The game takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after the events of Captain America: Civil War, and before Avengers: Infinity War. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and his enraged alter ego, The Hulk, battle The Leader, a gamma mutant with a super-genius intellect and telekinetic powers. It turns out The Leader was actually Banner's old friend, Doc Samson, aka, Mr. Blue, from the film The Incredible Hulk. The Hulk and Bruce Banner are forced to stop The Leader's plan to use Hulk's blood to create an army of mutant gamma soldiers and weaponize them, which if he succeeds, could wipe out all of mankind.
The player controls The Hulk. In the game, Hulk is allowed to explore and smash 3 large open-world environments when not engaged in missions. These environments consist of New York City, The Badlands, and the suburban town of Vista Verde. Every single thing in the environment can be destroyed. Cars, lamp posts, trees, certain buildings, buses, all of that can be smashed and obliterated. Hulk also has very versatile movement in the environment. An example of unstoppable movement is being able to run up walls, climb up walls and leap great heights. You can also unlock new attacks and characters via an Upgrades Store by gaining and spending "Destruction Points". These are earned based on how much destruction you cause in the environment and how much you smash during your rampage.
Hulk is also capable of unleashing powerful attacks once he enters a state called, "Critical Mass". This activates once Hulk reaches full health, bringing out another bar below that determines how much power you have to unleash these attacks. Some of them include, Mega Thunderclap, a giant sonic clap that will instantly obliterate anything within the blast radius. There's also Worldbreaker Hulk , a form that you can activate for a limited time, which will temporarily enchance all your attacks enormously, making everything you attack get destroyed in one hit.
Not only can everything in the environment be destroyed. Objects can also be used as weapons. For example, you can use throw vehicles or pieces of debris at your opponents. You can also tear a car in half and use them as boxing gloves. You can even takes pieces of destroyed buildings and use them as bowling balls or surf on a smashed bus, crushing all in your way. You can use lamp posts and trees like baseball bats to smash enemies and ojects with.
When not engaged in story missions, the player is free to do whatever he or she pleases. If the player wants to just go on a rampage and destroy everything in sight, they can do that. If they want to continue the story, it's available to them at any time. If they want to thow people off buildings or throw cars into the ocean, they can. It's all about letting the player feel like they are The Hulk and giving them choice.
You can unlock various characters to play as as you progress through the game. These characters are unlockable by earning the right amount of Destruction Points to buy them in the Upgrades Store, and when you do, will be free to rampage playing as any of these characters. Some of these characters may actually play an important role (Abomination, A-Bomb), while others don't (Rhino, Grey Hulk), and there are also some there for the sake of a laugh (Wreck-it Ralph and Bruce Banner)
