TL;DR: As of Aug. 31, you can preorder select editions of Marvel’s Avengers (out Sept. 4) at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, the Playstation Store, the Microsoft Store, and Steam.


We’ve held out for a hero long enough: After several years in the making and a delayed release, Marvel’s Avengers is finally coming to Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on Sept. 4.

Developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal (the teams behind the latest Tomb Raider games), Marvel’s Avengers is a third-person action-adventure game set five years after an A-Day tragedy that results in the Avengers’ disbandment. Polygon reports that the game’s story mode will have players assuming the roles of iconic characters like the Hunk, Kamala Khan (a.k.a. Ms. Marvel), Thor, Black Widow, Iron Man, and Captain America to get the gang back together and defeat evil entities like Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM) and the supervillain MODOK. You’ll also get the chance to link up with up to three other players for online multiplayer missions.

The Marvel’s Avengers beta left much to be desired, so here’s hoping the full game delivers a more fleshed-out superhero experience. Either way, diving into your first playthrough wouldn’t be the worst way to spend a socially distant Labor Day weekend.

Here’s a quick rundown of all of the early-bird bonuses you’ll get by preordering select editions of the game:

Standard Edition — $59.99
