Today's War Table event for Marvel's Avengers started off by giving us full details on the upcoming beta, and it will be pretty sizable. Crystal Dynamics revealed that the beta will kick off with the game's opening segment on the Golden Gate Bridge in its entirety, but then things will open up an allow players to take on co-op Warzones, Dropzone missions, and HARM rooms, and you'll be able to play as four different heroes after you finish the single-player opening portion. The beta features 25 minutes of gameplay, and once you finish the single-player you'll have access to Black Widow, Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Iron Man, but that's not all.
You'll also get access to the Helicarrier and Jarvis, and the latter will be a focal point of a story mission involving Hulk and Ms. Marvel. You'll also have access to 3 pages of opening skill trees for each character, followed by 5 Warzones to play in after finishing the first part of the beta.
You'll find plenty of gear to customize your heroes with so that you can get a taste of the full Warzone experience, and not only that, but those who play the beta will get access to some sweet Fortnite gear.
