“There’s never been a better time to assemble in Marvel’s Avengers. We’re nearing our one-year anniversary, and players who jump in will get eight heroes, tons of single- and multi-player content, ongoing events, and more,” said Scot Amos, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “In addition, we have the War for Wakanda expansion coming in August, so now is a great opportunity to get started so you’re ready to play as Black Panther and take on Klaw with the rest of the Avengers.”
“We’re working closely with our partners at Xbox to find the right time for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players to get their all-access opportunity and will have more information about that soon,” added Amos.
The new Marvel’s Avengers update is due to arrive on Tuesday, July 6th. According to a summary of the latest developer stream, this patch won’t add any new game content but will make a series of requested fixes.
Here’s a summary of what they intend to fix (thanks, u/Billyb311):
- Provide a fix for the Vault onboarding mission
- Change Captain America’s MCU skin shield to be repositioned on his back so the star is upright
- Remove the defence buff in between missions
- Make it so the Scientist Supreme boss can’t be shrunk anymore for the instant kill
