Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s Avengers has had plenty of Captain America skins to choose from in the past. Now, the game is getting a new variant of the costume from the 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger, which takes the mask off of the iconic hero.
For those who already own the original helmed variant of the costume inspired by Captain America: The First Avenger, the unhelmed variant should appear at a discounted price in the game’s marketplace for 500 Credits. A bundle for both costumes is also available for 1,900 Credits (about $19), while the “unhelmed” variant is also available on sale on its own for 1,400 Credits (about $14). The regular version of the skin was added to the game in February 2022.
Selling unhelmed variants of Marvel Cinematic Universe skins is a new trend for Crystal Dynamics and something it seems keen on continuing. This is now the third “unhelmed” skin the team added into the game, and joins an unhelmed version of Captain America’s 2012 Avengers skin, as well as an unhelmed version of Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor from Thor: Love and Thunder. Many have voiced their complaints about this practice in the replies to tweets about these skins, noting that such a small change should be free for owners of the base costume.
Crystal Dynamics also announced in its War Table Weekly Blog last week, in celebration of the ongoing holiday season, most MCU and non-MCU outfits and all takedowns, emotes, and nameplates would be available for 50% off in the marketplace. This sale runs through January 5, 2023.
