Earlier this week, Marvel’s Avengers got one of its biggest patches so far, full of a little new content. But it seems that this new content will have to put pressure on players for a while. On Friday, Crystal Dynamics announced several delays for some of its upcoming Marvel’s Avengers add-ons – including the next-generation version of the game for PlayStation 5 and Xbox One.
However, the most immediate delay will be the first new hero of the game, Kate Bishop. It was supposed to be released in October, but the developer shifted the time back. There is no specific time frame given in the developer blog. The eviction was also the operation that was to come with the release of Bishop, including the Tachyon Rifts and the Taking AIM missions.
Unfortunately, Bishop was not the only thing that was delayed. Crystal Dynamics also announced that it has released the release date of the next versions of Marvel̵
You can still play the game on next-generation systems when they are released, but upgrades will be minimal and limited to those provided by more powerful hardware – such as increased frame rate and faster boot times.
The publication also contained information about the additions that Crystal Dynamics plans to make Marvel’s Avengers‘late game. For example, the publication mentions that the first Omega-level threat mission, called the AIM Cloning Lab, will be on its way in the near future. Cloning Lab will require players to play at a higher power level, but there will also be more powerful rewards. The AIM Cloning Lab will only be available to players from 13:00 EDT on Friday to 13:00 EDT on Monday. However, the publication does not include the launch date of the mission.
Despite the lack of release dates, there was some good news. Crystal Dynamics shares some free in-game prizes with players through a “thank you package”, a gift for players after the first few weeks of launch. The package will include:
- Loans: 1500 – Enough for the legendary leather and plate from the market
- Units: 7000
- Upgrade modules: 250
- DNA keys: 20.
- A sign inspired by Sarah Garza
The package will be available to players who can apply until November 5 at 13:00 EDT.
