If you own a copy of the game, every Outfit, Wipe, Emote, and Nameplate purchased from the Marketplace, Challenge Cards, and Shipments will be free for all players from this date.
Giving away the full library of Marketplace cosmetic content is our way of saying thank you to our community by allowing everyone to experience the breadth and depth of content in Marvel’s Avengers.
We know this is disappointing news because everyone in our community has such a connection to these characters and their stories. We are very, very grateful that you are coming on this adventure with us. Your excitement for Marvel’s Avengers – from your epic Photo Mode shots, to your threads theorizing who our next Heroes will be, to your Twitch streams – played a huge part in making this game happen.
We hope you will continue to play and enjoy Marvel’s Avengers. We can’t thank you enough for your support and being part of our super team.
