Square Enix have revealed that the next playable character in the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game will be Kamala Khan, AKA Ms Marvel. She joins Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow and The Hulk.
Kamala Khan must apply her intellect, optimism, and unique abilities to the task of unravelling a global conspiracy and reassembling her personal heroes in time to stop a new secretive organization, Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM) before they unleash one of the greatest threats Earth has ever faced.
Watch the Kamala Khan trailer below:
Players begin the journey as Kamala Khan and learn the origins of her extraordinary powers. As the story expands, Kamala plays an essential role in bringing the disbanded Avengers back together. As each Super Hero is added to the roster, players must master all of their unique abilities, rebuild and customize the Avengers team to face increasingly growing threats only the Avengers together can defeat.
“Kamala is an inspired and perfectly fitting choice to join the ranks of, and reassemble, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” said Bill Rosemann, VP of Creative at Marvel Games. “Perhaps more than any other character invented over the past decade, Ms Marvel has not only charmed the hearts of longtime True Believers, but her unique mix of classic Marvel heroic elements and modern cultural relevance has resulted in a headline-generating cultural icon.”
“It is a thrill to see Kamala in the Marvel’s Avengers game,” said Sana Amanat, VP of Content and Character Development at Marvel. “Crystal Dynamics has done a marvellous job of crafting a brand-new take on Kamala while staying true to the spirit of her inspiring character, charismatic persona, and relatable purpose. Fans of the character are in for quite a ride, along with a few surprises, when Marvel’s Avengers makes its debut next year.”
“I think Kamala is a perfect fit for a game like this since she sees the Marvel world the same way we do as fans and players,” said G. Willow Wilson, co-creator of Ms Marvel. “Kamala allows us to imagine what we ourselves would do if we suddenly discovered we had superpowers and got to stand alongside our heroes in their time of greatest need.”
Marvel’s Avengers is set to be released on 15th May 2020 on Xbox One, PS4, Stadia and PC.
