Marvel Games, Square Enix, and Crystal Dynamics reconvened yesterday for the July Marvel’s Avengers WAR TABLE stream, where they gave fans a breakdown of the campaign content, War Zones, and HARM Challenge Rooms players will take on during the August BETA weekends kicking off on August 7.

What you can expect in the Marvel’s Avengers Beta:
- Comprehensive hands-on experience of the game
- Single-player missions from the original campaign
- Hero and world progress
- HARM Challenge Rooms
Marvel’s Avengers’ Holographic Augmented Reality Machine rooms are virtual training simulators that let players take on increasingly difficult enemies in co-op with up to four players, or with your AI Avengers team.
Unlock three HARM challenge rooms, aka Excursions when chained together in the full game, players will earn a Nameplate that carries over to the full retail version of the game.
- Co-Op War Zones
Once the operational War Table is unlocked in Beta, players will have the option to tackle a series of War Zone and Drop Zone missions with friends or their AI Avengers team. Learn more about War Zones over at the PlayStation Blog. Players can expect five Beta War Zones to play!
Drop Zones are smaller, focused War Zones that are ideal for earning gear or leveling up heroes. The Beta will include five Drop Zones.
POST-LAUNCH CLINT BARTON/HAWKEYE
Marvel fans have been clamoring for the addition of Hawkeye to the Hero roster, and we’re beyond excited to share that Clint Barton is picking up his bow and arrow and reassembling with the Avengers in the post-launch campaign as part of the Avengers Initiative.
Players who purchase Marvel’s Avengers will get access to Clint Barton’s Hawkeye at no additional cost.
Hawkeye will have his own in-depth, original story mission chain that’s inspired by Matt Fraction and David Aja’s HAWKEYE run. Whether players decide to play Hawkeye co-op or solo, you can expect a brand new villain along with alternative outfits, such as the Fraction/Aja iteration of Clint Barton above!
MARVEL’S AVENGERS + FORTNITE
Who doesn’t love in-game rewards!?!
PS4 and Xbox One players who link their Square Enix Members and Epic Games accounts and complete the Marvel’s Avengers Beta’s three HARM-room challenges will earn the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe with bonus Hulkbuster style in Fortnite!
We can’t wait for fans everywhere to get their hands on Marvel’s Avengers Beta starting next week!
