Marvel’s Avengers Gets Suite of Free Pride Outfits & New Short Story

It’s the last day of Pride Month, but Crystal Dynamics is still not done celebrating. The studio is giving away a bundle of free skins for various heroes within Marvel’s Avengers to coincide with the release of its previously announced LGBTQ+ short story set in Wakanda.

The bundle includes nine skins for nine different heroes. Players can redeem them by going to the proper redemption website and logging in with their Square Enix account. Punching in the code “SUNSETORCHID” will unlock the skins, granted that players are also logged in with their Square account in the game. The code must be entered using all capital letters or else it won’t work (it may seem like it automatically capitalizes lowercase letters, but it doesn’t). It’s unclear when the promo ends, if it does.

The nine skins are shown in the image at the top of the article and they, fittingly, somewhat resemble a rainbow when put side by side. These Pride skins are:

  • Red Room Hawkeye
  • Cosmonaut Black Widow
  • Sand Shark Captain America
  • Monotomic Hulk
  • 10,000 Years Black Panther
  • Trackstar Ms. marvel
  • Giantsbane Thor
  • Crash Test Kate Bishop
  • Avengers Archer Iron Man

The code can be found at the bottom of the new short story called “A Sunset with You.” The queer story focuses in on Dora Milaje trainee Ayo while she tries to woo her captain Aneka. ms. Marvel is also in the story, as shown in its multiple cover variants. There’s not much art in it, which is likely why Crystal Dynamics didn’t call it a comic.

In additional to the short story and skins, Crystal Dynamics did previously add LGBTQ+ nameplates to the game and also held a fundraiser for The Trevor Project, a crisis resource for LGBTQ+ youth.
