A new update is coming to Marvel’s Avengers in November, although a lot of players will be missing out on key content.
The game’s next hero event begins on November 30 on PlayStation consoles and introduces one of the most popular Marvel characters to the game.
But while Spider Man will be swinging into Marvel’s Avengers this week, it will only be on PS4 and PS5 consoles.
The Web-Slinger has no known release date on Xbox or PC, meaning this piece of DLC remains exclusive to Sony.
A message from Square Enix explains: “The iconic web-slinger Spider-Man will come exclusively to PlayStation players in the November 30 update along with the Spider-Man: With Great Power Hero Event.
“You’ll experience Spider-Man’s story through unlockable challenges woven throughout the Avengers Initiative. Here’s a quick taste of his journey in Marvel’s Avengers! Peter Parker uncovers AIM’s new plan to acquire technology that could make their Synthoid army unstoppable and total domination inevitable.
“He must partner with the Avengers to stop this looming threat, and forms a tentative friendship with Ms. Marvel and Black Widow while keeping his identity hidden. As a Hero accustomed to working solo, he struggles with the new dynamics of working with a team. Will he join up full time with the Avengers, or stay independent in his fight against AIM?”
Based on previous launches, we would expect the Avengers Spider-Man release time to be set for around 6pm GMT on Tuesday, November 30.
The good news for those missing is that it won’t be the only thing happening in the world of Marvel’s Avengers.
New Playable content is being added to the game for everyone to experience, with the Klaw Raid headlining.
You can find out more about it below, alongside the other features that will be making their debut at the end of this month.
Teamwork, communication, tactics—you’ll want to assemble your best four-player squad for this one. Following the events of the War for Wakanda Expansion, the sonic monster Klaw has returned to the Vibranium Mound with a seething determination to destroy Wakanda. This is where you finish him off for good and claim the highest-end gear—but he’s so not going down without a fight.
Power-Level Increase – The maximum Power Level achievable will increase from 150 to 175. Want the best gear? Then you’ll have to complete the game’s toughest challenge. The new four-player Klaw Raid: Discordant Sound is waiting for you.
Gear Upgrading – You will be able to recycle gear of a higher power level to upgrade your current gear to match the higher-power level of the consumed item (with a few exceptions).
Shipments – We’ve heard your requests for a path to earn coveted Cosmetics, resources, and other items via gameplay, as well as a place to use your plentiful Units. Enter the Shipments feature! Each Shipment costs 500 Units (the currency earned while playing the game) and pulls from a collection of possible items, but you can see what is in the current Shipment before you buy it with Units. There is a small chance of the Shipment containing a premium Outfit unavailable via any other means of acquisition. But luck isn’t required to get the Outfit—you’ll automatically receive it after claiming 100 Shipments. We’ll talk more about Shipments in the coming weeks.
Per-Hero Weekly Objectives – Starting with the Seeking the Super Adaptoid Mission Chain and the Klaw Raid: Discordant Sound, you can farm the weekly rewards once a week for each eligible Hero, rather than for only one Hero per week. We’re actively exploring expanding this Hero-Bound system to other current and future activities as well. Happy gear hunting.
