Marvel's Avengers v2.5.1 Update Live With Patch Notes

A new Marvel's Avengers update is live alongside patch notes straight from developer on the game, Crystal Dynamics. According to Crystal Dynamics, the update largely focuses on refining the game's new character, Jane Foster, aka The Mighty Thor. In addition, there are "some minor stability fixes and improvements. What the update doesn't have is any new NSFW content like a recent update nor any new content in general, which may not be coming until the game's next character.

While we have the patch notes for the update, we don't have any information about what the various file sizes across Google Stadia, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.  In other words, we have no information on how long the update may take to download. 

Below, you can check out the patch notes for yourself, in their entirety, courtesy of Crystal Dynamics:
