A dataminer has released a list of potentional post-launch characters for the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers
The information was shared on Reddit by dataminer RoboMatters, who delved into the files for the PC version of Marvel’s Avengers during its recent beta. A list of yet to be announced characters were found within the game’s code, alongside the pre-existing available roster of heroes.
Accompanied with the code “UnlockPlayableCharacter” the list of additional characters includes popular Marvel heroes Ant-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Vision, War Machine, Wasp and the Winter Soldier. Other lesser known characters such as Kate Bishop, Mar-Vell, Mockingbird, Quake and She-Hulk are also part of the collection.
A further datamine by Reddit user 6plus4equals52 also uncovered an array of character items also embedded in the code for heroes such as Captain Marvel, She-Hulk and Peter Parker.
Square Enix has yet to confirm if any of the datamined characters are coming to Marvel’s Avengers. The game is planned to be supported for several years after launch through regular updates, with additional heroes, missions and customisable items will be added throughout the game’s lifespan.
The company previously announced that Hawkeye will be joining the selection as an update after launch and will come with his own missions, abilities and skills. Spider-Man has also been confirmed to be a post-launch hero for Marvel’s Avengers, however will be exclusive to PlayStation players.
In related Marvel’s Avengers, the developer outlined the PC specific features that players can expect to utilise. Amongst the enhancements is an optional 30GB high-resolution texture pack, ultra-widescreen support and a fully unlockable framerate.
