Marvel’s Avengers has had a tricky launch. The sport has endeared itself to gamers with a robust story and a reasonably enjoyable post-campaign reside sport component–even although the 2 elements did not actually really feel in sync–but it has been plagued with bugs since its launch. With a brand new replace, developer Crystal Dynamics is hoping to filter the infestation, claiming to deal with greater than 1,00Zero points.
As Crystal Dynamics notes on the Avengers web site, Replace 1.3.Zero is the primary huge patch since Avengers’ launch, inbuilt response to bug reviews it has obtained from gamers on Reddit and elsewhere. The main target is totally on bugs at this level, with quality-of-life adjustments coming down the road in later updates. In the interim, although, there are quite a lot of bugs to patch, starting from bizarre graphical points to main issues.
Avengers’ largest hassle to date has been instability leading to crashes. Throughout my time reviewing the sport on PC, I discovered crashing to be a significant difficulty within the days after the sport’s full launch. PC gamers particularly have been complaining about that difficulty, however it’s affected the console variations of the sport as properly. Crystal Dynamics mentions coping with PC crashes in Replace 1.3.0’s notes; Nvidia additionally has launched new graphics card drivers that ought to hopefully assist the difficulty.
Take a look at the complete patch notes for Replace 1.3.Zero beneath.
