Marvel's Avengers gets patch to fix achievements, but they might not unlock retroactively

By Sean Carey,
A new patch for Marvel's Avengers that should fix the game's broken achievements will be available to download later today. However, Crystal Dynamics is unclear if certain achievements will unlock retroactively.

Patch notes for V1.2.5. have been uploaded over on the Marvel's Avengers website. A section at the bottom reads, "Achievements should now unlock and increment properly. We are still investigating if all achievements will be granted retroactively – our current theory is that story-based will, but challenge-based will not."

It seems that achievements relating to the main storyline should retroactively unlock, but any others might not. We aren't sure what "challenge-based" means in this context. There is an achievement for completing all HARM Challenges and two others regarding Challenge difficulty, but these seem to be popping correctly. These are the achievements that still have not been unlocked by a single player:
