Marvel’s Avengers Beta Was Most Downloaded In PlayStation History
To help hype the new game up for its release, a beta was made available a few weeks before the game’s launch, which came with rewards to incentivize players to try it out. While it’s too early to gauge the game’s overall success, it seems that the Marvel’s Avengers beta on PS4 attracted quite the audience as it was the most downloaded in PlayStation history.
Square Enix recently shared the news regarding the Marvel’s Avengers beta on their official Twitter account. The tweet claims that the beta held the most global downloads for any beta in PlayStation history. No official numbers are given, but presumably, this information comes directly from Sony.

There may have been several factors that helped make the Marvel’s Avengers beta so successful. Aside from this being such a high-profile licensed game based on one of the biggest intellectual properties in all of media right now, the beta also had the benefit of a partnership with another one of the biggest games in the industry. Participation in the beta on PS4 and Xbox One gave Fortnite players free digital items shaped like the Hulk’s and the Hulkbuster’s fists. All these elements helped with the beta, which will surely give the game a boost in sales. This will all be known soon, now that the game is finally out in the public and the sales numbers will be assembling soon.
Marvel’s Avengers is currently available on Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with next-gen version arriving at a later date.
