Marvel’s Avengers received a closed beta for PC last weekend (August 14-16) and a dataminer has potentially discovered a list of post-launch characters.
The information was shared on Reddit by dataminer RoboMatters, who delved into the beta files for Marvel’s Avengers. 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.
A series of characters that are not as commonly known are also included in the list with Kate Bishop, Mar-Vell, Mockingbird, Quake and She-Hulk being a part of the collection.
