In order to play 4-player co-op in Marvel’s Avengers, you’ll first need to progress far enough into the main campaign. Once you reach the first mission that stars four different superheroes, you’ll be able to matchmake and invite friends. Outside of the main campaign, you can also play the Avengers Initiative mode with up to three additional online players; you may encounter spoilers if you opt to do this before finishing the story, however.

After the opening A-Day mission, which has featured prominently in the game’s marketing and betas, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes go their separate ways. Although it’s part of the narrative, this is mostly a means for the game to introduce the nuances of each hero gradually while players are free from the hectic distractions of 4-player co-op. After you’ve learned the ropes and the story really gets going, that’s when you can start enjoying co-op with up to three other players.
