Marvel’s Avengers had a rocky debut, thanks to the leak of low-quality offscreen footage, but it’s grown on me since then and – with a delay to September 4th to polish it up – I’m increasingly looking forward to trying it out. Heading out into a Warzone mission with up to three friends, each with our own customized heroes? Sounds like it might be a good time to me.
Square Enix is looking to get fans to lock in pre-orders, with the release of some tempting special editions: Earth’s Mightiest Edition and Deluxe Edition, as well as a PS4-exclusive version.
The Deluxe Edition grants an exclusive Obsidian Outfit pack of six hero outfits, six exclusive Obsidian nameplates, and 72-hour early access to the game. This version, as with the standard version of the game, is available for digital pre-order now in the marketplace of your choice.
The Earth’s Mightiest Edition provides a 12″ Captain America PVC statue, a Hulk Bobblehead, a Mjolnir keychain, the Black Widow’s belt buckle, Iron Man’s prototype armor blueprint, and Kamala Khan’s honorary Avenger pin. Given the physical nature of the extras, obviously this one is going to be found in brick and mortar stores, but I haven’t seen them go live just yet.
Pre-order any edition of the game and you’ll also get guaranteed access to the upcoming beta, an exclusive nameplate, and the Marvel Legacy Outfit pack, which features costumes from the moments each hero first embraced their powers.
There’s also a PS4-exclusive Digital Edition that grants a Ms. Marvel emote, a dynamic theme, an exclusive Ms. Marvel nameplate, and 1,000 credits for customizing your hero. This edition also includes 72 hours early access to the game, and access to the PS4 beta.
Here’s the press release:
