Square Enix has more Marvel’s Avengers exclusive content in the process of being planned or developed. Customers from different companies are reportedly receiving special skins and emotes.
It seems that an exclusive deal was not only closed around Spider-Man, which brings the character exclusively to the PlayStation consoles. According to a report by JayShockblast on YouTube, Verizon Up and Virgin Media customers will have the option to redeem exclusive character costumes as soon as Marvel’s Avengers launches next month.
Additionally, Square Enix will be offering another set of exclusive costumes as part of a promotion with Intel. And finally, players who will purchase special packs of 5 Gum in the US will be able to enjoy a special in-game emote. This means that buyers of Marvel’s Avengers will only receive all content that is created for the game under certain conditions. In the case of exclusive costumes, however, it would not be a surprise if they were made available to all players at a later date.

It has long been known that publisher Square Enix has signed a global marketing agreement with PlayStation that includes early beta access for PS4 players and timed-exclusive cosmetics for characters.
In addition, the developer Crystal Dynamics confirmed that Spider-Man will be included in the ranks of Marvel’s Avengers in early 2021 and “will be available at no additional cost to owners of the base game, exclusively on PlayStation.” This fact has already caused a lot of criticism.
Marvel’s Avengers will release on September 4th, 2020 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. In addition, the upgraded version of the title for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles will be supplied later.
