Crystal Dynamics has announced that its superhero action-adventure game, Marvel’s Avengers, is coming to Xbox Game Pass this week. The game will be available for all Xbox Game Pass subscribers (PC, Console, and Cloud) to play beginning this Thursday, September 30.
From Hunter Wolfe, Crystal Dynamics’ community coordinator:
Yep – you read that right. Every player with an Xbox Game Pass membership can experience the full game and all our post-launch Heroes and missions. This includes four story campaigns that showcase one or more Hero’s unique abilities, as well as our Avengers Initiative – our evolving online multiplayer world that lets you and three friends play as any Hero in our roster and embark on global adventures.
Xbox Game Pass members will also have immediate access to our new War for Wakanda expansion, featuring our new playable Hero, Black Panther, and hours of new multiplayer and story content. In War for Wakanda, King T’Challa faces his greatest challenge yet when Ulysses Klaue infiltrates Wakanda to steal its precious Vibranium. T’Challa won’t be able to defeat his enemy alone; he’ll need to team up with the Avengers and confront his distrust of outsiders if he hopes to protect his kingdom.
Crystal Dynamics has noted that the Xbox Game Pass version will not include the eight cosmetic items found in the digital-only Endgame Edition. Marvel fans who want those items will need to purchase the Endgame Edition DLC Upgrade, which is available via the Xbox Store and the game’s in-game marketplace.
