Marvel's Avengers free rewards released as apology for troubled launch

Square Enix has been working on fixing some serious issues in Marvel's Avengers, all while players count kept plummeting in September. Now, the developers have finally released a big new update for the game, and with it, comes an apology as well as some free rewards.

Marvel's Avengers free rewards: How to get

One of the issues players have been experiencing is how they were unable to accept Villian Sectors and Faction Missions. This has led to players not being able to receive some rare rewards. 

Right at the top of the latest Marvel's Avengers patch notes (v1.3.1), Square Enix apologized for the inconvenience this bug has caused, stating: "We recognize and apologize that this bug prevented players from being able to earn specific rare rewards."
