Square Enix revealed today more details and the release date for the highly anticipated Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM content for Marvel’s Avengers that adds Kate Bishop as a playable character.
Kate Bishop will be added as a playable character along with the new chapter in the game’s ongoing Avenger’s Initiative story, “Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM” on December 8 across all available platforms.
Here’s an overview of Marvel’s Avengers Kate Bishop content, via Square Enix:
In addition to a new playable Super Hero in Kate Bishop and the new chapter in the gameâ€™s ongoing Avengers Initiative story, â€œOperation: Kate Bishop â€“ Taking AIMâ€ will also introduce a powerful new villain, the Super Adaptoid, that will challenge players with a combination of skills and weaponry that mimic the Avengersâ€™ attacks.
The lead-up to â€œTaking AIMâ€ began with enigmatic new Tachyon missions that started appearing on playersâ€™ in-game War Tables several weeks ago. In â€œTaking AIM,â€ Kate Bishop, master archer and skilled gymnast, resurfaces after her investigation of Nick Furyâ€™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 â€œTaking AIMâ€ begins shortly after the conclusion ofÂ Marvelâ€™s Avengersâ€˜ Reassemble campaign and is just the first half of the two Hawkeyesâ€™ Story Arc. Clint Bartonâ€™s Hawkeye will then take the stage in early 2021 to complete the double-feature and lay the groundwork for whatâ€™s next in the Avengers Initiative.
Marvel’s Avengers is available now for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia. The next-gen version, PS5 and Xbox Series, versions will be available sometime in 2021.
