It’s only been out for a month, but Marvel’s Avengers players are kind of on the bored side. This is probably not a huge surprise, as the game launched with somewhat threadbare content options for its persistent multiplayer options, helped not one whit by the fact that there are only six characters and you can’t have multiple versions of the same character on a team. But in a statement to Kotaku, Crystal Dynamics studio head Scot Amos said that more content is coming in the near future that would address the need for more player activities:
As such, we have a number of new content pieces coming in the weeks ahead including: a totally new War Zone mission type called Tachyon Rifts, a new Outpost that’s a jumping off point for new story missions in the future, and AIM’s Cloning Lab, which requires a coordinated high-level group of four players to beat with new top-end loot rewards for finishing it. And in each of these updates we do tuning and bug fixing to enhance the overall experience.
This statement comes in the wake of continually declining player numbers, so it seems obvious that Crystal Dynamics is hoping to bring back lapsed players sooner rather than later. No actual dates have yet been cited, but more details are supposedly en route for next week. So if you’ve done everything there is to be done in the game, you should have more options in the not-too-distant future. You can check out our impressions of the game from the beta if you’re curious about giving the game a second (or first) look.
