Now Playing: Marvel's Avengers Story And Co-Op Details Announced At SDCC - GS News Update

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

It's day two of San Diego Comic-Con, and the slew of big news for all the latest upcoming movies, TV, games, and comics is only beginning. During the Marvel Games panel during the event, the comic book company gave the first new details on the Avengers game from Crystal Dynamics since it debuted at E3 2019.

Marvel explained that once you finish the prologue--which acts as an introduction to each of its major characters--the world opens up and you gain access to a base on a reclaimed Helicarrier. From there you'll launch into single-player or co-op missions. The story campaign will be recognizable as a linear action game with you playing each character as the story unfolds.

The story trailer hinted at cameos from other notable names in the Marvel universe, as it was narrated by Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, who was attending the A-Day celebration.

For online missions, you can customize each Avenger with their own skill trees and cosmetics, and then team up with friends. The panel didn't announce what the larger world missions will consist of, but it's separate from the standard story missions.

Fans will be able to see all this for themselves shortly after Gamescom. The panel announced that footage of the demo will be released the week after that event, which is set to take place in late August.

They need to remake The Avengers arcade game. One of the best arcade quarter eaters ever, and it gets no love!

Have some respect man. I hate the "get with the times" saying.

So...only people born in 1990 have heard of it?
