The big Kate Bishop update that’s supposed to save Avengers and make everyone love it is here and it’s a buggy, boring, and broken mess.
I spent almost two hours trying to unlock Kate Bishop. Before I even started the mission I was already annoyed that it was forcing me to be a character that I don’t play as. My strongest character is Thor. He’s power level 150 and I wanted to use him to power through whatever mission, or missions, that I had to do to unlock Kate Bishop. Instead, Crystal Dynamics made the stupid decision to have us play as Iron Man and my Iron Man is only power level 38. So I chose Iron Man and tried getting through the mission and it was just the same ole shit that made me quit the game in September.
There was nothing that made me want to stay and put more hours into this game. I was incredibly bored and was contemplating quitting, but I really wanted to give this new update a fair shake. I wanted to at least unlock Kate Bishop to see what she played like and to see if her stages were any good. I never got that far. Why? Because the game kept crashing at the exact same spot. I had to restart the same mission 4 times and every time it crashed when I met Kate. I could never progress past the elite enemy room.
Why should I bother trying to play a game that’s clearly broken on PC? Crystal Dynamics obviously doesn’t care about putting out a polished product so why should I care about trying to get through their shitty game? And make no mistake about it Marvel’s Avengers IS a shitty game. No one asked for a live service superhero game and 95% of the players are gone. This update isn’t going to bring anyone back. As a matter of fact, not even 2,000 people came back to experience this update on PC. Not even 2,000! This game peaked at 30,000 at launch which is still really low for a game of this caliber.
I wanted to give this game another shot and I probably still will if it decides to work tonight. Because I know I’m going to be all over Cyberpunk in a few hours and I won’t stop playing that to play Avengers. What I don’t understand is how could Crystal Dynamics delay this update and still fuck it up? How? It does not work at all and the Steam forums have plenty of topics that can back that statement up. It obviously was not ready for launch, but they kind of HAD to release it since it was already pushed back once.
Have you been able to play Avengers today? Are you even interested in returning to the game?
This website is still new and I’m trying to make it as big as my last one. So if you could share this and follow me that would be greatly appreciated.
