Marvel’s Avengers updates to be pushed back until 2021 for PS5 and Xbox Series X
Crystal Dynamics had announced that updates for Marvel’s Avengers game will be delayed especially for the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X.
One of the updates that will be affected would be the first new character for the game, Hawkeye aka Kate Bishop.
Kate was supposed to be downloadable this month together with missions like the Tachyon Rifts and the Taking AIM missions. But these updates have failed to materialize. The developers did not comment on their blog as to when players could expect these missions.
And remember, I reposted a story about the Avengers getting a PS5 and Xbox Series X version around the holidays? Together with the release of the PS5? Well apparently that’s pushed too; delayed until 2021.
The post also had some information on the additions Crystal Dynamics plans to make to Marvel’s Avengers’ late game. For instance, the post mentions that the first Omega-Level Threat mission, which is called AIM Cloning Lab will be on the way in the near future. The Cloning Lab will require players to play at a higher power-level, but it will also have more powerful rewards. The AIM Cloning Lab will only be available to players from 1 p.m. EDT on Fridays until 1 p.m. EDT on Mondays. However, the post doesn’t include a release date for the mission.
Despite a lack of release dates, there was some good news. Crystal Dynamics is sharing some free in-game rewards with players via an “thank-you bundle,” a gift to players after the first few weeks since launch. The bundle will include:
- Credits: 1500 – Enough for a Legendary Skin and Nameplate from the Marketplace
- Units: 7000
- Upgrade Modules: 250
- DNA Keys: 20
- A Sarah Garza-Inspired Nameplate
The bundle will be available for players to claim until Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. EDT.
