At Square Enix’s E3 2019 press briefing where Marvel’s Avengers was revealed, it was also announced on stage that the game won’t feature loot boxes. Well, it seems, even if that’s the case, the Marvel’s Avengers game microtransactions will still be a thing.
Speaking to IGN, Crystal Dynamics Lead Creative Director Shaun Escayg confirmed this and mentioned that there will be custom outfits that players can purchase via microtransactions. In addition to that, Lead Combat Designer Vincent Napoli also mentioned that there will be “other aesthetic ways” to customize your player card and player experience, though he mentioned that there will be nothing that affects gameplay.

For now, that’s all we know. Crystal Dynamics has already mentioned outfits can be purchased with microtransactions, but that’s the scope of what we know now. Maybe new voice lines, emotes and other stuff are part of the microtransactions packge? Your guess is as good as mine at this point.
Marvel’s Avengers will be out on May 15, 2020 for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
