The Winter Soldier arrives in Marvel's Avengers on November 29th

The Winter Soldier will feature new animations, hero abilities, and a new skill tree, as well as his own mission chain "that sees the Avengers help him regain his confidence in his capacity for good and deal with the trauma inflicted on him by his captors." On the lighter side of things, completing this mission will get you "Bucky's iconic outfit."

Square Enix adds that Update 2.7 also brings the Cloning Lab Omega-Level Threat. "As seen in the No Rest for the Wicked warzone, Monica has revived MODOK but was unable to bring him under her control. The monstrous genius has now taken over AIM’s Cloning Lab, AIM’s most precious base and the source of the cloned villains that have plagued the Avengers. From there MODOK intends to take back up his crusade against powered individuals and you must stop him once and for all before he can put his plans into action." This Threat will apparently be "headlined by a climactic confrontation with the deranged genius to end the danger once and for all" in a new four-against-one fight, with MODOK utilising new tactics.
