Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that Hawkeye is the first post-launch superhero coming to Marvel’s Avengers. Best of all, he’ll be available for free.
The character’s real name is Clint Barton, but he goes by Hawkeye. If you’re unfamiliar with him, he first appeared as a villain in Tales of Suspense #57 and later joined the Avengers. As you’d expect, he comes with a mix of arrows and melee combat.
Crystal Dynamics plans to include new missions alongside the new character. You’ll be able to play the Hawkeye campaign either solo or in co-op. And we’re told that hero drops going forward will also include free post-launch content.
Marvel’s Avengers is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 4. It is also coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X at the launch of both consoles. Square Enix is offering a free next-gen upgrade once those versions come out.
