The archer has a lot of tricks up his sleeve.
We’ve been getting a lot of gameplay videos for some newer or lesser known characters for the upcoming Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, such as Spider-Gwen, Ms. Marvel, and Miles Morales. Now it’s time for some old classics to show newcomers how it’s done. Last week Wolverine cut up the place, and now Hawkeye is going to take up the bow and arrow.
Most people will be familiar with Hawkeye through the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He looks a little different here, closer to his comic book look, which you can see below. While a bow and arrow may seem limiting on paper, Hawkeye has a ton of variations. He has piercing ammo, electrifying arrows, explosives, and a move that rains down a barrage of arrows on the mobs you have to fight through. The game also allows both automatic and manual aiming while taking on enemies. There doesn’t seem to have a Ronin variation to Hawkeye, but the series is known for its many costumes, so it’s entirely possible it’ll be somewhere in the final package.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order releases on the Switch July 19th.
