Marvel's Avengers was September's best-selling game, but now the multiplayer-focused hit is struggling to stay afloat. What can Crystal Dynamics do to bring players back in?

  • Have you played any Marvel's Avengers co-op?

  • tbh they should stop selling the game and remake the game. the game had so much Potential but now it’s just a disappointment....

  • The Avengers name CARRIED the game to number 7. This game needs a ton of fixes. They should do that during the delay.

  • no not loving the game, right now, it has gotten worse stale and repetitive,, boring now and it hasn’t even been out that long, its a bummer of being yescim bummmed i bought the full game, i should have waited to buy it

  • None of this will save the game it is fundamentally broken. The one thing I need it to be successful or at least one of the major components needed to be successful is the end game and it’s broken Not only that but the overall look system is broken. We keep telling games who want to function as a game as a service to look at some of the positive examples what el Diablo did things. Look at how borderlands handle things.

  • I think its ok game. Could have been better yes. There is just a lack of stuff to do in general. If the gameplay is repetitive, atleast make the rewards worthwhile. Make new game modes, alot more customization, more heroes, more everything rly.

  • 2020 was awesome with games? When?

    Tsuki Ōkami-samaTsuki Ōkami-samaPred 8 dnevi
  • This was a garbage video, first of all. I don't think anyone should be surprised by the loss of concurrent players.. They combined genres that have no business being together. A game that should be almost entirely focused on story, is instead stretched thin by characters with limited button input, very little difficult scaling, and a very unappealing gear system will net you exactly this, and the b-list Hawkeye, who's already kind of b-list, isn't going to save it sadly.

    michael11vgmichael11vgPred 8 dnevi

    mike koreanmike koreanPred 8 dnevi
  • So they’re literally blaming the players for why they’re slowing down an already slow stream of content for a mediocre game.

  • Honestly even The Amazing Spider-man 2 videogame is more fun to play than this game

    Crazy PersonCrazy PersonPred 8 dnevi
  • The game needed more polishing, mechanics is unfinished,repetitive gameplay,strike impact is awful feels like touching your enemies rather than actuall hitting and story could have been a lot better

    King KingKing KingPred 8 dnevi
  • This should serve as another example that you should NEVER released an unfinished game, where you only get a fraction of the actual main-story with a repetitive soulless multiplayer attached to it. Obviously I'm comparing it to Anthem.

    Muhammad-Amin JacobsMuhammad-Amin JacobsPred 8 dnevi
  • Marvel's Anthem haha. They should have just made a new Marvel Heroes Omega game.

  • I mean the combat is alright however I must admit it is sooooooo repetitive and with all these bugs and content delays why release the game in this state should’ve just released it straight on ps5 got feels rushed also I bet this won’t be the only dlc delay and also this could delay Hawkeye dlc smh

  • Just by looking at the release it looks boring and repetitive. Kill robots galore

    Christopher SullivanChristopher SullivanPred 9 dnevi
  • I only play the game solo and while the bot AI could stand for more improvements they make for decent support and they’re on the money when you need reviving. I’m still grinding away getting every hero fully maxed out and yes it’s a grind. I’m also one trophy away from the platinum playing it on my PS4 PRO and this last trophy to complete 50 Hives will take me some time. I’m looking forward to the new hero, Kate Bishop to be added to the game and disappointed her appearance has been delayed to next month. It might be hard for this game to hold my attention in November with new consoles being released and a bunch of new top level games. November will be a packed month and also a wallet buster.

  • Coming from a huge marvel fan,buyer of the special edition of this game., and a long time gamer, this game really disappointed me. It's extremely repetitive. At this point it's not even rewarding to play. It's like walking a hamster wheel. The fact that the creators have me waiting for dlc including the spiderman character I was promised, really turns me off. As a player, I would rather play another game like apex or something cause it feels more fun than this repetitive and unfinished game. These delay give the the vibe that they are drying out of ideas. And it hurts me to say this cause I really loved the concepts and the potential they had. They just don't know what to do with it. First of all,why release a new character that people rarely know? I would of rather had flint barton instead.

  • The combat system is where the game really shines and graphics however they need to come up with more creative and different mission types. Like chasing missions, saving civilians, stealth, all out war and one single hero missions. It doesn't matter how much new content they release if they don't fix the structure of the game. People will only play the new content and get bored the next week. I really love the game and to be able to play with my favorite childhood super heroes feels nostalgic and awesome. But the developers should take advantage of the huge potential the game has to create a masterpiece.

  • Man honestly video like this make me actually want to watch IGN content. Like, I understand there’s a lot of toxicity in the gaming community so bigger outlets try to stay away from that, but then you end up never saying anything negative about anything and it comes off disingenuous (BTW it’s not just IGN, KindaFunny & Gameranx are also guilty of this). You gotta call a spade a spade though man.

  • This looked like a thoughtful editorial on why the Disney film Avengers Endgame doesn't work without new content. Instead it's a lackadaisical report on a Crystal Dynamic blog.

  • I’d rather them release the new characters with no bugs, rather than release it now and it’s broken/buggy. At a restaurant, do you want an undercooked steak in 15 mins then have to send it back and wait another 25/30 mins for them to cook you a new one, or wait 30 mins for a perfectly cooked steak?
