Some players have gotten their hands on Marvel’s Avengers, but to build up to the global release on September 4th, Square Enix held a launch week War Table stream. In it, we got some updates on the content available from day 1 and what’s coming in the future.
Kate Bishop First Hero To Join
It was announced that Kate Bishop will be the first post-launch hero to join Marvel’s Avengers. Trained by Clint Barton, she is the second to bare the Hawkeye name and is as deadly as her mentor. Kate’s Operation, “Taking AIM,” kicks off in late October featuring a new villain and new mystery. Bishop comes with distinct Heroic Skills and takedowns that only an Olympic-caliber gymnast and master archer like Kate can pull off.
Her operation will work in tandem with the next, as Clint Barton’s Hawkeye Operation is coming in November. The pairs story based content is said to act as a double-feature and lay the groundwork for what’s next.
New heroes will be free to all players of Marvel’s Avengers. More details to be announced soon.
Daily & Weekly Challenges
Alongside the story mode and side missions, players will have a number of daily and weekly missions to tackle, as well as four new high-level mission types they’ll encounter as they progress through the Avengers Initiative. These include:
- Villain Sectors – These are 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 – These are treasure troves of resources, gear, and secrets that must be discovered and unlocked.
- AIM’s Secret Lab – This mission 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 – 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.
Finally, along with the daily missions, you can gain access to new costumes and equipment on a hourly or daily bases. You can interact with vendors and purchase with currency found in strong boxes found throughout the game.
