New Avengers Trailer Touts Advantages of Playing on PlayStation

Today, Sony uploaded a trailer for Marvel's Avengers to their YouTube channel boasting some of the advantages that come with playing the game on PlayStation 4.

Crystal Dynamics’ upcoming game, Marvel‘s Avengers, has seen a lot of support from Sony in the past week or so. Sony and Crystal Dynamics announced that Spider-Man would be coming to the game exclusively on PlayStation as downloadable content following the game’s rapidly approaching launch in September.

And today, Sony uploaded a trailer for the upcoming superhero crossover to their YouTube channel boasting some of the advantages that come with playing the game on PS4 and later PS5.

One such “PlayStation Advantage” includes early access to the closed beta, which allows players who preordered the game to play the closed beta a week before people who preordered on other platforms. Another one of the trailer’s talking points is “exclusive community challenges,” which haven’t been given many hard details, but considering we’ve seen many games like this, it’s certain to be comparable to other challenges already offered in the game.

Along with early access to the beta, Crystal Dynamics is also offering PlayStation users early access to the game’s legendary outfits. While the trailer shows a variety of different outfits for the team of heroes, there’s no indication about how many of the game’s outfits will be accessible early, or for how long they’ll be exclusive to PlayStation.

Among the advantages of playing the game on PS4 that were mentioned in the trailer, Sony reiterated that Spider-Man would be in the game and that he’d only be playable on PlayStation. This feels particularly tone-deaf for the market leader, especially considering the announcement that the web-slinger would be exclusive to their platform was met with widespread disappointment and people calling the move anti-consumer.

Aside from its 2021 release date, neither Sony nor Crystal Dynamics have given any information on what exactly the Spider-Man DLC will entail or how much it will cost.
