In the months since Marvel’s Avengers launched in September, the development team has had a lot of work to do to eliminate bugs and improve the overall campaign and online experiences from a technical standpoint. As the title begins to become more stable, it seems now is the time to turn to more system tweaks that will adjust future character progression and change the way players earn additional cosmetics in the future.
The max character level in Marvel’s Avengers is 50 and right now it doesn’t take long for players to get there (especially if they already have another max-level character). This is due to the way XP doesn’t really scale in Marvel’s Avengers. The developers want to change that in the future and really slow down the 25-50 grind. The upcoming changes will not affect characters already at level 50, but all other existing heroes will be affected when the next update launches on March 18.
In a recent blog post, the developers addressed the current XP system and how the upcoming changes will work for players when the March 18 patch arrives …
We’re going to be reworking XP and how to obtain certain cosmetic items starting with the patch on March 18 in an effort to reduce randomness and allow for more choice.

In addition to the XP changes, the development team is also taking a closer look at the cosmetics system and trying to remove some of the randomization from the way it currently works. The goal here is to allow players a bit more control over the cosmetics they’re working on while grinding down the end-game content. Hopefully this will offer additional motivation to keep playing, even during the long breaks between new content releases.
Clint Hawkeye content is right around the corner, along with these other changes, so it will be very interesting to see if all of this is enough to get some players back in the game and help drive new additions to the player base.
More details on Hawkeye’s content should continue to come in the coming weeks as the March 18 release date approaches for its operation and the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game. Until then, be sure to check back frequently. for more Marvel’s Avengers news, guides, and updates.
Marvel’s Avengers is available now for PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One, with the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions arriving on March 18.
