To bring more users back into the game, Crystal Dynamics has started to offer some in-game currency for all players who log in to Marvel’s Avengers between now and November 5th. That includes 1500 credits, 7500 Units, 250 upgrade modules and 20 DNA Tokens. You can get them starting right now.

Typically, games that require large player communities to stay active and engaged will do daily login bonuses. Why Crystal Dynamics hasn’t thought to do this is beyond me. Regardless, the game’s Single-Player campaign was a ton of fun and it had one of the best in-game storylines I have played in quite a while. We will probably have to wait a bit longer for the game’s next characters to be released but I’m willing to wait.

Marvel’s Avengers is out now on Stadia, PC, Xbox One and PS4. It’s coming to PS5 and Xbox Series S/X next year.

I know we are all bummed out that Halo: Infinite will not receive a release this year, but Monster Energy looks like they’re going to give us all a big present. That is, as long as you live in the US.

Players who have been participating in the Monster Energy 2XP event are eligible to receive a free digital copy of Halo 5: Guardians for as long as supplies last. If you haven’t played it yet, now is the perfect time to do it. Simply log into your 2XP account and redeem your code.

Here’s the best part, since this is a digital copy, it is highly likely it will play (through backwards compatibility) on the Xbox Series X or the Xbox Series S.

Halo 5 Guardians is out now exclusively for the Xbox One.
