After his prot茅g茅 made her way to the game in December, the original Hawkeye will join the roster of Marvel鈥檚 Avengers on March 18th. That same day, developer Crystal Dynamics will release the game鈥檚 long-promised PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S patch, which promises better graphics, smoother framerates and faster loading times for those playing the game on Sony鈥檚 and Microsoft鈥檚 latest consoles.

In its latest War Table video (via Polygon), Crystal Dynamics detailed what players can expect from Clint Barton. He鈥檒l have a similar playstyle to Kate Bishop, but you can look forward to subtle differences. For instance, instead of teleporting to traverse the map, Barton will use a grappling arrow. He also comes with a different set of arrows and active abilities at his disposal, one of which is his heroic that will bounce your enemies.

Even if you don鈥檛 plan to use Barton as your main hero, you鈥檒l still want to play through his Future Imperfect Operation. In the new mission, you鈥檒l face off against Maestro, an alternate version of the Hulk, against the backdrop of an Earth devastated by nuclear war and alien invasion. Hawkeye, his story mission and the update for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles are all free for current Marvel鈥檚 Avengers players.
