Marvel's Avengers' beta testing period will continue this weekend with the beta soon to be expanded to users on the Xbox One and PC platforms so long as they've pre-ordered the game. If you're playing on the PC, you'll be playing through Steam from August 14th to August 16th if you pre-ordered and will be waiting until August 21st to play if you didn't. Ahead of the beta's arrival on those platforms, Square Enix shared the specs for the PC version of the game and features the PC version will take advantage of on that platform.
Features unique to the PC version include an optional high-res texture pack that comes in at 30GB for those who want a better visual experience. Ultra-wide and multi-monitor setups will also be supported, and users can unlock their framerate entirely if their systems can handle the setting. PC players will also be able to use controllers with the game if they want, but if you choose to stick with the mouse and keyboard inputs, you can configure the controls to your liking.
But all of that only does players any good if their PCs can even run the game in the first place. To clue players in ahead of time on whether their devices can handle the game or not, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics shared the specs below that show the minimum and recommended requirements for playing Marvel's Avengers.

If you're just now hopping into the Marvel's Avengers beta for the first time this weekend, you can check out our impressions on the test to get a feel of what it'll be like.
