Update: Dataminer RoboMatter alleges to have discovered the following characters via the title’s recent beta.
- Black Panther
- Captain Marvel
- Captain America
- Doctor Strange
- Kate Bishop
- Scarlet Witch
- War Machine
- Black Widow
- Winter Soldier
As you can see, the list is a fair bit more substantial than the original one, below. What do you make of it all?
Original story: Avengers‘ next heroes will likely be She-Hulk, War Machine and Kate Bishop as a second Hawkeye, if code from the game’s beta is to be believed.
Redditor 6plus4equals52 found references to the three heroes inside Avengers‘ beta code, though other users believe they’re merely titles of nameplates, pieces of customisation used to jazz up a user’s profile.
While it’s unclear if the characters will become playable, it’s certainly possible — in addition to the PlayStation exclusive Spider-Man and post-launch Hawkeye (Clint Barton), developer Crystal Dynamics has promised that more characters are on the way.
Are you happy with another Hulk, another Iron Man and another Hawkeye if this is to believed? If not, who would you like to see instead?
Avengers heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 from 4 September and will release on Xbox Series X and PS5 when the consoles are released. A series of betas take place over this month… and to be honest, we didn’t like what was on offer.
