Marvel's Avengers launch War Table reveals Kate Bishop as first post-launch Hero

Today Square Enix held the launch edition of their War Table stream series for Marvel's Avengers, which is out this week for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. The footage revealed the game's first available post-launch character, as well as detailed four of the game's mission types that players will find in the game.

The first post-launch character is Kate Bishop, the other Hawkeye. Her operation is known as 'Taking AIM', which takes place after the main 'Reassemble' campaign and will be available at some point starting in October. Clint Barton’s Hawkeye will also be available post-launch, as a second part to Kate's story, which is currently planned for November. These post-launch updates will come at no additional cost.

As for the four mission types, they are described by Square Enix as follows:

  • Villain Sectors: Special missions that provide epic showdowns with powerful bosses that players will want to return to as their Heroes get closer to the game’s power-level cap of 150.
  • SHIELD Vaults: Areas that house treasure troves of resources, gear, and secrets that must be discovered and unlocked.
  • AIM’s Secret Lab: Co-operative missions only accessible after reaching the game’s highest power levels. Available once a week, the AIM Secret Lab raid will culminate in a massive boss fight influenced by how well players’ teams performed throughout the mission.
  • Mega Hives: A challenge that will put players’ full Super Hero roster to the test as they fight their way through a gauntlet of descending floors packed with enemies. The farther they go down, the higher the difficulty goes up, and once all their Heroes are defeated, players will have to start over from the very beginning.
