Virgin Media customers can give their Marvel’s Avengers Heroes a wardrobe change with an exclusive suite of outfits when the game is released on September 4. They’re also being given early access to the beta this weekend.

The outfits, which are only available to Virgin Media customers in the UK, are inspired by developer Crystal Dynamics’ favourite comic book looks. To help get gamers ready ahead of launch of the game next month, Virgin Media is also giving its customers  the opportunity to get early access to Marvel’s Avengers beta between Friday 14 and Sunday 16 August.

When the game is released on September 4, Virgin Media customers will have 90 days to claim the exclusive outfits which can be applied to each main character. These include:

  • Hulk:  Ascendancy Outfit
  • Black Widow: Lucent Shadow Outfit
  • Captain America: Burning Might Outfit
  • Iron Man: Jet Stream Armor Outfit
  • Ms. Marvel: Event Horizon  Outfit
  • Thor: Light Breaker Outfit

Virgin Media has thousands of beta codes to give away to customers on their preferred gaming platform – Xbox or PC – when entering online.

The beta will let players get exclusive hands-on with the game ahead of full launch. It will be the first opportunity to experience single-player or co-op War Zone missions where players can connect and join forces with friends online as they play as their favourite Marvel’s Avengers characters. 

Ahead of the beta opening, Virgin Media has teamed up with the Arekkz Gaming squad to give Virgin Media customers a run-down of what to expect. The squad provide top tips and inside knowledge of their own experience playing Marvel’s Avengers. This is now available to watch on their YouTube channel.

Says Cilesta Van Doorn, Director of Brand and Marketing at Virgin Media:

 “There is no better time to be a gamer, a fan of Marvel’s Avengers and, of course, a Virgin Media customer. Not only are we giving our customers incredibly stylish and exclusive skins, we are also giving them early beta access to assemble with friends online and play as their favourite Super Heroes.”
