Earlier this week Marvels Avengers got one of its biggest patches ever, complete with some new content. But it looks like this new content is going to have to streamline the players for a while. On Friday, Crystal Dynamics announced several delays in some of its upcoming ones Marvels Avengers add-ons – including the next-generation version of the game for PlayStation 5 and Xbox One.
However, the most immediate delay will be on the game’s first new character, Kate Bishop. She was due to be released in October, but the developer pushed the timing back. No specific time frame specified in the developer blog. Also being pushed back is the operation that was to come along with Bishop̵
Unfortunately, Bishop was not the only one who was delayed. Crystal Dynamics also announced that it was pushing the release date for next-generation versions of Marvels Avengers back. The game’s next generation upgrades were scheduled for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X later this year, but now they will not be ready until 2021.
You can still play the game on next-generation systems when they are released, but the upgrades will be minimal and limited to those provided by the more powerful hardware – such as increased frame rate and faster load times.
The post also had some information about the additions Crystal Dynamics plans to make Marvels Avengers‘playoffs. For example, the post mentions that the first omega-level threat mission called the AIM Cloning Lab is on its way in the near future. Cloning Lab will require players to play at a higher power level, but it will also have more powerful rewards. AIM Cloning Lab will only be available to players from 13 EDT on Fridays until 13 EDT on Mondays. However, the post does not include a release date for the mission.
Despite missing release dates, there was some good news. Crystal Dynamics shares some free in-game rewards with players via a “thank you bundle”, a gift to players after the first few weeks since launch. The package includes:
- Credits: 1500 – Enough for a legendary skin and name tag from the market
- Units: 7000
- Upgrade modules: 250
- DNA keys: 20
- A Sarah Garza-inspired name tag
The bundle will be available for players to claim until November 5 at. 13 EDT.
