Captain America’s war-torn suit from 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War is the latest MCU outfit in superhero brawler Marvel’s Avengers.
Inspired by the MCU, Marvel’s Avengers adds a Captain America’s Nomad appearance from 2019’s Avengers: Infinity War. The superhero smash fest allows players to regulate Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in either single-player or multiplayer, and it heavily relies on its hero skins for post-launch revenue. While the sport had a lackluster launch and a disappointing first year, developer Crystal Dynamics continues to support it in its second year and can be bringing Marvel’s Avengers to Xbox Game expire on September 30.
Since its 2020 release, Marvel’s Avengers has faced criticism for its technical issues, microtransactions, and lack of endgame content. Crystal Dynamics has continuously updated the sport with new content, including three new playable Avengers with their story campaigns. Kate Bishop, Hawkeye, and Black Panther brought recent locations and managers, with Black Panther’s War for Wakanda expansion being the game’s biggest update yet. Despite these additions, Marvel’s Avengers’ endgame content remains lacking, and a few argue development resources are more focused on buyable skins. Multiple outfits inspired by the favored MCU film franchise have steadily been coming to the sport, with Captain America’s discolored Avengers: Infinity War suit recently leaked by an accidental email advertisement.
Following the leak, Marvel’s Avengers has officially revealed Captain America’s Avengers: Infinity War suit via Twitter. The long-lasting appearance sees Chris Evans’ live-action portrayal of the character on the run from the govt, reflected in his suit’s darker coloration and lack of a chest star. The Nomad skin’s beard reflects Steve Rogers’s fugitive state within the film, though the skin does lack his long and unkempt hair. The outfit also maintains the MCU design of Captain America’s shield used for previous MCU skins – despite the character never actually wielding his shield within the film. The outfit is going to be available on September 30 within Marvel’s Avengers Marketplace.

MCU skins weren’t included in Marvel’s Avengers at launch, and that they quickly became a widely requested addition for the sport. Now Crystal Dynamics seems heavily focused on pumping out these skin, perhaps to the detriment of more important extras like endgame content. Iron Man’s suit from the first MCU film was added to the sport very recently, which provides the armored Avenger his iconic look from the very first MCU installment. With the apparent popularity of those skins, it seems likely that Crystal Dynamics will likely still release more within the near future.
Steve Rogers’s Nomad design in Avengers: Infinity War may be a memorable one, with the star-spangled Avenger put during a darker and more desperate place than ever before. However, it’s also noteworthy that the Infinity War suit is sort of almost like the character’s previously-added Avengers: Endgame suit, with Crystal Dynamics only wanting to make minor tweaks to make the more war-torn outfit. Combined with Cap’s beard (which seems almost like the one on Thor’s model), the Infinity War suit isn’t a unique addition to Marvel’s Avengers MCU skin repertoire.
Marvel’s Avengers are on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Google Stadia.
