Marvel's Avengers Pre-Order Guide: All Retailer Bonuses, Editions, And Bundles

Avengers, reassemble.

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics' video game take on Marvel's Avengers will finally release this fall. Initially slated to release May 15, the game is now set to arrive on September 4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can pre-order Marvel's Avengers now to receive guaranteed access to the game's beta and a three-day head start if you pre-order the special editions. Depending on which major retailer you get it from, you can also receive a different additional bonus.

This upcoming Avengers game will give fans the chance to play as their favorite heroes and revisit other familiar characters and settings from the Marvel universe. You'll take on missions as some of the most popular Marvel superheroes: Thor, Black Widow, Iron Man, Hulk, and Captain America. The star of the game, however, is Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel), who brings the Avengers back together after a disastrous event at the start of the game. Kamala is an Inhuman who discovers she has developed shapeshifting abilities that let her grow in size and strength, adding a unique power to the group of heroes. Depending on which hero you play as, Marvel's Avengers has a wide range of gameplay options available.

In addition to its solo campaign, Marvel's Avengers will include online co-op for up to four players. There will also be various character customization options. For more on the game, check out everything we know about Marvel's Avengers.

Given the huge success of Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4, there's an unsurprisingly high level of excitement about Marvel's Avengers. If you're already certain it's a day-one purchase for you, here's what you need to know to pre-order Marvel's Avengers.

Anyone who pre-orders Marvel's Avengers will gain access to the game's beta, and those who pre-order on PS4 will get exclusive first access.

On top of beta access, anyone who pre-orders will receive a Marvel Legacy Outfit pack and an exclusive nameplate.

Digital pre-orders of Marvel's Avengers through the PlayStation Store will include some additional bonuses: a Ms. Marvel "Talk to the Hand" emote and the Marvel's Avengers Hex Pattern Logo dynamic theme.
