What you need to know
- 2.0 patch for Marvel's Avengers launches as the new Black Panther content joins the game.
- Beyond new content, a heap of fixes for PC and console.
- Current known issues relate to Iron Man, Black Panther's character card, and more.
As Marvel's Avengers sees its biggest content drop to date, the Black Panther - War for Wakanda expansion, a sizeable v2.0 patch comes with it. Obviously, a big portion of this is the new Wakanda region and the mission content that goes with it, but there's a lot of fixes and improvements that come with it.
To check out what's fixed, give the full patch notes a read while you're waiting for the update to download. What is worth highlighting, however, is the list of current known issues as v2.0 drops.
It's not a big list, but here's what we're looking at:
- In the Corrupted Vibranium Event, Iron Man's mission chain objective that states players need to "Defeat enemies with Power Attacks while using Hulkbuster" is supposed to be "Defeat enemies with Light Power Attacks while using Hulkbuster."
- Hawkeye aims up when using his grappling arrow.
- Black Panther's Challenge Card has some placeholder text in the descriptions.
- Thor's cape in his "Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame" Outfit clips through his body.
- When Thor wears his "Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame" Outfit and stands in front of a mirror, his body is missing in the reflection.
- Subtitles are mistimed in The Sound and the Fury.
- Iron Man's hero challenge "Laser Light Show" is not progressing as needed and will be addressed in a later patch
Not a lot to worry about, thankfully, and they'll all get fixed in forthcoming patches. It's tempting to spend a lot of time looking in the mirror as Thor, but maybe give it a miss for a week or two.
