Marvel's Avengers Will Be Supported for "Multiple Years"

Matthew Byrd Oct 9, 2019

It sounds like the story of Marvel's Avengers will not be finished in the retail version of the game.

Rich Briggs, senior brand director for Marvel's Avengers developer Crystal Dynamics, recently spoke to Comicbook regarding the length of the upcoming game and the studio's long-term ambition for the project.

“We're not putting exact numbers on it just yet, but you can expect something comparable to what we've done in the past,” says Briggs. "If you think about previous Crystal games, you know that if you want to be playing your way through the core story, it's going to be in that area, 10 to 12 hours. But if you want to see everything there is, and do all the side missions and everything else, you're generally looking at 30 plus hours in the Tomb Raider games."

Interestingly, Briggs also notes that the game will also feature an "extended narrative

“It’s weird how everyone stares at you. It’s like being famous,” Vikander’s friend played by Riley Keough says in the trailer.

Marvel’s Avengers Dev Reveals How Long The Main Campaign Will Be

Just how long is Marvel’s Avengers intended to hold your attention for when it finally launches next year?

Billed as both a single and multiplayer experience that’s big on narrative as well as optional extras, developer Crystal Dynamics clearly intends for its superhero action-adventure to have a long shelf life, a mission plan that it will expand upon with a wealth of free post-launch Dlc. Additional characters and zones are already confirmed to be included under that banner, but even without such updates, Marvel’s Avengers is going to be big.

In a recent interview, Crystal Dynamics senior brand director Rich Briggs was quizzed on the hours of playtime fans could expect to accumulate during their time with the game, and stipulated that individual preferences and playstyles would assuredly result in an eclectic range of completion times.

What We Know about Tomb Raider 2 So Far

According to Ryan Scott of MovieWeb there’s not a lot to say about Tomb Raider 2 other than it’s a go and it will be taken over by a different writer and director since the director for the first one didn’t seem capable of delivering what people wanted the first time around. That’s not to say that the first Tomb Raider with Alicia Vikander wasn’t a success, but it wasn’t such a massive success that critics weren’t heard over the cries of the fans and the adulation that was being tossed at it.
