Marvel's Avengers Update Adds New Missions And First Cosmic Gear

Marvel’s Avengers has a new patch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and it introduces some major new content. The big new additions to the endgame are Tachyon Rifts, which contain exciting new gear, and the SHIELD Substation Zero, which promises new characters and narrative. While the patch is live now, the new content won’t arrive until October 15.

With patch 1.3.3, SHIELD has opened its Substation Zero Outpost, which will be looking into temporal anomalies. This promises “new narrative, characters, and content,” although the patch notes don’t get too specific about what this will all look like. It’ll appear in the Pacific Northwest region of the War Table once it arrives.

The Tachyon Rift missions also relate to these anomalies, hurling players into dangerous environments where Tachyon storms will damage them over time (but also charge up their Heroic energy faster). These missions require a 140 Power Level or higher, and are available once per day, rotating out daily. They will also offer up a Cosmic Gear, a new tier of high-powered gear for your Avengers.

Developer Crystal Dynamics has been promising more content for the game’s playerbase, so hopefully this update will give everyone something more to do.

The patch also adds many fixes and improvements to the game. Here’s a highlight list from the full patch notes:

  • Remote faction terminals have been added to outposts, which allow collection of faction assignments and villain sector bounties without the need to visit each faction coordinator in person.
  • Extended pickup radius for reward drops.
  • The ability to preview cosmetic vendor items.
  • Option to scale subtitle/closed caption text size.
  • Closed Captions will no longer be automatically display in cinematics when subtitles are displayed.
  • Movement speed increased in outposts when in Avengers Initiative
  • AI companion improvements, including assistance when player needs to be revived.
  • Improved Mega Hive rewards. They now are guaranteed to give two exclusive exotic gear items and an increased amounts of upgrade modules upon completion.
  • Implemented a fix that will retroactively grant Iron Man’s iconic outfit for players who previously lost it due to a bug.

The patch is coming for the Stadia version too, but isn’t available yet.

Avengers’ first DLC character will be Kate Bishop, and we’re hoping for more information on her release date soon.
