Marvel’s Avengers has had a tumultuous life cycle since it was released last year. Crystal Dynamics’ next trick for the hybrid live service-action-RPG is to bring it to Xbox Game Pass along with all of its expansion content. The move itself proved to be a bit of a shock given that the game just saw the release of its War for Wakanda expansion.
Crystal Dynamics Community Coordinator Hunter Wolfe detailed the announcement in an article for Xbox Wire:
Every player with an Xbox Game Pass membership can experience the full game and all our post-launch Heroes and missions. This includes four story campaigns that showcase one or more Hero’s unique abilities, as well as our Avengers Initiative – our evolving online multiplayer world that lets you and three friends play as any Hero in our roster and embark on global adventures.
Whether this decision bodes well or signals the end of Marvel’s Avengers still remains to be seen. Crystal Dynamics is likely hoping that its addition onto Game Pass is for a bresh of fresh air to one of their biggest titles and not the final nail in the coffin.
Marvel’s Avengers makes its way to Xbox Game Pass on September 30th for console, cloud, and PC.
