Square Enix has rolled out a huge update for Marvel’s Avengers that focuses on fixing issues affecting gaming on consoles and PC. This is the first major update to the title since its launch earlier this month, and it aims to fix more than a thousand bugs that players have encountered in the past two weeks. The long changelog includes fixes for serious issues that prevent progress, as well as small graphics and animation changes.
The developer officially unveiled the game in mid-2019, two years after signing a multi-year development agreement with Marvel. It was supposed to launch the title on May 15, but the company postponed its release to polish the ads. Square Enix’s take on Marvel’s Avengers is an action role-playing brawler set in Team 2’s headquarters in San Francisco with online single-player, multiplayer, and co-op modes. Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and Ms. Marvel make up the first set of playable characters, with Kate Bishop, Clint Barton, and Spider-Man joining them in the future.
Since the fixes can, well, come with their own issues, Square Enix encourages players to report bugs on the Patch V1.3.0 thread on Reddit. On Twitter, the company also advised players not to refresh their weekly challenges if they see one missing, as it could lead to a crash.
While this update focuses on bug fixes, Square Enix promises that “future short-term fixes will incorporate more quality of life tweaks and feedback-based functionality.”
