If you've been looking forward to the Marvel's Avengers beta, you might want to listen up. Confirmed via an IGN First post, the pre-release taster will start next month on Friday 7th August for PlayStation 4 players who have pre-ordered the game. The Crystal Dynamics-developed title will then enter an open beta phase a week later where everyone can join in and sample the upcoming superhero experience.
This beta is said to contain a little bit of everything the game has to offer. Creative director Shaun Escayg said: "We built the beta in such a way that you can experience most of things that you’ll be doing in the full game. That means playing a piece of the original single-player Avengers story campaign, fighting through co-op missions, experiencing hero and world progression, and exploring War Zones and DROP ZONES, a new kind of mission we’ll talk about in the upcoming War Table on July 29. This beta is meaty, but it’s only a small part of the finished game"
As Escayg mentioned, Square Enix has confirmed a second War Table livestream for Wednesday 29th July. This event will detail everything you can play in the Marvel's Avengers beta. Don't forget that if you purchase the game, then you'll be entitled to a free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version. For more information on PS4 to PS5 upgrades, head on through the link.
