Marvel Avengers will have exclusive content for customers of specific mobile networks, Intel and more, in addition to this month’s PlayStation announcements.
As reported by JayShockblast on YouTube, Verizon Up and Virgin Media customers will be able to redeem exclusive character costumes when the Square Enix title releases next month.
In addition, the publisher will offer another set of exclusive suits as part of an Intel promotion. Finally, those who buy special packs of 5 gums in the US will be able to request a special in-game emotion.
According to a post on Reddit, the skins included in the promotion are as follows:
Publisher Square Enix has previously confirmed that it has a global marketing deal with the PlayStation, which includes early beta access for PS4 players and exclusive time-honored makeup for all characters.
Developer Crystal Dynamics also confirmed this month that Spider-Man would be added to Marvel Avengers list in early 2021, “available at no extra cost to basic game owners, exclusively on PlayStation”.
Asked how Xbox and PC gamers who want to play like Spider-Man should feel, studio head Scott Amos said “they have the opportunity to do so on the PlayStation”.
“I would say that Marvel avengers have a lot of heroes, and with the breadth and breadth of this game and this universe, players will have their hands full of lots to play with,” he said.
“This is an opportunity to celebrate [Spider-Man’s addition] unique to those players [on PlayStation] because of that relationship, but I think there are so many worlds for people to explore, I would not see this as a reason not to embrace that opportunity [to add Spider-Man on PS4 and PS5]. I mean, look at all these things you have to play.
“And for those gamers who absolutely want to play like Spider-Man, you have the opportunity to do so on the PlayStation.”
Marvel’s Avengers is set to release on September 4 for current gene keyboards and PCs. The Avengers is also set to launch on next-generation consoles later this year and owners of the current version of the gene will be able to update at no extra cost.
