    • With those fixes we recommend turning on Dynamic Screen Resolution again (at your desired minimum frame-rate) to ensure you are able to stick to your desired frame-rate no matter how hectic the game gets. 
  • Improvements to vaulting. 
  • Decreased delay of loot drops. 
  • We have brought in some initial improvements to our support for ultra-wide and super-ultrawide screens, with us planning more for launch.

Again, thank you for all the feedback! We hope these fixes improve your BETA experience. We’re just weeks away from the launch of Marvel’s Avengers on September 4. If you run into issues this weekend, please let us know on any of the links below.
