Marvel's Avengers is a game that many have mixed feelings about. When it was released last fall, it had one of the rockiest launches of a video game in recent memory—only topped by Cyberpunk 2077 a few months later.

The game, which should have been a runaway success, was plagued by an endless stream of bugs, and there was hardly any content past the game's campaign. For a title trying to be like Destiny, that's not something that can be an issue. 

Recently, War for Wakanda was released, providing a sizable addition to the game's story alongside the inclusion of Black Panther as a playable character. 

Of course, with Black Panther in the game, the team at Square Enix is looking to bolster his paid cosmetic library; and where better to look than that of the MCU

While the character's look from Avengers: Infinity War is already available, it looks like fans have another option on the way, courtesy of Captain America: Civil War.

On its official Twitter account, Marvel's Avengers revealed a brand-new outfit for its newly released playable hero: Black Panther.

The outfit is based on the character's appearance from 2016's Captain America: Civil War. The costume will be available for purchase starting on September 16 from the in-game marketplace.

The original costume from Captain America: Civil War can be seen above, and it looks like the team over at Square Enix did a perfect job at bringing the iconic look into Marvel's Avengers.

The outfit looks great, there's no doubt about that. Black Panther's first costume is widely considered by many to be his best to date.

After this one, though, there's not really any other cosmetics to pull from within the MCU–except for his Warrior Falls attire. Either way, Square Enix has been going nuts with all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe-inspired cosmetics. It would seem as if it believes that all of these outfits will solve the game's troubles.

Needless to say, it won't. The game, after over a year, is still lacking in a lot of areas. There remains an embarrassingly small number of villains, meaningless loot, little to no endgame things to do, and slow and spread out content releases.

Square Enix did recently put out a new roadmap, but it included nothing new and hardly made mention of the big things next on the schedule such as the release of Spider-Man on PlayStation systems.

Hey, if No Man's Sky can make a comeback, so can Avengers. Right?
