The recent open beta of Marvel’s Avengers, Crystal Dynamics’ adventure with the Marvel superheroes, became the most downloaded in PlayStation history. The game had several phases, the first one for those who had reserved the game, and allowed to control several of the characters of this action title.

Although we do not know the specific data of the beta on PS4, it is known that between the three platforms it was played by more than 6 million players around the world, who accumulated more than 27 million hours of play. Undoubtedly the license is very successful among players and Square Enix has great expectations for the game, which will continue to receive content as new heroes over time -the first Kate Bishop-.
In the most positive aspects, it offers an interesting and well narrated story, fantastically recreated heroes and fun to control, good bosses and a first level audiovisual section. It’s a modern beat’em up with missions that will take us to linear scenarios where we will have to advance by slapping everything that comes our way.
