Marvel's Avengers game is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and here's everything you need to know about Sony's exclusive content and how to pre-order.
The highlight of Square Enix's E3 2019 showcase was definitely Marvel's Avengers game and the fact us true believers can now pre-order it for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But does prematurely buying a copy guarantee any bonuses, and what is the exclusive content for Sony gamers?
Marvel's Avengers game is developed by Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider) and Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex: Human Revolution), and it includes an uncanny valley Avengers ensemble starring Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, and the Incredible Hulk.
Square Enix showed very little gameplay, but the A-Day trailer emphasised an interesting enough narrative where the Avengers are blamed for a villain-caused disaster in San Francisco.

How to pre-order Marvel's Avengers game
Although I never recommend pre-ordering video games, it's impossible for the ugly wheel to ever be broken so feel free to prematurely buy Marvel's Avengers if you can't wait to see proper gameplay and coverage.

In addition to PS4 and Xbox One, Marvel's Avengers will also launch on PC and Google Stadia (you can see if your internet connection is good enough for Stadia by clicking here).
Are there any pre-order bonuses and what is the PS4 exclusive content?
Square Enix hasn't announced any pre-order bonuses other than beta access, but they did conclude their Avengers game presentation by teasing exclusive content for the PS4.
Aside from early beta access, Square Enix hasn't yet indulged what PlayStation 4 gamers will be generously treated to.
Exclusive content most of the time is pointless cosmetics, weapons, and early/unique upgrades, but - with this being the Avengers - there'll no doubt be an angry community if only Sony gamers can acquire specific costumes or weapons for Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, or the Hulk.
Console exclusive content isn't something that should be celebrated or treated as necessary, but it's unfortunately a part of the industry that will likely never go away.
Marvel's Avengers launches for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia in May, 2020.
