Game company Square Enix has announced that the first playable DLC super hero and star of the new Marvel’s Avengers Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM is now available for download for free.
Kate Bishop is performed by Ashly Burch. The new chapter in the game’s ongoing and expanding Avengers Initiative story introduces a new villain the Super-Adaptoid that will challenge players with a combination of skills and weaponry that mimic the Avengers’ own attacks.
The lead-up to Taking AIM began with enigmatic new Tachyon missions 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 can be played solo or with up to three friends to deliver the ultimate Super Hero experience. It 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.
Marvel’s Avengers is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. The game can be played via backwards compatibility on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Upgrades to next-gen will be free to get when they are available.
