Additionally, you'll be able to customize your own HARM rooms with new rules and challenges. These rooms basically act as brutal challenge gauntlets, throwing waves and waves of enemies at you and your allies, and you'll now be able to set them up exactly as you want.

On the same day that the these updates for Marvel's Avengers launch, Hawkeye will also be joining the game. Hawkeye was previously revealed to be the second post-launch hero joining the game's roster last year, after Kate Bishop, and the character will be available as a free download for everyone on all platforms.

Finally, Maestro is joining Marvel's Avengers as an opposing villain, alongside all the aforementioned updates and improvements. If you're unfamiliar with the character, he's like an evil version of the Incredible Hulk, first introduced in The Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect run of comic books all the way back in 1992.

Recently, developer Crystal Dynamics announced that the XP system of Marvel's Avengers would be overhauled. Simply put, you'll be levelling up a lot less often once you hit the game's higher levels, around every two to four missions, and Crystal Dynamics clarified the changes after that were first announced, saying it wasn't a grind for the grind's sake.
