Some Marvel’s Avengers missions are best played with fellow Avengers so if you want to know how to invite friends and play with them, this guide will help you out. Find out if this game has couch/local/split-screen multiplayer and learn how to enable matchmaking to play with strangers online. Now without further ado, let’s begin.

How to Invite Friends in Marvel’s Avengers: Unlock Multiplayer

To unlock Multiplayer in Marvel’s Avengers, you have to play around 3 hours to get to the War Table. As soon as your War Table is unlocked, you can begin multiplayer mode. Here’s more detail about it:

If you want to play with a friend, you can play with that person along with AI as other players in the team. This is how:

Check the main menu and look for Avengers Initiative. This is where you can experience Marvel’s Avengers Multiplayer. Note that only specific missions can be played with others, the story missions are to be played strictly solo. So, once you are at Avengers Initiative, you can play with up to 3 other players. They can be your friends, friends and AI or all random people.

Is there Couch Co-op Local Multiplayer in Marvel’s Avengers?

Sadly, no. There is no local/split-screen multiplayer in this game. Only Online Multiplayer option is available that can be used through PSN or Xbox Live.

Inviting Friends for Co-op Multiplayer

Visit the Menu and head to the Social menu. Simply fill up empty slots by inviting players to join your strike team. Click the Invite Friends button that you will see on the screen (Press X/A). Once your friend accepts the invite, they will be able to join forces with you right away.

How to Enable Matchmaking

In case none of your friends can be invited to play, don’t worry! Matchmaking will come to your rescue. To have random players join your strike team, you have to do the following steps:

  • Choose a Multiplayer mission from the War Table
  • Go to the Hero Roster
  • Pick the hero of your choice (No duplicate heroes!)
  • Press Square/X to start matchmaking
  • In case you get a Failed to Join Session error, read our linked guide to know the fix. This happened in the Beta version and the solution is same for the launched game.

If you want to turn off matchmaking, you can do so by pressing the Square/X button.

Marvel’s Avengers Crossplay: Is Cross-Platform Play Available?

Unfortunately no, there is no crossplay in Marvel’s Avengers (Xbox One, PC, PS4). It is unclear if and when this feature will be available.
