Marvel's Avengers: War Table launch stream coming next week

By Heidi Nicholas,
The Marvel's Avengers team has confirmed a special edition of the War Table stream will take place next week on September 1st, and it sounds as though we'll be hearing a lot more about post-launch plans.

The previous War Table streams have all been pretty in-depth. The first covered Thor gameplay and details on the villain M.O.D.O.K., while the most recent went into a huge amount of detail on the beta, and confirmed that Hawkeye will be the first post-launch hero.

Crystal Dynamics has already confirmed it has a lot of plans for post-launch content, and that it will be supporting the game for some time with new heroes, regions, and missions. According to VG247, the stream will take a deep dive into the game's first post-launch story season. We already know that at launch, the game revolves around Kamala's mission of reassembling the Avengers, which is presumably why we start out with major heroes like Iron Man and Thor. After that, it'll go into the full Avengers Initiative, which is when we start to get new heroes — like Hawkeye — and new missions and regions.

It seems this third War Table stream will reveal another post-launch hero, as well as some new details about the Avengers Initiative. If you pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition, you'll probably already be playing the game with its three-day early access when the stream takes place, but it might still be worth tuning in to catch some post-launch details. Either way, we'll be sure to keep you up to date with the devs' plans for future content.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
