Here’s the crux of the article in video form

Marvel Strike Force has dropped a new update that consists of new costumes for characters like Doctor Octopus (No Way Home), Red Hulk (War Horseman), and Drax (Holiday Sweater).

Not only that, the developers have announced a new event named ‘Death Scourge’ along with new playable characters like Archangel, Nemesis, Captain Carter, and others.

However, there appears to be a problem that players started facing after it.

The affected gamers allege that when they start the game, the loading screen freezes at 17 percent and will not progress any further.

Normally, there’s a little bar at the bottom of the screen after a patch that says ‘Downloading’ but that seems to be missing as well.

Some gamers assumed it was a visual glitch and just left the game running for a while, but no progress was gained.

This issue seems to have popped up after a recent v6.6.0 update that was released on December 7 and affects all platforms.
