Marvel’s Avengers is slated to launch in September, with the beta kicking off in August. While it did incite the interest of fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of the major fan-favorite characters missing from the game was Hawkeye.
After receiving feedback from many fans about the inclusion of Hawkeye, Marvel announced that Hawkeye will be present in Marvel’s Avengers. Here is when Hawkeye will be available in the game.
During Marvel’s Avengers War Table live stream on July 29, developer Crystal Dynamics revealed that while Hawkeye will not be a part of the six playable characters at launch, he will be the first new character added as part of the Avengers Initiative, the name for the game’s continued support post-launch. However, they didn’t specify a definite release date on which Hawkeye will be available in the game.
Hawkeye will be having his own story missions in Marvel’s Avengers and it can be played solo or in co-op. Marvel reveals that Hawkeye’s story will be different from the main campaign, and it will be available for all owners of the game free of cost.
