The designers behind Marvel’s Avengers video game are refusing to change the heroes’ costumes, despite mass fan backlash.
A trailer for the Square Enix game debuted at E3 2019 last week but attracted criticism online surrounding the outfits of the five featured Avengers, which fans slammed for being “bulky”.
Other controversial aspects of the design include Captain America’s riot-gear inspired look and Thor’s electronic attire — but, sorry guys, because it looks like you’re stuck with it.
Speaking recently, Crystal Dynamics lead creative director Shaun Escayg revealed that there are “currently no plans” to change or make alterations to any of the costumes in the game.
“We are always listening to, and welcome feedback from our community. There are currently no plans to change our character designs,” Escayg told IGN.
“The trailer is showing pre-alpha gameplay footage, which means the level of detail and overall polish of the character models will absolutely continue to improve as we get closer to launch.”
The Marvels Avengers game will be released in May next year, and will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
If you can tolerate the current costumes, of course.
Marvel’s Avengers will release on Xbox One, PS4, Google Stadia and PC on May 15, 2020.
