Square Enix says that on Marvel’s Avengers it is “conscious of a number of other issues that cause problems for some of our players,” and has issued a new PC patch to address some of the issues.
“We have just released our first patch for Marvel’s Avengers, build 12.9,” wrote Square Enix on Marvel’s Avengers Steam page. “This patch is primarily focused on stability, based on the data we have collected after Early Access started a few days ago.”
The patch includes a “work-around” for a NVIDIA 10-series driver problem that was causing crashes, and enables Steam Cloud to “allow you to easily synchronise your save-games between multiple PCs”.
Square Enix recently broke down how Marvel’s Avengers approaches gear and cosmetics 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 (which come in a minimum pack of 500 for $5). The Marketplace will carry a weekly rotation of cosmetic items.
Then there are Hero Challenge Cards which you can think of as each individual hero’s battle passes. Each card has 40 levels of free and premium rewards, and by completing daily and weekly challenges you can earn Challenge Points towards unlocking them. The six heroes available at the launch will have free unlocking of their premium Hero Challenge Card tracks.
Square Enix recently confirmed Marvel’s Avengers has received more PlayStation downloads than any other beta in history. The firm has confirmed that Marvel’s Avengers will have exclusive cosmetics on PS4, and free skins for PS Plus members.
