Kate Bishop, the other Hawkeye in the Marvel’s universe, officially joins Marvel’s Avengers as the first post-launch DLC character.
Bishop will arrive as part of the “Taking Aim” post-launch content and it will include a playable Bishop, who will have her own set of gear and abilities to unlock.
There will also be a new story mission and villain that ties into the overarching “Avengers Initiative” storyline. Crystal Dynamics also confirmed that some expansions will add new regions as well, expanding the scale of its live Avengers title.
Other parts of the War Table were dedicated to highlighting all the different types of content in Marvel’s Avengers, from end-level raids to gauntlet-style challenges, and more. At the start of the stream, Marvel’s Avengers teased Black Panther content with a new logo, but in a message said that out of “respect for a fallen true hero, we have altered what we are showing today.”
It’s likely the War Table had information about Black Panther content but out of respect for actor Chadwick Boseman, who died of colon cancer last week at the age of 43, Marvel’s Avengers opted to hold the announcement for a later time.
