Fans look forward to more of Kate Bishop in action since Marvel’s Avengers first plagued the last addition to the list, and at the last military table our wish was granted because we saw that she had impressive skills and talked a little about the additions she was going to make. Today, along with War Zone Director Phil Terien and Senior Narrative Designer Nicole Martinez, we received even better and deeper video footage of their skills in the Crystal Dynamics community stream, and you can see the full stream in the video above. We have also received a summary of what will happen to Operation Bishop Kate – Take AIM, who will not have everything originally planned because of the necessary improvements.
We saw a dexterity tree with their heroic bait stand. In the basic version, a drone is created that shoots quantum arrows, although you can unlock new possibilities that make it even better. With Afterimage you can switch places with the distraction, while the self-destruct with Afterimage works well because you can teleport the drone and force it to explode, injuring the enemies around it.
The Warp Arrow is their attack hero, and it works like a long-range teleporter when you fire an arrow, creating an explosion that prepares them perfectly for juggling. You can then add elements such as a jumper or wormhole aimed at the bracket. Kate can teleport over long distances, but this allows her to create portals that allow her to teleport safely to Kate or Kate to the port. You can also add the Cloak of Oblivion, which gives extra armor to those who use this feature. The singularity allows you to create a gravity well by swimming and instead attract other enemies so you can launch attacks, followed by an explosion that drives them away.
We also saw their ultimate hero, quantum overdrive. This ability allows you to control multiple arrows with quantum energy, and you can release or recharge a burst, but these are additional features that allow you to get the most out of it. Quantum Storm allows you to fire energy projectiles with a sliding crossbow, and when the critical mass on the target is reached, they explode.
You can also unlock the Quantum False, which adds projectile energy to your sword, increasing the main damage you incur in melee battles and allowing your sword to reach its range.
We then saw her in action in the HARM room, and the passage between her katana and the bow (which can also shoot crossbow bolts with some skill) seemed incredibly fun and fluid.
You can watch all the new games in the video above, and we can’t wait to play them.
Earlier Scott Amos, director of the Crystal Dynamics studio, made a joke about the amount of content they can expect with every new hero that comes into play, starting with Bishop.
You’ll see it soon enough with our expansion of Kate Bishop, but of course for us Kate is the first kind of Hey look, here is a new hero with all kinds of new things, which has shorter versions, which has new sets, said Amos. Of course its size and shape is different from the Gathering Campaign, which is presented as a large enchilada with the six heroes, but when we introduce our new heroes, they will in fact be equipped with all the new skills and equipment that you would expect from a new hero.
