The Marvel’s Avengers video game features the starting lineup of the MCU Avengers except one. Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Black Widow are all playable characters in the game, while Hawkeye was nowhere to be seen. But that changed today when Square Enix announced that Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye is heading to Marvel’s Avengers as a free character after it launches.
Within the accompanying teaser video, Hawkeye shows off his archery skills while Black Widow shares her astonishment. In the comics, Hawkeye was not one of the founding Avengers. But he was one of the first heroes to join the Avengers after the original lineup left the team.

Additionally, Square Enix noted that Hawkeye will be available in both co-op and the solo campaign. They also said that Hawkeye will have “unique” story missions as well. Square Enix indicated that this will only be the first expansion for the world of Marvel’s Avengers. Presumably that means more characters will eventually be added to the game.
Marvel’s Avengers will hit PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC on September 4.
