Kate Bishop, Hawkeye’s mentee, is coming to Marvel’s Avengers tomorrow. She brings new combat abilities and a special mission to the cooperative superhero adventure.
“Missing since A-Day, she resurfaces after her investigation into Nick Fury’s disappearance results in her mentor Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) going missing as well,” reads a post on the official Marvel’s Avengers site. “As she unravels the mystery behind the sudden appearance of time-warping Tachyon Rifts, she uncovers a twisted new plan from AIM, which pushes her to work with the Avengers once again.”
Bishop’s character is equipped with a special arsenal of arrows that can teleport, tranquilize, and explode a target on impact. She can also teleport to different locations on the map, throw a smoke screen, and use special melee abilities.
Players will need to download the latest patch before logging on to play Bishop’s special mission, Operation Taking AIM. Another special mission that continues Bishop’s story will release once Hawkeye is added to the game in early 2021.
Square Enix, the owner of developer Crystal Dynamics, confirmed that Marvel’s Avengers sold below expectations last month. The game has struggled on all platforms, including Steam. Its concurrent player count has consistently been below 2000 players over the past month.
