Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM coming to Marvel's Avengers on December 8

Square Enix has announced that a new update to Marvel's Avengers - titled 'Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM' - will launch on December 8.

This update adds the first post-launch playable character to the game, Kate Bishop, as well as a new chapter in the game’s ongoing Avengers Initiative story. The update also adds a villain in the Super Adaptoid.

Check out a deep dive video, description, and screenshot set below. Marvel’s Avengers is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. Next-gen versions are set to launch in 2021, and existing players can upgrade for free while maintaining their progress.

The lead-up to Taking AIM began with enigmatic new Tachyon missions that started appearing on players’ in-game War Tables several weeks ago. In Taking AIM, Kate Bishop, master archer and skilled gymnast, resurfaces after her investigation of Nick Fury’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.
Taking AIM’s story begins shortly after the conclusion of Marvel’s Avengers’ Reassemble campaign and is just the first half of the two Hawkeyes’ Story Arc. Clint Barton’s Hawkeye will then take the stage in early 2021 to complete the double-feature and lay the groundwork for what’s next in the Avengers Initiative.
