Marvel Ultimate Alliance DLC Will Be Free, PC Patch Out Now

by Mike Futter on Aug 02, 2016 at 11:09 AM

Activision has broken its silence on the disappointing Marvel Ultimate Alliance ports. As Marvel Games promised, the DLC is en route and a PC patch has been deployed.

The PC patch addresses a number of issues. These include:

  • Controller mapping improvements that address both Xbox One and Xbox 360 buttons, triggers, and a problem specifically with the A button
  • General improvements to audio and fixes for the crackling sounds
  • Improvements to player invitations for Marvel Ultimate Alliance
  • UI updates and fixes for desync/disconnection issues when playing online

DLC should be out in the coming weeks for Ultimate Alliance on all three platforms (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC). The additional characters are already included in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. This will be a free update. We’ll update when it’s available.


Our Take
While these are things that should have been caught in quality assurance, I’m glad they are getting fixed. I can’t say for sure that Marvel Games stepping in facilitated this, but fans can feel better knowing that the comic giant is watching and listening.
