The process was meant to clean up some bugs; but rather, MANY more things were fixed!
Square Enix says its latest Avengers patch will address “over 1000 issues.” This includes “several progression stoppers”.
“Patch V1.3.0 is our first major patch since launch and addresses over 1000 issues you’ve helped surface these past two weeks, ranging from several progression stoppers to small graphical fixes,” Square Enix said in the update
The focus of this patch was resolving bugs. But future near-term patches will integrate more quality-of-life adjustments and feedback-driven features.
It doesn’t look like CD was exaggerating. The post goes on to outline dozens and dozens of improvements. These were grouped as changes to multiplayer and matchmaking, art and animation, user interface, combat, gear, challenges, and rewards, as well as a bunch of additional platform-specific fixes.
The patch notes go on to list a range of further issues and recommended workarounds, too.
“We can’t thank you enough for your patience and support. Please keep it coming; you are helping shape the future of Marvel’s Avengers,” the post finalized.
Square Enix broke down how Marvel’s Avengers’ approaches gear and the Marketplace is where you go to spend real money. It’s accessed from the main menu of the game and everything there is sold for Credits. The Marketplace will carry a weekly rotation of items.
Further on, there are Hero Challenge Cards, which are like battle passes for each individual hero. Every card has 40 tiers of free and premium rewards. You can earn Challenge Points toward unlocking them by completing daily and weekly challenges. The six heroes available at launch will have their premium Hero Challenge Card tracks unlocked for free.
