It turns out we won’t have only one Hawkeye. A second one will be a part of the cast. The September War Table confirmed a playable Marvel’s Avengers Kate Bishop. She’ll be played by Ashly Burch and her storyline, Taking Aim, will be the first post-launch operation.
Taking Aim will immediately pick up where the game’s campaign leaves off. Kate will approach the Avengers mentioning that Clint is missing. She then observed him getting involved in some shadowy affair, which was teased during the third War Table. The announcement said her Operation will be a double feature with Hawkeye’s Operation. Marvel’s Avenger’s Kate Bishop will have her own equipment, skills, and storyline. She’ll have her own villain to face too. Also, like the main campaign, it can be played by one to four players.
Here’s the official Taking Aim Campaign description, which was shared during the stream.
Kate Bishop joins the Avengers to stop AIM’s dangerous new plan, but in the process they uncover more than they bargained for. Kate steps out of her mentor’s shadow and becomes an Avenger in her own right.
And here’s the trailer for her reveal.
Marvel’s Avengers will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 4, 2020. It will also be coming to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 and there will be free upgrades to those version.
