MARVEL'S AVENGERS Beta Starts Next Month; New Details on Crystal Dynamics’ Game Will Be Shared Soon
Marvel's Avengers will arrive in September, but Square Enix is planning to give you a chance to play the highly anticipated title before its launch day, during the long-awaited open beta that will begin next month.
Thankfully, those who would like to learn more about the core game mechanics and unique features of Crystal Dynamics' next big thing before joining the upcoming round of testing should be happy to hear that another Marvel's Avengers–focused digital event will take place on Wednesday, July 29th at 10am PT.
As a reminder, the first War Table aired last month, revealing plenty of new details on Marvel's Avengers — including confirmation that the unstoppable MODOK and the Kree are the cross-gen title's main villains.
Take a closer look at the official breakdown of when you will be able to play the Marvel's Avengers beta:
- August 7-9: PlayStation Advantage Closed BETA: The first BETA weekend will be available for those who have pre-ordered Marvel’s Avengers on PlayStation 4. Pre-load will be available on August 6.
- August 14-16: PlayStation Advantage Open BETA & Xbox/PC Closed BETA: The second BETA weekend will be open to the entire PS4 community as part of our PlayStation Advantage partnership. Additionally, those of you who have pre-ordered Marvel’s Avengers on Xbox or PC will be able to jump in and play. Pre-load will be available on August 13.
- August 21: Open BETA for All: August 21 – 23 will give all fans across all platforms a chance to jump in and play the Marvel’s Avengers BETA! Pre-load will be available on August 20.
Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Marvel's Avengers will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on September 4, 2020; coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X this holiday season.
