New Marvel’s Avengers update will fix issues with Discordant Sound Raid and Spider-Man

Last year was marked by a lot of ups and downs for Marvel’s Avengers, a game that has certainly seen its fair share of controversy since its launch in 2020. A number of new characters have been added to the superhero roster, including new excursions with Hawkeye and Kate Bishop, as well as the hero PlayStation exclusive, Spider-man, arrived just before the end of the year. Developer Crystal Dynamics even removed Pay-To-Win XP boosts, a promise that fans felt was broken by the studio when they were initially added to the online store.


With fans continually asking for new content to play, the high point for many players came in the summer of last year when the War for Wakanda expansion was finally released for free to all players who owned the game. The big addition was Black Panther and a new campaign across localities in Wakanda. New enemies have been added to combat, new damage types in Sonic and Vibranium, and a new raid called Discordant Sound. With players reporting issues with raid content, Crystal Dynamics has announced that fixes are now live in-game.
