The August Development Update has been released, and with a number of details about the future of Marvel’s Avengers.

Most notably the announcement of the next hero. James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes. The Winter Soldier. Described as a hybrid brawl and marksman, The Winter Soldier will be the 12th playable hero to join the Avengers in their war against A.I.M.

Further details on him will be announced after the launch of version 2.6, the next major update for the game.

2.6 will bring a new warzone, “No Rest for the Wicked” the scientist supreme in desperation recovers M.O.D.O.K’s body and tries to revive the mutated scientist, and likely allow players to battle him outside of the scripted battle in the campaign.

This event will also start the Winter Soldier plotline, and will tie into the upcoming cloning labs, the newest high level endgame content that will be coming with Bucky.

They also would like to reiterate that they have no plans of stopping support anytime soon, with content in the works for next year already.
