We’re keeping track as things are patched, and new issues are discovered.
Marvel’s Avengers is available to play, and as players are making their way through the story and side missions, a fair few bugs and glitches are being noticed. We noted in our Marvel’s Avengers review that the game was buggy at launch, and we’re hoping that Crystal Dynamics will be on top of those fixes, but there are a lot of issues, which makes sense with a game that wants to do as much as this one does.
These are some of the issues that the team is currently working on via the subreddit. Others are reported by players.
- “House Call” mission can’t be completed.
- Infrequent infinite loading screens.
- Community challenges not updating in real-time.
- Credits sometimes don’t appear.
- Previewing skins can freeze the game.
- Characters freeze and can’t move until being hit.
- Loading screen image gets “stuck” on screen.
- Frequent crashes – (PC only)
Issues we’ve had
- Infinite loading screens, along with some generally slow loading.
- Issue with fabrication machine mentioned above.
- Game needs to be rebooted following crashed loading screens.
- Textures don’t load in immediately.
- Some enemies appear invisible during combat.
- Audio cues don’t load in.
- Audio cues repeat (the now infamous “Seriously, you’re the best” repeat).
- Character duplication and swaps during late-game Golden Gate Bridge sequence.
