Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix recently detailed a content roadmap for Marvel’s Avengers for 2021, and cofirmed that the game will be receiving new skins for playable heroes inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe some time this year. There is a catch, however- the skins won’t be free.
Taking to Twitter via the game’s official page, developer Crystal Dynamics confirmed that the Marvel Cinematic Universe inspired skins, which are coming to the game this Spring, will only be available in the marketplace and will have to be purchased with credits. Credits have to be purchased with real money, all of which is to say that the MCU skins will be locked behind microtransactions.
A Black Panther expansion for Marvel’s Avengers is also in the works, due out later this year. Meanwhile, the Spider-Man DLC will be releasing afterward. Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect launched earlier this month- though it certainly wasn’t anything to write home about.
Marvel’s Avengers is currently available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
To clarify, the outfits inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be available exclusively in the Marketplace for purchase with credits.
