Avengers patch 1.3.1 fixes Villain Sectors, offers resources as apology

Avengers continues to improve (thankfully).

Avengers patch 1.3.1 was released yesterday, fixing issues including bugged Villain Sector access and also offered up in-game resources as an apology of sorts.

The patch has corrected an issue whereby players couldn’t add daily Villain Sectors to their objectives, making it difficult to earn resources needed to improve gear. Completing 15 Sectors also unlocks an in-game Achievement or Trophy.

As an apology for preventing access to previous Villain Sectors, Crystal Dynamics has also gifted 250 Polychoron and 500 Uru to players for their trouble. Players have until 1 October to claim their resources, and while it was said you’d need to open up an in-game Challenge Card to do so, we found the resources credited to us right at login.

Outside of the Villain Sector patch, Captain America can now use his strength to bust down doors that house chests or captives.

Full patch notes are below.
