Just a few days ago, Square Enix unveiled Marvel’s Avengers for the first time, and unfortunately for the publisher — and for developer Crystal Dynamics — the fans didn’t exactly love what they saw in terms of the Marvel’s Avengers game character design.
Now, while Crystal Dynamics have said that they’re listening to all the player feedback, that doesn’t mean they’ll change the character designs. Speaking to IGN, Crystal Dynamics Lead Creative Director Shaun Escayg mentioned that even with the fan criticism, the studio won’t be changing the character designs, though there will be more polish to them.
We are always listening to, and welcome feedback from our community. There are currently no plans to change our character designs. 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.
Of course, it’s understandable that most gamers were expecting the characters to look like their MCU counterparts. But even if you take that out of the equation, the character designs we have so far don’t necessarily look good even from a comics perspective. Just my personal opinion, but they look like the budget Avengers or something, and I’m hope further customization will take out that feeling.
Are you happy with the character designs? Are gamers expecting too much of it to be like the MCU? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
