With today’s War Table devstream for Marvel’s Avengers, the studio not only showcased our first look at co-op gameplay, but we even got a look at the game’s main villain, and even a long look at gameplay. Unfortunately, another thing seems to have been revealed today, and it’s not as pleasant as the gameplay we’ve gotten.
Spotted on the PlayStation Store’s listing for the game, which updated recently, it mentions how the game needs a “one-time” online access even for single-player. Check out the full blurb below along with a screenshot in case it gets changed.
*One-time online access required for single-player campaign online access required for multiplayer and to download post-launch content. Free Square Enix Members account required. Platform-specific online subscription fee may be required. Beta will launch on PlayStation®4 seven (7) days prior to other game platforms. Beta release date(s), platform and region availability to be announced
In case you think that’s a PlayStation Store listing error, EB Games’ listing for the title also has it mentioned too!
*One-time online access required for single-player campaign; online access required for multiplayer and to download post-launch content. Free Square Enix Members account required. Platform-specific online subscription fee may be required. Beta release date(s), platform and region availability to be announced.
Finally, the game’s official box art has also been updated to list “Internet Required” as part of it. And yes, it’s also mentioned in the Xbox One version as well.
Check out images of the old and new box art:
While it’s quite rare these days for gamers to not be connected to the internet when gaming, this might prove to be troublesome for people looking to buy Marvel’s Avengers and will be playing it without internet access at all.
Will this affect your decision in getting Marvel’s Avengers or not at all? Let us know your thoughts down below.
