Marvel's Avengers Teases Black Widow's Red Room DLC

Marvel's Avengers fans can expect to see more content coming to the game sometime this spring. Developer Crystal Dynamics is teasing that the game's upcoming Red Room Takeover event will see animated nameplates, a HARM room hacked by Yelena Bolova, and "more secrets to decrypt." However, the element that should be most interesting to fans is the addition of skins based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The developer has not gone into specific detail about which skins are on the way, but for those that have been eagerly waiting for more new looks for the game's heroes, this should be welcome news!

The tease for the Red Room Takeover event can be found in the Tweet embedded below.

While reception to Marvel's Avengers has been a bit mixed since its release, it seems that Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix plan to support the game with a lot of new content throughout 2021. The Red Room Takeover and MCU skins were individually listed on the game's roadmap, which was released earlier this month. However, the roadmap covers through summer and beyond, so it wasn't clear where the skins would appear. Now fans have a better idea of when they can expect these new designs.

Unfortunately, a concrete release date has yet to be revealed for the Red Room Takeover, so fans will just have to be patient to see what the future holds! This month just saw the release of the Clint Barton version of Hawkeye, alongside a new story. The game also received a free upgrade for next-gen consoles, giving it a significant boost on PS5 and Xbox Series X. That content should keep players busy for a bit, but the future definitely looks bright for the game!
