Avengers dev confident PC players will “return to the game” for new content

Square Enix's Avengers game has been out for a little over a month, but it appears that players are already bored. A glance at the new superhero game's Reddit page reveals as much with complaints about bugs and a lack of variety noticeable. It seems particularly true among PC players, too. Many weren't in a great mood when they found that Spider-Man and a heap of other goodies would be exclusive to PS4. The frustration and boredom seem somewhat reflected in the numbers, too. SteamDB reveals that the game peaked at 31,165 concurrent players about a month ago, but is now sitting at around 2,039. Developer Crystal Dynamics is all too aware, it seems. Kotaku reached out to the developer and got a lengthy reply from studio head Scot Amos. He explains that a bevvy of new updates will be coming in the following few weeks. There will be a new War Zone mission called Tachyon Rifts, a new outpost that'll serve as a jumping-off point for new story missions, and AIM's Cloning Lab. The last one will require some coordinated, high-level gameplay from a group of four players. There will be "top-end" loot for beating it, too.
