Marvel's Avengers

Following reports of a dwindling player base, developer Crystal Dynamics promised players that more end-game content would be on the way soon. Now, that content has arrived in the form of extra missions. According to the Marvel’s Avengers V1.3.3 patch notes, SHIELD has opened its new Substation Zero outpost, which will be used for investigating temporal anomalies. This outpost offers "new narrative, characters and content," and can be found in the Pacific Northwest on the War Table. From here, players can start Tachyon Rift missions, where Tachyon storms will slowly deplete the player's health. However, Heroic energy will charge much faster. To access Tachyon Rift missions, you'll need a character with 140 Power Level or higher. Missions will be available once per day and offer up Cosmic Gear as a reward.

On the Xbox side of things, a couple of achievement fixes have rolled out. For some players, The Best Defense achievement was not popping, but that seems to have been fixed now, and an issue which saw the Trying on Perfection achievement rewarding the Seeing Stars achievement has also been resolved.

There have also been a bunch of bug fixes and quality of life improvements made with the V1.3.3 update. We've included a list of highlights from the patch notes below, but to read the full list head over to the Marvel's Avengers website.

  • Remote faction terminals have been added to outposts, which allow collection of faction assignments and villain sector bounties without the need to visit each faction coordinator in person.
  • Extended pickup radius for reward drops.
  • The ability to preview cosmetic vendor items.
  • Option to scale subtitle/closed caption text size.
  • Closed Captions will no longer be automatically displayed in cinematics when subtitles are displayed.
  • Movement speed increased in outposts when in Avengers Initiative
  • AI companion improvements, including assistance when player needs to be revived.
  • Improved Mega Hive rewards. They now are guaranteed to give two exclusive exotic gear items and an increased amounts of upgrade modules upon completion.
  • Implemented a fix that will retroactively grant Iron Man's iconic outfit for players who previously lost it due to a bug.
