Aren't we assembled already?

The season of announcements for announcements continues with an Avengers announcement for more announcements. Marvel's Avengers is just around the corner in early September but hold your super horses they've got another War Table livestream for you before that. Crystal Dynamics' third announcements reel on September 1st will feature hot tips for starting with your most heroic foot forward and detail some more of their free content coming after A-Day.

This time around, Crystal Dynamics say that their livestream "will give all the information players need to get started on Day One of the game’s release. Special attention will be paid to the game’s progression system, hints and tips for taking on the game’s more than 50 different types of enemies, as well as additional details about Marvel’s Avengers’ high-level content."

In addition, they'll be talking more about the Avengers Initiative that was partially explained during the July War Table. After you've finished the main story—the Reassemble Campaign—you'll begin on the Avengers Initiative, which is basically the catchy name that CD have given to their plans for never-ending content updates to this superhero game as a service.
