A lot of people wanted to try out Marvel’s Avengers before buying it. According to Square Enix, the Marvel’s Avengers beta is the most downloaded PlayStation beta in the history of the console. In addition, this means it beat all past Call of Duty games and the 2014 Destiny beta.
Square Enix did not share any major details on the numbers but according to a tweet, the test was globally the most-downloaded game in PlayStation history.
A heroic achievement — the Marvel’s Avengers Beta was globally the most-downloaded beta in PlayStation history. Congrats to our team @CrystalDynamics!#EmbraceYourPowers on September 4 https://t.co/UVFJmEgcrq pic.twitter.com/lAMniXczWg

Last week, Square Enix shared some interesting stats about the beta across all three platforms. 28.5 million hours of gameplay was recorded and players killed over 3.5 billion enemies over the three beta weekends.
We don’t how well the beta’s popularity will carry over to the main game. Marvel’s Avengers is already out for certain gamers who pre-ordered the Deluxe, and Collector’s Edition of the game. The official launch is on 4 September 2020 for everyone else. It will be interesting to see how the game grows over the next few months with new heroes and missions. Crystal Dynamics already announced three new heroes including Hawkeye, the PlayStation exclusive hero Spider-Man, and Kate Bishop. Of which Kate arrives next month followed by Hawkeye.
Earlier this week a special end-game War Table took place detailing the game’s end-game grind. Catch up on it down below.
