Marvel's Avengers adds new Klaw raid and PlayStation exclusive Spider-Man on November 30

The next free patch for Marvel’s Avengers is set to arrive on November 30, Square Enix announced today. Patch 2.2 will bring with it a new four-player raid that has players taking on the villain Klaw, as well as the highly anticipated playable Spider-Man content exclusive to PlayStation.

The update also features several improved systems, which include:

  • Shipments – The Shipments feature provides an entirely new path to earn coveted cosmetics, resources, and other items strictly through gameplay, a highly requested option from the Marvel’s Avengers community. Each Shipment costs 500 Units (the currency earned while playing the game) and pulls from a collection of nearly 250 possible items, with a small chance of rewarding a premium Outfit unavailable via any other means of acquisition. But luck isn’t required to get the Outfit; players will automatically receive it after claiming 100 Shipments.
  • Power-Level Increase – The maximum Power Level achievable will increase from 150 to 175. Acquiring the best gear requires players to complete the game’s toughest challenge: the new four-player Klaw Raid: Discordant Sound.
  • Gear Upgrading – Players will be able to recycle gear of a higher power level to upgrade their current gear to match the higher-power level of the consumed item, with few exceptions.

The Spider-Man content includes the Spider-Man: With Great Power Hero Event, where players can experience his story through unlockable challengers. Peter Parker will form tentative friendships with Ms. Marvel and Black Widow as he struggles with the new dynamic of working with a team. Spider-Man’s style of gameplay brings unique movement and combat abilities that can be experienced solo or with friends.
