It looks as though Marvel’s Avengers has a game-breaking bug on PS5… and the only way to fix it right now is by deleting all your campaign progress.
According to player reports, the bug causes the game to crash every time you load it up, with many players claiming the game is currently unplayable as a result. The only fix, for now, is seemingly to reset campaign progress entirely:
“Our team is continuing to investigate the issue causing a crash for some PS5 players,” developers announced via Twitter. “We think we’ve identified a fix that is currently being implemented/tested. We hope to have more news by tomorrow morning and will continue to keep you updated.”
Go to Operations and Reset your Reassemble Campaign Progress. As soon as you become young Kamala on A-Day, force close the game from the PS home screen, then you should be able to start Avengers Initiative.

“In the meantime, here’s a workaround that is resolving the issue for some players – just note that it will reset your campaign progress: Go to Operations and Reset your Reassemble Campaign Progress. As soon as you become young Kamala on A-Day, force close the game from the PS home screen, then you should be able to start Avengers Initiative.”
This game-breaking bug comes at the worst possible time – during a double XP and resources week. Although the event should allow players to double their rewards between March 24 and March 31, it looks as though PS5 players have missed out on a large chunk of that.
So are you going to extend the bonus xp and resource events since we haven’t been able to play?

This isn’t the first controversy surrounding the game, either. Back last year, fans were in uproar when Marvel’s Avengers added paid XP boosts following its move to Game Pass. Just weeks later, Crystal Dynamics removed the boosts from the in-game marketplace, issuing an apology to players.
