can reverse the trend in Marvel's Avengers
player counts decline
superhero game due to lack of content. They don't specify when it will happen,
but they say more missions are on the way, promising a blog update with more
details next week. Here's word:
To our players: every day we fight to
make the best game possible for our community. We have a great community
management team at Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix who funnel all of your
concerns, suggestions, and feedback to the development team daily. We are
listening. We are making fixes, improvements, and additions as fast as we safely
can to make Marvel’s Avengers the game we all aspire it to be.
As such, we have a number of new content pieces coming in the weeks ahead
including: a totally new War Zone mission type called Tachyon Rifts, a new
Outpost that’s a jumping off point for new story missions in the future, and
AIM’s Cloning Lab, which requires a coordinated high-level group of four players
to beat with new top-end loot rewards for finishing it. And in each of these
updates we do tuning and bug fixing to enhance the overall experience.
In addition, we’ve announced two new Heroes coming in the near future: Kate
Bishop in Operation: Taking AIM, and after that the double-feature Operation
starring Clint Barton… this is the “two Hawkeyes” we mentioned in the last War
Table. These new Operations pick up right from where the main Reassemble
campaign ended in the core game and will propel the overall world story forward
with new mysteries and villains, as well as new multi-player content.
Lastly, we will continue to add new content to the game in the coming months as
we address issues and overall game balance, including loot distribution and
quality of life features everyone is clamoring for to improve our day-to-day
experience from accessibility to co-op communication tools to balancing the
We are confident that we’ll see PC players (as well as those on Xbox One and
PlayStation 4) return to the game as we add exciting new late-game content and
demonstrate that we continue to be focused on improving the game.
We’ll have more information and details about the very near content drops in a
blog scheduled for next week and we have new community communication initiatives
coming soon to even more directly share fun and useful information with you.
Thank you for coming with us on this journey to truly realize the best of what
Marvel’s Avengers can become.
