Marvel’s Avengers: PlayStation 5 Users Are Out Of Luck!

Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal has made such a huge mistake that they have to address the issue throughout the day.


Square Enix‘ live service game that launched last year (without much fanfare) recently got a patch that affects the PlayStation 5 quite badly. The issue is so serious that the Japanese publisher outright doesn’t recommend the players on this platform to stream the game or use the console’s internal screenshot sharing feature. Ouch.

They asked such a thing because the game (due to the update) reveals the players’ IP addresses! On Twitter, Forbes’ Paul Tassi confirmed that Marvel’s Avengers displays the IP address on the screen, and when he added that it’s one of the worst bugs he has ever heard of, we can’t argue with that! He included an image that shows the leak, with understandable censorship:

Square Enix had to respond to it as quick as possible, and here’s their comment on Twitter: „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 PlayStation 5 and plan to deploy a hotfix tomorrow at around 8 AM PT. PlayStation 5 players should refrain from streaming or posting screenshots online until then as sensitive information may be displayed.” So the patch should pup on the PlayStation Network in a few hours. If it shows up, install it (unless you use a VPN for your console).

The top reply to it is pretty rough on the game: „You fixed the leaked skin bug within the hour, but when it doesn’t affect microtransactions, you take your time.” And we can explain why such a feature exists in the game. In pre-release testing, having such info displayed is reasonable, as this would identify anyone who dared to leak any material.

Until then, we share our heads.
