Marvel's Avengers dev promises more content, "confident" players will return

By Sean Carey,
Developer Crystal Dynamics has vowed to add more content to Marvel's Avengers after listening to fans' concerns about the lack of end-game content and seeing player numbers dwindle.

Marvel's Avengers launched back in September, and the PC version of the game has already seen a significant drop off in players. Reports suggest that the game's concurrent player count was seen dipping below 1,000 players earlier this week. Now, in a statement provided to Kotaku, Crystal Dynamics studio head Scot Amos has said that the team is "making fixes, improvements, and additions as fast as we safely can to make Marvel’s Avengers the game we all aspire it to be."

Amos goes on to detail some of the new content coming to the game. New additions include, "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."

Two new heroes are "coming in the near future," Amos says. Kate Bishop and Clint Barton, the two Hawkeyes, will be joining the roster alongside new Operations which pick up from the ending of the main campaign, and will "propel the overall world story forward with new mysteries and villains, as well as new multi-player content." Amos says that in the coming months Crystal Dynamics will continue to address issues and overall game balance, including loot distribution and quality of life improvements.

"We are confident that we’ll see PC players (as well as those on Xbox One and PlayStation 4) return to the game as we add exciting new late-game content and demonstrate that we continue to be focused on improving the game," Amos's statement reads.

Crystal Dynamics says it will have more to share about the new content coming in a blog post scheduled for next week. As soon as it drops, we'll update you with what we learn.
