More On: Marvel's Avengers

While only Playstation players will get Spiderman as the new hero (a move announced at game launch and only now delivered over a year later) everybody gets to tackle the Klaw Raid in Marvel's Avengers. This all comes courtesy of the latest 2.2 patch for the game that is available now. More details on the patch below (from the press release):

  • Shipments - The Shipments feature provides an entirely new path to earn coveted cosmetics, resources, and other items strictly through gameplay, a highly requested option from the Marvel’s Avengers community. Each Shipment costs 500 Units (the currency earned while playing the game) and pulls from a collection of nearly 250 possible items, with a small chance of rewarding a premium Outfit unavailable via any other means of acquisition. But luck isn’t required to get the Outfit; players will automatically receive it after claiming 100 Shipments. A blog with more information about the Shipments feature is available to read at https://avengers.square-enix-games.com/en-us/news/earned-cosmetics-dev-blog/.
  • Power-Level Increase - The maximum Power Level achievable has increased from 150 to 175. Acquiring the best gear requires players to complete the game’s toughest challenge: the new four-player Klaw Raid: Discordant Sound on Elite mode, its hardest difficulty level.
  • Gear Upgrading - Players can now recycle gear of a higher power level to upgrade their current gear to match the higher-power level of the consumed item, with few exceptions. A blog detailing the gear upgrade system is available at https://avengers.square-enix-games.com/en-us/news/gear-resources-rework-blog.

I just picked up Marvel's Avengers for 15 bucks on the PS store's Black Friday sale, and you can still find physical copies that low at other retailers. Looking forward to diving in soon...
