Crystal Dynamics announced the latest addition to its post-release Marvel’s Avengers roster on Tuesday: Kate Bishop.
Kate Bishop Is Coming to Marvel’s Avengers
In the comics universe, Bishop is Clint Barton’s protégé as well as a carrier of the Hawkeye mantle. Both characters will be playable in Marvel’s Avengers.
“The Avengers Initiative will evolve over time for years to come,” Crystal Dynamics said in a blog post on Monday.
“Each addition combines and builds over time to a much larger series of story arcs.”
Bishop — voiced by Horizon Zero Dawn star Ashly Burch — will be the first downloadable Avenger to get added to the game after launch.
Kate and Clint will each get a Hero Operation storyline of their own, but Crystal Dynamics describes theirs as a unique kind of “double feature.”
The game arrives September 4 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia, so we can expect Bishop to show up to the party shortly after that.
