Square Enix Announces Marvel's Avengers Free Play Weekend

Square Enix announced a Marvel's Avengers free play weekend for July 29 through August 1, the publisher announced in a press release. The Avengers free play weekend is available for PS4 and PS5 players, PC players via Steam, and also Google Stadia players.

Xbox players miss out this time, but Square Enix promised another opportunity for Microsoft's platform "in the coming months."

"There’s never been a better time to assemble in Marvel’s Avengers," Crystal Dynamics' co-head of studio Scot Amos said. "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."
