Crystal Dynamics details its sizeable Marvel’s Avengers beta, coming in August

Crystal Dynamics has shared details of its substantial Marvel’s Avengers beta – which will be playable across three weekends next month, starting on 7th August – and has offered a glimpse of the game’s first post-launch hero, Hawkeye, in its latest developer video.

There looks to be a lot for players to sink their teeth into come August’s beta, starting with the Golden Gate demo sequence shown previously. This 25-minute chunk of gameplay serves as an introduction to combat and traversal – giving players a chance to test out various hero-specific combos, heroics, and moves – and culminates with a boss battle against Taskmaster.

With that out the way, the beta will then open up to offer two single-player Hero stages, and, later, a selection of missions that can be played either solo or co-operatively. One Hero mission sees Kamala Khan (AKA Ms. Marvel) and Hulk travelling to the dense forests of the American Pacific North-West, where players get a taste of Hulk’s destructive capabilities, and the second unfolds in the frozen Russian tundra, where an encounter with Abomination awaits.
