Last November 3, 2021, Scopely released a new version of Marvel Strike Force Version 5.8.x. and when we updated the game, we may encounter the “Update Available” appearing several times. To resolve this new release not loading problem you may need to go to your App Store (for apple) or Play Store (for Android) and uninstall the game for a while. Don’t worry about your progress, as long as it’s linked to Facebook and or Apple ID/Google Play there is no harm in deleting and reinstalling had the same issue on my Android/IPad last week deleted app restarted iPad and reinstalled with no problems.
I believe you have to wait for at least an hour before you install again. This is just to make sure that all the data on your device cache are fully deleted. This will also make sure we have all the new files and game data installed.
Worrying about your account progress, google play store or apple app store will restore them for you once you re-install the game again. Install the game and the new release loading problem or issues are hopefully resolved.

- Text Update: Dagger’s Ultimate ability, “Sissone Attitude,” has been updated to clarify that, with Cloak, the attack gains extra Damage, and not an additional attack.
- Deathpool’s Passive ability, “Death Comes For All,” was clearing positive effects from a random enemy instead of the most injured enemy.
- Impact sounds for Shang-Chi’s Ultimate Ability, “Way of Fury” were sometimes not working correctly during battle.
- Closing the game after creating or editing a Saved Squad in the Blitz, Arena, Raid, or War tab was causing the team to only be saved on the Roster Tab.
