Marvel’s Avengers is free to play until August 1 on Steam or Stadia as part of a summer blockbuster celebration event. Players can embark on a number of activities with matchmaking in various multiplayer missions. The event precedes the War for Wakanda expansion featuring the return of the Black Panther coming later in August. The current all-access period is only for PC and PlayStation owners, but Square Enix is planning one for Xbox owners as well.

There’s never been a better time to assemble in Marvel’s Avengers. We’re nearing our one-year anniversary, and players who jump in will get eight heroes, tons of single- and multi-player content, ongoing events, and more…In addition, we have the War for Wakanda expansion coming in August, so now is a great opportunity to get started so you’re ready to play as Black Panther and take on Klaw with the rest of the Avengers. – Scot Amos, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
