Marvel’s Avengers gets paid XP boosters and not everyone is happy about it

Marvel’s Avengers is still dragging badly on Steam—its average concurrent player count over the past 30 days is just barely above 800—but the recent addition to Xbox Game Pass has given it a real boost on other platforms. That’s not terribly surprising: People are generally a lot more likely to play a free game than one that costs $40, after all.

But instead of the bump in goodwill you might expect, a good portion of the player community is very unhappy. The problem is that shortly after the Game Pass appearance, Square Enix began selling consumable XP boosters in the game, ranging in price from 100 to 500 credits. A pack of 500 credits sells for $5.

There are two main reasons that players are upset by this. First, developers increased the grind—that is, slowed the levelling process—in March, and second, it contradicts a promise the studio made in June 2019 that Marvel’s Avengers “won’t have random loot boxes or pay to win scenarios.”
