Marvel’s Avengers was released in 2020 with high expectations from the studio. Unfortunately, the game did not achieve significant success. It received mixed reviews upon its initial release, with some praising the story and character development while criticizing specific technical issues.
In January 2023, Crystal Dynamics announced its decision to discontinue support and halt the development of new content for Marvel’s Avengers. As part of this decision, the game will eventually be removed from digital storefronts.
The game is currently being offered at an impressive 90 percent discount off its original price, making it available for approximately $3.99 on various gaming platforms, representing a significant cost reduction.
Why is this important?
Reducing the game’s price to such a low level is highly unusual for a title of this scale. This deep discount is likely to catch the attention of gamers, especially those who may have been on the fence about purchasing the game at its original price.
While customer support for the game will conclude after September 30, players can still enjoy the game even after it is removed from digital storefronts, contingent upon the studio’s decision to deactivate the servers at a later point.
Additionally, gamers can look forward to Limited-Time Events, including the Red Room Takeover, continuing in a recurring two-week cycle. Furthermore, mission chains, rewards, and events that repeat regularly will adhere to their usual schedules for refreshing and updating.
Since its launch, the game struggled to attract and retain a substantial player base, ultimately leading to the studio’s decision to delist it.
The game boasted several positive aspects, such as diverse gameplay mechanics, a compelling story campaign, and even certain components of the multiplayer mode. These positive aspects led to favorable reviews from critics.
However, the inclusion of a somewhat obligatory loot-and-grind gear system is believed to be the key factor that diminished the overall gaming experience, resulting in a decline in player engagement and enjoyment.
