Marvel's Avengers closed beta access and requirements explained: How to get a Marvel's Avengers beta code
For the opening weekends on each respective platform, you need to have a beta code to access Marvel's Avengers.
You can get a Marvel's Avengers beta code by pre-ordering any edition - either digitally or through select retailers.
Once you have a code from your participating retailer's receipt or email, enter it into the Marvel's Avengers beta code redemption site, and select the platform of your choice.
If you don't pre-order, however, you'll still get Marvel's Avengers beta access by:
- Being a Virgin Media (UK) or Verizon (US) customer
- Waiting until an open beta weekend date for your platform
Also, regardless of your platform and when you participate, you need:
- A Square Enix Member's account - so having one set up and ready to go ahead of time (is free) might save you some time for when it arrives.
- A one-time online access to unlock the single-player campaign content, and online access for multiplayer content.
Everything else you need to know about the Marvel Avenger's beta
Regardless of the Marvel's Avengers weekend you're playing, the beta will offer the following:
- Single-player content from the campaign
- Co-op War Zone and Drop Zone missions (playable online with others on the same platform)
- HARM challenge rooms
- Hero and world progression, allowing you to try out the experience system up to Hero Level 15 and Power Level 45
Though progress and levelling will carry over from weekend to weekend, they will not carry over to the full game. That said, there are several rewards on offer to make it worth your while...
Marvel's Avengers beta rewards and unlocks
Though progress won't carry through from the beta to full release, there are several rewards up for grabs:

There's plenty to get stuck into, regardless of when you're able to play. Enjoy!
