Square Enix opens up Marvel’s Avengers to PlayStation, Steam, and Stadia players for the next three days.
In case you missed the news, Marvel’s Avengers is now free to play as part of a new ‘all-access’ promotion on PC, Stadia, and PlayStation consoles. Square Enix promise a similar free-play period for Xbox users in the coming months.
The complete game is available, including the Reassemble campaign, ongoing Avengers Initiative, and the Hawkeye and Kate Bishop Operations.
As is usual with these types of free play events, all save data, achievements, and trophies will carry over to purchased copies of the game.
Speaking about the promo, Scot Amos, co-head of studio at Crystal Dynamics, says:
“There’s never been a better time to assemble in Marvel’s Avengers. We’re nearing our one-year anniversary, and players who jump in will get eight heroes, tons of single- and multi-player content, ongoing events, and more. In addition, we have the War for Wakanda expansion coming in August, so now is a great opportunity to get started so you’re ready to play as Black Panther and take on Klaw with the rest of the Avengers.”
“We’re working closely with our partners at Xbox to find the right time for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players to get their all-access opportunity and will have more information about that soon.”
If you gave Marvel’s Avengers a miss on release – and you’re not alone on that – now looks like a good time to assemble some friends and give the game a try.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
