Fans of Marvel’s Avengers can download a brand new update on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Avengers update 1.4 is a big one, adding a brand new DLC character and story mission to the game.
Available as a free download, the new Marvel’s Avengers update adds Kate Bishop as a playable character.
It launches alongside the Taking AIM story mission, which begins by talking to Maria Hill in the SHIELD Substation Zero.
Kate Bishop is described as a master archer and skilled gymnast. She’s also a student of Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye).
After going missing following the events of A-Day, the story sees Kate Bishop once again working with the Avengers after the appearance of time-warping Tachyon Rifts.
“Kate Bishop – who first appeared in Young Avengers #1 – is a master archer and skilled gymnast. Missing since A-Day, she resurfaces after her investigation into Nick Fury’s disappearance results in her mentor Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye) going missing as well.
“As she unravels the mystery behind the sudden appearance of time-warping Tachyon Rifts, she uncovers a twisted new plan from AIM, which pushes her to work with the Avengers once again.”
