A new set of Marvel's Avengers patch notes are here in time for the weekend, and though it's not quite as big as the last list of hot fixes, existing players will want to take note of update 1.3.1 for the free rewards it brings to Square Enix's superhero simulator. 

As a way of apologising for a now fixed bug that prevented some from accepting Faction Missions / Villain Sectors, Crystal Dynamics is offering 250 Polychoron and 500 Uru to all players as soon as they log in after downloading the update. 

We've listed the full set of Marvel's Avengers patch notes below (live across all available platforms), which also features a number of tweaks to make the game run a bit smoother in response to continued fan feedback. Check them out. 

Marvel's Avengers Patch Notes 1.3.1

Reassemble Campaign and Avengers Initiative      

Various Crash and Stability fixes

Fixed a rare issue when selecting “Once an Avenger” inadvertently sent the player to the wrong mission.

Fixed an issue keeping some mission chains from completing properly when all requirements are met. (Example: Reigning Supreme) 

Various combat fixes/tuning, including:

Captain America can now smash through doors.

Fixed an issue where overcharge meters were inappropriately decreasing during a team finisher.


Improved responsiveness when entering sprint flight from jumping as Iron Man.

Improved reliability of Iron Man’s Thruster Uppercut.

Improved presentation of Captain America’s sprinting block.

Increased global cooldown for all quantum homing projectile attacks.

Fixed additional issues that prevented daily requisitions from clearing as intended
