Marvel’s Avengers Update 1.3.1 Patch Notes — Here’s Everything That’s Changed

Following the massive update for Marvel’s Avengers that addressed more than 1,000 issues, Crystal Dynamics is back with a follow-up update that fixes even more problems.

The studio has released the details on patch 1.3.1, and it fixes a number of issues that Crystal Dynamics characterized as “large.” This patch fixes an issue that could prevent players from accepting Faction Missions / Villain Sectors, and this bug also blocked players from earning some rewards. In response to this, everyone is getting 250 Polychoron and 500 Uru.

You can claim these rewards by viewing one of your Challenge cards, and it’s available until October 1 at 10 AM PT.

Patch 1.3.1 also gives Captain America a new ability–he can now smash through doors. Iron Man, meanwhile, now has “improved responsiveness,” when entering sprint flight from jumping. The game overall should be more stable, too, as the patch includes “various crash and stability fixes.” You can see the full patch notes below, as written by the developer.

In addition to these fixes, Crystal Dynamics said it is planning more updates for Avengers to add things like a ping system for War Zone, subtitle size options, a high contrast mode, and a toggle option for Hero icons to make them constantly visible.
