The third War Table stream for the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game was shown earlier today. Like the first and second War Table stream, Crystal Dynamics has given us some more juicy info about the game.
Post Launch Kate Bishop Hero
The main bit of news from today’s stream was the reveal of Kate Bishop as the game’s first post-launch hero. Her mission will begin shortly after the end of the game’s reassemble mission. This will be the first half of two Hawkeye story missions. The Kate Bishop content will arrive in October, with Hawkeye set to arrive in November.
Both of Kate Bishop and Hawkeye will be available to Marvel’s Avengers players at no extra cost and “will continue to move the entire narrative world forward.” Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have promised that we’ll learn more about the Hawkeye story arc in the near future.

New Mission Types
The stream also briefly touched upon daily and weekly missions that will be available at launch, with missions rotating constantly. Also announced were four new mission types that players will encounter as they play the game.
- Villain Sectors 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 are treasure troves of resources, gear, and secrets that must be discovered and unlocked.
- AIM’s Secret Lab is a mission that is 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.
