Marvel's Avengers officially launches this Friday, September 4th. Those who pre-ordered are already playing the game now. To celebrate, Square Enix aired the third War Table stream earlier today. The focus was all the content available at launch along with the unveiling of another post-launch character. Check out the video and remember you still have a few days to get in on the early access!
About the Third War Table
Square Enix gave details on the daily and weekly missions along with the rewards you can look forward to. They also gave details about Villain Sectors, SHIELD Vaults, AIM’s Secret Lab, and Mega Hives. These are the four high-level mission types players will encounter while progressing through the story. The biggest reveal was the announcement of another post-launch character: Kate Bishop. Another Hawkeye joins the initiative and they complement one another.
Marvel's Avengers High-Level Mission Types
Villain Sectors are special missions that provide epic showdowns with powerful bosses. Players will want to return to these as their heroes get closer to the game’s power-level cap of 150. S.H.I.E.L.D. Vaults are treasure troves of resources, gear, and secrets that must be discovered and unlocked.
Players looking to test their mettle will look forward to teaming up with three friends to tackle AIM’s Secret Lab. This mission 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. The fight difficulty is influenced by how well players’ teams performed throughout the mission.
Mega Hives put players’ rosters to the test as they fight through a gauntlet of descending floors packed with enemies. The difficulty goes up as you descend. Once all heroes are defeated, players will have to start over from the beginning.
The Marvel’s Avengers War Table also revealed a new post-launch Hero coming as part of the game, Kate Bishop. Kate’s Operation, “Taking AIM,” kicks off in late October featuring a new villain and new mystery. Bishop comes withs kills and takedowns that only an Olympic-caliber gymnast and master archer like Kate can pull off.
Kate Bishop will be the first new Hero introduced to Marvel’s Avengers after its launch on September 4. Taking AIM’s story begins shortly after the conclusion of the game’s Reassemble campaign. It will be the first half of the two Hawkeyes’ story arc. Clint Barton’s Hawkeye takes the stage in November to complete the double-feature and lay the groundwork for what’s next.
These new post-launch Heroes will be made available to all Marvel’s Avengers owners at no additional cost. More information about the Hawkeye Story Arc, as well as additional post-launch content will be available soon.
