Just over two weeks ago, developer Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal alongside publisher Square Enix announced that the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers is receiving an playable beta at the start of August. In that, the playtests were disclosed to begin uniquely on PlayStation 4 starting August 2nd followed the week after with betas for Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
Now during this week’s Wartable livestream for the September-scheduled title, the teams elaborate more on the game discussing the contents of the previously announced betas alongside combing out what will be shipping to Marvel’s Avengers following the game’s release.
Looking ahead, Marvel’s Avengers will be receiving the addition of Hawkeye later on as an add-on for the base game, Square Enix confirms. You can watch the teaser trailer in the video below:
“Our team revisited their favorite comic arc at the beginning of any hero concept process, including Writer Matt Fraction and Artist David Aja’s ‘My Life as A Weapon,’” Crystal Dynamics shares in a blog post. “Hawkeye has his own in-depth story mission chain, and it’s unique from the main campaign because it can be played either co-op or solo, whichever you prefer. He’ll also bring a new villain with him, which you’ll learn about in the future along with other surprises!”
Elaborating more on the matters of the coming beta sessions, Crystal Dynamics discloses that progress between each session that is being held next month will carry over to the next playtest. That includes in-game cosmetics and your advancements when exploring and fighting in the game’s world. However, when the full game arrives in September, you will have to re-earn your belongings.
Currently, neither Crystal Dynamics nor Square Enix spared details on the arrival for Hawkeye to Marvel’s Avengers. Even more, a price tag for the added Avengers was not disclosed either at the time of reporting.
