Marvel’s Avengers adds major game change for new event

Next week, developer Crystal Dynamics will be launching a new in-game event for Marvel’s Avengers. Dubbed “Tachyon Anomaly”, the event will run from April 22nd to May 3rd, introducing new challenges and a chance to grab some top tier Avengers loot.


What’s particularly intriguing about Tachyon Anomaly is how it’s changing one of major rule for Marvel’s Avengers. With the game’s lore having already fiddled with time travel plotlines, this serves as a great excuse for having multiple versions of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes fight alongside each other. So, whether it’s 2 Captain Americas and 2 Hawkeyes, or all 4 players suiting up as Iron Man, this latest event will remove previous barriers limiting teams to one of each Avenger.

When asked by fans whether they’d consider making this change permanent, the official Marvel’s Avengers Twitter account made the following reply: “Let us know what you think of this event and if you want it to return! We’ll be listening for feedback!”

In addition, Tachyon Anomaly will be dishing out exclusive rewards that can be earned by completing weekly missions and daily challenges.

It was only last month that Marvel’s Avengers had its biggest post-launch content drop titled Future Imperfect. Following on from December’s Kate Bishop “Taking AIM” update, the free DLC expansion introduced Avengers mainstay Hawkeye as a playable character along with solo story missions and a new environment.

Here’s what we though in our review of the new content:

Overall, Operation: Future Imperfect is a small step in the right direction, but it fails to tackle the biggest issues Marvel’s Avengers faces. Those left bitter by the game’s live service hooks, uninspired loot, and reliance on grindy dungeon brawls will find nothing worth celebrating here.

During a recent Square Enix publisher showcase, we saw a glimpse of the Black Panther: War for Wakanda expansion as well as the Marvels’ Avengers roadmap. It has been confirmed that players will be getting some MCU content in the form of a Red Room takeover later this spring.

In other Marvel’s Avengers news, the game has been recently added to Sony game streaming service, PlayStation Now.
