The update also brings new narrative content, operation, and cosmetics.
At this point, it’s no secret that Square Enix’s crack at the superhero genre with Marvel’s Avengers wasn’t a success. The game seemed to sell well enough out of the gate, but its since been revealed the game has not yet recouped its development costs and was the main reason for losses in the company’s most recent quarter. Whether or not the game can recover is up in the air, but Square’s plan for it to do so is tons of additional content, and the first of that is available now.
The first batch of DLC for the game features Kate Bishop, a character that has used the Hawkeye moniker in the past (though isn’t doing so here) and is on a quest to find the original Hawkeye, Clint Barton. The update includes Kate as a playable character, continued narrative, new cosmetics, and a new Operation called Taking Aim. You can see a brief teaser for it below.
Marvel’s Avengers is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. The Kate Bishop DLC is live across all platforms. A native PS5 and Xbox Series X/S version is slated to come at some point in 2021.
