Marvel's Avengers fans have been eagerly awaiting new content, and that kicks off officially today with the release of Kate Bishop's Taking Aim operation. Taking Aim will bring Kate Bishop to the game as a playable character, and as we've seen in previous footage of her, she will feature a mix of range with her trusty bow and arrow and melee with a katana that can slice and dice enemies up close. It will also feature a new narrative element in addition to the new operation and will feature new cosmetics as well, and you can find the full announcement of Kate Bishop's Taking Aim below.

We recently got an up-close look at some of Bishop's alternate costumes, which will be available via her Challenge Card, and several of them are pulled directly from the comics, much more so than previous character skins.
Bishop comes to the Avengers after being on a mission with Hawkeye, though since then Hawkeye has vanished as well, and Kate needs the team's help to find him. We previously got a look at Hawkeye's Operation as well, which shows him in a different reality that has the Maestro in charge, and the first steps towards that next chapter all happen in Taking Aim.
You can find the official description for Marvel's Avengers below.
