It’s been over a month since Crystal Dynamics Marvel’s Avengers came out. And logically you’d expect a massive video game such as this, to be at the top of the list for most gamers.
You’ve got tons of Avengers in them, a loot-based system to create your very own gameplay build and the bonus of having lots of time to grind since most of us are in the safety of our homes due to the pandemic. Yet, despite all of that, the game is losing players continuously, and it does not look good at all.
In my review of Marvel’s Avengers, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it and even continued playing the game subsequently with Sal. It was fun, and there were lots to do, in the beginning at least. However, once you chew down everything that it has to offer with all the characters, challenges and Hive missions; there’s nothing left to do except dailies.
This lack of content is ultimately the reason why the player base is diminishing and is vastly noticeable on the PC front based on Steam statistics. Crystal Dynamics is very well aware of this recent development but is confident enough assure that gamers will return once their new content gets rolled out.
New Marvel’s Avengers content is on its way, but no concrete data to prove it.
In a report published by Kotaku, Crystal Dynamics studio head Scot Amos gave a lengthy statement on the situation by explaining that the studio is working around the clock to improve the game and are in the works of bringing new content.
Amos reaffirmed that the two new Heroes, Kate Bishop and Hawkeye, will be coming and will be a continuation of the story plot from the base game. However, no actual confirmation of a date was given, which begs the question of how long more will people hold out patiently? Because honestly, the game is already long overdue for a content release.
The studio is also working on providing a brand new War Zone mission type called Tachyon Rifts to serve as a stepping-off point for future content with brand new endgame loot. But is it enough to justify replaying with old characters? Only time will tell, I suppose.
I agree that It’s nice to see the entire team is hard at work to make Marvel’s Avengers work, but without proper release date information to share and back up the claims; it’s still not looking promising overall.
