Marvel’s Avengers: Bugs, issues, and other known problems


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.
