Game company Square Enix has recently announced that Marvel’s Avengers will be free to play for a limited time.
Players will be able to play the full game for free for a limited time on PlayStation consoles, PC via Steam, and Google Stadia. It will start on July 29 and ends on August 1, 2021. This is to celebrate the start of the summer blockbuster season and mark the permanent launch of the multiple-hero feature in the game. This feature debuted as part of the Tachyon Anomaly event last April 2021 and allowed players to form teams online with more than one of the same Super Hero for any multiplayer mission. This allowed faster and easier matchmaking.
Xbox consoles will have the same all-access feature in the coming months.
Players only need to download the full game from the platform’s digital store. After the free to play period ends, players will need to buy the game in full so that progress and purchases will carry over.
“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,” said Scot Amos, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “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,” added Amos.
Marvel’s Avengers free to play will be available only on PlayStation 4, PS5, PC via Steam, and Stadia this coming weekend.
