Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have revealed more details about the upcoming beta for Marvel’s Avengers.

We won’t lie. We’re having trouble assembling enthusiasm for Crystal Dynamics’ upcoming Avengers game. It’s a great franchise and a studio with an impressive track record, but so far the game looks less than then sum of its parts. We’ll have another opportunity to revise that opinion when the game’s beta program begins on August 7.

As shown in the latest Marvel’s Avengers War Table stream, the beta includes a selection of single-player missions, plus some team missions that can be played solo with AI buddies, or co-op with up to four players.


The beta begins with a chance to play the Golden Gate demo sequence revealed at E3 2019. In another single-player mission, Kamala Khan and Hulk have to infiltrate an AIM base in American Pacific Northwest, followed by an underground bunker in the chilly wilderness of Russia.

With a couple of solo missions completed, players can then go online and play as Kamala Khan, Iron Man, Hulk, or Black Widow. There will be a chance to sample some of the game’s HARM room challenges, and War Zone and Drop Zone missions. In total there are twenty single-player and co-op missions available.

Speaking about the beta, Scot Amos, co-head of Crystal Dynamics, says:

“We really want to give fans an in-depth look at what they can expect when they get their hands on the beta starting on August 7th. I couldn’t be more proud of the work the team has done getting Marvel’s Avengers ready for players, and can’t wait to see their reactions.”
