Marvel’s Avengers Pre-Order Bonuses Revealed

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel Avengers game is still a ways off. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get into the spirit of things by checking out these pre-order bonuses.

Avengers

The recent trailer for Square Enix/Crystal Dynamic Marvel Avengers showcased little in terms of new content.

However, that isn’t to say that we haven’t been able to track down some of the upcoming game’s features – specifically, what Square Enix is selling by way of pre-order bonuses.

There’s the usual array of special editions available for the game (we’ll cover them momentarily). Regardless of what you pre-order, you’ll gain access to the game’s pre-launch beta.

As noted by Eurogamer, any player that pre-orders Marvel Avengers will gain access to the beta. Assuming you purchase through a participating retailer of course.

How Thor-tful

On top of access to the beta, players will also receive an exclusive nameplate as well as the “Marvel Legacy Outfit Pack”. This additional bundle features the titular characters as they appeared in their earliest comic book appearances. For instance, Iron-Man has his classic Mark-I suit. Jack King’s iconic winged helmet adorns Thor’s noble head. And Hulk looks as though he just blasted right out of Dr Banner’s lab coat.

Square Enix has noted that each of the costumes included in the Legacy pack is inspired by;

“moments from the comics that defined who each Super Hero was as they first embraced their powers to become the icons they are today”.

Those two additional bonuses are available to anybody who pre-orders Avengers. Square Enix also has the standard physical edition available. This includes;

  • (Either) a limited-edition pin set,
  • Patch set,
  • Steelbook or,
  • Digital comic book.

These are dependent upon where you pre-order the game from.

There’s a (Tony) Stark Difference in Platform Choices

Additional PlayStation store exclusive bonuses are available, as well. The standard digital PlayStation 4 edition includes Ms Marvel’s “Talk to the Hand” emote as well as the Hex Pattern Logo dynamic theme. Alternatively, the Deluxe Edition on the PlayStation Store includes;

  • Exclusive Ms Marvel nameplate,
  • 1,000 credits to spend on in-game superhero customisation options, and,
  • 72-hour early access to the game ahead of its launch

Again, these are in conjunction with access to the pre-launch beta. However, for whatever reason makes sense, Square Enix notes that PlayStation 4 players will be granted additional early access to the beta before other platforms.

The (non-digital) special editions are as follows. The Deluxe Edition comes with;

  • Exclusive Obsidian Outfit pack which features a unique costume for each of the Avengers,
  • Six exclusive Obsidian nameplates,
  • One month’s free subscription to Marvel Unlimited online comic book (if you’re a fan of comic books, this is a great service to look into. If you haven’t done so yet, check out Comixology, you won’t be disappointed),
  • 72-hour early access to the game ahead of launch – but not earlier access to the beta
  • All of this for £79.99

These Pre-Orders Are Making Me Angry. You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry

The Collector’s Edition – “Earth’s Mightiest Edition” – features as much tat as you would expect for a staggering £209.99. Included in the Collector’s Edition is;

  • A 12″ statue of Captain America,
  • Mjolnir (Thor’s Hammer) keychain,
  • Hulk bobblehead,
  • Black Widow’s belt buckle,
  • Kamala Khan (the new Ms Marvel) honourary Avenger pin,
  • Iron-Man’s prototype armour blueprint,
  • Commemorative Avengers group photo (in-game image),
  • The Deluxe Edition content,
  • A Steelbook case and,
  • 72-hour early access to the game.

I mean, that’s a lot of stuff, but for well over £200? Plus, if you don’t pre-order it on the PlayStation Store, you’re still not going to be among the first people to play the game anyway? Seems odd, but reasons I suppose.

There’s been a lot of talk online about how the trailers (and now pre-order content) has not gone down well with fans. Square Enix creates lovely and vibrant worlds and Crystal Dynamics romps with Tomb Raider proved they can handle narratives. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how the game performs when it comes out.

Marvel Avengers will launch on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on 4th September (presuming no future delays hold it back even further). Also, do people still pre-order games these days? Especially for one that is seven months away?
