Despite much anticipation for Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics‘ Marvel’s Avengers, the third-person action game had a rather lackluster release, plagued with countless bugs that drove players away. Now, in order to make the experience more playable and hopefully enjoyable, its developers have released its first major patch, fixing more than a whopping 1,000 bugs.

The updates include everything from art and animation glitches like Captain America’s now infamous facial expressions to various problems encountered during different stages in campaign modes such as holes in level geometry or enemies simply being stuck behind doors. Crystal Dynamics also reviewed the game’s multiplayer and matchmaking experience, shortening cool down times after you leave a strike team from 30 seconds to just four seconds, and enabling matchmaking to continue even when the mission launch countdown has begun to give players more time to join sessions.

“While the focus of this patch was resolving bugs, future near-term patches will integrate more quality-of-life adjustments and feedback-driven features/tuning,” the Crystal Dynamics team said in its patch notes. “We can’t thank you enough for your patience and support. Please keep it coming; you are helping shape the future of Marvel’s Avengers.”

Marvel’s Avengers is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC.

Elsewhere in gaming, BlizzConline 2021 has officially been announced.
