Following the release of Marvel’s Avengers patch 2.3.1 last week, Crystal Dynamics has announced the Marvel’s Avengers upcoming updates! Yes, the studio has revealed info about patch 2.4 and patch 2.5! Not only that, but Jane Foster is coming to the game as Thor, too!
Marvel’s Avengers upcoming update 2.4 is set to be rolled out in May, and will focus on system improvements. Read on for more info on both upcoming patches.
Marvel’s Avengers Upcoming Updates 2.4 and 2.5 Info:
In Update 2.4 we’ll be reworking the systems behind those events with the goal of making them more rewarding. Combined with the improved game loop introduced in 2.3, we think these new rewards will make a meaningful change of pace for veteran players, and a great way to gear up for newer players.
There are a number of components going into that rework, including:
To make each event more unique and worth playing, we’re improving and diversifying rewards across events, with each event now rewarding gear from different sets.Adding Unit rewards to a wider variety of event missions to provide even more ways to earn shipments and cosmetic vendor outfits.Adding higher power level gear rewards to meta objectives to create another path to gear-up beyond the soft-cap on drops for non-Raid/Omega-Level Threat content.Meta objectives will grant rewards to your entire eligible roster, not just a single hero, allowing you to gear up your squad while playing your favorite hero.
More specific changes will be revealed at a later date.
As for update 2.5, that’s when Jane Foster: The Mighty Thor will be making her way! No specific release date has been set yet, but I gather, it’ll be released to coincide with the upcoming Marvel movie Thor: Love & Thunder, where we know Jane Foster becomes Thor (based on the recently released trailer). According to Crystal Dynamics, Foster’s abilities will have a lot in common with Odinson, though she will also have elements that are “distinctly Jane.” More details regarding Jane will be revealed in the future.
Once we know more about the two upcoming title updates, we’ll let our readers know.
