The Marvel's Avengers 1.31 update has arrived and it brings with it many fixes and some cool new features, one of which is the ability for Captain America to break down doors.

Marvel's Avengers has had a bit of a rocket start, but the developers have been hard at work to rectify many of the problems. They've also been adding some new features and content for players to enjoy, and one of those new features comes from community suggestions.

What's New in the Marvel's Avengers 1.31 Update?

Before we even get into the big changes, the developers have acknowledged that some of the issues with the game thus far may have caused players to miss out on rewards. As a result, they'll be granting 250 Polychoron and 500 Uru to all players as an apology. You can claim these rewards from now until Thursday, October 1, 2020, at 1:00 PM EDT by viewing one of your Challenge Cards.


Outside of that, one of the coolest new features is a change to Captain America. The community suggested that he should be able to smash down doors with his shield, so Crystal Dynamics did exactly that.

The vast majority of this patch, however, is fixing bugs and tuning combat. Aside from various crash and stability fixes, the developers have also nailed down some of the rarer issues; as an example, selecting "Once an Avenger" could rarely send players to the wrong mission by mistake.

Many of the issues fixed in this patch also relate to rewards. Issues surrounding weekly missions, Villain Sectors, and daily requestions have been resolved, so players should more consistently get the stuff they're supposed to be earning by completing content.

These are just the highlights from the long list of fixes in this update; you can read all of the details in the Marvel's Avengers 1.31 update patch notes. If you haven't already jumped into the game, you can buy Marvel's Avengers via its official website starting at $59.99 or your regional equivalent.

What do you think of the Marvel's Avengers 1.31 update? Does the bonus Polychoron and Uru make up for the game's problems in its first few weeks? Let us know in the comments below!

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
