The dev group has recovered some floor within the time since its launch, placing out a number of expansions, new characters, in addition to beauty add-ons pulled straight out of the MCU.
However a brand new drawback has sprung up for the sport that has Crystal Dynamics providing an fascinating answer.
Delete Your Marvel’s Avengers Save
