Marvel’s Avengers is removing purchasable XP boosters from the in-game marketplace


Crystal Dynamics has announced that it will remove Hero’s Catalysts and Fragment Extractors from the Marvel’s Avengers in-game marketplace. The games official Twitter account set out the rationale.

“We apologize for not responding to your concerns about the inclusion of chargeable consumables in the marketplace sooner,” the statement says, they do not offer electricity directly. “

The Hero Catalysts and Fragment Extractors were consumable items that increased XP for characters and accelerated the usual grind in the game. The items can still be earned as normal gameplay rewards and those already earned can still be used.

Marvel’s Avengers was added to Xbox Game Pass for console, cloud, and PC on September 30th. This news was positively received given its potential to attract new players, but the mood quickly deteriorated. The decision to add these consumables to the in-game marketplace last month met with backlash.

Fans noted that the game’s website stated that all content that could be purchased in-game for real money was limited to cosmetics only. Fans thought the inclusion of purchasable XP boosts directly contradicted the statement.

As for the future of Marvel’s Avengers, fans can look forward to the PlayStation-exclusive Spider-Man DLC, which will have its own story and cutscenes.
