Marvel's Avengers is slated for release on September 4, but some people in Australia are getting their hands on the game early. A reader of the website Kotaku Australia said they received a copy of the game on PS4 from Amazon Australia.

It's unclear if this was a one-off early shipping mistake on Amazon's behalf, or if Amazon has begun to ship the game ahead of schedule en masse, or some other issue entirely. Whatever the case, with copies of Marvel's Avengers beginning to appear in the wild, it's a good time to take extra precautions online if you want to avoid spoilers.

While Marvel's Avengers is similar to Destiny in some ways, unlike Bungie's title, Marvel's Avengers does not require an internet connection. That said, there is a one-time internet activation requirement and an 18 GB day-one patch, so those who scored an early copy of the game will seemingly be locked out from playing it.

In other Marvel's Avengers news, dataminers have seemingly unearthed information that suggests the game may feature as many as 15 additional heroes. Alongside Spider-Man, who is a PlayStation exclusive, the list includes Ant-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Stranger, Mockingbird, She-Hulk, and more.
