Marvel’s Avengers September 9 Console Update Fixes Bugs And Improves Load Time

Marvel’s Avengers has had a rocky launch. The game is riddled with bugs and performance issues. Developer Crystal Dynamics is aware of that and has been constantly working in order to fix it. The game has already received three small updates that addressed some issues. Now, one more update, numbered as 1.2.5, is live on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The update improved the load time optimizations and made backup save UI improvements. Xbox achievements will work properly now, and players will keep their campaign mission reward outfits. Crystal Dynamics also promised that the next major update, update 1.3.0, is coming soon.

The patch notes for the console update are mentioned below. You can check out the complete patch notes from the official site.

Marvel's Avengers Update 1.2.5 PlayStation & Xbox Patch Notes

  • Resolved an infrequent bug where players are unable to progress with the campaign due to an infinite loading screen.    
    • This patch does not resolve the fix for those who have already encountered it – bad save states will be resolved in V1.3.0.     
  • Addressed majority of instances of a partially loaded Helicarrier which resulted in characters infinitely falling out of world when trying to access the Avengers Initiative.     
    • There are rare instances where this could happen still, but the patch ensures that loading back into the main menu and then returning to the Avengers Initiative will resolve it. We are still working to eliminate this bug entirely.      
  • Campaign Mission reward outfits will no longer disappear from Cosmetics Inventory UI. This presented as costumes that were previously unlocked through campaign progress - such as the Stark Tech outfits - reverting to a locked state.     
    • We prevented this from happening in V1.2.5, but the patch does not return outfits for those who have already encountered it – bad save states will be resolved In V1.3.0.     
  • Marketplace and Challenge Card outfits will be restored and no longer become re-locked in the Cosmetics Inventory UI. This presented as costumes that were previously unlocked through online play - such as Hero Challenge Card rewards, pattern drops, and faction vendors - reverting to a locked state   
  • Updated Community Challenge UI that now reflects current community progress.    
  • Backup Save UI improvements   
  • Load time optimizations   
  • Xbox Only: Achievements should now unlock and increment properly. We are still investigating if all Achievements will be granted retroactively – our current theory is that story-based will, but challenge-based will not.
