In the past month or so, developer Crystal Dynamics even before the release of Marvel’s Avenger has already begun disclosing the coming add-on content that will hit the title in its post-launch phase. In that, the studio unveiled that Hawkeye will be a new hero sometime in 2021. In addition to that, Spider-Man is also told to be a unique addition to PlayStation 4 & PlayStation 5 owners of the game as well next year.
But now, the team continues by elaborating on the game’s in-game economy and miniscule items that can be unlocked. While the firm has already illustrated how each of the Avengers can be customized alongside the ability to earn new skins and other in-game cosmetics, there will be a battle pass system.
But no, it will not be a singular business model as you would presume. Instead, it will be a specific service for each individual hero that requires money to be put down for. However, the first roster of Heroes will be a freebie offered by the developer at launch, the team tells in a recent blog post.
We’ve activated the premium Hero Challenge Card rewards for all 6 starting heroes at launch, so you can earn and enjoy all content across the 40 tiers for free. When we introduce new Hero Challenge Cards for post-launch heroes, the cost to activate the premium rewards will be 1,000 Credit.
Dissecting how the in-game credits reflect with real-time currency, Crystal Dynamics elaborates by sharing that the 500 credit pack will cost approximately $5.00. So as for the 2,000, 5,000, and 10,000 packs, each will estimate $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00. So for one premium Hero challenge card – expect to pay $10.00. But multiply that by each Hero when the first season ends and you will land at $60.00.
But Crystal Dynamics does clarify each premium Hero character card does reward more than it’s worth. On top of the nameplates, outfits, and emotes, the player will also be provided with credits when progressing through the 40 tiers. Ultimately, it is said to exceed the 1,000 credits value around 12,500 credits in total adding up all offered items. That includes the earned credits to redeem for the next premium Hero character card for next time.
Elsewhere this month, Crystal Dynamics disclosed that the game will not be hitting a stable 60 on PlayStation 4 Pro’s Performance mode. While it is illustrated that the Xbox One X’s version of that cannot either according to users in the beta currently, perhaps the next-gen versions will operate better.
