Beta Access is also available to Virgin Media customers. As they have thousands of beta codes to give away to their customers (Xbox or PC) when entering online.

The access is only available to gamers who have pre-ordered the game on Xbox or PC, though with Virgin Media’s offering to it’s customers, it now means that anyone can download and play the beta.

Ahead of the beta launching, Virgin Media teamed with with Arekkz Gaming to give Virgin Media customers a run down of what to expect. Check out the video above for more!

Marvel's Avengers

Virgin Media hosted an exclusive Marvel’s Avengers event in London

Marvel's Avengers interview w/Shaun Escayg

We recently attended a very special evening set up by Virginmedia and got the chance to sit down and have a chat with the creative lead of Square Enix's Marvel Studios Avengers game!

Posted by How To Kill an Hour on Monday, 16 December 2019

Virgin Media hosted an exclusive Marvel’s Avengers event in London and we got to go! We even got to give the game a little go for ourselves! We cannot say much, but what we can say is that it is FANTASTIC! It’s going to be incredible, not just for single player lovers. But for co-op fans too! It really is a game that you’ll love playing with friends.

Not only did we get to play the game. We got to sit down with Shaun Escayg, creative director of the Marvel’s Avengers game. He spoke to us all about how his cinema background helped shape the Marvel’s Avengers game. In the story line and how players play as different characters. You’ll see from playing the game very early on that it feels very cinematic. That was down to Shaun! It not only plays like a movie, it feels like one too!

We touched on a lot, but we also touched on Kamala Khan a new character in the Marvel’s Avengers universe who shapes a lot of the story of the game. Both Marcus and Shaun are HUGE fans of the character and we think that you will too! She’s a normal person who becomes an Avenger, a lot of the story revolves around Kamala dealing with her new found powers and how she can harness them for good and fit in with the other Avengers.

Marvel’s Avengers – The Plot

This game has a campaign which is set 5 years after A Day. A Day is a day which celebrates all things Avengers. So, things go ary and the Avengers are now outcasts. The team is required to re-assemble and take on a brand new threat. This story is a brand new and original story separate and not related to the MCU that we all know and love.

You get to take on all of your favourite characters from The Avengers, such as Captain America, Thor and Black Widow. You can play as a single player or as Co-Operatively too. Online play is there as you’d expect and can play in teams of four as various different heroes. Whilst new characters and regions will come post launch and for FREE!

Avengers is coming to PC, PS4, Stadia and Xbox one on 15th May 2020. Also there will be an early beta access and other unique benefits for Playstation players. Benefits which are yet to be revealed!
