Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor just so happen to be unveiling an Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco as well as their own helicarrier powered energy source. However, the celebration doesn’t last long when an accident strikes and the Avengers Disband. Five years later, in a time where Super Heroes are outlawed, Earth must call upon these heroes to help them against approaching evil.
Marvel’s Avengers will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 4.
