Marvel’s Avengers will add Kate Bishop as a playable character in “Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking Aim” on December 8, publisher Square Enix and developers Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal announced.
Here is an overview of the content, via Square Enix:
In addition to a new playable Super Hero in Kate Bishop and the new chapter in the game’s ongoing Avengers Initiative story, “Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM” will also introduce a powerful new villain, the Super Adaptoid, that will challenge players with a combination of skills and weaponry that mimic the Avengers’ attacks.
The lead-up to “Taking AIM” began with enigmatic new Tachyon missions that started appearing on players’ in-game War Tables several weeks ago. In “Taking AIM,” Kate Bishop, master archer and skilled gymnast, resurfaces after her investigation of Nick Fury’s disappearance following A-Day leads to her mentor Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) going missing as well. As she unravels the mystery behind the sudden appearance of the time-warping Tachyon Rifts, she uncovers a twisted new plan from AIM, which pushes her to work with the Avengers once again.
The story of “Taking AIM” begins shortly after the conclusion of Marvel’s Avengers‘ Reassemble campaign and is just the first half of the two Hawkeyes’ Story Arc. Clint Barton’s Hawkeye will then take the stage in early 2021 to complete the double-feature and lay the groundwork for what’s next in the Avengers Initiative.
Marvel’s Avengers is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and Stadia. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions are due out in 2021.
