Spider-Man Swings Onto One Platform
Marvel’s Avengers has been having a rough time lately. Well, I say lately, but really, it has been having a rough time since it launched. This latest update might bring some PlayStation players back since they get to try out Spider-Man, one of the most popular heroes of all time. Everyone else gets a new raid, but that sure isn’t Spider-Man. Spider-Man and the Klaw Raid is set to launch on November 30.
The new Klaw Raid will have players, unsurprisingly, go up against the villain Klaw. It serves as another reason to get four people together to tackle a difficult challenge. Klaw has returned to the Vibranium Mound with the hope of destroying Wakanda, and you have to stop him.
The update also brings several new and improved systems:
- Shipments – The Shipments feature provides an entirely new path to earn coveted cosmetics, resources, and other items strictly through gameplay, a highly requested option from the Marvel’s Avengers community. Each Shipment costs 500 Units (the currency earned while playing the game) and pulls from a collection of nearly 250 possible items, with a small chance of rewarding a premium Outfit unavailable via any other means of acquisition. But luck isn’t required to get the Outfit; players will automatically receive it after claiming 100 Shipments.
- Power-Level Increase – The maximum Power Level achievable will increase from 150 to 175. Acquiring the best gear requires players to complete the game’s toughest challenge: the new four-player Klaw Raid: Discordant Sound.
- Gear Upgrading – Players will be able to recycle gear of a higher power level to upgrade their current gear to match the higher-power level of the consumed item, with few exceptions.
The new Spider-Man storyline will have Peter Parker working with the Avengers to stop AIM from getting their evil hands on some technology to make their robot army stronger. He will form friendships with Ms. Marvel and Black Widow as he tries to keep his identity a secret and learn to work with a team.
I understand that Sony owns Spider-Man, but Marvel’s Avengers honestly shouldn’t have messed with him at all if he was going to be exclusive to one platform. The game is already struggling, and this is just likely to alienate more players as they don’t have access to Spider-Man.
