'Marvel's Avengers' isn't working for some Xbox Game Pass subscribers
Marvel’s Avengers came to Xbox Game Pass on Thursday, and many people are saying it’s not working. Specifically, the game itself isn’t downloading at all for subscribers.
Over on r/XboxGamePass, there are loads of posts claiming Marvel’s Avengers either stops downloading before it’s finished or won’t begin downloading at all. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason behind the failing downloads, and the problems don’t appear to affect other games on Xbox Game Pass.
“I’ve tried downloading marvel avengers twice now,” user General_Media_3544 said. “It gets to about 10-15GB and just says installation stopped and starts over again.”
“I’ve been trying since Saturday to sort it and nothing works,” user dwm94 said in another thread about the issues. Others are claiming the game will nearly finish downloading before it fails. That’s a big deal when you consider that Marvel’s Avengers is a 125GB download.
Most of these posts don’t specify a platform, so there’s no telling if the problems are on Xbox, PC, or both.
Neither developer Crystal Dynamics nor publisher Square Enix has said anything about these problems yet, so it’s hard to tell if the right people are even aware. Considering Marvel’s Avengers joining Xbox Game Pass was seen by many as a second chance for the struggling beat’em up, it’s unfortunate that some are running into issues.
