Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics revealed that Kate Bishop will appear in a post-launch update in late October. As part of a double-header story with the previously revealed Clint Barton Hawkeye (which comes later in November), Kate has her own unique skills in combat that set her apart.
In order to access this content, you’ll need to finish the ‘Reassembled’ campaign, which is the in-the-box story mode releasing this week. It should be noted that post-launch heroes like Kate and Clint will come at no extra cost and will feature storylines that include new villains and elements that move the plot past the base game.
The War Table presentation also highlighted a variety of high-level challenges including “villain sectors” which are missions where you take on a boss with heroes that are at or near the power level cap. “SHIELD Vaults” are secret missions that you can take on to find special materials, gear, and other secrets.
The AIM Secret Lab “raid” will require you to form a team of four skilled players and will end with a boss fight impacted by how well you’ve done. Mega Hives is a type of gauntlet where you’ll use your full roster of Heroes to progress through increasingly difficult encounters. If you lose your entire roster you’ll need to start from the beginning.
