Marvel's Avengers will be getting multi-stage betas, starting with a preorder phase on August 7 available to those who’ve already secured themselves a copy on each platform. After a week’s time, that’ll expand into a full open beta. PS4 players will get a week’s headstart on both fronts. Here are how all the Marvel's Avengers beta dates will line up:

  • August 7: PS4 closed beta begins (preorders only)
  • August 14: PS4 open beta begins. Xbox and PC closed beta begins (preorders only)
  • August 21: Xbox and PC open beta begins

That means those who want to get stuck in as early as possible will need to preorder a copy of Marvel’s Avengers on PS4. If you don’t mind the wait, then August 21 will see players on any platform able to give the beta a try before they decide on their purchase.

There’s also a second War Table stream taking place on July 29. Those keen for the beta would do well to tune into that, as we it expect to deliver more information regarding the content players will get to test out.
