Marvel's Avengers Final Update Set for March 1

Marvel’s Avengers Final Update Set for March

After an extremely bumpy ride, Crystal Dynamics confirmed the final update for Marvel’s Avengers will release on Mar. 31, 2023.

Version 2.8 will contain the final balance adjustments, bug fixes, and most notably, discontinue the Marketplace. As a thank you for all the support, every single outfit, takedown, emote, and nameplate from the Marketplace, Challenge Cards, and Shipments will be free for everyone who owns a copy.

All unused currency will be exchanged for in-game currency at the rates detailed above.

Despite Mar. 31 being the last update, official support will last until Sept. 30, 2023. Crystal Dynamics notes single and multiplayer support will continue after Sept. 30, with no firm end date given.

The official reveal also included a rather expansive FAQ, which you can find the most notable responses below:

Will I still be able to play the game solo? 

Yes. All content that is available for solo play will continue to be available after September 30, 2023.

Will I still be able to play with my friends? 

Yes. Multiplayer will still be accessible after support discontinues on September 30, 2023.  Multiplayer will continue to require Xbox Live Gold on Xbox platforms and PS Plus on PlayStation platforms.

Will single- and multi-player play be available forever?

The changes we are making to how the game functions will ensure as long a life as possible. However, after September 30, 2023 we can’t guarantee that we will be able to address issues that occur due to unforeseen circumstances.

What happens between now and September 30, 2023? 

The game will continue to run as it has until March 31, 2023. At that time, Update 2.8 will launch with the game’s final balance changes and all Marketplace, Challenge Card, and Shipment cosmetics will be made available to all players for free.

What happens when Update 2.8 goes live? 

On March 31, 2023 with Update 2.8, we will give all players access to all Marketplace cosmetics, including every Outfit, Takedown, and Nameplate that were previously purchasable with Credits. In addition, all cosmetic items previously earnable through Hero Challenge Cards and Shipments will also be made available to all players.

Will I still be able to buy the game after March 31, 2023?

Yes. The game will remain available for purchase digitally between March 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023 and at retail while supplies last. No new digital purchases of the game will be available after September 30, 2023.

Yes, if you own the game before September 30, 2023, you will be able to reinstall it after that date. However, as noted above, after September 30, 2023 we can’t guarantee that we will be able to address issues that occur due to unforeseen circumstances.

Will events like the Red Room Takeover still run after tomorrow and September 30, 2023? 

Yes, they will run in a rotation every two weeks.

Will there be any additional bug fixes after Update 2.8?
