Marvel's Avengers was originally set to release on Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on 15 May 2020, but it has since been pushed back to 4th September, because developers needed more time to polish the game.
September is now close and developer Crystal Dynamics is ready to give players first chance to play the game, during three scheduled beta weekends in August.
Additionally, they also announced a new Marvel's Avengers War Table live stream, where they will talk about what players can expect during the beta.
Creative Director Shaun Escayg explained that the beta will have a mix of everything - story campaign, co-op missions, hero progression, and exploration in War Zone and Drop Zones.
Drop Zones are a new thing that will be explained during the second Marvel's Avengers War Table live stream, scheduled for 29 July.
"We built the beta in such a way that you can experience most of the things that you’ll be doing in the full game,” Escayg said in the announcement.
“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."
