Marvel’s Avengers appeared to come back out to the mildest of shrugs from gamers, however there’s nonetheless new DLC on the way in which in Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect. Forward of its arrival on March 18th, the builders have detailed some modifications coming to the bottom recreation – together with substantial reworks to the way it dishes out XP and cosmetics. In short: levelling goes to take longer.
As defined in a publish on the sport’s web site, the present XP curve “is not actually a curve in any respect” however a straight line. “This has led to pacing points, comparable to ability factors at present being rewarded too quick, which can be complicated and overwhelming to newer gamers. We wish every choice to spend money on a ability or Heroic to be extra significant.”
They’re due to this fact growing the quantity of XP wanted to stage up after “round stage 25”. The quantity required will proceed to extend as you progress in direction of the extent 50 cap. The change will not have an effect on already levelled characters, simply new characters you are attempting to stage after the replace on March 18th.
The identical replace is bringing modifications to cosmetics, to attempt to introduce extra participant option to gathering objects you need. Once more, gamers will not lose something already earned, however beauty objects that may beforehand be unlocked by way of random drops will in future be purchaseable with an in-game foreign money from the beauty vendor.
Was making progress slower the key to creating the sport extra gratifying? Video games want friction to drive gamers in direction of fascinating selections, however I’ve no sense of how it will change the texture of the sport. Actually, I am unsure I am into the concept of getting to stage up superheroes in any respect – it appears counter to their very idea.
Future Imperfect will add Clint “Hawkeye” Barton as a playable character to Marvel’s Avengers, after he was first launched as an ally alongside a playable Kate Bishop within the earlier replace, Taking AIM. It’s going to be launched on March 18th.
