Last month, Marvel's Avengers received an updated roadmap for its post-launch content ahead of its Xbox Game Pass launch. One of the biggest inclusions coming to the game was the first-ever raid, and now Crystal Dynamics has provided a glimpse into what players should expect to come across.

Based around the War for Wakanda expansion, players will be coming face to face with the notorious villain Klaw in the raid called Klaw Raid: Discordant Sound. The first bit of concept art reveals an underground environment with some extremely high-tech facilities.

Crystal Dynamics claims this is just "one of the areas you'll be visiting" and confirmed players will be able to experience this huge new piece of content before the end of 2021.

Of course, there's an elephant in the room that needs addressing - XP Boosts. These have recently been confirmed to be returning to the game after Crystal Dynamics promised they would never be introduced.

Comments on the concept art seem to be ignoring that raid entirely and instead focusing on the XP Boosts. Opinions are divided with some not understanding the big deal, whilst others are calling for the developer to pay attention to the community.

Whether it's something that will be addressed before the year's end - if at all - remains to be seen, but it's clear the topic isn't going anywhere. People's thoughts are all over the place, however, it's clear Crystal Dynamics needs to come forward and speak about the issue before it gets out of hand.
