Hawkeye will come to Marvel’s Avengers in a free post-launch update.
Developer Crystal Dynamics added the bow-brandishing hero to the game’s roster during today’s War Table showcase.
Marvel fans who mainly know Hawkeye through the film universe may be surprised by his new buzzed look, which is a function of the source material that Marvel’s Avengers is primarily drawing on the My Life as A Weapon comics by Matt Fraction and David Aja.
Hawkeye was described as one way that Marvel’s Avengers will continue to grow after launch, but Crystal Dynamics didn’t clarify when exactly he will arrive. A timeline shown on-stream suggests he’ll be the second DLC character, but that’s both unclear and subject to change.
