Vinc Napoli, lead Marvel’s Avengers combat system designer, spoke to IGN about all of his abilities.
What is known
At the start, players will have access to Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Miss Marvel and Thor. Each will receive a unique set of skills and fighting style.
The black widow is called the fastest of the six. According to Napoli, the development of a combat system for Natasha was first and foremost, since the team had to create a hero without superpowers who were fighting against the “gods”.
As a result, they decided to make the Black Widow adroit, givingheroine the fastest attacks and combinations of punches in the game. She can also switch to electric batons, conducting slower but more powerful attacks.
The second feature of the Black Widow is invisibility. The girl is able to quickly enter and exit the disguise mode, deceiving enemies and delivering sudden blows.
Gameplay for Captain America is built onthe ability to throw a shield that will allow you to carry out "combos" at a distance. In addition, it is important to observe timings. For example, having guessed the moment after the throw, Cap can kick the shield back to the opponent.
Napoli previously answered fans' questions aboutMarvel’s Avengers, where he said that Captain America can run on walls, do somersaults and attack the enemy with a body push. The developer described the hero as a balance of dexterity and strength.
The Hulk, in turn, relies more on strength andenvironment. The hero's peculiarity is the ability to grab enemies and objects around, which can then be used as a weapon. In addition, the Hulk can inflict damage on the area, climbing high buildings and jumping on enemies.
Iron Man relies on repulsors and attacks from a distance. In the arsenal of the hero will be 36 techniques for long-range combat, which can flow into close combat.
Miss Marvel’s tricks are based on the attacks of the Avengers,like the “light blow” of the Black Widow, or the push from the shoulder of the Hulk. According to Napoli, the girl joined the heroes and learns from them, so borrowing tricks looks logical.
“She has an attack version of almost every character,but in the style of Kamala. We just wanted to give such a feeling, saying: “She is studying, and where will she study? Where did she actually get her inspiration? Of course, these will be the other Avengers, ”Napoli says.
By its fighting style, Thor resembles Kratos fromGod of War in 2018, which is not surprising, because Napoli worked on the exclusive PlayStation 4. Nevertheless, the deal is not limited to hammering. Thor can electrify himself by creating a shield from lightning, attack enemies with lightning, or charge special attacks with the elements.
Marvel’s Avengers will be released on September 4PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. The developers also promise versions for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, which will receive free game owners for the current generation of consoles.
