The upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game will release with six playable characters when it launches on September 4th. Crystal Dynamics promises that more playable characters will come in the future, with Hawkeye and Spider-Man already announced.

In addition to the roster that we already know about, a recent datamine of the PC beta code has uncovered a long list of unlockable Marvel’s Avengers characters. The list was uncovered by Reddit user RoboMatters, who explored the beta’s executable file. The list of characters is each named with an “UnlockPlayableCharacter_” prefix. You can find the list below:
Marvel’s Avengers Datamined Characters
- Black Panther
- Captain Marvel
- Doctor Strange
- Kate Bishop
- Scarlet Witch
- War Machine
- Winter Soldier
Of course, this list isn’t definitive and could be subject to change. However, if these Marvel’s Avengers characters do make it into the final game, it’s a pretty solid roster. Some could quite simply be different iterations of existing characters as they will likely have very similar skill sets and weapons. For example, War Machine as Iron Man, She-Hulk as Hulk, Kate Bishop as Hawkeye, and Mar-Vell and Captain Marvel.
Other characters like Quake, Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange could all offer some new gameplay styles post-launch to keep the game feeling fresh.
