Game company Square Enix has announced that the first new playable Super Hero for Marvel’s Avengers will launch as part of Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM this coming December 2020.
Operation: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM will be coming on December 8. It will add the new playable Super Hero Kate Bishop and a new chapter to the game’s ongoing Avenger’s Initiative story. Aside from that, it will also feature a powerful new villain called the Super Adaptoid. It will challenge the players with a combination of skills and weaponry that mimic the Avengers’ attacks.
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.
Marvel’s Avengers is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Marvel’s Avengers can currently be played via backwards compatibility on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Players who own the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game will be able to upgrade to the full next-gen version at no additional cost. Those moving their saves to next-gen consoles will transfer their player profiles and progression so they can pick up right where they left off. In addition, cross-gen play will be supported so PS5 players will be able to play with their friends on PS4 and Xbox Series X|S players can connect with their friends on Xbox One.
