Crystal Dynamics surprised fans today by dropping this weekend’s beta for Marvel’s Avengers several hours early. As reported by VG247, the beta was supposed to start in closed access for players with PS4 pre-orders at 9 PM local time on August 7, but this morning, a tweet from the official Avenger’s Twitter account announced that the PS4 pre-order beta has gone live worldwide.

Avengers is the Tomb Raider developer’s latest title–allowing you to take command of a crew of superheroes trying to get back into the public’s good graces–and while it’s been highly anticipated, recent gameplay demos have left many with mixed feelings. This, combined with the announcement that Spider-Man would be a PlayStation exclusive, has put Avengers under a lot of fan scrutiny leading up to the beta.
