Back in June, Square Enix showed off Marvel’s Avengers during their debut Marvel’s Avengers War Table livestream. During the stream, we got to get a closer look at Thor gameplay, details on the primary villain, and much more. Today, Square Enix hosted their second War Table livestream, revealing details about the game’s upcoming beta content.
July War Table
The latest War Table presentation showcased several new single-player missions, along with missions that support both solo play and co-op for up to four players. These missions will be available during the game’s beta, which begins in August. One of the beta missions shown during today’s War Table followed Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan, who teams up with Hulk to infiltrate an AIM base. The two make their way through the Russian tundra to an underground lair to uncover vital information regarding SHIELD.
“We really want to give fans an in-depth look at what they can expect when they get their hands on the beta starting on August 7th,” said Scot Amos, Co-Head of Crystal Dynamics. “I couldn’t be more proud of the work the team has done getting Marvel’s Avengers ready for players, and can’t wait to see their reactions.”
The second War Table livestream event also revealed a special surprise for Marvel fans who also play Fortnite. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players have a chance to earn the exclusive Hulk Smashers Pickaxe and Hulkbuster style in Fortnite for participating in the Marvel’s Avengers beta. To get the special items in Fortnite, players must link their Square Enix Members and Epic Games accounts and complete the beta’s three HARM-room challenges.
Today’s Marvel’s Avengers War Table concluded with a special sneak peek at one of the first heroes being added for free at launch: Clint Barton’s Hawkeye. You can check out Hawkeye near the end of the livestream video above.
The beta program for Marvel’s Avengers will begin on August 7. Those who pre-ordered the game are among the first to gain access to the beta. Two open beta weekends will follow the initial closed beta weekend. The dates for the Marvel’s Avengers beta are a bit convoluted, so we suggest reviewing the beta dates recap page on the official website to find out when you can play the beta.
Marvel’s Avengers will release on September 4 for PS4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC. The game will also launch on Xbox One X and PS5 when the consoles arrive later this year.
