Marvel's Avengers September 24 Update Released, Patch Notes Revealed

A new Marvel's Avengers update is live on PS4, and will soon be live on Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. And to accompany the release of the update, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have released the update's official patch notes, revealing all of the new content, changes, improvements, and fixes being made to the game via the update. And as you as can see via the patch notes below, the update is pretty meaty.

The highlight of the update is likely Captain America's new ability, which is that he can now smash through doors. Meanwhile, Villain Sectors are also obtainable again. Beyond this, there's nothing super noteworthy coming with the update, but there's a lot of smaller changes, fixes, and improvements. For example, the honing missile has been fixed. Not a game-changing fix, but an appreciable one.
