Crystal Dynamics has released the Marvel’s Avengers update 1.000.017 June 23 patch today, and this is for the major security issue wherein players’ IP addresses were shown on screen for everyone to see! This patch isn’t available on PS4, and is not to be confused with yesterday’s Cosmic Cube Event update that brought in the security issue.
Marvel’s Avengers Update 1.000.017 June 23 Patch Notes:
Here’s the announcement from the studio yesterday:
We are currently testing a solution to the issue of personal information, including the player’s IP address and username, being displayed on screen on PS5 and plan to deploy a hotfix tomorrow at around 8AM PT.
PlayStation 5 players should refrain from streaming or posting screenshots online until then as sensitive information may be displayed.
As you can guess from the timing now, yes, the patch is out and is a small download. Hopefully, this doesn’t bring in any new issues. If there are other gameplay-related changes or technical fixes included in this patch, we’ll be sure to update the post to reflect it.
