In an interview with Eurogamer, Lead Designer Philippe Therien talked about the game, including the story, how co-cop will work and the type of game it’ll be. When asked if it was open world, he was blunt in saying it was not.

“The game isn’t open world, there’s way too many different places to explore for that to have made sense. We’re looking at having different kinds of regions where you can go from place to place. The Avengers are effective worldwide and we wanted to show that.”

Story wise I like this direction, but it would had been fun free roaming the city with your co-op buddies.

Idk the limited set piece focus in the trailer with the bridge seemed to offer some decent variety for enemy take down depending on who is playing who.

I kind of liked it in that regard.

Open world is one of the worst buzz phrases of this gen and most games miss the mark with them by a lot.
