The Marvel’s Avengers beta may be over, but the game isn’t far from release. September 4th is just under a couple of weeks away. Square Enix knows that eager players are gagging for more, so the publisher has put together some stats about the recent beta.
If you took part in the Avengers beta, you’ll probably have a similar email in your inbox. Square Enix has shared that players collectively smashed over 3.5 billion enemies, played over 28.5 million hours, and less than 5% of players maxed out their character. Meanwhile, the most popular item in the marketplace was the Iron Man Outfit: Chroma Lux, bought more than 640,000 times.
All that in the space of a week? Pray that gamers are never in charge of actual wars; humanity wouldn’t last a month with those kill counts.
Marvel’s Avengers releases on September 4th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There will be a next-gen version for PS5 and Xbox Series X at a later date.
