Latest Marvel’s Avengers Update V1.3.1 Adds Quality of Life Fixes, Awards Loads of Missing Rare Materials

After the last Marvel’s Avengers update fixed more than 1000 bugs, the latest one focuses on a number of balancing changes, quality of life fixes, and gives players the Polychoron they’ve missed through Villain Sectors while those activities were broken. Players will need to log on and view a character’s challenge card by October 1st to claim the rare materials.

While not nearly as extensive as the V1.3.0 patch, update V1.3.1 makes a lot of gameplay changes, such as updating Captain America with the ability to smash through damaged doors like most other characters have the ability to do. A number of enemies have been tuned with alterations to their attacks to address some complaints that players have had.

Though not ready for this patch, a future update will include Subtitle Size Options*, High Contrast Mode, War Zone Ping System*, and a toggle option for Hero icons to remain always visible.*
