Marvel's Avengers Pre-Orders Include Early Beta Access
Play the beta first on PlayStation 4.
While Marvel's Avengers has been pushed back a few months, eager fans can pre-order the third-person action-adventure game right now. Doing so nets you 72-hour early access to the game when it launches in September on Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, as well as "guaranteed access" to the beta.
Marvel's Avengers is slated to launch on September 4, but you can play the game as early as September 1 when you pre-order either the Deluxe or Earth's Mightiest editions. For reserving any edition of the game, though, you'll be let into the currently undated beta. PS4 players can play the beta first when they pre-order any edition.
In addition to gaining beta access for pre-ordering Marvel's Avengers, you also get an assortment of goodies. This includes the Marvel Legacy pack (a set of six exclusive skins) and a nameplate. A few retailers are handing out pre-order bonuses of their own, such as Best Buy rewarding My Best Buy members with a $10 credit for pre-ordering there.
Marvel's Avengers was originally scheduled to launch this May before getting delayed several months. Co-developer Crystal Dynamics said the extra time should help it "deliver the ultimate Avengers gaming experience."
Marvel's Avengers Game News
Since its reveal at E3 2019, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal (Shadow of the Tomb Raider) have been tinkering with Marvel's Avengers. The game has undergone a visual redesign and clarified its structure prior to the delay. We got out hands on the game in August 2019 and called it an amalgam of Destiny and Marvel's Spider-Man.
