We’ve been waiting all year to say this: Marvel’s Avengers is now available on Xbox One! With an epic single-player campaign, online co-op, and tons of post-game features that will be rolling out for years to come, today’s the day we can grab our controllers and live out our superhero backyard battles as our favorite Marvel characters. Read on below for a full overview on all of the game’s many features and pick up Marvel’s Avengers today on the Xbox Store.

Become Marvelous

Start your adventure with an epic single-player campaign that features a new and original narrative with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. After a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation leaving superheroes outlawed and the world in peril, you’ll step into the shoes of teenager Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel) as she uncovers a shocking conspiracy. Now the world’s only hope is for Kamala to reassemble the Avengers to stop the evil Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM).

Throughout this single-player campaign (it’s recommended you complete before playing online to avoid spoilers), you’ll rebuild a roster of heroes, master extraordinary abilities, and customize a growing batch of playable characters like Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and others as you endeavor to save the world from threats big and small.

Continue the Fight

The Avengers Initiative is at the heart of the game’s expanding world, where you can jump in and play online co-op with up to four other players to defend Earth from threats that only the Avengers can defeat. This is where you can continue to hone your team while playing through a series of interconnected stories, missions, and personal hero arcs that take place after the conclusion of the single-player campaign. The Avengers Initiative will evolve over time with the free addition of new heroes, villains, regions, and gear for years to come.

Enter the War Zone

The War Zone is an expansive, explorable space that can be played solo or co-op, loaded with side content including caches to uncover, powerful bounty enemies to defeat, AIM depots to take over, faction allies to rescue, and hidden rewards to claim. You can access these via the War Table — found in Outposts, Quinjets, and the Chimera Helicarrier – which keeps tabs on AIM’s activities all over the world.

Up to four players can matchmake into a Strike Team together to complete War Zone missions, and with around 80+ missions available at launch, you have tons of options on what to play in Marvel’s Avengers  — and who to play it with!

Play with Friends

If you’d prefer to assemble a group of friends to your Strike Team, it’s as easy as hovering over their Nameplate and selecting them in the Social tab from the Character menu. Don’t worry if your friends are at a higher level than you. When in a Strike Team, levels are unified across the team. Also, Challenge rating doesn’t limit the matchmaking pool either; difficulty is set individually per player and impacts the rewards you receive at the end of the mission. Speaking of: Rewards are not shared, so don’t worry about other players snatching your hard-earned prizes.

An Accessible Experience

In addition to all these great gameplay experiences, Marvel’s Avengers will also feature a slew of accessibility options to help make sure as many gamers as possible can enjoy this superhero adventure. With subtitle support in 15 languages, including Brazilian Portuguese, German, French, and Spanish (LATAM), closed captions, camera sensitivity, button remapping, a variety of difficulty levels, and more. There’s also a few other features that remain in progress, like a high contrast mode UI and subtitle sizing options – expect these at some point after launch. The team considers accessibility incredibly important and sees these features as an ongoing pursuit to continuously make the game more accessible.

Play Today on Xbox One

Marvel’s Avengers is available today on Xbox One, enhanced for Xbox One X, and is available in two editions: Standard Edition, which includes the base game, and Deluxe Edition, which includes the exclusive Obsidian Outfit pack for your Avengers, including Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk, and Ms. Marvel, along with six exclusive Obsidian-themed nameplates to further customize your gameplay cosmetics.

Marvel’s Avengers also uses Smart Delivery technology — buy the game once and play it on Xbox Series X when the console and next-gen version of Marvel’s Avengers are available later this year.
