Restarting the Marvel’s Avengers campaign, or starting a new game, is currently a point of contention among the fan base, since people can’t figure out how to do it. There doesn’t seem to be any way to start a new single player game in Avengers, so everybody’s looking for some kind of workaround, at least. Well, there is a way to start the campaign over, but you’re not gonna like it. So, without further ado, let’s see how to restart the campaign in Marvel’s Avengers.
How to Start a New Game in Marvel’s Avengers
To start a new game in Marvel’s Avengers, aka restart the campaign, you have to delete your save file and start over from the start. On PC, you’ll have to go into the game’s folder and delete the save file manually; at least, that’s what players on Steam are reporting. At the time of writing, this is the only way to restart the campaign and collect whatever you might have missed in your first go-around. Along with everything else, because you’ve just deleted your save file. It’s… not exactly ideal, but it’s the only method right now.
I honestly don’t know why they made the game this way. Hopefully, when the game launches fully on September 4th, there will be some sort of patch that lets you replay the main campaign missions like a normal person. Until then, you’ll have to suffer the indignity of binning your save file and starting from scratch. This is going to be a point of contention among the fan base, to be sure, and it’ll only get worse when everyone gets access to the game.
And, well, there you have it, that’s how you restart the Marvel’s Avengers campaign. If you need further assistance with the game, check out some of our other guides.
