Marvel’s Avengers Patch 2.4 Updates How Event Rewards Work

Marvel's Avengers Iron Man Jetboost

Square Enix and developer Crystal Dynamics continue to tinker away on Marvel’s Avengers, the online-focused third-person superhero adventure set adjacent to the world’s most popular movie franchise. While Avengers can’t claim that title in the world of games, there is a dedicated fanbase returning week after week to smash up AIM robots as their favorite heroes. To that end, Crystal Dynamics has revealed a few tweaks to how their limited-time events reward players, giving options for both the weekend warriors and those who just can’t get enough.

Starting with the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers patch 2.4, each event will have three different mission chains that players can take part in, each offering a different level of reward. Daily Mission Chains reward playing on each day of a two-week happening, while Minor MIssion Chains offer hero-specific rewards that can increase power levels effortlessly. Finally, Meta Mission Chains are the most rewarding, combining the missions from the other two chains and dropping some of the most powerful loot available in the game. These mission chains will be available starting with the Tachyon Anomaly event on May 26 and continue onto future events going forward.

In their post about the rework, the developers mention that they wanted to standardize event rewards so players knew exactly what they were getting into. By giving players a specific type of reward each time but also theming those rewards around the specific events, they can keep the theming of the prior model intact while also letting players plan out their superheroics with ease.

Dedicated Marvel’s Avengers aficionados will have plenty to do in the weeks ahead, and they have plenty to be excited about in the next patch. Following this event rework, Patch 2.5 will introduce Jane Foster as The Mighty Thor to the game’s playable roster. Aligning with the upcoming release of Thor: Love and Thunder to theaters, this female Thor will be another opportunity to gather loot and power up through the game’s various mission chains and story beats.

Weird West Gets Free Content Updates, Community Events

Weird West Gets Free Content Updates, Community Events

It may not look like that sort of game, but it’s been announced Weird West will be treated to some free content updates and community events in the coming months. The first is an event called The Plague, with a content pack, Nimpossible Mode, the Caged Ones event, and mods to follow. The roadmap then confirms there’ll be even “more to come”.

These community events are only available for a limited time according to the YouTube description. “Reports are rolling in from across the Weird West of a plague of undead rising from the grave! Worse, a terrible sickness seems to follow in their wake. Stay sharp, travelers.” Footage depicts pools of blood and zombies across the western setting, so it looks like the undead has taken over ala Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare.

In our Weird West PS4 review, we praised its combat, player freedom, and story. Accompanied by a 7/10 rating, we concluded: “Immersive sim fans will be in their element here, but Raphael Colantonio’s latest won’t have as wide an appeal as his previous successes with Arkane.”

Marvel Updates Matt Murdock’s On-Screen Report, Confirms ‘Daredevil’ Events Are MCU Canon

Marvel Updates Matt Murdock’s On-Screen Report, Confirms ‘Daredevil’ Events Are MCU Canon

In a move that many fans of the Man Without Fear have been waiting for, Marvel has updated the official on-screen report for Matt Murdock (Daredevil) located here.

After Charlie Cox reprised his role as Matt Murdock in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home in a brief cameo, fans began to question whether this was the same Matt we’d seen in the former Netflix series, or if this was a “variant” of the character. The updates to the report have finally given fans a definitive answer as to whether or not the events of Daredevil are canon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and thankfully that answer is yes, and that we are seeing the same Matt Murdock we’ve always seen (just not the Ben Affleck version, thankfully).

Following a description of the final events of season 3 of Daredevil, where Matt attends the funeral for Father Lantom, makes amends with Sister Maggie, and reconciles with Foggy and Karen, the report now continues on:

– Advertisement –

“Sometime later, Matt was hired as an attorney to defend Peter Parker, as Peter had been publicly outed as Spider-Man and accused of Mysterio’s murder. Though Peter was legally cleared of any wrongdoing, Matt warned him he’d still have to face the court of public opinion and advised Harold “Happy” Hogan to hire a good lawyer. As if on cue, a protestor threw a brick through the window of the Parkers’ apartment in support of Mysterio. Fortunately, due to his heightened senses, Matt was able to catch the brick before it hurt anyone inside. When Peter asked him how he was able to do that, Matt claimed it was because he was a really good lawyer and left it at that.”

While these updates clearly confirm that we are seeing the same Daredevil we always have and that the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home do definitively take place after Daredevil season 3 chronologically, it does raise the question of whether or not Daredevil’s Defenders teammates are also considered canon to the MCU. Hopefully Marvel can and will provide fans an answer to that burning question soon.

These updates are likely not to be the last to come to Matt Murdock’s on-screen report as he is expected to make future appearances in the MCU as well, including a rumored appearance in She-Hulk which is slated to release later this year. Additionally, the rumor mill has been circulating for some time now that some sort of Daredevil reboot is in the works from Marvel studios, which you can read more about here.

Daredevil is now available to stream on its new home, Disney+, along with the other former-Netflix series. Spider-Man: No Way Home is available for digital purchase now, and will release on physical media on April 12.

SLC updates event sanctioning process

SLC updates event sanctioning process

Earlier this year, the Student Life Centre (SLC) announced clubs are no longer required to submit event sanctioning forms to book booths in the Queen’s center.

In Fall 2021, the AMS implemented mandatory event sanctioning forms for both in-person and online events due to the pandemic.

“At the beginning of the last semester, we were under the guidance of no in-person activities happening at all,” Jane Ford, SLC operations and sustainability assistant manager, said in an interview with The Journal.

SLC’s updated policy now only requires students to submit a booking request on their website, followed by an agreement to a safety plan.

Aside from updating booking policies, the SLC has also changed their pricing system through three categories: student, community, and corporate.

“The lowest pricing is called ‘students,’” Summer Chen, SLC head manager said in an interview with The Journal.

The student category is reserved for clubs and other on-campus organizations. In support of Kingston and local businesses, Ford said the community category has reduced its pricing rate by 10 per cent.

With some negative responses to the events sanctioning process last semester, Chen said she understood the “challenges” that were faced by student clubs.

“Looking at the bigger picture, I think [those were] the protocols that we needed to take to ensure that our students [and] community are safe,” Chen said.

“It’s our step to ensure that we are taking responsibilities for our students and also even [for the] broader Kingston community.”

Ford encouraged students to go to the SLC with any questions on events sanctioning.

“Our staff are really knowledgeable about all the policies right now,” Ford said. “Any student who has questions about university policies, […] we’re a resource for them.”

The SLC is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, seven days a week.

Olympics Live Updates: Mikaela Shiffrin Is Disqualified, Again, in Her Final Solo Event

Olympics Live Updates: Mikaela Shiffrin Is Disqualified, Again, in Her Final Solo Event

All through the Beijing Games, the unchecked swagger of Canada’s women’s hockey team had been conspicuous for all to see — and to admire, fume over and fear.

There were the humiliations of the teams that would play for the bronze medal, the edgy digs at rivals, the nuanced critiques of the failed strategies to score on Ann-Renée Desbiens, the goaltender who made the Canadian crease a fortress.

The Canadians proved Thursday that all of it was justified: They overpowered the United States in the gold medal game, 3-2, and reclaimed the Olympic crown that the Americans had wrested away four years ago.

United States

Canada’s victory was a display of strong-armed, swarming play, blended with a few doses of luck and an angsty, furious drive that started with the Olympic loss in 2018.

The outcome was one that the Canadians had tiptoed toward predicting. To them, a gold medal often seemed less about redemption and more about simply meeting a ceaselessly high standard.

“We’ve been playing so well that when we do play our way — and not focus on other teams or focus on who we’re playing — we are unstoppable,” said Natalie Spooner, a forward on her third Canadian Olympic team.

Canada appeared to strike about seven minutes into Thursday’s game, when the American goaltender Alex Cavallini deflected a puck and saw Spooner sweep it in with a powerful shot. The United States, though, challenged that Canada had been offside, an assessment the officials upheld.

“I owe you one,” Spooner said her teammate Sarah Nurse told her on the bench. “I was offside.”

Thirty-five seconds later, the goal arrived: After Canada won a face-off, Nurse took a pass, spun and scored.

Canada doubled its lead later in the period on a shot by Marie-Philip Poulin, the Canadian captain who was playing in her fourth Games, and pushed it to 3-0 when Poulin scored again midway through the second.

Hilary Knight scored a short-handed goal for the United States late in the second, promising that the Americans would at least avoid the indignity of being shut out when a gold medal was for the taking.

A power-play goal with 13 seconds to play made the final score close. By then, though, the Canadian team knew its victory was assured.

So did the Americans.

“We wanted to just get a lot of pucks in there and actually have a lot of bodies, and I don’t think we did enough of a great job of that,” U.S. forward Abby Roque said.

Thursday’s spectacle was familiar ground, the sixth gold medal game between Canada and the United States since women’s hockey became an Olympic sport in 1998. The United States captured the first Olympic title but not another until 2018, when it won a game decided by a shootout that was seen, at least in Canada, as an aberration, not a harbinger of a power shift.

Many of the meetings leading to Thursday’s game suggested as much. The Canadians won a preliminary round game in Beijing, 4-2, and posted a 4-2 record in a series of pre-Olympic exhibition games in North America.

The teams were the unquestioned titans of the Games. Entering Thursday, Canada had scored 54 goals, an Olympic tournament record, and had three women — Brianne Jenner, Sarah Fillier and Jamie Lee Rattray — among the five top scorers in Beijing.

The United States had logged two shutout wins, and had twice defeated Finland, which won the bronze medal on Wednesday night.

Led by Kendall Coyne Schofield, the captain and one of the world’s fastest skaters, and Knight, who on Thursday set the American record for most games played by a women’s hockey player at the Olympics, the United States possessed a fearsome attack that forced rival goalies to confront a storm of shots through the tournament.

But the Americans struggled again on Thursday to turn chances into goals. At the same time, they found a Canadian squad eager — and able — to score quickly. In the first period, Canada tied the United States for shots, with 11, a marked shift from their last meeting, when the Americans had 16 attempts in the first and the Canadians managed only five.

The United States eventually outpaced Canada in shots again, calling to mind the Canadian judgment after their first meeting that the Americans were all too happy to try to overwhelm opponents with a barrage of shots that were not always good ones.

Still, it was a strategy that worked for most of the Games. But as time faded on Thursday, with the Americans scrambling to a final soundtrack of clacking and hitting and emptying their net with more than three minutes to play, it was clear which team had shown itself to be the better one.

Just as Canada had long asserted that it would.
