Marvel’s Avengers will be in players hands in but a week and a bit, but publisher Square-Enix is already looking to hype up whatever follows after the credits roll in yet another War Table event, scheduled for September 1st. They’ve already announced via their second pre-beta presentation that Hawkeye will be coming shortly after launch, complete with new story content that will explain why he’s not present during the main campaign, and the early September showcase will not only serve as a helpful primer for Marvel’s Avengers release three days afterwards, but it will also hint at what’s next too. From Square-Enix:
“On September 1, the third Marvel’s Avengers “War Table” will give all the information players need to get started on Day One of the game’s release. Special attention will be paid to the game’s progression system, hints and tips for taking on the game’s more than 50 different types of enemies, as well as additional details about Marvel’s Avengers‘ high-level content.
The “War Table” will also dive deeper into the Avengers Initiative, where players hone their heroes to their ultimate versions after they finish the game’s Reassemble story campaign, as well as the game’s first post-launch content season. Minds will be blown and wishes granted as some of the game’s extensive slate of additional heroes, villains, missions, regions, and gameplay modes are unveiled, all of which will be made available at no additional cost.
In addition, fans can anticipate several exclusive new videos as well as insight about the design and creation of Marvel’s Avengers. Attentive viewers may also spot hidden details to whet their appetite for future content and announcements.”
Marvel’s Avengers arrives September 4th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC with next-gen versions to follow.
