Patch 1.3.1 has been released for Marvel’s Avengers and addresses a handful of large issues.

Smaller than last week’s patch, it includes a fix for Marvel Avengers players being unable to accept Faction Missions/Villain Sectors.

Because this bug prevented players from being able to earn specific rare rewards, the team at Crystal Dynamics is granting the following to all players:  250 Polychoron and 500 Uru.

These rewards can be claimed from today until Thursday, October 1 at 10am PDT. You will need to view one of your Challenge Cards to activate this reward.

Other changes include Captain America can now smash through doors,  improved responsiveness when entering sprint flight from jumping as Iron Man, improved responsiveness for light air hammer attacks as Thor, and more.

The full patch notes are below.
