Cyrstal Dynamics promises great differences between each hero, so that we feel that each one is “basically their own game.”
Marvel’s Avengers is one of the most important video games of the last section of 2020; an intergenerational title with which Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics intend to publish the definitive work of the Avengers in the electronic leisure sector. The ambition of the title, which pretends to be a game as a service, also resides in the difference between characters; starting, six. FreeGameTips has been able to interview the North American study, which does not speak in depth about this point.
“Each one is basically their own game”
Vince Napoli, combat director, explains that, to make the six characters feel attractive, “we have looked individually at each of the heroes” and initially wondered what the players wanted to see of Black Widow, of Iron Man , Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Kamala Khan; how they could highlight the individual characteristics of each hero so that they felt unique at the controls. “If you do that with each character, highlight their powers, and don’t stray from writing custom systems and awesome mechanics, you will result in a cast of heroes playing very, very different from each other. They don’t even share a combat code, or abilities. Each one is basically their own game, “he says.
Balancing is another fundamental aspect so that there are no imbalances, especially in online games, and that they can assume their own role; that are not just different skins. “Once we had the Avengers, with their own unique powers and abilities, we wondered how we could design their counters; identify ways to counter them and how to beat them. In our role as designers, we’ve also wanted to ask ourselves the question of how we could beat each Avenger. That is the trick to balance each character, how can you defeat the character you just created? ”, He ends.
The study also confirmed that the main campaign will be “just the beginning” since it is in the endgame where they hope to offer more doses of content for both single player and cooperative multiplayer.
Marvel’s Avengers will be available in stores on September 4 on PS4, Xbox One and PC in both physical and digital formats. Later it will also appear on Google Stadia. If we get the game for the console versions, Sony and Microsoft users will receive a free copy for PS5 and Xbox Series X when they hit the market, an edition that will have technical, performance and resolution improvements that will be detailed little little by little. For example, on PS5 the resolution will be 4K and 60 FPS.
