Crystal Dynamics’ latest update for Marvel’s Avengers is now live and introduces a new Villain Sector where players take on AIM’s Monica and the Cosmic Cube. It’s been received decently enough thus far but the update seems to have introduced a rather nasty bug – displaying your IP address onscreen. The issue is affecting PlayStation 5 players only but is still pretty wild.

It essentially means that anyone streaming the game online is opening themselves up to potential doxxing. The game’s official Twitter has acknowledged the issue, noting that a hotfix is planned for tomorrow at 8 AM PT. In the meantime, if you’re streaming the game or looking to share media from it, you should hold off.

Such a big mistake comes in the wake of Marvel’s Avengers kicking off a range of updates until the arrival of War for Wakanda in August, which introduces Black Panther as a new hero. This includes Patrol Mode where players can venture the Wasteland and take on random bosses and Assignments along with War Zones. Stay tuned for more details on tomorrow’s hotfix in the meantime.
