The Avengers are headed to the bay.

That’s the premise of a new video game from Marvel, dropping on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia on May 15, 2020.

A first look at “Avengers” debuted at E3 in Los Angeles this week by Square Enix, the publishing company working on the multi-game project with Disney Marvel. The game was initially announced in 2017.

As the preview trailer details, the Avengers — who, it should be noted, do not resemble their MCU counterparts — arrive in San Francisco for A-Day, an event wherein they announce their new headquarters.

Behind the stage, however, the Golden Gate Bridge is suddenly bombed, prompting the Avengers in attendance — Black Widow, Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Captain America (but not Ant-Man!) —to take action.

The Avengers, as it turns out, were played; the bomb and subsequent battle on the Golden Gate Bridge was a ruse to distract them while terrorists stole their helicarrier and devastated the city, killing many in the process.

After taking time apart following the attack, the Avengers then reunite a few years later for a new fight, though it’s currently unclear what will unfold.

The game will be dropped as a single and multi-player game, with players able to step into the shoes of one of the Avengers. As UPI reports, more Avengers will be added to the game in the future.

Watch the trailer above.
