Marvel’s Avengers releases on September 4th and Square Enix revealed that the game will receive a massive 18GB Day-1 Update. According to the team, this update will be applied automatically to the game. This basically means that this patch will be part of the final digital version that will be available on Steam.
According to the dev team, the Day One Patch will include several updates and refinements. Additionally, the patch includes localization files for the game’s dialogue for 15 different languages. Furthermore, it will include lots of fixes, feedback, updates, and tuning from its Beta weekends.
As Square Enix noted:
“Over the last three weekends, millions of you have played the game for tens of millions of hours and killed hundreds of millions of AIM enemies. Your participation has been of immense value to us as we work to squash bugs, tune performance, and finalize game balance. We hope you will see and feel it when you play the final game.”
My guess is that the team won’t be able to address the game’s optimization issues when using 4K resolutions. Moreover, the team has not announced whether it plans to add support for NVIDIA’s DLSS tech. And, to be honest, this is a game that desperately needs some DLSS treatment.
Lastly, the game will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech at launch.
