Next month, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics will conduct several beta testing phases for Marvel’s Avengers.
Between August 7th and 9th, those who pre-order the game on the PlayStation 4 platform will be able to participate in a closed beta. Then, between August 14th and 16th, all PlayStation 4 owners will be able to participate in a second beta session.
Those who preorder on Xbox One and PC will be able to participate in a closed beta session between August 14th and 16th. A final open beta phase will be conducted on August 21st through 23rd for all platforms.
One thing to note: the beta will require you to have a Square Enix Members account and will reward you with an in-game nameplate for Thor once the retail version releases.
Square Enix will also be holding a second ‘War Table’ presentation to explain more of the game’s features and content — you can check out the first presentation here.
Marvel’s Avengers will release on September 4th, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. A next-generation version will come to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and will let you upgrade for free.
