Marvel’s Avengers July War Table news: Beta content details! Hawkeye joins the game!

If you were skeptic about Square Enix’s game Marvel’s Avengers, maybe this new trailer will convince you.

Marvel's Avengers Beta to Offer Over 20 Missions, Hawkeye DLC Post ...

Yesterday on July 29th, Square Enix did a livestream for a second War Table news showcasing the upcoming Beta in August. In my previous article about Avengers, a beta is coming to digital stores for gamers who pre-ordered the game or others who didn’t.

  • Aug 7th: PS4 (Pre-orders only)
  • Aug 14th: Xbox and PC (Pre-orders only). PS4 (Open Beta)
  • Aug 21st: Open Beta for all systems.

In the trailer, gamers will be able to download and access the game’s beta and experience the chance to play Avengers before it comes out on September 4th. According to the trailer, players will be able to play a few mission stages from the game’s story such as having the opportunity to fight Abomination. The missions available will be for anyone who prefers solo and co-op gaming. Players will only be able to play as four confirmed characters such Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow and Kamela Khan (Ms. Marvel). Also revealed, players will have full access to unleash Iron Man’s ultimate weapon, the Hulkbuster. Teased in the first War Table trailer, the Hulkbuster is an ultimate attack for Iron Man and this gives players the ability to don the heavy hulkish machine and smash your way through enemies. The Hulkbuster is available in the beta.


Hawkeye Joins 'Marvel's Avengers' in First Look at Post-Launch Content

Released on the same day, Square Enix revealed that a new character will be joining the game as a post release. Avengers marksman Hawkeye is will be joining the game. According to IGN, Hawkeye will be free of charge and he will have his own set of missions in the story. He will be available for players for solo and co-op missions. Unlike the other Avengers characters that resemble the movie actors, Clint Barton appearance, according to the trailer, is based on the a collaboration with Matt Fraction-David Aja from the comic “My Life as a Weapon” Variant #1. To anyone that wanted Hawkeye in the game, you can finally get the chance to play as him; he will be free.

What do you think about the updates and the beta? Who do you want to play as in this game?

90’s Tag – This generation is all that!

I was tagged by Fred from his blog called This is my place. I was born in the 90s and as a kid, I thought life was simple. I was a kid who spent hours on cartoons and games and going to elementary school. All I cared about was fun and nothing much going on in the world.

I want to thank Mike Kelly for donating thru my Ko-fi. If you want to show your support, click on the link below.

Favorite TV Show

Kenan & Kel (TV Series 1996–2000) - IMDb The Amanda Show: Season 3 (2 Discs): Movies & TV

Before we had shows like iCarly, Victorious and Henry Danger, we had some funny shows growing up. Before Drake and Josh, we had two teens named Kenan and Kel. These funny actors also appeared in the movie Good Burger. Another weird, but funny show was The Amanda Show. Hosted by Amanda Bynes, we had teens perform funny skits such as a parody of Judge Judy and fake infomercials about selling pants that cook popcorn and buying a homework in a pseudo pizza delivery service. Before we had Tom Kenny acting as Patchy the Pirate trying to meet his hero SpongeBob (also voiced by Ton Kenny), we had Amanda acting as an obsessed fan named Penelope and trying to meet Amanda Bynes (herself).

Favorite 90s song

Anytime I heard the Indigo League of Pokemon opening song, I just jump around in excitement. As a kid, I wanted to be a Pokemon trainer like Ash and have my own Pikachu and go on adventures. This song resonates within me and this series was a gateway to watching anime. At this time, I saw this and believed it was a cartoon.

Favorite commercial

As a kid in a tender age, I love playing with my N64 and playing hours of Mario Party and Super Mario 64. When I saw this commercial of Super Smash Bros 64, I thought it was funny idea to have all these characters come together and fight. I always like picking Mario or Pikachu and beating up the other characters. This was my favorite game growing up and this game made me enjoy the other Smash games from the series (excluding Smash 4 for Wii U/3DS since I never owned any of those platforms).

*NSYNC or Backstreet Boys?

I hardly paid attention to these two bands, but I vaguely remember the song Bye Bye Bye sung by *NSYNC.

Favorite Music Artist?

I didn’t have any favorites.

What did I collect?

I collected the old Pokemon cards. I didn’t know how to play them, but I did like having them.

The Retro 90s Style We Loved In Pokemon TCG Is Back!

How many Tamagotchis did you go thru?

I don’t think I ever had my own friend. I think the only I got was a kids meal toy of them.

Favorite video game and console?

I like playing both the Nintendo 64 and the Playstation 1. On the N64, I would play Super Mario 64 and on the PS1, it was both the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon series.

Favorite cereal toy, 90s crush growing up? Favorite Disney Channel movie?

I don’t remember my favorite cereal toy, but I do remember eating Trix, Cookie Crips and Fruit Loops. I didn’t have a crush on anyone, not I had a favorite Disney Channel movie.

Favorite cartoon show?

Likewise to Fred’s answer, this is a tough question. I used to watch Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain; I used to watch Tiny Toons as well. The majority of the time, it was the 90s Nickelodeon cartoons like Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, Doug, and Hey Arndold.

Weirdest fashion trend?

I never paid attention to fashion. I was just a kid at that time.

Favorite Toy?

I really enjoyed my Woody doll from Toy Story. I really loved the movie.

Disney, Nick, or Cartoon Network?

Disney came first because I always watched the movies like The Lion King, Aladdin and Snow White. My love of animation came from Disney. Nick came along much later and I used to watch cartoons on the old TV in the living room, Cartoon Network didn’t appear in my life until much later in elementary school. Once I got into CN, I watched Powerpuff Girls, Ed, Edd’n Eddy and Johnny Bravo.

Early morning/weekend shows would you watch?

Anyone remember the Kids WB? I probably watched shows like Batman Beyond, Tiny Toons and Animaniacs.

Favorite McDonald’s Happy Meal toy? What would you watch when you got home from school?

There is one toy I still have and it’s my treasure. I have a Pokemon keychain of Sandslash from Burger King. I used to carry it around when I was in elementary school, high school and college.

I got the Sandslash Pokemon on the bottom left.

Favorite Book?

It would probably be Dr. Seuss books like Cat-in-the Hat and Are You My Mother.

Favorite thing from the 90s that is not around today?

The candy treat Wonder Ball.
