Square Enix has announced a big development update coming to Marvel’s Avengers and has admitted that the current game isn’t “sufficiently delivering the most fun Super Hero team experience.” While major chnages are coming, the company isn’t quiet ready to share it’s full roadmap just yet. Patch 2.3 will launch in March, along with several changes and improvements to the game.
According to developers, “Nick Fury is returning to lead SHIELD and coordinate future Avengers Initiative missions alongside Director Hill” in the upcoming update. Square Enix also has plans for a “much-needed rework of the War Table and the mission-select system.” This will involve “changing how to find, select, and launch missions on the leveling journey throughout the Avengers Initiative.” The “primary goal” for the update coming to Marvel’s Avengers is “to improve the flow for new players to reduce frustration in the leveling process. The more organized and directed experience will also create larger, more concentrated matchmaking pools for higher-level players.”
The company aslo has plans to “further balance gear perks.” Gear sets will be made earnable “through a wider set of play activities to give” to give players more “options to hunt for the perfect build.” The next patch will build on the game’s previous 2.2 update and make adjustments “by adding Units as additional rewards to a number of end-game activities.”
Square Enix has been happy with the results of their previous update and have plans to “extend that per-Hero system to Mega Hives in the next update.” Additionally, Square Enix will continue to “prioritize critical bugs like improving raid stability.”
In conclusion, “This is just a glimpse of what lies ahead.” Square Enix will be releasng more details “as we get closer to release.” Adding, “We also can’t wait to share more about our long-term plans and will do so as soon as our teams finalize development and launch schedules.
