Developer Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix have announced a new update for their comic-book epic Marvel’s Avengers. Dropping on March 18, the new patch will decelerate the amount of XP delivered to the player, slowing down the progression of each individual character and making it a tad longer to assemble Avengers.

In a statement on its official blog, Crystal Dynamics stated that the reason behind this move was to prevent players with being overrun with skill points and attributes early into a character’s build. By slowing down the leveling process, players will be given the opportunity to explore a hero’s skills and abilities at a more relaxed pace, rather than bum-rushing them with, hypothetically, a choice of six new moves after a single boss fight.

“In most RPGs, the amount of XP you need to level up increases as you gain levels in a curve, but our system is a straight line. This has led to pacing issues, such as skill points currently being rewarded too fast, which may be confusing and overwhelming to newer players. We want each decision to invest in a skill or Heroic to be more meaningful”.
