Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have announced that Marvel’s Avengers will launch for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on 18 March 2021 alongside the new Hawkeye playable character and Operation Future Imperfect story arc.

Clint’s bow skills are second to none in the Marvel Universe, and this version is inspired by his Ronin period to create his sword abilities, which makes him a powerful melee and ranged hero.
Whereas Kate blinks around the battlefield as a blur of never-ending strikes to multiple foes, Clint is the steadfast hunter, taking down his foes with powerful, precise hits one at a time until he’s the only one left standing. Clint’s Quick Reflex Intrinsic Ability allows him to sidestep enemy attacks and parry with a fast-staggering bow shot.
