In July 2021, Marvel’s Avengers will permanently allow for players to play as the same heroes as others.
The Marvel’s Avengers team shared the news in a Roadmap Update blog, also confirming that this much-requested feature will become a staple of the game during matchmaking and when forming Strike Teams alongside Multiplayer Mega Hives and Omega Level Threat: Family Reunion in July.
It was also announced that Patrol Mode has been moved past August’s War for Wakanda Expansion.
Prior to this update and the limited-time Tachyon Rift Missions, players were unable to form a team with multiple of one hero. This meant that if you and a friend both wanted to play as Iron Man, you would be out of luck.
Speaking of the War for Wakanda Expansion that will bring Black Panther into Marvel’s Avengers with a brand new story, this update reassured fans that it is still on track for August and that the team’s current focus is finishing that and improving end-game content for players.
