Marvel’s Avengers – She-Hulk, Kate Bishop, War Machine References Spotted in Beta Datamine

Could the game's beta files have spilled the beans on upcoming post-launch characters?

Marvel’s Avengers will be launching with six playable characters (that we know of), but Crystal Dynamics have said that more will be added to the game for free after launch. A couple of these have already been confirmed- Hawkeye will be the first post-launch character, while Spider-Man will be available exclusively on PS4 and PS5 some time in 2021. Now, it seems we may have evidence that points to even more unannounced characters coming down the line.

The game’s closed beta recently kicked off on PS4, and unsurprisingly, dataminers have been digging around in its files. As discovered by Reddit user 6plus4equals52, files in the beta have direct references to She-Hulk, Kate Bishop, and War Machine for Hero Cards. Similar references can also be found for characters that are confirmed to be in the game, such as Hawkeye, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, and more.

There is the possibility, of course, that these could be in relation to cosmetic items or collectibles, especially given the fact that the aforementioned Hero Cards files also mention rarities. There’s also the fact that Kate Bishop, She-Hulk, and War Machine could easily be alternate skins for Hawkeye, Hulk, and Iron Man respectively. Or perhaps they’re echo fighters, a la Smash Bros.

Either way, if these do turn out to be characters coming to the game, we can rest assured that they won’t cause a repeat of the ongoing uproar surrounding Spider-Man’s exclusivity, with Crystal Dynamics having confirmed that he will be the only exclusive character in the game.

Marvel’s Avengers launches on September 4 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. It will be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X later in the year, and support free next-gen upgrades for both.

The game’s closed beta on PS4 recently kicked off. We were able to spend several hours with it over the course of a week before that- you can read our impressions through here.
