Despite getting a hefty delay from May to September, Marvel’s Avengers’ marketing cycle isn’t slowing down. Today, we got a wealth of new info ranging from the official box art, a new special edition, a trailer, and even the achievements leaked.
Square Enix released a brand new trailer that showcases some gameplay footage of Earth’s Mightiest Hero kicking ass. The likes of Ms. Marvel, Hulk, Black Widow, and more all get a chance to shine in this brief trailer that helps put everyone’s diverse set of powers front and center.
On top of that, we have a new edition and a list of pre-order bonuses. The newly revealed Deluxe Edition will let players pick up the game 72 hours before its official worldwide release and get some extra in-game goodies such as different outfits and more. All players who pre-order will get the “Marvel Legacy Outfit Pack” which grants access to iconic hero outfits such as Iron Man’s first ever, bulky silver suit.
Pre-ordering also guarantees you get access to the beta which will come sometime before the game releases, PS4 players will get in even earlier no matter what edition they pre-order.
Finally, Marvel’s Avengers’ achievements have leaked months in advance and while it’s not terribly interesting, it reveals a few things. We’re not going to disclose the specifics here but we do find out what appears to be the main villain and/or final boss and get some other basic plot beats. View the list at your own discretion as there are some big spoilers toward the bottom of the list.
One other thing to note is that there appear to be loot boxes called “Strongboxes”. Whether they’re purchasable via microtransactions remain to be seen but there is an achievement for opening 100 of them.
Marvel’s Avengers will release on Xbox One, PS4, Google Stadia, and PC on September 4th, 2020.
