Marvel’s Avengers will launch for everyone on September 4, but many players have already had a chance to experience the game thanks to its beta program, culminating in an open weekend beta in late August. As it turns out, this was a big success–the biggest in the history of the PS4, in fact.
Square Enix has announced that the Marvel’s Avengers beta was the biggest ever on PS4. Or, more specifically, it was the “most downloaded,” meaning that a lot of people installed it onto their system.
A heroic achievement — the Marvel’s Avengers Beta was globally the most-downloaded beta in PlayStation history. Congrats to our team @CrystalDynamics!#EmbraceYourPowers on September 4 https://t.co/UVFJmEgcrq pic.twitter.com/lAMniXczWg

While the tweet does not provide numbers, Gamesradar estimates a figure close to 5 million people across PS4, Xbox One, and PC by extrapolating play data. The actual figures remain unknown–especially since there would be some who installed the beta and did not get a chance to play it, and this likely combines players across the earlier access beta and the open beta.
