The free weekend in Marvel's Avengers was a hit. On PC, Avengers saw a several hundred percent jump in active players and viewers on Twitch.

IN A NUTSHELL:

The free weekend with Marvel's Avengers brought the game back to life. On Steam the title recorded several hundred percent jump in active player number, reaching over 10,000 users at the hottest moment which fell on Saturday afternoon hours.

Despite the game's poor reception on the release day, Crystal Dynamics is constantly working on developing Marvel's Avengers. In a little over two weeks, there will be another campaign introducing Black Panther as playable character - War for Wakanda. The launch is scheduled for August 17.

Until now, the standard in the PC version of Avengers was a daily average of 500 people. The free weekend, which offers, among other things, 400% of experience points, raised this number to several thousand. The number of people watching broadcasts from the title on Twitch also increased.
