Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics are planning high profile DLC add-ons for Marvel’s Avengers.
We already know that Hawkeye will be the first post-launch content, Spider-Man will be a PlayStation exclusive DLC in 2021, and there’s exclusive Virgin, Intel, and Verizon content scheduled for launch.
There’s plenty more to come, though, as confirmed during a Financial Results Briefing this month. According to a translation from VGC Matsuda has said ‘Expectations are high’ for the game’ and that Square ‘hope to build excitement around the title by rolling out powerful add-on content’
The timing of this is interesting as a data mine through the game’s beta files has potentially uncovered future playable characters and they include a full who’s who of classic Marvel characters. Some names you might expect, others you might not.
We won’t post names here for fear of spoilers, but you can get a full list here.
For now, Marvel’s Avengers certainly has upcoming content that has the world talking.
The game launches September 4th on current gen systems, with a next-gen version releasing at console launch.
