With Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal handling the development, it’s bound to have a great story featuring Earth’s mightest heroes.

Marvel’s Avengers launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 15, 2020. Additionally, it’ll come to Google Stadia at a later date. The game is available for preorder on Amazon now.
